    Any announcement of Skate America location yet?

    Has a site been announced yet and if not any idea what time of year they usually announce it?

    Maybe May. If we are lucky.

    In fact let's just get it all over with right here:

    East West
    Lake Placid no airport
    Mid-West shuttles
    14 hours driving 8 hour flight, 2 trains, 5 hour bus ride
    Reading Sarasota Providence
    :lynch Portland :lynch Detroit San Jose

    I have an empty lot in Snow Hill Maryland they can have it in. No hotels or airport. Who needs those if no-one will go after all the Worlds

    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    The announcement gets later and later every year. No city seems to want SA. It's so early in the season that the skaters aren't ready for prime time yet. And then there are the last-minute withdrawals.

    I heard the announcement could be made "soon."

    I would love it if SA would just cater to my every needs. Then it could stop all this nonsense, as the only person it would have to please would be me. Hear that IJS--start kowtowing to me or I will type very angrily in your general direction and cast aspersions on your intelligence and sexual proclivities of your ancestors.

    And have you read the RFP from USFSA? No wonder no one wants it. They want to be treated as if they were bringing the Super Bowl to town LOL

    With US Nationals in Boston, it sadly won't be Providence, or my skating tickets budget is going to explode next year.

    Is it a certainty though that it'll be the first GP competition ?

    Seeing as the GPF is in JPN, I'm afraid they might mix it up to not let the NHK competitors suffer,
    Afraid because i'll be in north america from sep - nov only

    ^ 2009 Worlds was in Los Angeles, and 2011 Skate America was in Ontario, very close to Los Angeles.

    Skate America has been on the West Coast for the past 3 years, so if the above rumor is true, seems to make sense that it'd be the East Coast's turn this year.
