Anyone remember this legendary exhibition?
‘Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to take a brief intermission before Yuzuru Hanyu loses all of his clothing.’

Carpool to Skate America 2017?

Is anyone going to SA 2017 who is interested in carpooling? I really want to go since it’s in my state and some of my absolute favorite skaters are going to be there, but the public transit to get there is way too expensive and takes entirely too long. I would put in gas money + meals on the road, and could be picked up from either Buffalo NY or Binghamton NY depending on what’s easier. Please shoot me a message if you are going/know anyone who is going who might be able to help!
