    So excited for St. Paul! Looking forward to seeing all your lovely faces.

    Oh and there was a heat wave on Saturday of that week in 2008. I even unzipped my coat.

    I hope I'm still near enough to St. Paul in 2016 to go since I just missed attending in 2008. I want to finally go to a skating competition!

    I wonder what made the USFS decide to announce where Nationals are going to be so far ahead of time. Not just for 2015 either but 2016. Have they ever announced two cities at the same time?

    IIRC, both cities were finalists to host the 2014 Nationals. The USFSA probably offered the two cities the option to host Nationals in 2015 or 2016 when Boston was selected for 2014. By announcing this far in advance, the host cities should have the ability to do a good job with marketing and promotion.

    If you're looking for something else to do in Greensboro, you should go to the International Civil Rights Museum. It's an amazing place. It is fairly new and is housed in an old Woolworth's building that was the site of a famous lunch counter sit-in. The presentation is very well done.

    ^ ITA. This is the first thing we did in Greensboro before we checked into our hotel (and before the week of competition began). A teacher colleague who grew up in the south & participated in the lunch counter sit-ins told us about it once she knew we were going to Greensboro.

    It used to be that way. I remember buying Nationals tickets two years out and Worlds in 2003, three years out. I guess that it really made sense because they probably had two really strong bids from these two cities for 2014. Why go through the process of having them re-submit new bids for subsequent years when USFSA knew what they would be getting? I'm sure that all are totally thrilled, especially with the lead time to plan.

    Re Greensboro, we went downtown to the art gallery area, and there was a nice artist coop building with lots of reasonably prices crafts. We also drove to Winston Salem where there are a lot of artisan stores. A number of them had closed during the recession, but I read an article that said that they are reopening and it is getting back to the vibrant art community it once was. I got a lot of bday and Xmas present shopping done in January!
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I just got the latest email blast from Greensboro (see below) I am tempted to go ahead and buy, but does anyone know how they assign seats? I would prefer an aisle even if it's higher up! Normally I don't do the spectacular, but it's basically impossible to get out of GSO Sunday night so.. might as well stay

    "With the hottest months of the year just around the corner, North Carolina 2015 is offering a sizzling promotion for All-Event Ticket Packages to the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. For every All-Event Package purchased during July and August 2013, NC 2015 will provide a complimentary Skating Spectacular ticket (same seat as the All-Event Package)!

    This is an amazing offer that provides great added value to your All-Event Package purchase. There will not be other opportunities like this for All-Event Ticket Package purchases, so we suggest you take full advantage today. Remember, the sooner you purchase, the better the opportunity to score the best seats available.

    To place your order, follow this link http://northcarolina2015.com/Tickets.aspx. Print out your order form and fax or mail it today. (Your order must be received during by Aug. 31, 2013, to be valid for free Skating Spectacular tickets.)"

    Of course reading this made me think that St. Paul is REALLY going to have to sell hard. I don't think I can do both Nationals and Worlds unless St. Paul has a GREAT deal. I know Worlds will cost a fortune but it's a lot less likely we get another one of those anytime soon.

    Why do they keep going to the same locations for the US Nationals, in such a short time? IMO others should be given the opportunity (like Phoenix )

    Because these places are willing to host?

    I know everyone is thinking about Boston right now, but Championship Weekend tickets for 2015 Nat's in Greensboro go on sale on Friday (Sept. 13th.)
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I got the email, but it was a little weak on where you go to buy them? Ticketmaster? Guess I will figure it out Friday. (Only doing the weekend now. I might buy some individual tickets later )
