    My understanding is that the venue was switched this year due to the Capitals training schedule. When we were finally informed that Kettler just wouldn't be available this year, Mike got right to work and contacted Gardens Ice House in Laurel. We have had basically 4 weeks to put the whole thing together! Reminds me of the 1st year of the show, when Margie Weiss called me in August and said they were putting a show together.... in September and could I help out We got the job done then and it's getting done now! The Weiss family are amazing in their ability to get this production together - and for such a great cause.

    ^ Thanks for the clarification, I was wondering...so they DID try to get Kettler but weren't able to. OK.

    Wish I could attend. I'd love to see The Next Ice Age.

    What a pleasure it is to see the beaming faces of those young skaters who receive the support from Michael Weiss' fundraising. The best to him for his efforts!

    We're going! I understand the original date had been for Saturday, September 14, which would have been Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar). So glad that the date was changed to Sunday. Yay for the Weisses & their commitment to supporting up & coming promising skaters!

    I'll be going as well, although not having a car makes this location a bit more challenging.

    Still though, I've greatly enjoyed past shows, it's a great cause and it's also a unique photo opportunity. Hopefully I'll get some good shots to share with all.

    Only one week til the show! Did you know that there is an awesome silent auction as part of the event? Lots of great skating related stuff - as well as other goodies! It's another way that the MWF raises money for the skaters. Check out http://www.michaelweiss.org/2013auction.htm for a list of items in the silent auction. While there will be live silent bidding on show day - you can also email a bid in. Info available on the link. Remember that pretty much all the $$ raised is given to skaters in the form of scholarships. Hope to see some of you there

    It's great to see so many top skaters have been committed to this show for so many years. Michael and his family have been the backbone for years but lots of other skaters contribute their time and talent to make this a success. It's refreshing to see legendary skaters like Brian and Katia (and Ilia who has skated numerous times) eager to help young skaters coming up in the sport.
