    It does look cool, I like how she manages to keep the flow during the move, Max must be a relatively light fellow. Where's Paul anyway?

    Well, Max is that, but also Piper is a strong gal!

    SATURDAY, JUNE 15

    Skate for Hope 10th Anniversary Show


    My lovely town of Columbus, Ohio plays host to Skate for Hope, one of the premiere figure skating exhibitions each off-season. Over the past ten years, an amazing $500,000 has been raised for the Stefanie Spielman Fund at the Ohio State University James Cancer Center and The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. I had the opportunity to attend the show on Saturday night, and it featured an amazing cast including both of the current US National singles Champions, a former Olympic Champion, several other Olympic and World competitors, and over 130 young skaters and adults!

    The nice thing about exhibition skating is that the quarter-turn cheats, the changes of edge at the last minute, the number of revolutions in spins, and all of that other nit-picking is thrown out the window. Falls here aren't going to get you a mandatory one-point deduction on top of the -3 grade of execution; instead, the skaters get up with smiles on their faces.

    Tony Wheeler's very positive review of the show: http://www.flutzingaround.com/2013/0...sary-show.html
    Next year, Skate for Hope will feature two shows! It will remain in Columbus, and will also be held in Estero, Florida. If you are near either of these areas, I highly recommend attending and seeing some great skating during the quiet months of the year.

    Partial videos:

    Rippon's "A Song for You": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB8zeuwjwpQ
    Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmDVW0O5zLg

    I believe IceNetwork eventually will put up videos from the show like last year, including backstage interviews by Doug Mattis.

    Great show in Cowtown Saturday night! It took me 10 minutes to drive over to Nationwide Arena in the Arena District & I found parking space right in front. Nationwide Arena is one of the most convenient places I've ever been to see a show (Attention Columbus convention people - why no Nationals here yet??) Next someone gave me a free ticket for the show - thank you kind lady & I will pay it forward by sending a donation to the organization.

    I've become a regular at this show. I really like the structure of it, which is based on the young skaters raising funds for cancer research so they can participate in the performance. These are not primadonnas demanding their moment in the spotlight, but kids who rolled up their shirtsleeves & did some worthwhile work to earn their spot. There is a wide range of ages & skill levels & you can tell they have tried to polish their moves & are happy to be there. Good for them & it's keeps me clapping for the whole two hours!

    The standout numbers for me this year were Adam Rippon, Christina Gao, Emily Samuelson & Lee Harris, & Jeremy Abbott.

    See you next year Skate for Hope!
