    Last year at least 2 fans posted numerous Nebelhorn videos - links will be posted in the competition thread in Kiss and Cry and I'm sure any Paul/Islam vids will make their way here. ;)

    Lovely. Both programs looked superb, and those twizzles!!!:D I was especially impressed by the FD, which looked a bit smoother than it did a few weeks back (when it already looked more than competition ready). There were a couple of awkward moments in the FD at Thornhill that I noticed, and here it looked like they re-choreographed all of them. Wishing them the best for Nebelhorn!!!

    Hello all! Nebelhorn is in the books, and it seems P/I had a good competition and result overall. I haven't been able to tack down any videos, but there are pics on absoluteskating.com, as well as the link I posted above. P/I were also invited to skate in the gala, and thanks to Absolute Skating we finally know what their exhibition music is. Apparently it's "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, though I have no idea what version.

    I know. The way she uses them to hilight the inflections in the music is lovely. A credit to her ballet background, I think.:)

    I'm trying to complete the sentence "I adore her ... and keep thinking "ears". :lol: I'm sure you meant arms or something like that.

    Thanks! I am not a fan, but even I have to say - pity that we won't see them at GP. I really like their programs this season - both of them are so tastefully and subtly (I don't know how else to say it) done. And I would especially love to see such an SD among all the jollity/merriment, goofiness (in a good way, of course) and brightness of this season's SDs.

    Yes , a beautiful portrait .. but did you scroll down underneath ? There are many gorgeous skating shots ... Wow ! I think it must be hard to find a bad shot of these two.

    If you're interested in that particular photo shoot, I believe this is the proper link for the whole set.

    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.360163028288.201821.325095693288&type=3

    If I'm not mistaken, these were taken during their first season together back in 2010.

    I wish I could find out where the picture of Alexandra that I posted yesterday came from!

    Hi all! It's been a while since we've had any news, but I believe P/I are cometing this weekend at the COS sectionals. They'll go up against Ralph/Hill and Gilles/Poirier.


    http://www.skatecanada-centralontario.com//Irma/Sectionals 2013/index.htm

    Should be a good test for them. I don't think there's going to be live streaming of this one, but I'll keep an eye on Skatebuzz just to be sure. I won't be able to get out to Barrie to watch, but if anyone does, I'm sure we'd all appreciate a report!

    Revised schedule does not have senior dance. Guess all have chosen to pass on sectionals.

    Oh, sorry! I hadn't noticed that. I guess it made sense, since R/H and G/P have a bye straight through to nationals, and P/I would have passed automatically through sections by virtue of being the only team actually requiring a spot in competition. I guess we'll have to wait for nationals to see the match-up. I believe P/I are required to skate Challenge, though, so we should see them there next month.
