    I want a warm-up jacket with that written on it. In sparkles. Just so everyone is clear on what to expect

    victoriajh -Have fun with your lesson & let us know how the rink works out with several skaters on the ice and the smaller size. I'm assuming they allow fewer people on the ice for FS than Olympic-sized rinks?

    The Zayak rule needs to be overhauled for jumps after the first in combination, and the sequence rule could be changed to de-value the second jump only, since relative to a combo, the second jump in a sequence should be less difficult (in theory and in general) than the second jump in a combo.
    I've never really liked the sequence penalty. Yes, the intervening step usually makes the following jump easier than in a combination, but it is still harder than that jump when done as a solo jump.

    But it enables you to squeeze two jumps into one pass, giving you more points.

    Tell us how it went, victoriajh! We are dying to know!

    I am so sad I don't live in Irvine anymore, because I would so, so, so love to skate there! I was so annoyed by having to drive to Anaheim or Aliso Viejo.
