Notes From 2005 Nationals - Portland, Oregon
Had Jr. Pairs Fs, Sr, men SP and Sr. Ladies Sp today.Went skating for a half hour
or so between Jr. Pairs and Sr. Men. Very crowded public session as the small
mall rink had a group in, but at least I made it so there was a point to having
put the skates in the bag at all. Collins party in the evening. Very busy this
year - saw a lot of folks and had some yummy free food and drinks. Thanks to Tommy
Collins for the fun!!. Sr. Men was a huge thrill. I was so happy for Evan, Danny
and Mauro. It was just a great event. So many of the guys have triple axel now.
Just amazing. Some of the judging was squirrley, but the skating was, for the
most part, just superb. They clear the arena to the food area between events and
then they shut almost all the food cuz the arena thinks they are clearing the
WHOLE arena. Stupid. Oh well.
