I know. I was at Bay State Games to compete in an adult event the next day and went to the Saturday gala where winners in all categories performed. What struck me -and not in a good way- was how in ISI, the skating level visibly declined as age categories went up. So the platinum 12-14 winner was quite good , but 16-18 was a lot worse. Yes, I realize this might have had something to do with who signed up to compete, but let's just say it didn't make me want to try ISI.
