Then would Rockne's bye to 2011 Nationals still apply with a new partner?
No. He would have to qualify with a new partner through one of the 3 U.S. Sectionals in November in order to compete at 2011 Nationals. And he would have to find a new partner and they would have to register by the U.S. Nationals qualifying application deadline of Sept. 1st.

It's probably better to continue the future McL/B competition options discussion in their break-up thread (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=74035) or in the 2010-11 US Pairs thread (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=73479) since neither of them :( are going to be on the 2010-11 GP now. ;)

ETA: I've copied over PolymerBob's question and Sylvia's answer into the 2010-11 US Pairs thread.

My hearsay info is that the sibling team of Sunyoto-Yang/Sulindro-Yang TPE have split (he has retired, she may be looking for a new partner).

How does one obtain tickets to watch Rostelecom Cup of Russia (November 2010)? I tried visiting the Figure Skating Federation of Russia website (http://fsrussia.ru/) and even with Google Translate version I cannot find any information about tickets and such. The ISU also does not have such information that I seek, so I was wondering if anyone had some insight on how to go about this? I appreciate any help and I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask..

Just a suggestion. A friend who attended last year was able to obtain tickets through one of the travel agencies who takes care of your Russian visa. I would look for one of those first, inquire about the cost of obtaining a visa (which can be very expensive, so I would shop around) and explain that you are looking for help in terms of tickets as well.

Hi lovelikelatte,

the Rostelcom Cup of Russia tickets are sold rather late and via telephone, last year it was early September for the mid October event. You could try to find someone from Moscow on a skating forum to buy tickets for you, this worked for me last year (even though I ended up not going due to work commitments).

And a question: Any news about Yannick Ponseros's future?

The 2010-11 Grand Prix Announcement has FINALLY been released:

http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1901

2.1 b) (under Seeded Skaters) is new:

“Come-Back” Skaters/Couples: Skaters/Couples who were previously seeded (placed 1 to 6 at any
previous ISU World Figure Skating Championships) and subsequently do not participate in one or more
competitive seasons are allowed to re-enter the Grand Prix if they commit to participating in 2 Grand
Prix events. A come-back under this clause is allowed only once for any skater. Subsequent to the
come-back season, the skater will be considered only by his /her placement on the official lists (seeded
or World Standing points, etc.). If the skater is no longer on the list, he/she will not be considered for a
Grand Prix event.
A similar provision was in 2.2 e) last season to allow previously seeded skaters "who due to injury or no fault of their own" to receive up to 2 assignments.
The new "come-back" provision seems to not care why the skaters sat out a season or two (or three, etc.).

So Evan can get assignments. And Joannie. Also Johnny. Also Kimmie. For that matter Rena & John (who once finished 4th at worlds). And a cast of 1000's.

Don't forget Michelle.

This seems like a loophole the size of Texas. I wonder what they were thinking?

Well if it encourages people to return to eligible skating, it's a good thing I guess.

It's a one-time loophole the size of Texas. After what happened last season, they could call this the Sasha clause. They gave Sasha 2 GP events, and she didn't show up. So this clause says she gets no more chances.

The 2010 Men's GP assignments table has been updated to reflect the ISU Council's ineligibility decision regarding Plushenko. Plushenko's name has been removed from the assignments for the Rostelecom Cup GP event.
