FIGURE SKATING EVENT NOTES
Published February 16, 1999
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).
