ISU Grand Prix 2018/19 (the GP Final will be in Vancouver)

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

I suspect that the small arena at UBC will be quite full for the GPF, especially with the popularity of figure skating with Japanese fans.

I wonder why they chose this small arena, I would think they could fill the Canucks arena (can't think of its name right now). Perhaps they'll reconsider if it doesn't conflict with the NHL schedule.

I believe part of the rationale for a smaller venue is to have it look full on TV (plus a lower cost). I think the "ship has sailed" with respect to any possible relocation since tickets have already been sold.
