    Reposting from the US Men's thread in the Trash Can:
    :eek: Can anyone who has received this calendar confirm? Is this calendar only sent to USFS' Friends of Figure Skating supporters?

    I noticed it too when I received my calendar. I believe you have to be a Friends of FS supporter to receive this calendar. Your membership includes 10 issues of Skating mag.

    Are you sure it's the 2012 calendar and not the 1984 calendar?

    Was whoever put together those backgrounds and captions someone who doesn't actually follow the sport? Maybe they looked at a listing of the 2011 Nationals long program results, or a listing of the returning skaters in order of last year's rankings, and incorrectly inferred the medal results from that incomplete information?

    That sounds likely, since Dornbush and Miner were 1st and 2nd in the FS.

    And, as I mentioned in the other thread, they have both Rachael and Mirai winning the silver medal.

    They also didn't include Agnes in the calendar, while they included the pewter medalists in men's and pairs (Hubbells weren't in it since they split).

    Maybe Ryan asked for Ricky and Ross to be moved up one place. And Ryan appears as the platinum medalist elsewhere?? :D Those are some seriously embarrassing mistakes.

    :confused: Why would they include Caydee and John? They're a brand new time that has yet to compete at Nationals.

    BTW, I was informed that Ryan Bradley received an apology from someone at USFS headquarters for the calendar error re. Dornbush's "2011 U.S. Champion" title.
