  1. All good points. I'll just add that last year a nice satellite lent me a fleece blanket to wrap my legs. It's big enough so I could sit on it, too. Since the chair was hard plastic, the blanket really helped.
  2. If anyone is looking for an all-event ticket for Worlds next March, I have one extra.
  3. One of the ACI days last year I didn't have enough time after getting food from the grocery store nearby, so I just ate it inside the venue. I tried to eat it discreetly. No one seemed bothered. No one checked my bag. I think I carried the food using a bag from the grocery store (which serves decent cooked food by the way). The people at the gate didn't seem bothered, either.
  4. I was standing on the back most of the time. Security passed behind me all the time. They asked someone near me to put away her camera. I didn't see the camera, but the face of the security guy was pretty stern.
  5. It’d a gamble per the official camera policy (pasted below). Yup, those plexiglass panels obstruct views. That’s why I stood on the back much of the time. Camera Policy At Skate Canada events, spectators are permitted to use small point and shoot cameras for personal use only. The following guidelines will be enforced: No flash photography No camera bags in venue No use of professional cameras and/or detachable lenses Camera cannot interfere with other fans’ enjoyment Any resale of photography or posting photos on professional websites is strictly prohibited Absolutely no video recording is allowed. Only accredited coaches and team managers may be permitted to videotape their own skater/team from rinkside during that skater’s/team’s practice or performance. If athletes wish to obtain a video of their programs, they may purchase a copy from the licensed video distributor on site if applicable. Spectators not abiding by these restrictions risk having their camera confiscated by venue security staff. Additionally, Skate Canada staff reserves the right to restrict use of other types of cameras should they feel the quality and/or type of camera fail to protect the athletes’ and/or event’s interest
  6. I saw security guys issued serious warnings multiple times. There are plenty of cameras (such as Panasonic FZ 1000) with mega-zoom lenses. A lady standing next to me was using the said model the whole time last year. Security walked right behind us many times. No problem at all because the lens is not detachable or blocking neighboring people’s views.
  7. That’s their official policy. The enforcement was somewhat selective based on what I saw last year. If you want to be safe, bring a camera with a non-detachable lens.
  8. Who knows? Maybe we will end up finding a large crowd of Yuzu fans there. Would you like to join us?
  9. I booked a 4-bed hostel room (all bunk beds) in downtown Kelowna for Oct. 24 (check in date) to Oct. 28 (check out date). It's a 17-minute walk to the venue as the map shows http://bit.ly/2IrWaNr. If you're interested in sharing, PM me. There are two other girls/women who might share this room. Depending on how many people who end up sharing it, the total cost for all four nights ranges from USD$106 to $212 per person. The bathroom is in the hallway, and some reviews say the walls are thin.
  10. Do you know when men's practice normally is? The all-event ticket says practice for Thu. (Oct. 24). If it's usually in the morning, I'll book my outbound flight to either arrive the day before or just let go of it so I could have relaxed layovers.
  11. My fingers automate themselves in ordering a ticket before I could think it over Next step, plane ticket and lodging. Anyone finding a roommate?
  12. Never imagined I'd have fantasies over a bunch of mannequin torsos ... I mean, imagine Yuzu modeling for a sculptor or painter like Michelangelo; imagine a David-like sculpture with Yuzu's physique.
  13. Last year more single day tickets were released hours after they ran out, so try again later.
  14. When the code works, how much should the total of 3 single tickets be? My screen shows $104.8 before I check out. Edit: $104.8 was CAD. My total came to USD$81.8.
  15. I did get another seat, which is more central but twice as far from the ice as this section122-rowE-15 seat I'm selling. I can use only one after all.
