Perhaps i didn't see a post, or perhaps it hasn't been announced yet...but does anyone know where next year's AN will be held?

No word yet on 2012--it won't be decided until summer or fall.

For 2011, go to:

We're lucky they have announced where it is in 2011.  They like to make us wait a long time for the announcement.  I don't think they're even accepting bids for 2012 yet.

Now that 2011 Adult Nationals is over, it is time to begin speculation for the 2012 event.

I have heard that clubs in the following cities may be preparing a bid for the event:

Colorado Springs
Chicago
Detroit
Pittsburgh

As always, it is just speculation and rumors.  We can expect a location to be announced in July or August.

I think Pittsburgh was going for 2013, not 2012.

I'm in Chicago and haven't heard anything about a Chicago bid, but I've been out of the loop with the clubs lately.

@techskater - REALLY!!!   ::>)  (Loves a juicy morsel of gossip...)

I have also heard the Pittsburgh and Chicago rumor too.  But I can tell you that I did talk to someone who is from Pittsburgh and his response to that is "news to me..."

Why isn't Lake Placid bidding?  Are they assuming that they're get it anyway since it IS every four years now...  :laugh:  Last I've heard was a couple of years ago and that they're strapped for money b/c the State of New York is limiting or even eliminating funding for the Olympics Center, but to my knowledge, the center is STILL open and operational.  That said, given the expense, I am likely NOT able to make Lake Placid if it's in 2012 anyway.  Chicago and Detroit is likely a GO though.  Don't know about Colorado Springs or Pittsburgh though.  (I didn't do research on those two cities for airfares and hotel cost.)

Meh, trying not to think too much ahead.  The last time I thought ahead for AN, I lost not one but TWO jobs within that same skating season and was UNEMPLOYED during the time I was competing (already paid for it, so no backing out!!!)  Just don't want to get my hopes up too high.  Anything can happen...  :-X  :-\
Cheers,
~jazzpants~


Came back to compete in April 2011 in SLC! :D  Made it in April 2012? Will I make it in 2013???  Stay tuned...

I'm not thinking about it, cause if I get my hopes up I'll probably be qualified to go, but unable to be cause I'll finally be in a new job...with no vacation time and working double shifts (sigh). At least I'll finally be getting a paycheck (but not doing any skating).

From what I've heard from the Adult Skating Commitee on Facebook:
"Bid packages will be available soon. Bid deadline is July and location will be announced in September."

I think the Adult Committee changed the time frames for the bids and announcements.  I hope it means earlier notification for the skaters.

Bid packages are now available on USFS for next year... I read them and see that they are hoping to announce dates and locations by July. Keeping fingers crossed!
FWIW... I'd like to see a East Coast club besides LP get AN!!

Great - I looked yesterday and they were still showing 2011 for the Adult events.  Glad it's being done earlier now.

AUGH!!!  Looked thru airfare for all four cities.  All but Detroit have reasonable airfares.  Detroit is WAAAY over what I want to spend airfare wise.  (And yes, same with LP too!!!  Too expensive!!!)  :o

So they should be looking at finalist bid cities in the next three weeks. Wondering who's bid.

There were three bids.  The one I rumored to Jazz did bid.

I found that facebook post:

   Bids will open soon, close in July, and the location will be announced in September, 2011.
May 4 at 9:05pm

The official bid document does say the location and dates were to be announced on July 1st, as MadMac linked.
I know the AN bid schedule was changed earlier this year to move up the dates.  Maybe it's a typo?

I think it was late August or early September last year when we found out, so I would be surprised if it was much earlier than that this year.  They will probably announce regionals for the following year before this upcoming regionals, so it feels like we are a little left out with only 8 months to mull over it instead of a year or more.

I was under the impression that the delay last year was due to lack of bids. According to techskater, this year there were three of them and I saw where the announcement date on the bid package did read July 1. Wonder what's going on here.

I hope it's sooner rather than later.  I'm an instant gratification type of girl - I don't do waiting very well, lol.
