    Great to see three pairs at Hollins last night. Jordan Dodds and Eliza Smyth's SP is just gorgeous. And Matthew and Paris were really skating with power and conviction, I thought.

    Here's the Announcement for Skate DownUnder, Australia's new Senior B, August 20-22, 2013, in Sydney: http://waisa.org/Skate_DownUnder_fil...nouncement.pdf
    "ISU Members may enter up to 4 competitors for each category in Ladies, Men, Pairs and Ice Dance and their substitutes.
    The entries must reach the Organiser by Saturday 20th July 2013 at the latest."

    Danielle O'Brien mentioned last month (in her first blog on the AOC site) that she and Greg Merriman plan to start their international season at Skate DownUnder before attempting to qualify an Olympic dance spot for Australia at Nebelhorn: http://corporate.olympics.com.au/new...o-brien-s-blog

    Compared to Penrith, Canterbury has heating.

    New article on Danielle O'Brien & Greg Merriman: http://ice-dance.com/main/news/gener...olympic-season
    Excerpt:
    The upcoming season offers O’Brien & Merriman another chance to reach their goal of skating at the Olympic Games. Last year’s minimum technical score requirement just barely kept them out of the World Championships, where most of the Olympic berths were awarded, but the five remaining spots will be assigned at Nebelhorn Trophy in September. The Aussies’ programs this year will showcase their personalities, making for a fun season.

    "Our music selections for short dance this season comes from John Barry’s The Cotton Club soundtrack," Merriman said. "We really hope to translate the ballroom style of quickstep in the required Finnstep pattern and have chosen to combine this with a foxtrot and a fun, vibrant Charleston."

    "We have opted to keep our 2012/13 Circus free dance for the coming season, but have made significant changes in order to build and take the program to the next level," O'Brien added. "This program really highlights our personalities and was so much fun to compete last season that we look forward to performing it again."
    "Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isnít every four years, itís every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden

    Hi everybody,

    I'm currently living in London and going to Perth next month and going to stay for 3 months. I am not able to bring my skates :-( , so I wondered, are there any Perth skaters on here who'd be up for regular off ice practice during those 3 months? :-)

    It is great that Australia has 3 events we may qualify skaters for in the Olympics. Very exciting for our sport.
