@ice coverage can you please repost your comments here? :)

Abridged/edited version better for this thread :):

After the lists of events for singles/pairs/dance and for synchro, page 6 has five solo dance internationals (plus two adult internationals).

After first edition of Kings Cup International in Oct 2023 in California, it will not return in 2024.​

Some interesting changes - we know Finland would not host Finlandia Trophy so some other needed to host. Happy Tallinn will have one instead. They deserve it with all the great work they have done hosting Championships the last couple of season and geographically not far from Finland.

I do not like that it collide with GP Espoo, but what can we do, schedule is busy (bye bye social life ;))

Denis Ten Challenger is pretty early this season - it´s like a month earlier? Or was it perhaps later last season?

I find it very interesting that Iceland will host another international competition at fall and have two international overall. Bravo! However, Reykjavik International Games often come too close to Euros, so maybe the fall competition will have more competitors and maybe higher ranked skaters.

Norway will continue with Sonja Henie Trophy, great! In addition they will host Nordics Open next season, so they will even host two up close. There goes my dream of Norway bidding on Euros 2025... particular since they will have WC in Single Distance in March. I was thinking Euros could have been a perfect rehearsal for WC in March. I was sure Finland would host Nordics.. they havn´t since 2018. But I guess since they even cancelled Finlandia, Nordics wasn´t a priority either.

Talking of dreams of Euros 2025, Sweden is completely out of the international calendar next season... A pity with a full team and up and coming skaters. They really should be in the mix as well - and with their experience of hosting Championships before and an open calendar figure skating wise, it seems actually like Sweden could be a good option. Tallinn with a Challenger now out of the question I think, same with Finland, Sheffield would be two years in a row, same with Kaunas... Torino has World University Game next season.

I´ll say Germany or Sweden.

Speaking of Germany - they will have Skate Berlin next season, cool!
