    I would expect Brynn Carman /AJ Reiss to stay junior. They are young and haven't medaled at junior yet. There would be no reason for them to move up.

    If they are still together I would expect Brittany Chase/Grant Marron and Gretchen Donlan/Andrew Speroff to move up to senior as they are not junior age eligible and did reasonably well last year.

    Here's a new Denney/Barrett article: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    Currently registered for the Senior Pairs event at Liberty in July:
    Molly Aaron/Daniyel Cohen S9
    Marissa Castelli/Simon Shnapir S10 (FS only)
    Felicia Zhang/Taylor Toth J1
    Britney Simpson/Nathan Miller J2
    Erika Choi Smith/Nathan Bartholomay J3
    Brittany Chase/Grant Marron J6
    Gretchen Donlan/Andrew Speroff J8

    ETA: Even though it hasn't been "officially" announced, I've been reliably informed that Lindsay Davis is skating Senior Pairs with Themi Leftheris (coached by Peter Oppegard). Davis won the 2010 Junior Ladies bronze medal and is continuing in singles, AFAIK.

    Here's a Zhang/Toth article from April: http://www.goldenskate.com/articles/2009/042510.shtml

    "Rhapsody in Blue" for the LP. ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz. I guess they want to go the lyrical route next season to show their maturity. Not sure about the music choice, but it's too early to tell. It's good that Judy Blumberg will work with them on their strokings. They need it.

    That is a terrible music choice for Denney/Barrett.

    Great to hear Themi has got a partner though. Thanks Sylvia!

    I think it's a positive step that they have another choreographer to work with them. That's what many of us wished for Denny/Barrett. Now I'm hoping for a top 5 or 6 placement at Worlds for them. If McBru get their act together and make the World team thisupcoming year, good for them. I want a real contest in Pairs at USA Nationals next season.

    Another senior pair continuing on is Moore/Gaumond. Does Chris Knierim have a new partner, and will they compete junior or senior?

    Glad to hear that they are specifically working with someone on a specific SS. It can only help...

    I'm thrilled that D/B are working with an outside choreographer! Rhapsody in Blue doesn't thrill me, but I can get over it. I hope they have a great season!

    I don't think this is new... They worked with her last season as well. I remember reading about it during Nationals.

    I'm listing the NEW Junior and Novice pair teams that I know about so far...

    Cassie Andrews & Timothy LeDuc (he has relocated from Iowa to Indianapolis; they are JGP age-eligible under current ISU rules) - registered for the Junior SP at Liberty.

    Kloe Bautista & Tyler Harris (she has relocated from southern California to Boston; they are not JGP age-eligible) - registered for Junior SP and FS at Liberty.

    Haven Denney & Daniel O'Shea (he has relocated from Chicago to Florida; they are JGP age-eligible).

    Kaitlin Budd & Grisha Fournier are a new Novice or Junior team (he has relocated from southern California to Troy, Michigan; they are JGP age-eligible), according to Fournier's site: http://grishafournier.com/

    A new Novice team (JGP age-eligible) is Madeline Aaron/Max Settlage (both have relocated from Arizona to Colorado Springs) - they're registered for Liberty. This new pairing is also confirmed on Settlage's site: http://maxsettlage.com/

    Trivia gleaned from their sites: Fournier was adopted from Russia at the age of 8 and Settlage was adopted from Vietnam when he was 1.

    Wonder what's going on with McBru these days? I really hope they have gotten their heads together and come back strong this coming season. My heart really broke for them last season, I thought they had a great free skate, fit them so well, and it's a shame they weren't able to really rock it like they should have. I wouldn't mind them keeping that long program, it really deserves to be skated well like I know they are capable of. Wishing them good luck for this year!

    McLaughlin/Brubaker’s next scheduled public skating appearance is the “Skate For Hope” benefit show on June 19th (Yankowskas/Coughlin is the other headliner pair) – link to the event thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=73673

    I posted the link to the May 30th Houston Chronicle article on Becky Bereswill starting pairs in the Bereswill/Young thread in GSD.

    Here’s a Mark Ladwig article (June 8th): Hoping the Fairy tale will continue.

    Just copying over a post from the Grand Prix thread regarding Rockne Brubaker:

    I checked online and September 1, 2010 is the application deadline for all skaters and teams that intend to compete in the U.S. Nationals qualifying system in the 2010-11 season (including those with byes to 2011 Nationals).

    Thread in GSD where McLaughlin/Brubaker's split was officially announced on 6/22: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=74035

    That's a little over 2 months. Not much time.

    EDIT : But if I understand the convoluted Grand Prix rules, it's still possible in theory for Rockne to find another partner and skate in the GP, thereby preserving his bye to Nationals.

    In theory yes, but in reality, it is impossible because he would have had to have partnered with someone American and amazing with an established elite reputation that "clicked" well with him from the start back in February, then put together programs, train, and have great summer results to probably be even considered as a TBA pick for Skate America. I doubt that any other GP federation would have picked the new pair for a partnership.

    From what I understand, a GP assignment is not an automatic Nationals bye. There needs to be a conflict with regionals/sectionals and/or a special bye given by USFSA.
