    "All-Figures Competition 2010 - any interest?

    We're thinking about putting together the "All-Figures Competition" this summer in Portland OR - we had a great time last year but maybe didn't have as many skaters as we would have liked - anyone interested? Sometime mid-July would most likely be the time...

    We would also be open to some other club/rink hosting this competition and would be happy to send the announcement so that the same format could be followed. It might be fun to put it in different regions each year so that more people can participate.

    We totally understand that the Pacific NW is not the easiest place to get to, but it is BEAUTIFUL here in the summer!!!

    The problem is during the summer all the kids skating there is no way to get quiet ice time to practice.

    Would it be OK to post a link to this at Golden Skate?

    So true
    Not sure how to remedy this... you have a good point. (puts on thinking cap)

    Please - yes and anywhere else where you think it is relevant.

    I am trying to think of things and then get distracted by my "real" work - for some reason I feel totally passionate about this although I may not be able to compete this year (although I probably will...)

    Thank you!

    You might try putting it up on icenetwork's IN crowd forum. I'm not enrolled there.

    We are definitely doing it!

    I wanted to report that we WILL be hosting a figures competition in Portland, OR
    sometime this summer - the dates are still to be decided.

    Thank you to everyone who responded on this list or to me personally - this
    definitely helped me make the case before the Oregon Skating Council (the entity
    that will be hosting this competition) so that we can go forward from here!

    We are also floating the possibility of adding a figures test session to the schedule to be held during the competition (on the suggestion of a person that contacted me privately) so if we know which tests people would like to take maybe we can put together a little session - we need to see if we have enough time/judges at certain levels) in order to do this but it is definitely something that will be considered.

    Thank you everyone!!

    5 in the morning, or when I was doing them just two years ago, I would also do them at 8:30 am when the kids left for school (but I have flexible hours).

    Just ask your rink. Most are accommodating, actually.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
