    Quick question - aren't Jones/Beharry skating sr at Indy? She did SGP w old partner last season. Purdy/marinaro are still JGP eligible. What about Andrews/anderson? Is he too old?

    Jones/Beharry are skating Junior at Indy - they're JGP age-eligible this season. Britney Simpson skated on the Senior Grand Prix with her former partner and returned to the JGP last season with her new partner - it's allowed as long as the team is ISU age-eligible.

    Yes, Cassie Andrews is 18 but Nick Anderson turned 21 in February and has aged out of ISU Junior.

    Oops, I forgot to * Purdy/Marinaro in my list above - I knew they're planning to return to the JGP this season.

    Does anyone know why Yankowskas / Reagan have decided not to attend?

    I thought when they teamed, it was stated that they were looking to debut the SP and LP together at Indy Challenge

    :(

    When I spoke to Caitlin's mom at Skate For Hope (mid-June), Indy Challenge wasn't part of the plan for Yankowskas/Reagan. They are debuting (perhaps one program) at Skate Detroit, I have heard.

    Yes. Cassie competed the past two seasons with Tim LeDuc (3rd Junior 2011 2011 & World Jrs competitors, and 11th in Seniors at 2012 Nationals). Cassie and Nick attempted the 2010 season in Juniors but his injury took him out most of the season. Since he has "aged-out" of the junior GP and she has already competed in Seniors, there was no need to hang out in junior any longer.

    Also, there is at least one more senior pair that is likely to enter the competition (more teams can through Sunday, July 15 w/ late fee). Can't drop names until they do -- don't pester me about it, just mentioning it since the number of senior teams may still grow. There are often quite a few late entries, which balance out those who split up or get injured before the competition.

    BTW, is anyone attending besides perhaps HeatherC and Aaron?

    I'll be there. Volunteering for probably 40+ hours of competition/practice (All but Friday before 12:30ish)... because I have to be. If you're coming into town to spectate (or even support your own skaters/etc.), feel free to message me with any questions.

    WEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! :cheer: Looking forward to seeing the crew there again this year! I all ready got that Friday off work and am currently working on my hotel reservation (geesh prices are high right now :eek: ). It looks like there will be a pretty solid roster again this time so I'm excited to see what the competition brings this year. I should be able to do some videos again as long as my camera and batteries hold out, LOL :biggrinbo

    And after it's all over each day, I get to go back to my hotel and watch the OLYMPICS on TV! :cheer2:

    If anyone is planning to attend Indy Challenge, the Indiana State Fair opens on August 3. I love going to the fair. It's a fun place and time.http://www.in.gov/statefair/fair/index.html

    See you in the top row, HeatherC and jkl!!! I'm trying to leave work early enough on Friday to at least see Sr shorts.

    I don't believe so. It appears that Meno/Sand's teams are electing to compete at the L.A. Open this weekend instead of Indy, and I heard that some of Dalilah Sappenfield's teams will be at Skate Detroit, while Duarte/Grafton are scheduled to compete at Liberty next week.

    Can someone who has EntryEeze access please publish the list of groups so that we can see all of the competitor names, especially for junior and senior events?

    Anyone can see the list (just have to know where to look ;) ). Go to entryeeze and click on a coaches name. Indy has the schedule loaded, so you can simply click on the events that come up for that coach and you'll get the full list of competitors.

    For example, I used the link you provided and selected "Coaches". From the drop down, I clicked on Jeremy Allen, then the "Pairs Short Program - Senior" and this is what popped up:

    Sylvia listed most of the entries (above, first entry in this thread) for Junior and Senior events.

    I believe the only two teams she is missing are:

    DeeDee Leng / Tim LeDuc, who entered the Senior SP (only)

    Dylan Conway/Dustin Clayton-Sheriff (CAN) - Junior SP & FS

    There are also 8 Novice teams, 3 Intermediate, 7 Juvenile, 1 PreJuvenile, and 2 Open Adult.

    Thanks, this was very helpful. I notice that the coaches list has names of everyone who has been there in recent years, not just the ones coming this year. For example, Sappenfield, Oppegard, Meno and Sand are listed but they have no one coming this year.

    Yep, that's normal for EntryEeze. It'll store coaches from recent years, as well as local coaches -- both of which the LOC provides the first year, and then EntryEeze stores for future years.

I'll try to check this forum from my phone incase anyone visiting the competition in person has questions /etc.

    I see that Andrews and Anderson have withdrawn from the Senior event. Are they injured or have they split?

    Injured. Not a long-term major injury, but she's been off the ice for a week or two now.

    For anyone attending in person, walk to the business office tower connected to the rink, in order to enter the rink.

    The plaza outside of the rink is under construction and not passable, so your best option to enter the rink is through the business office tower (which will be unlocked this weekend as well).
