Canadians - Senior Dance - OD - Report
The marks were announced and I now (sitting in my proper seat) can't see the board well enough to copy down the tec & tcs scores. I just get what is announced.
The following notes are what I saw while the skater was on the ice and have not been checked against the protocol for mistakes. I didn't see the first 2 groups - there just isn't enough time between the events to get everything done and get back up to see the start of the next event.
This report is late because I would have missed the beginning of the pairs in order to get it posted right after the event (and I wasn't about to miss any of the pairs).
The official results & detailed skater's protocols are posted on the Skate Canada website
