Greetings, skating fans!
I have never been to a live skating competition. I saw a tour in 1993, the Aretha Franklin/skating combo in 2011, and a few skates from Emanuel Sandhu in, maybe, 2010. I have been seriously considering going to Skate America, and I appreciate your feedback.
Is it too late in the game to make a decision once and for all and to say "yes"? By that, I mean: are there still all-competition tickets with good seats and is there accommodation that isn't crazily expensive? Especially for people who have been doing those searches recently, you may have a good answer. Going along with that, should I make my decision now or do you reckon I have some leg room to wait a bit before deciding for sure? I am leaning towards just saying I'll go because I was VERY impressed with the list of who is scheduled to attend. Many of the skaters are the only active skaters I would pay to see.
Finally, if you have any other tips for a first-time competition attendee like me or any feedback at all, please type away. I am sure many of you have great insight into what might make the experience unforgettable instead of just okay.
Thanks in advance!
