    Did Davis/White skate their 2013-2014 programs at Champs' Camp? If so, what music are they using?

    Yes. They haven't announced their program music yet.

    So no one was there when they skated the programs? Or did the observers take a vow of silence?

    Thank you for the information, TanithandBenFan. I guess I'll have to be more patient.

    So why have D/W not announced what there music is going to be this season? This is getting to be a bit tedious with them not saying what it is.

    Wow, does USFS pay for every coach, choreographer, etc. a skater works with to fly to Champs Camp?

    Mirai Nagasu tweeted this group photo late last night: "Home after a successful #champscamp. Thank you @USFigureSkating for the best one yet." http://instagram.com/p/dd8cBRi5Tj/
    The 9 skaters pictured are: Caroline Z, Mirai, Adam, Max, Christina, Agnes, Maia, Ross and Ricky (still drinking his breakfast liquids?).

    ETA that I've posted an article with updates on Gold, Gao and Czisny in the U.S. Ladies news thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post3980902

    Yes, they cover the transportation costs and house everyone at the OTC. Many of the skaters/their families then have to pick up the tab from some of their coaches, as some coaches charge per diems/ for lessons missed while attending such an event. #nothinginlifeisfree

    Do attendees sign "non-disclosure" agreements about what happens there, also?

    Not sure. You'd have to ask an attendee.

    But would it be violating a non-disclosure agreement to disclose whether there was a non-disclosure agreement?

    The first part of the latest "Inside Edge" blog is about Champs Camp: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/...mp-was-a-blast

    Photos shared by the auction winner who attended Champs Camp: http://skatingmagazineblog.com/2013/...mp-experience/

    Wonder what the winning bid for the auction was. Before the bidding ended, I had checked and the top bid was still considerably below the actual "book value" of the benefits (i.e., rack rate for hotel, air fare, etc) so the folks who won it, potentially got a decent deal. Of course, I presume a lot of services were attained through donations (corporate sponsors) and/or at significantly discounted rates, so perhaps it still did "make money"

    I expect the "winner" was required to sign some sort of non-disclosure agreement as well. I could just imagine it being some fan with an iPhone linked to their twitter account going a bit nuts and blowing the whole "this is a closed event' set up/purpose of the event.

    I have to admit I dislike "experiences" being auctioned. Because then it becomes all about how much money you have, not how much you love skating or anything like that.

    The bid had reached almost $6000 right before the close date, so it was pretty high!
