FIGURE SKATING EVENT NOTES

          In Salt Lake City, Dick Rosetta wrote that reviews for
     the U.S. Figure Skating Championships at the Delta Center
     "were generally favorable."   Total attendance figures were
     close to 35,000, "which is minor" compared to the 115,000
     who watched in Philadelphia last year.  But UT Figure
     Skating Assoc. spokesperson Jack Searle said "we budgeted
     for about $1.5[M] in sales of tickets and merchandise.  We
     don't have a final count, but we surpassed $1.1 million
     during the week" (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 2/15).  Also in Salt
     Lake, Brandon Griggs reported on the "poor sightlines" for
     skating at the Delta Center, and wrote that SLOC execs "are
     considering" moving skating events to the E Center in West
     Valley City, UT, in 2002 (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 2/13).
