Since the communication said Canada was allowed to enter two per discipline I had assumed the USFSA and Skate Canada would have been in communication about this. I also found it odd that a country not hosting the event would get more spots than other countries.
I hope Canada will take advantage of this event
Perhaps Skate Canada might think that getting skaters like Osmond into a Senior B would be worth missing camp? A solid score there would help her a lot.
Closest hotel is Marriott University Park It east of Steiner (local name for the rinks). It is in research park and very close to the University of Utah - Not a lot of restaurants but that is better than it used to be. On the other hand it is right next to the foothills. If you are a runner or hiker, it would be great.
Most hotels are downtown - The nicest are Little America/GrandAmerica and Marriott. Smaller hotels/inns are plentiful. You will probably need a car. Trax does go up the hill to the University, but it is still a bit of a hike to the rinks.

Plaza Hotelis right around the corner but I don't know how good it is. It should be fine - I just don't know. It is also just a block from the brand new City Creek Center - lots of shopping.

I really hope there's a webstream.

Any insiders know when tickets and a schedule with times might be available? I'd like to book my flight soon. September will sneak up on us!

I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
Things have changed in the last 20 years! Good deal!
Any word on a schedule and how to purchase tix (and how much)? The basic sched posted upthread was helpful, but I'd like to know specific times before I book a flight.
