    The All Event for the section I sat in last time is $350. Not horrible

    After looking at the seating chart and the "special" $995 front row seats, I am going for the $850 ones. The 24 million dollar arena makeover and real padded seats should improve this already great event.
    Faryn and Hill (I think) are back doing this and they listen to the fans and are easy to work with. I like the event being held there before. I will call them and see if the front row seats are folding chairs again...

    I thought the shuttle system worked fine. I don't remember ever having to wait long at the arena, and the shuttle was usually at the hotel at the stated times. You always have to allot a bit more time to get somewhere. If you want to get to the arena at noon and it takes 10 minutes to get to the arena, don't depend on the shuttle that leaves at 11:50 to get you there at precisely the exact time. That's just common sense whenever using public transit.

    The shuttle in Greensboro was great! There were even buses still out there the night security threatened us with the police if we didn't leave the arena.

    I agree. The shuttle system was great. They even had buses waiting after the filming of the two skating segments that were part of the Rise premier, which finished long after the Skating Spectacular had concluded.

    I agree with all of the folks who said that the shuttle in Greensboro was terrific.

    Where did it go. I know my hotel was not on a shuttle route. But since it was a LOT cheaper to fly into Raleigh and drive to Greensboro I had a car. I bought the weekly parking pass and that was great. Hope they do that again, but.....

    I agree with the group that the shuttle worked great. The transportation team did a great job counting spectators to make sure that every seat was filled on the bus. I decided to go at the last minute. I'm a 5.5 hour drive. I bought last minute tickets from a person that had club seats They club seats included food and drinks! The main hotel was HUGE. There was a mall in the parking lot of the hotel and other restaurants around the hotel. This was an enjoyable and easy nationals.

    Found this under the FAQ

    Q: Will you be offering a shuttle service from area hotels?
    A: Plans for spectator shuttle service will be made available soon. Only Official Host Hotels of the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships will have shuttle service.


    The offical hotels are the Shearton, Doubletree and Hampton Inn (as of right now, maybe the will add more doesn't seem like a lot to to me, but that Shearton is huge so maybe they won't have to?)

    Also the FAQ says mini-or weekend packages will be offerend this Fall.

    Last time, I believe the Airport Marriott and Proximity Hotel had their own shuttles you could sign up for when you made your reservations. They may again

    I loved the last US Nats in Greensboro and I'm excited to head back there in 2015. We didn't stay at one of the official hotels but walked to and from one of the official shuttle stops every day and had no problems aside from it being cold (we volunteered so we had automatic shuttle passes).
    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Oh my goodness....St. Paul was SOOOOO cold! People thought I was nuts for heading to St. Paul, MN, in January, on purpose, to sit in a cold arena, LOL
