    No Sylvia I don't have access.

    And yes I plan to go however like clockwork something comes up every year in my life when this event happens (e.g. family event out of town) so I'm just expecting to be foiled in my attempt. Crossing my fingers...

    Corianna, where do you live? Perhaps if you could get yourself on the subway to somewhere in North York I could pick you up? My mom lives near York Mills station....I usually go back and forth between her place and the rink.

    Coriana I am sure there is a bus from finch to the rink.
    If luckiest is going she could easily pick you up and drop you at finch. I am happy to do so on the weekend as well.

There are commuter trains but they don't come back to down town at night. But I've a month to figure it out.
    Sounds like me too, Corianna. I barely venture into other suburbs unless there is a need too, and I hate driving into the city for obvious reasons. Glad that Emdee and Luckiest1 have offered to pick you up and drop you off the train station so I hope you are able to join them at Thornhill.

    Alright, I will try to scrutinise all the pictures with Patrick's one to 'spot the similarities' when I have more time. But as Corianna said, since this gym sounds 'new' to Patrick and Sylvia's posting a pix of Patrick with Abbot, maybe we can confidently assume he's in Detroit S. C.?
    (Sorry, didn't read Abbot's tweet properly - that Patrick is indeed training in DSC.)

    Thanks VarBar. Patrick looks happy and training hard with fellow elite skaters. Can't wait to hear from those who are going to Thornhill competition about his LP. Counting the days. Brissie is 10 hours ahead of Toronto so I am not sure whether I could stay up late to watch his LP live streaming. But I will surely try!!!

    The off season is good for taking time to review wonderful performances.

    Oh, my word. That night.....

    That was a weird night. We saw Joey Russell outperform Kevin Russell to get a World Championship slot (becoming the first representative of Newfoundland). We saw Shawn Sawyer give the performance of a lifetime - recalling that his choice to comeback wasn't universally supported - everyone had already given him the night. And then there was this. I knew Patrick Chan was brilliant. I knew that season was going to be a struggle and I was prepared for that. But I wasn't prepared for this. I knew he could land quads and I figured his decision to go for a two-quad, 1 triple axel LP was the right choice. But I didn't think it was going to pay off so quickly. I was having heart palpitations throughout and when it was over, the level of adrenalin I had was just insane.

    After watching that skate, listen to the earbud commentary provided at the event, featuring Jeff Buttle. The giggles, the cheers, the gasps (the little dash of snark) - the sheer astonishment from these guys..... sends chills down my spine every time.

    I too love buttles commentary of that night. I wasn't there but have revisited that program time and time again. There is a shot of Joey and Shawn sitting and waiting for Patrick to skate. All three of them were canadian junior champions..
