Every time I went the place was a ghost town. Very nice to skate at. I think it was a poor choice for a location though.

I skated there several times. As did my brother. It was always packed.

Then again, I can't imagine a lot of people would want to go to an NHL sponsored arena to figure skate. That's probably the issue.

it felt packed because there were only 4 rows of seating. It was rediculous.

I was usually only there for tournaments. That might be why too.

I was one of the dozen people that went last year. It's 5 minutes from my house. The venders were cool but they got screwed on attendance. I really hope this guy can pull his head out of his ass this year.

I'm pretty sure it isn't happening anymore. The event coordinator is MIA...

i agree I would rather go to a swap meet than dick around with Craig's(pain-in-the-butt)List. I go to a Buggy builder meet in Lansing every year and it's a great place to get good deals and see new stuff

My 2 cents....
