@PaulDPoirier:

There is nothing better than the @SkateCanada team camp: food, friends, and great skating. Yes, food comes before friends #sorrynotsorry

ETA this hearsay info was posted today in the Grand Prix Assignments thread (Steele/Schultz are still listed on the National Team page as of today):

Such a waste to not send one of many options for ladies but since Schultz broke up with Steele in July I don't believe there is any other pair team to send.
Someone else posted hearsay info back on August 1 about Steele being "in a cast" as the reason why they had to withdraw from several U.S. club competitions earlier this summer.

According to PJ, Dube & Wolfe aren't at camp because they aren't at the right level of readiness yet. Does that mean their programs aren't done or could it be something else?

And V/M's SD is a waltz composed by Anthony Hopkins (as in the actor).

Amelie Lacoste's jumps looked greatly improved - higher n stronger - nice 3Lz/3toe (I think) combo! #cbcskates

which is music to my ears.

From my sources, Lacoste wasn't doing 3Lz/3T, she was doing 3Lz/2L. Osmond was doing 3Lz/3T. I would be very surprised if Lacoste was doing 2 triple toe jumps in combo.

I don't recall Lacoste doing a solo triple toe in the last several seasons either.

I wonder if Desanctis and Najarro are there.

hohoho

Only Lacoste and Osmond there. Phaeuf (if skating), Najarro (if skating), and Desanctis are supposed to arrive for festivities on Friday night and Saturday

A 3lutz/3l is plan in the short program and it is probably what PJ saw. And yes she is capable of doing it....

Paul Poirier just tweeted (https://twitter.com/PaulDPoirier/status/244248404740423680/photo/1),


Today the entire national team was introduced to @SkateCanada's new partner, @THOMASSABO! We're all so excited!

Thomas Sabo Skate Canada?

I don't know where they live in the market spectrum: are they direct competition for Birks (for which Rochette has a collection)? Is there overlap between them and Birks? Or do they target different price points entirely?

I would say different market. Have a look at the website of each to see the difference. I prefer the style of Thomas Sabo.
