The Zamboni Rocks!!!
Liberty info and other summer competitions in the U.S. and Canada
Ok...does anyone know how to or if you need tickets to go see this competion. This might be the only live competition I can get to for this year.
Landing my axel..............again
I don't think so..............
I just checked their website libertyskating.org and it does not say anything........
Anyways, have fun checking out all of the great talent in our country!!!
Edit: This is kind of random but on your signature it says diving my zamboni... should it be driving?..............
The Zamboni Rocks!!!
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.

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.
Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
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.
and so go the Summer winds. It will all be different in LA with a hint of Spring.

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.

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.
Joe, see posts #5 and #10 above re. last week's Broadmoor Open.
Some of the major club (non-qualifying) comps coming up in the U.S. are:
Liberty Summer Competition, July 15-19, Aston, PA
Skate Detroit, July 23-26, Bloomfield Hills, MI
Lake Placid Dance Championships, July 30-Aug. 2, Lake Placid, NY

ETA: Thanks to the GS mod. for splitting off all the posts relating to Alissa Czisny at the Grand Rapids Open and creating a separate thread at http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22464
as well as merging the "Summer Competitions" thread into this one and retitling it.
