Tomorrow we'll begin to get a feel for how exactly these 2010 U.S. Nationals Tickets will sell. I'm still a bit skeptical...I have a feeling getting people to buy an all event ticket for a competition spanned over 10 days is a bit much.
But Spokane is the King at selling Nationals tickets. In 2007 they shattered the record for ticket sales so perhaps they'll bhe able to do the same again...or at least match the previous sell.
What I can say definitively is that Spokane will put out the best show possible. Attending Nationals in 2007 was amazing, it was a figure skating event like none other. The mood in the building was electrifying and unforgetable. The entire city embraced the event and all the people were friendly and opening towards everyone in attendance.
If I decide to return to Spokane (if?) in 2010 it will definitely only be for one of the weekends, and I get the feeling a lot of figure skating fans feel this way. Well have to wait and see...
