Hey, itโ€™s almost a year from now, we can hope.

Itโ€™s a shame that the cancelled Japanese JGP from this season wasnโ€™t carried over.

But the Russian JGP is literally in Siberia, so expect a Chelyabinsk-sized crowd again.

Well, most of these countries probably have enough vaccine supply to innoculate a majority of their populations by that time and since these competitions are in smaller cities instead of larger ones it may actually be feasible.

My only concern is with the 2nd event, since Canada seems to be extra-cautious with all-things-******.

How are JGP spots to be allocated for next year given no Junior Worlds? (Sorry if I missed it earlier.)

That's very good news for Italian Junior Men and Georgian Junior Ice Dancers, who will have two entries at every event. The Georgian Federation should be recruiting right now. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช
