    Maybe that's why I was confused at first!

    It looks like Davis/White didn't skate in Skate for the Heart. Anyone know why? I wonder if D/W said no to them after realizing it was too close to NHK but they didn't change the list of skaters.

    I looked on Disson's website early last week and they were no longer on the list. They had just done a show the weekend before and NHK is coming up. I agree that they probably wanted the time for training.
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    Thanks. I didn't realize their names were taken off the list. It annoys me when shows don't update whether or not a skater is actually coming.

    It may be that having to change their short dance after Champs Camp threw their training schedule off, and what originally looked like reasonable commitments turned out not to be.

    Additionally, they just skated at the dress rehearsal. If Judy Blumberg gave them any pointers they had to change, they may have had to work on that.

    But I would have thought there would be contractual obligations? I wouldn't think they could back out just for training issues?

    Hmm, I would think eligible skaters would always have that option. Are you sure there would be contracts involved?

    No, I'm not at all sure, which is what the ? was doing.

    If I were Disson, there would be a contract of some sort, but only the parties know whether there was or not, or what clauses there were, if there was one.

    I'm hoping they don't have an injury :no no no:

    They have not had Skate for the Heart on their schedule for weeks. With the gymnastics thing and NHK so close together, I don't think it ever made any sense for them to make the trip to Youngstown in between. I wonder if their names were left over from last year.

    So I was debating whether or not I should post my pictures out here but I've decided that, since the people at Arctic Edge knew that several people were taking pictures, TAT was there, and NHK is less than two weeks away, it will be okay. Although if anyone from Arctic Edge wants them down, I will of course take them down.

    So here are my pictures from the Exhibition.

    Some of my favorites of Meryl and Charlie:
    Free Dance
    Rotational Lift (And you thought I was kidding)
    Another lift
    The end
    Twizzles
    Golden Waltz, I believe
    Lift
    Final lift

    Love all of your pics of Meryl/Charlie TG!

    I flipped through the rest and was at this lift of C/Z. http://picasaweb.google.com/OrangeGi...71337129771746

    and I was impressed with Bereswill/Young's variety of lifts in their LP!

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    Wow. Great pics. Thanks so much for taking the time to get them all up.

    In between the picture taking, did you get much time to watch the programs? I was wondering if you could see any results yet from their effort to put more attention on line and toe point.

    I wouldn't have taken pictures if I wasn't able to watch as well. But I was really more focused on the program content than line and toe point. Especially since they aren't the first things I notice. Sorry I can't tell you more.

    Well, he's not holding her by a belt or anything.

    There's a lot of trust involved there...

    It's actually called America's Thanksgiving Parade. I have never heard it called anything else and have lived in the Detroit area since birth. I don't think there is (or ever has been) any tie to Macy's at all. This parade has been around for a really long time; maybe one of the oldest in the country. I heard the news of Charlie and Meryl's appearance today on the local news - called them celebrities. Nice to hear them referred to like that!

    I don't think it is. ISU Rule 604, which defines dance "Steps, Turns, and Movements" says this:

    "16 Dance Lift
    ***
    The following movements and/or poses during the lift are not allowed and will be considered as an “illegal”:
    ***
    - lifting partner swinging the lifted partner around by holding the skate(s)/boot(s) or leg(s) only with fully extended arm(s) or by holding the hand(s) with full arm extension by both partners."

    This language is found again in both Rule 609 Short Dance and 610 Free Dance under Illegal Elements/Movements.

    Charlie's elbow is slightly bent, so maybe they think that makes it OK (his arm is not "fully extended") but I am surprised the USFS tech specialist who was in Canton for this exhibition didn't caution them about it. I guess we will find out in a few days at NHK.

    My vote would be to dump this move rather than flirt on the edge of the rules. It isn't very dancy nor very attractive anyway.

    I, for one, would like to actually see the rotational lift first before deeming it not very dancey nor very attractive. It may only be a transitional move through the lift.

    Man, first Sam/Bates and now V/M...

    Stay healthy, Meryl and Charlie!!
