    Oh no, poor you - what a horrid thing to happen. So frustrating!

    It's often possible to get a last-minute test somewhere when this sort of thing happens, so I hope you can.

    I just passed the Ten-Fox yesterday, which was the last of my bronze dances. My new goal is to pass the three pre-silver dances (Fourteenstep, European Waltz, and Foxtrot) by the end of next August.

    I'll settle for passing pre-Figures this summer and Figures 1 by late

    winter.
    I passed preliminary figures last Sunday at Lake Placid. I am pushing for passing Figures 1 next summer (Lake Placid is a lovely place to test and it's home ice for me).

    Land a fully rotated non-double footed double jump!(Other than double salchow) I can land a fully rotated one and put my foot down, or land it on one foot but then I cheat the rotation...*le sigh*

    Have a forward camel change foot to back camel 4 revs on each foot.

    November Goals:
    Learn the 1 axel and also do it in combination with either a loop or a toe loop.
    Learn the flying camel and use it in a flying back camel to forward camel.
    Use the flying camel in combination.
    Get ready to test Junior Bronze FS.

    Prepare to compete in Canadian Adult Silver with the possibility of competing in Adult Gold and testing Senior Bronze at the competition.
    Get the double Salchow I had a year and 4 months ago before injury back.
    Learn the double Toe and possibly the double loop.
    Learn flying sit.
    Improve layback spin if spine allowes me (two herniated discs).

    February:
    Compete at Skate Canada WOS Boston Pizza StarSkate Sectionals in adult events.

    April: Don't know what competitions will be in the Michigan area across the border that will have Adult events.

    May: Compete in the Ann Arbour Spring Skate

    June: either take a break for the summer or take my first coaching course (CanSkate Coach) and then take NCP Level 1 course.

    Sept. 2007 start coaching on the CanSkate and StarSkate sessions. Love the little ones.
