    Thanks for posting your experiences.

    Yes, Jason Brown was full of energy at the M&G. He seems like he genuinely enjoys the experience of meeting fans and that's EXTREMELY rare. Hands down best skater experience I've had, would be nearly impossible to top.

    I got to talk to D/W briefly (waited until the large crowd around them thinned out). I asked Czisny about her competitive status and she said something to the effect that she was unsure and would take it day by day (as she recovers from her surgery).

    Everyone was generally pleasant...it was a good experience overall. Definitely one of the better M&G sessions I've been to (so many of them feel rushed!)

    Not entirely sure what I'm more impressed by: Max's incredible control and balance with his guards on, or the way Ryan just effortlessly picks him up.

    New dance team: Aaron/Bradley? Not a bad rotational lift, shame that Ryan grabbed him in the wrong way and stopped him hitting a better position :p

    Found another blog review of Stars on Ice dated May 6th (don't know which city but it was one of Max Aaron's stops and includes a smiling Charlie White photo): http://thehesaidshesaidexperience.com/2014/05/2014-stars-on-ice-tour-2/

    Same blog also published an interview with Mirai Nagasu and Max Aaron on May 20th: http://thehesaidshesaidexperience.com/2014/05/interview-mirai-nagasu-max-aaron/

    Max Aaron took a group selfie at the Seattle show - from a side angle: http://instagram.com/p/oUUF34i5ef/
