    Looks like I'll be shooting for 2014. Can't see Arizona in my future, although it is nice for the westerners to have another one in their neck of the woods.

    Indeed!

    I'm happy with both Arizona and Massachussetts. Nice to not be in the midwest.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    I know! It's so exciting to be able to compete in my own time zone (there's nothing worse than having to compete at what would be 5am my time)!

    Yay for a no-threat-of-snow AN 2013 that is close for our Pacific skaters --- and 2014 up in the NE for our Eastern skaters. Great variety to spice things up!

    Thank you to the bid team for all their work with the bids and deciding to tackle 2 years at once -- and most of all thanks to the clubs nationwide who submitted bids, whether or not they won. It's quite a bit of work just to get a bid submitted, and it's good to see some variety and fresh support for adult qualifying competitions!

    For those planning to compete at Sectionals (qualifying or non-qualifying) or Adult Nationals this 2013 adult season, don't forget the deadline is February 1!

    I've been thinking about competing if any of these events ever came back to the Northeast. And now there's one in Wayne, where I skate every Saturday, and one in Mass., where I'm from originally. I guess that means I have to finally do this!

    Where would I go to look up what level I might be competing at, what's required at each level, etc.? I plan to suck, but I'd like to suck while following the rules.

    I like your attitude.
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    How do I know what level I'm at? If I wanted to skate some sort of singles... I have passed adult pre-bronze moves, and hope to have passed bronze moves by then. I have passed one pre-silver dance so far. I have no freeskating tests. Would I be bronze in singles?

    For adult Nationals, bronze is the lowest level and it's a qualifying competition, so to compete singles freestyle you need to have passed the bronze freestyle test.

    For sectionals, bronze is a nonqualifying event, so it depends whether the local organizing committee chooses to allow entrants to "skate up." They also might offer a pre-bronze event.

    These adult competitions also offer Dramatic and Light Entertainment events. See rules 4700-4740 in the rulebook: http://www.usfigureskating.org/conte...20eReaders.pdf

    If you've passed one pre-silver dance, it looks like you would have to skate at the silver level.

    I think (but don't quote me), that you would be eligible to compete either bronze solo dance or pre-silver solo dance with your dance test. You might be eligible to compete interpretive as well - not sure if that one's pre-silver dance or silver-dance for eligibility. In order to skate freestlye at AN, you'd have to pass the pre-bronze and bronze freestyle tests, but you might be able to compete at pre-bronze (skating up) at sectionals, assuming they have pre-bronze at their open competition and that they allow people to skate up.

    When in doubt, ask your adult section vice-chair.

    They've split the solo dance levels this year (except for bronze). Pre-silver is the Willow Waltz and the Foxtrot.

    Oops, forgot about solo dance.

    From the rulebook I linked above, rules 6650 and 6660, you should be able to do either pre-silver or (if you don't pass any more dances before then) bronze.'


    I meant if she wants to do Dramatic or Light Entertainment, she would need to do silver.
