I was thinking of who could get sent and I was thinking, perhaps

Women - Amber, Lindsay, EliseLin and ….Ava has already had two or three this season?
Just Elyce. Her last name is Lin-Gracey. The other leading option from the JGP would be Sarah Everhardt, IMO.

Men torgy and Lucas
Hmmm... yeah, Torgy wouldn't be a bad choice. Tomoki killed it at Sectionals, so I could see him being assigned too.

Pairs heck send five if possible
Can only send 3, like the other disciplines. And, honestly, we don't really have 5 teams that warrant another international.

Dance Z&K, Browns
Eh... I get the logic for both, but I think there are other teams that should be prioritized (HawBak & FlorDes). I suppose if HawBak aren't ready then, sure, send the Browns too.

Rebecca and Filippo could still make the Grand Prix final for this weekend….

I think the USFSA had a missed opportunity, in who they sent for pairs

hmmmm. Why do I not know this team? How do I not know a US dance team?
Because you haven't been paying attention to domestic comps? They were new last season and competed at Nats but he didn't get his release until this summer. They were scheduled for an earlier Challenger (Budapest, IIRC) and then WD. They finished 2nd to Wolfkostin/Tsarevski at the US Dance Final last week.

Ugh. I hope my math is wrong, but it appears that the rhythm dances of both the GPF and Golden Spin are scheduled at the same time. Fortunately, there are only 6 at GPF, but it means having to choose what to watch first.

Of the ten originally scheduled events, only TWO are outside of Europe? Come on. That is not exactly encouraging skaters who come from/train in Asia and North America to participate. Gives quite the advantage to European skaters to get points, world standings, and prize money. I do not like this! And I don’t feel that it’s balanced out by the GP, with its very limited roster.

Is there even a stream for Golden Spin? It may turn out to be moot.

To be fair, there aren't many non-European skating competitions held during the time frame (Sept-Dec) when the Challenger Series happens, and there aren't many non-European competitions during the rest of the year either.

Well sometimes it's three if CS US Classic is happening, but yeah. Agreed. Two in Asia and two in North America would be better, Europe can take six if it wants.

ETA: Actually, no, three in Asia is totally doable, Denis Ten Memorial, one in SEA (have done Asian Opens before), and one in East Asia.

SEA is doable if they want to move the competition from late August to mid-late November.

Where in East Asia would you suggest? Japan is full of domestic comps - regionals, sectionals, novice and junior nationals - during that same time frame, Korea only cares about their ranking comps, China has their own domestic comps...

I was going to say China - convert Shanghai Trophy into a CS event instead of an invitational fluff. I guess the problem is that they also do Short Track with it which is valued much more, and it's on one of their national holidays so it's probably hard for anyone to convince them, but I do think it'd be valuable for their skaters, and anyone Korean and Japanese who wants to knock a CS out before going to the GPs, without traveling too much. And they do seem willing to jump at hosting fs all of a sudden, so...

Otherwise East Asia is doomed. But SEA should at least try.
