“The event was as busy as we anticipated,” said ISI Skating Programs & National Events Director Kim Hansen. “The 2,383 performances over the three days made for some long but fun hours, and the rinks were both full from the early mornings well into the evenings. The final day of team events was exciting as all of the teams really went out of their way on props and costumes and for some, this experience was a first, which was fun to see. We had six national referees at the event and they worked very hard all weekend long.”
