Happy just now to learn that the US Junior Grand Prix event will be in Lake Placid again this year from 29 August to 2 September. I hope to go, and to encourage all you fans to go. I went to the JGP event there a few years ago, and it was a delightful experience. The ticket was almost free (all events $25 I think), the competition thrilling, and the setting serene. Saw Ross Miner and the Shibs, among many others. Oh, the scary junior pairs!! Not many fans were there, but I had a ball hanging out with Ann and Euterpe. I stayed at Art Devlins which was inexpensive, well located, and perfectly nice. I know Lake Placid is a hike for some people but it's worth the trip. See you there?
