    And yes, given Canada has 2 spots per discipline, it's very disappointing that Skate Canada did not use the second Ladies spot.
    Ralph/Hill are going to Oberstdorf, along with Paul/Islam. I think that sets up our dance teams well to earn points.

    Oh, that's fantastic. I'm glad that all the bronze contenders are getting opportunities after all, be it through the GP or Senior Bs (or, in R/H's case, one of each). Also smart, given the new TES minimums.

    Thank heavens. The first tentative schedule I saw had the Saturday events ending at around 7:00 PM - just the time when the football madness would be in full swing. This is much better.

    Tiffany Vise tweeted today:
    "So excited to be heading to Utah in a couple weeks to compete at the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic"

    Glad USFS has added Vise/Baldwin as the 3rd pair team.

    After the roster is finalized on the ISU website, we will have open a prediction contest for the big 3 "Senior B" fall competitions (US Classic, Nebelhorn, and Finlandia).

    Look for more details in the Kiss-N-Cry section as we get closer to the event.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Prices and challenge skate schedule - https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&p...3BPOwj5l3ClmUQ

    I still haven't seen anything about who the challenge skate competitors are. So far the plans are to have this event in Salt Lake every year. As a nickname - I suggest we just call it The Classic

    That is a terrible name. USFS should be trying to make skating appear more edgy and not doing exactly the opposite.

    Sorry about that. It does open for me. It won't copy and paste so here is my best attempt.

    Prices are $5.00 per day or $15.00 all event.

    Wednesday - Sept. 12
    Official practice

    Thursday - Sept. 13
    Junior Men's short - 9:05 a.m.
    Senior Short Dance - 11:30 a.m.
    Novice Pattern Dance - 1:20 p.m.
    Senior Men's Short Program - 1:45 p.m.
    Novice Ladies Short Program - 4:45 p.m.
    Novice Pairs Short Program - 6:10 p.m.

    Friday - Sept. 14
    Junior Ladies Short Program - 8 a.m.
    Junior Pairs Short Program - 9:45 a.m.
    Senior Ladies Short Program - 12:45 p.m.
    Senior Pairs Short Program - 3:45 p.m.
    Novice Men's Short Program - 6:15 p.m.

    Saturday - Sept. 15
    Junior Men's Free Skate - 9 a.m.
    Senior Free Dance - 11:30 a.m.
    Novice Free Skate - 1:30 p.m. (I assume this is dance)
    Senior Men's Free Skate - 2 p.m.
    Novice Ladies Free Skate - 5:15 p.m.
    Novice Pairs Free Skate - 6:45 p.m.

    Sunday - Sept. 16
    Junior Ladies Free Skate - 7:45 a.m.
    Novice Men's Free Skate - 9:45 a.m.
    Junior Pairs Free Skate - 10:30 a.m.
    Senior Ladies Free Skate - 1:45 p.m.
    Senior Pairs Free Skate - 5 p.m.

    I didn't check for typos so let me know if you see anything glaring. I don't know why this schedule is not more widely available. No word yet on who is skating in the challenge cup.

    For those coming - Saturday is a BIG football game. I strongly suggest if you are driving to come early and get a parking space. The whole area will be a zoo by early afternoon.

    The event starts next week. How much closer can we get?

    I don't think this link has been posted - it explains the developmental competition for invited U.S. junior and novice skaters/teams: http://skatingmagazineblog.com/2012/...kelly-vogtner/

    I will post more information later.

    We will open the contest on Thursday in the Kiss-n-Cry section, one week before the competition begins, just like we do with the GP event contests.

    Also, I have the entries from the USFS website, but there is no official entry list on the ISU website at this time. It would be nice to have a more definitive roster before we open the contest. (Hint, hint, USFS! )
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I don't see junior dance listed on the schedule above. is that an error, or is there no junior dance event?

    I just checked the flyer again and it doesn't list a junior dance session. I'm guessing no jr. dance at this event. Seems unusual when there is a novice dance event.
