Not really on topic, but those initials are going to be an issue for me. Just makes me think of Gilles/Poirier.

Still makes me think of Grishuk & Platov ;) . But yeah, I think we're pretty much toast here. Last year someone used P&P for Gilles & Poirier at Nebelhorn and I assumed they meant the Parsons so I asked the poster to please stick with final initials. Now there is just no hope.

Don't worry, I only used that abbreviation in this very specific context/post. :D I usually spell out teams' last names.

Chesapeake Open dance results/podium photos (including links to 2 partial fan cams) are posted in the Kiss & Cry section, currently open to all: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/threads/2019-chesapeake-open-incl-dance-camp-june-19-22-in-laurel-md.105662/page-2#post-5600098

Wolfkostin & Chen and Green & Parsons have been added to the International Selection Pool.

Team Envelopes are also updated, and the three novice medal teams are on the list :).

GETTING TO KNOW: ANYA LAVROVA & MAXWELL GART (June 29, 2019): https://www.ice-dance.com/site/getting-to-know-anya-lavrova-maxwell-gart/
They placed 3rd in their Junior debut at the Chesapeake Open last month.

Katarina Wolfkostin & Jeffrey Chen's 1st place showing at Chesapeake (scored 150+ total) landed them in the ISP (as expected).

Marina Zoueva has five new teams listed to debut at the Cactus Classic club competition in Arizona: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/threads/the-dance-hall-7-tripping-the-light-fantastic-2019-2020.105567/page-7#post-5603983

Coomes and Buckland appear to be coaching at Ice Works now. She just posted a picture on her IG with a bunch of young dancers. Speaking of Logan Bye (continuing from the Green/Parsons thread), is that him on the far right?

I enlarged the photo and that's not him. From far away he does resemble him, though.

Coomes and Buckland also coach at Philadelphia Skating Club & Humane Society. Slava Uchitel, the main coach for these students, takes them to Ice Works during the summer.

The new team of Katarina Wolfkostin/Jeffrey Chen (she debuted on JGP last year & placed J9 at Nationals with Howard Zhao) and Elizabeth Tkachenko/Alexei Kiliakov (2019 Novice champs) are listed on USFS' International Assignments page for JGP #1 in Courchevel, France.

ETA on 7/23 the 5 teams listed as subs for Courchevel (entries/subs link is posted in the JGP thread):

Ella ALES / Daniel TSARIK (J7 at 2019 Nationals)
Oona BROWN / Gage BROWN (J4; debuted on JGP in 2018)
Molly CESANEK / Yehor YEHOROV (J5)
Anna LAVROVA / Maxwell GART (new partnership; he was J10)
Avonley NGUYEN / Vadym KOLESNIK (J2/JW4; debuted on JGP in 2017)

Layla Karnes is on IPS.
ETA: And now she's not?

James Koszuta is off it.

Emily Bratti is listed with Mathieu Couyras on France's JGP sub list.

Lavrova & Gart are on the JGP sub list. One assumes both they and Tkachenko & Kiliakov qualified for the ISP based on their Texas Cannon scores & that they will be added to the ISP list during the next update.

Have I mentioned that I can't wait for the Lake Placid Ice Dance Championships this coming week? :biggrinbo

McNamara & Carpenter have confirmed they will be debuting their programs there.

And I'm told, per Anthony's instagram, that Carreira & Ponomarenko are going to be at Lake Placid too. Here we go!

Does anybody know if there is a way to view Lake Placid Ice Dance on-line?
Canada FS showing their qualifying comp on-line, Russia has it on TV! and USFSA cannot arrange anything for the fans. We cannot even see the list of participants!

Maybe if you are in the top 1% there is a way.
