    Yes.

    They're great with their fans, so I think there's a very good chance they will. :)

    Dear Amanda and Mark,

    For the benefit of US Pairs skating, we the USFSA hereby request you skate until you are too old and infirm to stand on your own volition. Besides, the young kiddies need an example of what commitment means.

    We had high hopes for the big lunk and diva with Level 4 mascara, and we are absolutely beside ourselves that he has disappeared into the night. She is crying and her face now looks like Lady Gaga after a 2 hour concert. We fear he has been sucked into the Denney void for good.

    C'mon. It's either you guys or the porny guy bulging in every direction with his little tyke of a partner. A little too ewww for our conservative tastes at this time. We are admittedly intrigued, though, but they're not 'soup' yet. Still, we just can't take our eyes off of him *drool mark*

    As a bonus, please find enclosed your 2012 Title. That should be all. Thank you very much.

    Sincerely,

    The USFSA

    In your letter, ask for an autograph, and enclose an envelope addressed back to you, already stamped. It will definetly increase the chance of a response. They are both so nice,, so I would think.they would do it, but I don't know how much fan mail they get...if it is alot, it is hardwr to.respond to.

    Amanda is on vacation this week so there will be a little bit of a time lapse if you write them right now, but yes, they are very good with their fans and try to get responses out as soon as possible. The offseason is the best time to write them because they aren't usually as busy. Good luck! :)

    olympic-Your letter just made my entire night, LOL :lol: :cheer:

    While on the topic of sending something to skaters- where would I be able to send something to Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir? :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Lol. Just love evora and Ladwig. Have loved them ever since their super emotional skate at nationals in 2010. To be honest I dunno whether they will ever break into the top 5 at worlds but it would be fantastic for them to become us national champions !! All their pairs elements are great. If only they can getmore consistent on the 3 toes ...

    A result equal to Y/C this year is entirely possible IF they can land everything. Their programs are very CoP friendly. Their score at CoR with mistakes in the LP was close to 111 pts. and was higher than Y/C at that point.

    Assuming they would be the #1 US Pair with Y/C and D/B gone, and M/B still forming, they would have the full push of the USFSA behind them, too.

    If you use the same suggestion as given to the OP, the address of the rink they skate at is Arctic Edge Ice Arena 46615 Michigan Avenue Canton, MI 48188

    Hmmm. It's not definite that they are continuing, but it sounds like we will get confirmation in a couple of weeks

    I believe Amanda is still on vacation (or has just returned to Florida, I'm not sure which) so I'm not surprised there's no word from them yet. I know they're taking their time with their decision and I don't blame them. I'm sure they'll make the best decision for themselves and while I selfishly hope they continue skating, I would totally understand if they wanted to retire. If I hear anything regarding this issue and am allowed to share it, I will do so here as soon as possible. :)

    Thanks. I am a recent convert since Vancouver and Worlds '10, and hope that they continue, if anything, to keep US Pairs viable.

    i think if Amanda is on vacations yet maybe is thinking about what decide , is hard decide if end partnership or not , as i read on the interview to Mark he says that both are taking some time off i interpret as that in short term there is not any decision of end partnership but well just patience and wait for news about them in some weeks more i think .

    i hope that they don't end their partnership yet or that delay the decision for next years

    No, but with all the recent US pairs splits, especially with the last two US championship teams splitting, I think people are just wondering what Amanda & Mark are going to do now. We should know something soon. I don't blame them for wanting to take a break after Worlds considering the postponement added nearly a month to their season.

    What they will do? Thee just on vacation. I should think that they'll be right back on ice. As I could never see them spliting. I don't even know if Amanda also skates Freestyle.

    You have to remember that neither one of them are exactly kids. Amanda is in her mid twenties and Mark is pushing 30. At their ages people often think about their future after competitive skating, It's only natural for each of them to take time and decide what they really want to do, and if their bodies can hold up under intense training and competition.
    I hope they continue. I think they're great. But it's their decision.

    Yes, Mark turned 31 earlier this month and Amanda will be 27 in November. They been skating together since 2002 -- that's 9 consecutive US Nationals since 2003!

    Spiralgraph brings up very good points and if/when they decide to stop competing as a team, I would imagine most fans would understand why and respect their decision. They've had a long and admirable career up to this point.

    Did you write them a letter, FSWer?

    I responded to Amanda's Facebook vacation update that we really need them next year ;) (and I apologized for "talking shop" whilst on vaca :p) I do hope they come back but I can understand if they don't. Pairs is the hardest discipline...
