Whats new for Weiss?
I was just wondering what Mike Weiss has been up to these days. I know he was skating a bit with SOI, but I think I remember hearing that he was keeping the eligable door open. I am remembering correctly? Does anyone know of his plans for this next season?
Weiss retired from eligible skating after the 2006 Four Continents Championships (or at least he isn't planning on competing in 2006-07) and is slated to do some Disson shows this fall.
He's actively involved in his Michael Weiss Foundation ("a non-profit organization supporting the next generation of U.S. Champions"), and his second annual MWF fundraiser show is scheduled for Saturday, September 9, 2:30 pm, at SkateQuest of Reston, Virginia. For more info on performers and tickets, go to:
Currently scheduled to perform: Todd Eldredge, Michael Weiss, Emily Hughes, Ina & Zimmerman, Lang & Tchernyshev, Inoue & Baldwin, Dan Hollander, Silvia Fontana, Matthews & Zavozin and Christine Zukowski.

Michael, for me, was/is an excellent competitive skater, but the choreography in his last couple of years did not produce much excitement.
I think if he got his eligibility back he would be formidable in the US Nats.
