    Go Brisbane!!! Yeah!
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Any guesses for what the rationale is for reducing dance and pairs to 6, while keeping 8 for singles? I guess I understand for pairs, since only 4 events have a pairs event, but what's the point in making it tougher for dancers to make the Final?

    I guess it cuts costs a bit, but then why not cut costs more and reduce all 4 disciplines to 6?

    The cut of JGPF entries for pairs is reasonable. Not so much for Dance.

    Don't put ideas in their heads.

    The thing is that I suspect that the ISU council actually hates skating. Speedy has to at least. The moronic idea from last season to make a break before the first and second group and then provide "entertainment" to the audience because they were surely be bored with skating by then and needed a break just goes to show that they don't understand our enthusism for skating.

    Ok, ??? Why not just turn it into the Thanksgiving Day Parade?

    No idea what cutting down the number of dance teams is going to do for anyone...

    To reduce the cost of the JGPF, I propose to suppress this event.

    It makes sense with pairs, but having one less qualifier than number of events is idiotic.

    Good point. What if 7 different couples each win an event and take silver or bronze in the other?

    Well, then there'll be a tie for 6th place, or a three-way tie for 5th or four-way for 4th, and you'd end up with 7 teams in the final anyway.

    I really hope USA gets the final, since it seems odd they wouldn't have any JGP events 2 years in a row!

    Not necessarily. It'll become a really crazy war over who got the highest scores and whatever. Not a fun way to be left out of the JGPF.

    Beginning in 2012, there will be a Jr. World Synchronized Skating Championships, too.

    Considering the 2010 ISU Congress decision to implement the ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships under certain financial conditions, the Council decided to implement the ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships as of the season 2011/12. ISU Figure Skating Members will be informed shortly of the applicable financial and other conditions and will be invited to send applications to host this Championships.

    Bets on when the ISU JGP is reduced from 7 to 6 events.

    Who is volunteering to become a martyr and blow themselves up in the ISU headquarters in Swissland? Jackie you're closest.

    What's the big deal? The Junior Grand Prix Final is not the end-all-be-all of the sport. The reduction in spots only means that the final will consist of more elite dancers. All teams will still have a chance to gain important international experience on the JGP circuit, which is the goal for most teams anyway.
