Non Genealogy post US Figure Skating
From January 14, 2010 Spokane hosted the US Figure Skating Championships and the winners would go to Vancouver to represent the USA in the Olympics. This picture is the US Olympic Team. While I had to work many days, I did get to the arena each evening and both Saturdays and Sundays.
The last day the 24th they had the winners from the novice, junior and seniors give a program, and you can see some of them on NBC tonight. The second picture was what they call the finaly. They load up those tables with souvenirs bunches of frizbie rings and some other towels or t-shirts, they ask the Olympians to sign the souvenir and throw it into the stands. Each of those tables came out heaping with these souvenirs, and it took them about 10 minutes to throw them all out to the crowd.
