Simsbury Report from Danielle Barnet!


Hi Tara Fans!

First we'd like to take a moment to welcome the newest member of the TaraFans.com Team, longtime Tara fan and loyal TaraFans.com supporter, Danielle Barnet! We are all excited to welcome Danielle to the team and we look forward to enjoying the benefits of Danielle's many talents, her enthusiasm, and the service she will provide to all of Tara's fans.

Danielle's contributions to the club can be felt immediately, as she just got home from Stars on Ice rehearsals in Simsbury, CT, where she met Tara, and is anxious to share the news of her trip with all of you!

Take it away Danielle! Welcome to the team!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be on the Tara Fans team, and I had such a great time in Simsbury today! After an unsuccessful stop yesterday, I visited the rink once again today to hope to get to see Tara. Boy was I in luck!

I walked in and who was on the ice, but Tara! She was wearing all black and her hair was down, held back by her American Flag bandana. It was crimpy/curly. She skated around for about a half an hour, but unfortunately I couldn't hear the music to tell what it was. It seemed sort of fast, maybe rock-ish. I am not sure, there was a radio playing outside of the rink as well, so it was hard to hear her song. But she skated around, following Sandra and a few other coaches for a while, as they worked on ideas.

While she was skating, Scott Hamilton and David Pelletier walked out of the rink, and Scott said hi to everyone watching. He posed for a picture with me and was very nice!

Getting back to Tara. After a while she got off the ice, but went into a locker room or back room. I was so afraid she wouldn't come out or something, but then she did. She walked towards us, but disappeared again into another room. I was talking to a lady who told me that there was an area back there for the skaters to eat or lounge around I suppose, so she said Tara may stay back there for a while, and then head back on the ice. I decided to wait, and one moment later I looked up and Tara was walking towards me! I held my flowers out that I brought for her, and she said, "Aww! That is so sweet." I told her that everyone at TaraFans said hi, and she says hi to all of you! She appreciates everyone's support for her and she told me how the rose I gave her was so special because she "really needed one today". I asked why, if her hip was alright, and she said it was just a little stressful starting new programs at the beginning of the season.

Just a note, she had a Rice Krispies treat in her hand - I suppose for her snack!

Tara was amazing and sweet and warm and caring and wonderful, as usual. She looked so pretty, even after a long skate practice. Not that we are really surprised, she is always stunning!

I was talking to some other ladies and they told me how Tara's mom had been there before and that she looked great, too!

Just a note from yesterday, much of the show does seem to deal with pairs as we thought yesterday. All of the cast were really, really nice and I am really excited for another great season!

I hope to visit Simsbury again before everyone leaves, and if I do I will report back to everyone!
