I think the worst thing with this schedule is that the junior and novice won't be able to watch the seniors compete live. There is nothing better than watching it live and the jr and nov will be at home training or traveling while the sr compete. It's so inspiring for the lower levels to see the seniors compete. I really hope this is a one time thing while they celebrate the 100th anniversary in the city that hosted the first Nationals in 1914. Hopefully next year will go back to the normal schedule of nov & jr followed by sr and a gala with the champions from nov & jr skating in the show.
