    No. He would have to qualify with a new partner through one of the 3 U.S. Sectionals in November in order to compete at 2011 Nationals. And he would have to find a new partner and they would have to register by the U.S. Nationals qualifying application deadline of Sept. 1st.

    It's probably better to continue the future McL/B competition options discussion in their break-up thread or in the 2010-11 US Pairs thread since neither of them :( are going to be on the 2010-11 GP now. ;)

    ETA: I've copied over PolymerBob's question and Sylvia's answer into the 2010-11 US Pairs thread.

    My hearsay info is that the sibling team of Sunyoto-Yang/Sulindro-Yang TPE have split (he has retired, she may be looking for a new partner).

    How does one obtain tickets to watch Rostelecom Cup of Russia (November 2010)? I tried visiting the Figure Skating Federation of Russia website (http://fsrussia.ru/) and even with Google Translate version I cannot find any information about tickets and such. The ISU also does not have such information that I seek, so I was wondering if anyone had some insight on how to go about this? I appreciate any help and I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask..

    Just a suggestion. A friend who attended last year was able to obtain tickets through one of the travel agencies who takes care of your Russian visa. I would look for one of those first, inquire about the cost of obtaining a visa (which can be very expensive, so I would shop around) and explain that you are looking for help in terms of tickets as well.

    Hi lovelikelatte,

    the Rostelcom Cup of Russia tickets are sold rather late and via telephone, last year it was early September for the mid October event. You could try to find someone from Moscow on a skating forum to buy tickets for you, this worked for me last year (even though I ended up not going due to work commitments).

    And a question: Any news about Yannick Ponseros's future?

    The 2010-11 Grand Prix Announcement has FINALLY been released:

    http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1901

    2.1 b) (under Seeded Skaters) is new:
    A similar provision was in 2.2 e) last season to allow previously seeded skaters "who due to injury or no fault of their own" to receive up to 2 assignments.
    The new "come-back" provision seems to not care why the skaters sat out a season or two (or three, etc.).

    So Evan can get assignments. And Joannie. Also Johnny. Also Kimmie. For that matter Rena & John (who once finished 4th at worlds). And a cast of 1000's.

    Don't forget Michelle.

    This seems like a loophole the size of Texas. I wonder what they were thinking?

    Well if it encourages people to return to eligible skating, it's a good thing I guess.

    It's a one-time loophole the size of Texas. After what happened last season, they could call this the Sasha clause. They gave Sasha 2 GP events, and she didn't show up. So this clause says she gets no more chances.

    For reference, here are the invite rules for this season (it is bizarre to get this after we've already gotten the assignments)

    So we're keeping the "pairs and dance teams with new partners can be alternates" rule from last season and gaining this whole "you can come back once" thing. Interesting.

    What's the event in Russia going to be called? The GP announcement has "Rostelecom Cup". Meanwhile, the ISU is still calling it "Cup of Russia" on the GP page and the event page.

    The Ros in "Rostelecom" is Russia. "Rostelecom" is the Russian Telecommunications Company. I don't think there would be a Rostelecom Cup in another country unless they operate in other countries.

    I assume it will be Rostelecom Cup like last season, since that company is a sponsor of the Russian Fed. I think it's just an inconsistency caused by miscommunication between whoever updates the website and the rest of the staff or someone just copying previous year items.

    The Zaretsky's have been struck from their two Ice Dance GP assignments:

    http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1914

    No other changes to the assignments table. This frees up two GP slots, one at NHK Trophy and one at Skate America.

    (Skate America and NHK Trophy already have 3 USA slots, so the re-assignment will be from a non-USA team ;)).

    From the new Golden Skate article, it sounds like Amanda Dobbs is still hopeful to get either the ladies or pairs TBA spot for Skate America:

    (we have to get it after the assignments... that's how you write the rule.... First assignments and then "adjust rule to fit what we did" )

    Just kidding!

    Bucket totally deserve it.

    I wish they trained with Muriel. As voidy and original as their coach's work is, she seems to be unable to take them to the next level technically.

    I agree with what you say, but still think they are better with Karine Arribert, Ziggy. They are arguably the voidiest couple out there at the moment and they will never be technically the strongest, even if they go to Zazoui. They lack the basics for that. They obviously take pride in the originality and subtlety of their programs and I hope they will keep that for our pleasure. Zazoui gives her students terrific programs too, but she will always have other top couples to train, so we can watch them too. Blanc/Bouquet are unique and so fresh!
