    Thanks for the list.

    Hopefully all these new teams in pairs and dance get sent to these B internationals so they can get started working on their minimum scores for ISU championship events!

    Looks like a lot of Bs don't have pairs or dance But I agree- I hope they get sent to the ones that do. And I hope more events will start hosting them.

    It's good for Canada to get a Senior B competition, but I just wonder whether the name of it will cause some confusion with the regular Skate Canada?

    Amazing only a little over 4 months until the USA Senior B. The new season is coming up fast.

    They had a pretty strong roster (at least in terms of the US and Canada) in SLC last season. I wonder if that will fall off significantly as its not an Olympic year.

    Good to see the Sr Bs in North America and Australia/NZ continuing. I hope these boost competition and interest in the sport!

    Well Gracie competed at the Senior B in SLC the last 2 years but being National champion she might skip it this season and someone like Polina Edmunds might get a spot instead.

    Yes. I only listed the Senior Bs through October 2014 because copying-and-pasting was taking too much time.

    It's a good opportunity for some lower pairs and dance couples to have two Senior B's in North America. Hopefully there will be enough entries for both comps for the points to count.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I hope so. I bring this up remembering a couple of years ago the ISU listed Thornhill as a new Senior B, but Skate Canada cancelled it. They said at the time they were happy with the international opportunities Canadian skaters had.

    The dates for this are the same as the Octoberfest competition in Barrie, so I assume it will be held in conjunction with the Senior B? There are a lot of international skaters training in Canada and the US that they should be able to get a decent field, with many athletes not needing to travel far.

    I hope Skate Canada will use this as an opportunity to give ISU points/earn ISU TES minimums to Canadian skaters who aren't on the grand prix already. It was really sad that we could only send two pairs teams to 4CC this year, and in 2013 our fifth place ladies skater couldn't get 4CC or junior worlds (Mallet) because she had no minimum score.

    I didn't see the Announcements for SLC or Nebelhorn anywhere online yet.

    It'll be interesting to see which Senior B competitions become a part of the new Challenger series: http://www.isu.org/en/single-and-pai...figure-skating

    According to Communication 1858, the deadline for applying for inclusion in the Challenger series is 1 June for the upcoming season, and that has passed. The ISU will decide which of the applicants will be included, up to 11, with consideration given for continuity, and the ISU is supposed to disclose the selected competitions in a communication. The potentially eligible 17 competitions are:
    • USIFSC (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Lombardia (Ladies, Men, Pairs)
    • Nebelhorn (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance) -- confirmed in announcement
    • Ondrej Nepala (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Finlandia (Ladies, Men, Dance)
    • Skate Canada Autumn Classic (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Coupe de Nice (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Ice Star (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Volvo Open Cup (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Golden Bear (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Icechallenge (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Open d'Andorra (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Warsaw Cup (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • NRW Trophy (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance) -- I'm not sure if they'll include Dance results from NRW Trophy for Ice Dance from November
    • Santa Claus Cup (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)
    • Tallinn Trophy (Ladies, Men, Dance)
    • Golden Spin (Ladies, Men, Pairs, Dance)

    Of those, four have three disciplines, one being the 20-year-old Finlandia Trophy; the other 13 have four.

    While that signals intention, the competitions still must meet the requirements for the results to count:
    • A minimum of three Senior disciplines, which will eliminate some events automatically when the announcement confirms the disciplines being held. So far, that eliminates Asian Open and Skate Down Under NZ.
    • The competition must meet the requirements for participants
      • "The International Competition must include entries from minimum 12 different ISU Members, all disciplines combined.
      • In addition, the minimum number of entries per discipline are as follows:
        • Ladies/Men: minimum of 15 entries each, from at least 7 ISU Members;
        • Pair Skating: minimum of 8 entries from at least 4 ISU Members;
        • Ice Dance: minimum of 10 entries from at least 5 ISU Members"
    • The tech panel can't include two or more of the same ISU member, and two much be at least "International" and one must be at least "ISU"
    • The referee, Data Operator, and Replay Operator must be at least "International"
    • There must be at least seven judges from different ISU members.
    • The organizer has to comply with a bunch of administrative deadlines about choosing and disclosing officials, etc.
