Skate America Arrival Day

Hello from Ontario, California! Today was a beautiful sunny day in the Inland Empire after the cool morning fog disappeared. So far, the area seems to be a great spot for a competition. The ride from the airport to the official hotel took less than ten minutes, the arena is within walking distance from the hotel, and there's a huge outlet mall a mile away. Many restaurants and fast food options are also nearby.

Tomorrow's practice day kicks off with the men followed by ice dance. Will we get to see Richard Dornbush's new Beethoven short program? Meryl Davis and Charlie White's new "Die Fledermaus" free dance? Who will wear their costumes to practice -- their real costumes? And how many of skating's greatest hits will we hear?

I'm looking forward to finding out the answers to all these questions and more tomorrow! Let the Senior Grand Prix season begin!


  1. Welcome to California. I hope you'll let us know how do you like Meryl and Charlie new programs.

  2. Looking forward to all your reports.
