The typical question that is often asked this time of year is how did you spend your summer vacation? As an adult who wanted to have my dream come true, I accomplished that the weekend of August 3-6 in South Brunswick, New Jersey at the brand new Pro Skate USA Ice Arena. I was enrolled for camp, the SFX All-Star Figure Skating Fantasy Camp!

Memorable moments from SFX Figure Skating Fantasy Camp:
* Claiming our own Adult Dressing Room courtesy of Dotty!
* Listening to Carol Heiss Jenkins off ice who spent a lot of time with the adults.
* Having lunch with Charlie, Laurent, Tonia, who sat with us at our table!
* Reminiscing with Randy Gardner as his folks and mine knew each other way back when!
* Listening to Tai Babilionia describe her new skating line for adults!
* Talking with Charlie Tickner about jumps and competitions and posing for pictures!
* How Tonia Kwiatowski smiled when I mentioned that my husband also attended Baldwin Wallace College like her!
* Hearing that Liz Punsalon and Jerod Swallow still have our black and white checkered flags we waved for them after their performance at Munich Worlds, in 1991!
* The thrill and excitement of skating with Alexei, Jerod, and Ingo!
* Looking forward to seeing Mandy Woetzel and Ingo Steur in Gelsenkirchen, Germany for Sparkassen Cup!
* Getting encouragement from Liz Manley saying YES you can spin and not get dizzy!
* Riding to the Arena with Laurent Tobel and listening to him in the van!
* To one of our great drivers Ken Benson, I liked being in the front seat!
* Learning our group number and counting out loud our steps!
* Thank you Randy for choreographing our Adult Group Number!
* Thanks Pilar who led group #3 in the Adult Group Number!
