I think the reasoning behind "No Fumie, no Sasha?" was just maybe Sasha wouldn't show up because she doesn't want to, not because she wouldn't want to compete without Fumie. I'd bet Sasha WILL be there to fullfill her committment as reigning National Champion and stay in the good graces of the USFSA, plus, I'm sure she will be top billed skater and a headliner, which is good publicity.
I think this will be a great preview for SA! It will be interesting to see how different results will be between SA and Campbells.
Is it almost Campbell's time yet????

Agreed. For the first time I am looking forward to the Campbells. However, I still believe it is a rehearsal, albeit and important rehearsal, for the GPs and respective Nats.
It will be Sasha, Kimmie, Emile versus Mao, Mai, and Miki for the best dress rehearsal.
I see no point in predicting anyone to win Campbells but one can hope.
