    Yikes...I mean driving...I will change that right now.

    It is free to go....you don't need tickets. It's only about 40 minutes from my house...I might have to check it out. Ryan Bradley and Rachel Flatt will be competing there

    Yay! Summer competitions are now officially underway. I was getting a bit tired of the perennial summer threads (i.e. Mao vs. Yu-na).

    I think Patrick Chan will be also competing. Does anyone know where I can find the competitions results?

    Broadmoor Open just concluded, if you have some extra bucks, you can watch the on-demand replays.

    You can find the results here:

    McLaughlin/Brubaker only skated their short to 'Malaguena' with an original music cut. The choreography was very nice, but they didn't skate very well.Yankowskas/Coughlin kept their SP, they didn't skate very well. TROMBLEY & IBARRA were good.

    Alexe Gilles skated well in long program, I like the choreography of both her sp and lp.

    Ryan Bradley and Jeremy Abbott had very interesting programs, but none of the top men jumped well.

    A few Jr. pairs to be dispatched to JGP also showed up as well. The novice champion was impressive.

    I have to say that both Abbot and Bradley picked great music for their respective styles. I am also glad that they went for the quads.

    Sillylionlove-I hope you'll come back and post some reviews of the competition! I've always wanted to go to Liberty but it never falls at a good time of the year for me. Have a great time!

    Alexe Gilles skated as a Senior at Broadmoor and earned 105.06 for her FS to a latin medley.

    In her senior debut at Broadmoor Open this past weekend, Alexe Gilles landed one of each triple, 5 total out of 6 planned, in her Senior FS (z=lutz, r=loop):
    3f-2t, 3z fall, 2a, 3r, 3z-2t, 3t, 3s-2t-2r. She had fun bongo music with different Latin beats (choreographed by Catarina Lindgren Dickson), wore a bright yellow dress and sported a long ponytail. Her unofficial score (as flashed on the arena's Jumbotron) was 105.06.

    Becky Bereswill (2nd place) wore blue and skated to "Nessun Dorma." Her jumps were: 2a, 3z-3r (good attempt, but I later heard both jumps were downgraded), 2s, 3f (turnout on 1 ft), 3r (flip out), 2a-3t (on the crescendo of the music), walley to 3z. She scored 93.50 (unofficial).

    ETA info about 2008 Liberty: Both Gilles and Bereswill competed at Liberty last year and Gilles is scheduled to return this year (along with her fellow club members Abbott, Bradley, Flatt, Mroz, etc.). A list of registered skaters is usually not available online before the start of the competition.

    Liberty (July 15-19, Aston, PA) is free. It's metal bleacher seating so I recommend bringing something soft to sit on. Link to the event schedule: http://www.libertyskating.org/LibertyNews.html#schedule

    Some of the deepest and most competitive events are the Junior and Novice ones. I'll post more later.

    The Summer Competitions

    There doesn't seem to be threads for the Summer Comps. Maybe this should go into the Comps Folder.

    Anyway does anyone have any results and reviews of the Broadmore, Detroit, and the Liberty (once it takes place)?

    It's kind of interesting to hear about the music being used as well as the overall performance. It's early in the season so results should not be taken seriously but scores may show something.

    as well as merging the "Summer Competitions" thread into this one and retitling it.
