I don't see how the world standings points Gracie might earn here will have a significant impact for her. She's got no prayer of getting into the final group for either of her GP short program start lists. I suppose it might matter at the end of the year, but I'm not sure.

I think they are sending Gracie to give her another chance to get comfortable with her programs before Skate Canada.

Agnes has a chance to pass Imai, who is only 2 points ahead of her. Depending on who replaces Alissa (if anyone does) at NHK, that could be a factor.

Taking a closer look at the GP entries, I'm very confused as to how Gao has 2 and Nagasu 1, also how Silete has 2 and Meite only 1. Must have missed Gao getting TEB during the Olympics!

Makes sense to me.

ETA: Here's how the Skate Canada SP start order would look like based on the current ISU World Standings:
?? TBA CAN
82 Kaetlyn Osmond CAN - 338 points
55 Gracie Gold USA - 700
26 Caroline Zhang USA - 1315
21 Amélie Lacoste CAN - 1536 (has a chance to move into 2nd group IF she places top 4 in Salt Lake and Liza T. doesn't compete in a Sr B before SC)
---
14 Elizaveta Tuktamysheva RUS - 1694
11 Ksenia Makarova RUS
10 Elene Gedevanishvili GEO
6 Kanako Murakami JPN
2 Akiko Suzuki JPN

Gao's 2nd assignment was made official on August 10 - see the discussion in the Grand Prix Assignments thread, starting here: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3655699#post3655699

Silete was guaranteed two by coming in top 12 in Nice.

I was really hoping to see a Canadian lady not on the senior grand prix get a chance here (Desanctis, Charbonneau, or Najarro).

I'm a little surprised that Desanctis isn't going, despite the mediocre skate at Thornhill in the FP. I'm betting Najarro's knee isn't 100% yet after her surgery in the spring:(

I'm disappointed to see Paul/Islam and not Ralph/Hill entered. :(

And yes, given Canada has 2 spots per discipline, it's very disappointing that Skate Canada did not use the second Ladies spot.

Ralph/Hill are going to Oberstdorf, along with Paul/Islam. I think that sets up our dance teams well to earn points.

Oh, that's fantastic. I'm glad that all the bronze contenders are getting opportunities after all, be it through the GP or Senior Bs (or, in R/H's case, one of each). Also smart, given the new TES minimums.

Thank heavens. The first tentative schedule I saw had the Saturday events ending at around 7:00 PM - just the time when the football madness would be in full swing. This is much better.

Tiffany Vise tweeted today:
"So excited to be heading to Utah in a couple weeks to compete at the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic"

Glad USFS has added Vise/Baldwin as the 3rd pair team.

After the roster is finalized on the ISU website, we will have open a prediction contest for the big 3 "Senior B" fall competitions (US Classic, Nebelhorn, and Finlandia).

Look for more details in the Kiss-N-Cry section as we get closer to the event.

I still haven't seen anything about who the challenge skate competitors are. So far the plans are to have this event in Salt Lake every year. As a nickname - I suggest we just call it The Classic
