    Skating Club of Boston has a booth; however, they are not selling All Event Ticket packages for the 2016 WC. Dash Tours has a booth and is selling tour packages for the 2016 WC.

    What's "Skate Radio"? How does it work in the arena?

    It's a little closed-system walkie-talkie with three channels: NBC (only when it is broadcastinig), IceNetwork commentary (I think only for senior events), and a technical caller with one or more other people (only for senior events). People on FSU have said that the technical caller feed is available from the IceNetwork.com main page by clicking on "Ice Desk" or something like that. I haven't tried to get the caller commentary online since I'm in Boston.

    Has anyone seen a total attendance figure for Nationals? I like to compare the figures on my list; it goes back to the 90s.

    Found my answer on Twitter from Lynn Rutherford: "Total attendance 108,946 for 2014 Prudential U.S. Championships; 13,980 for ladies final, most since 2002 ladies final #Boston2014"

    Total number is higher than the last two years.

    I was not at the US nationals, but from TV viewing I got the impression that the fans there were REALLY nice- very supportive of the skaters- when they skated well and when they did not. The way they encouraged Mirai for her exhibition was so touching. I think the fan reaction drove Doug Razzano to tears, after he skated so well in the LP. I know from experience at other nationals/worlds that fans are always very supportive of skaters, but somehow the fans in Boston came across as even more so.

    Ladies Long was very full. I actually had to sit in my assigned seat. (I started abandoning it, it was in the center of a row)
    Fans overall in Boston were supportive and knowledgeable Of course they have a lot of skating there. I can't think of many clubs that could put an entire team of cute little boys in tuxes out as sweepers. (And they were just adorable and all little boys)
