    I passed my 3rd figure!

    Yesterday I passed my 3rd figure test (USFS). I'm hoping to get through 4th. We'll see!

    Just wanted to pass along that Rainbo Sports in Illinois does still have figure blades in stock if anyone else out there decides to give figures a try. It really is fun!

    Keep this up and we can invent a new sport -- figure skating.

    manleywoman, congrats on passing your 3rd figure test

    I didn't know that USFS still offers figure test.

    As long as there are still judges qualified to judge them, you can take figure tests!

    In fact, the judges' test forms for figures are here, at the bottom of the page:

    ya, when they took away figures in the early nineties - what happened?? I used to love patch - it help with my skating. Do they still do them anywhere??

    Congrats on passing that figure - it was a hard one

    my coach teaches figures during skills lessons sometimes, she's very big on edges and turns so she likes to make sure that everyone have worked on at least a couple figures.

    Most rinks will accommodate you if you really want to do it. Go for it!
