    Seems to me that you are just trying to start trouble.

    Yasa and Yuri have to be members of the PSA. Their respective phone numbers/email addresses should be listed in the membership directory. Since you seem to be the only person that can't wait for an official announcement, (if there is even going to be something of the sort) why don't you do us all a favor and contact them directly. Then you can post some facts here instead of trying to stir the pot. Just sayin'.

    OR you can just ignore my posts if they're an issue for you.

    I have been up until now. You just seem like someone with an ax to grind and quite frankly, it's annoying!

    If we ignore her, she can't cause trouble.

    And now I'm a female? I find some of you to be quite amusing. I don't comprehend the sensitivity to this subject. I find it very fascinating.

    All Wildfire is wondering is whether or not they have made a decision. But I am surprised.... for someone who knew so much about Yuri and Yasa's plans to all of a sudden not be in the know start to ask what everyone else has heard is a bit humorous and definitely discredits any of your "Facts."

    Don't validate " trouble" by responding to it , if that's how you feel. Be a bigger person and don't cruise this thread !! I personally have enjoyed the post.

    I don't see wildfire as causing trouble. The questions seem reasonable to me.

    Sounds like a parent trying to find options for their skater or a coach checking out potential competition in the area for students. I am sure there is some "truth" to all the rumours, I just hope their own current skaters aren't caught by surprise.

    Cool

    If one Googles "Colorado Springs Ice Dance" what comes up is the new Colorado Springs Ice Dance Academy. Seems Tiffany has built a positive alternative to programming at the World Arena. She has moved on and has created a wonderful training program for skaters. Let's focus on what we have and move on!
    Let the WA suffer the consequences of their decision making...their current skaters can easily find the Colorado Springs Ice Dance Academy and take part in positive training!

    misinformation

    In response to "Madm": if you are going to accuse the coaches of "openly fueding" on the ice and thereby tainting both of their reputations, perhaps you need to site examples. One of these coaches had been observed screaming at rink personnel, other students and other parents while the other coach chose to not engage in the insanity. If nothing else, this reflects very poorly on the management of that facility for not dealing with the agressor a LONG time ago!

    You seem very interested in tarnishing just one of their reputations and yet you can't seem to site specific examples. It takes two to tango as I'm sure Tiffany and Patti know very well. But I think two Olympic coaches would be a great chance for the WA dance program to get even stronger than it is. Other than the Gilles kids and a novice medalist, the situation for ice dancers in the springs was very bleak so I truly hope yasa and yuri breath life back into the program there.

    Something tells me that there's nothing ironic in someone who chose the name "PITBULL" calling someone else the agressor.

    I have posted FACTS but some don't want to believe them. I could contact Yasa and Yuri but you wouldn't beleive what I would post about them anyway. Maybe you should contact them, so you can hear the answer for yourself. That's probably the only way you'll believe it.

    wildfire, someone upthread posted their personal experience with the situation and you didn't believe them.

    ETA to add the post:

    Teaching a seminar is not the same thing as relocating.

    I don't want to see any potential teams that form this year to shy away from Ann Arbor thinking the program may leave. For our part, we just got a partner's visa in order in the fall to skate in Ann Arbor, so it would be a big hardship to alter that visa to go elsewhere.

    What part of "nobody else seems to care about this as much as you" do you not understand?

    Contact them. Ask them your questions. Satisfy your "curiosity". No one here is demanding that you post what you find out.

    It may surprise you to know that a move to WA by Yasa & Yuri wouldn't shock me in the least. It's the fact that you keep pressing the issue that I find irritating. If they are going to move, I'm sure there are a lot of logistics to work out.

    They aren't going to make an announcement any sooner just because you continue to post the "facts" you know. Lots of people are looking at this thread, and im sure that many of them have information. If the interested people want to share what they know, someone else would've confirmed your stories. Maybe people dont want to share what they know because it's none of our business until Yasa, Yuri, and USFS want to make it our business. I'm sure the interested parties are aware of any changes that might/or might not be happening.

    Cool Interested party!

    I "am" an interested party that can confirm all that Wildfire has stated up until now. The short and sweet of it is: 1. Ann Arbor, for good reason, would like Yuri and Yasa to stay put. 2. WA/COS are in dire need of good reputable dance coaches to breath new life back into a dying program!

    Facts to think about....more/less for the doubters out there:

    1. WA in need of ice dance coaches and put the word out.
    2. "Free" seminar at the WA with Yuri and Yasa...........sounds alot like scouting out the WA.
    3. Looking at/for houses in area......last I knew this wasn't in the COS tour guide.
    4. Refusing to answer any questions related to a possible move to COS.
    5. Word is.....negotiations are in the works with WA for more ice dance sessions before final decision is made.

    Who knows which way this will go due to negotiations, but sadly one group will lose out and another will reap the rewards! Keeping fingers crossed....

    So you suddenly felt the need, all by your independent self, to join FSU and "confirm" this speculation? Yarite.
