    Thanks for the update, Sylvia.

    For reference, here's the old champs camp thread from way back in June.

    Better than nothing! :)

    Nevermind. I see that this year they invited everyone who got a GP event, even if the skater didn't compete at Nationals.

    Thanks for starting this thread. Something refreshing to read and look forward to. I need a break from the drama going on in the YuNA/Brian
    thread. :watch:

    I know, I know, I could just ignore it but then I would be out of the loop with the latest speculation theories and rumors.

    I'm sorry. But I don't think she does. :(

    Are you referring to Musademba? Yes, she does; she competes at Cup of China.

    I was expecting Czisny to pull out, but this probably means she will continue:encore:

    I wasn't expecting Kristine to get a GP, but I am happy she did. She was recognized for all of the results she made on the JGP even though she was out most of last year.

    Some additional context from the person who took those first photos: http://twitter.com/lynnrutherford
    I don't think we should hold our collective breath for videos of actual competition programs...

    According to Adam's Twitter, he left for Champ's Camp early this morning.

    Hey, all it takes is one wise-a&& with a high end cell-phone and internet access. :D

    Too bad that at least some of the TBD assignments haven't been determined so that if there are any skaters not already on the GP circuit they could be part of the camp. I would think the less experienced skaters could benefit from it.

    I can't remember any previous Champs' Camp in which skaters' programmes were actually filmed; at least, none that we got to see anyway. Will this year be different?

    I think this year skaters will be able to perform their program to get some feedback, but I don't know if it will be filmed or something, maybe just if the skater/coach permit ;)

    Hard to determine who smiles more - Amanda or John Coughlin. :lol: Probably why I like them both so much, they always look like they love what they're doing and having the best time.

    I'm glad that she is recovering; and looking forward to seeing her back on the ice.

    I wonder if Mirai will be ready for Japan Open, if a month prior the event she will be just stroking and obviosly lost training time.

    I hope Mirai recovers in time for the Grand Prix. Even if she does, lost training time will cause her performances to suffer. :(

    ^^ I'm not sure she died it - it looked like bad lighting because Adam's hair looked kinda different too

    I'm sure Flatt, Zawadzki and Gilles are all there (ditto for Czisny, Zhang and Musademba) -- just no photo evidence yet. ;)

    Stephen Carriere joins Mirai Nagasu on the "injured" list at Champs Camp according to these tweets yesterday: http://twitter.com/lynnrutherford

    Aww, I understand Mirai's pain. That's kind of a scary drive (not to mention, it's hard to make such a long/difficult drive with a. limited driving experience and b. the difficulty of the task ahead once she gets there!).
