Ummm most of the programs have been out there already with summer competitions...it is a performance based sport if you are skating and no one is clapping that is so weird plus they could do so much good by having schools, and different non-profit organizations coming to clap and enjoy the moment ...just seems like a lost opportunity...They could still getting a critique afterward...just seems so much better than dead silence....and smarter too.It doesn't make much sense...but who knows.

I would think it would add more pressure to the skaters as well...

:confused: Not to be contrary, but some of the skaters have done some comps, many have not (our current champs among them). And since the skaters are used to rehearsing without audiences, I don't think they would really be bothered by not having an one for their monitoring sessions.

I guess Omaha must be going with some Wild West logo with all the skaters dressed up in cowboy outfits. (Or maybe it's just somebody at NBC's idea of Omaha?) :P

American Gothic style (http://instagram.com/p/OmipEPG8JK/) :lol:IIRC someone remarked earlier that they saw more than a passing resemblance between Ashley and McKayla Maroney -- I think I see it in that picture. I'll be Ashley could do a great "not impressed" face, too. :lol:

Thanks for all the Champs Camp photos!

And Johnny's conforming as usual, lol.

OK, I was going to ask. The pic is blurry, but I assume that the dude w/ sunglasses is Johnny.

Is Evan going to grace them with his presence?

Cool. Is there going to be any detail about how they look, jumps attempted, executed, etc.?

Yes, I guess. And there are still (overpriced) Omaha steaks. :lol: But when I think of Omaha now, I think more one of the biggest financial/banking markets outside of Wall Street.

The skaters would not look as cute if they were dressed like bankers.
