    No Meagan Duhamel/Eric Radford? I would have thought this would have been an amazing time for them to kind of get assessed and show what they can do, especially since they were given a grand prix.

    They could possibly still be going....especially if the press release just listed names from the National Team pages on the SC website.

    The attendance criteria must be GP entry...because Jeremy Ten is going and he is not on the Nat team ( bur does have Skate Canada)...so that means Eric and Meagan may well be there.

    I am glad that Skate Canada is keeping these camps but it seems rather strange that it is not in Vancouver. (I know the Olympics are over, but still...)

    They had these camps long before they held them in Vancouver. They just purposely chose the Vancouver location to give athletes extra time to help them feel comfortable in the building.

    The first (??), at least that I can remember, was held in Kitchener in 02 or 03.

    Have the camps traditionally been held in Ontario (with the exception of the years leading up to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics) or do they move them around the country?

    That's because Vancouver has bad fans who take notes and videos at open-to-the-public sessions, and then have the nerve to talk about what they saw :p Bad fans! Bad fans!

    well if that's so that issue existed with 'Ms Mcleod's' parents at YRSA when she was there at Sectionals as well. They boo judges etc. So not cool.:smokin:: but not surprising either.

    IIRC the camps have been in Kitchener, Montreal ( twice, I think) , Torino, 4 times in Vancouver and now in Toronto.

    Today was open to the public, but it was just practices and press scrums. ..AFAIK tomorrow ( when they actually skate their programs )is closed to the public:( ( Someone tell me I'm wrong) But some reports could still make it out. And I expect (hope) that will be when we get the final word on music choices

    Yeah. Entertaining, but not exactly a "scoop".

    I'm not sure it was really necessary to be there to have written this. :lol:

    True, it's not exactly a scoop, but not worth a :rolleyes: either.

    :D Oh, chill... Did you think I was being mean to Paul?

    No,I was laughing at us, or at me , if you prefer..We're ( I'm ) so dying to hear reports of people's programs , music etc., that even Paul's innocent little blog is grasped at as news..

    I didn't think you were being mean to Paul at all, I just thought it sounded like you were telling the poster it was a stupid link to share when we are all looking for :sekret: reports. I may have been mistaken - if so, I apologize.

    And I don't really want to chill, thanks.

    :wideeyes: Again, I was teasing..not any poster..I've posted links, myself , regarding this camp that have turned out to say nothing, basically, about what we're interested in. You know, like..the skating ..the music.

    It seemed to me that after US Champs Camp bits of real info started dribbling out ; and here we are almost a week after HPC's over..and all that's coming out is how good was the food..:D I was rolling my eyes at the general situation , and having a chuckle at how starved for news we are regarding the Canadian skaters at this late date in the off-season.

    Since I'm not in the habit of making personal attacks , it never occurred to me that anyone would take it that way...It's possible to be rude unintentionally (sorry) and also possible to be a bit too sensitive...

    that's where the period should be inserted in your statement. :smokin:

    So I will pretend you did and I accept your apology ;):hat1:

    You know withrespect, how about living up to your user name. She/He said she was sorry for being rude unintentionally. Leave it at that.

    I want some of that Cheesecake Paul had. Sounded delish!! :)
