    What is the Thornhill Summer Skate, Aug. 15-17 like? My family and I are thinking of being in the area on vacation at that time. Is it worth our while? Thanks!

    Thornhill Summer Skate: August 14 - 17th, Thornhill, Ontario

    BC SummerSkate: August 1 - 4, Burnaby, British Columbia
    The 2008 dates for BC/Yukon SummerSkate are Aug. 14-17.

    U.S. Figure Skating is using COS Summer Skate in Thornhill (near Toronto) as a "Developmental International" for the second year in a row, along with BC/YT SummerSkate near Vancouver. Here's the link to the U.S. skater/team assignments for these two Canadian comps: http://www.usfsa.org/content/Develop...%20Results.pdf

    Some other competitions in September that could attract decent sized fields before the qualifying events of October (regionals) and Sectionals (November) - including Fall Figure 8 in Ottawa, and a new dance competition in Colorado Springs - Pikes Peak Classic - in September the week of the 22nd

    Here's a preview article about the Liberty summer competition this week: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    Among those scheduled to compete are reigning Canadian champion Patrick Chan, who won the senior men's event here last season, landing his first-ever triple Axel in competition; 2007 U.S. bronze medalist Alissa Czisny; reigning U.S. bronze medalist Ashley Wagner, who is expected to compete in the senior ladies short program event; and Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig, fifth in pairs at the 2008 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
    I believe this is Alissa Czisny's first-ever trip to Liberty.

    Competition schedule (Tue. July 15-Sat. July 19) on the host club's site: http://www.libertyskating.org/LibertyNews.html#schedule

    Here's an unofficial list of just some of the skaters (most are in the U.S. team envelopes) that I've heard are scheduled to compete at Liberty this week.

    Skaters scheduled for the Senior Grand Prix:
    Patrick Chan (CAN), Jeremy Abbott, Ryan Bradley, Brandon Mroz, Rachael Flatt, Ashley Wagner (SP only here), Alissa Czisny, Evora/Ladwig

    Scheduled for JGP for the USA:
    Ladies--Melissa Bulanhagui, Becky Bereswill, Alexe Gilles, Brittney Rizo, Kristine Musademba, Marissa Secundy (all will compete Senior at Liberty except for Secundy, not sure about Rizo yet)
    Men (all will compete Junior at Liberty)--Armin Mahbanoozadeh, Curran Oi, Keegan Messing, Alexander Johnson
    Pairs--Castelli/Shnapir

    Sr. Men, cont.: Shaun Rogers, Tommy Steenberg, Douglas Razzano, Viktor Pfeifer (AUT)...
    Sr. Ladies, cont.: Blake Rosenthal...
    Jr. Men, cont.: Grant Hochstein, Ross Miner...
    Sr. Pairs: Evora/Ladwig, Katz/Lynch, Moscovitch/Moscovitch (CAN), Paulin/Shales (CAN)...
    Jr. Pairs: Tanovich/Chau, Castelli/Shnapir, Moore-Towers/Evans (CAN), Jones/Gaskell (CAN)...

    Check the Liberty club site for official results to be published (hopefully) during and after the competition (how often the site is updated will depend on how busy the club volunteers and competition officials are this week).

    Pfeifer is back competing for Austria. He was 3rd at South Altantic Regionals, but finished 8th at Eastern Sectionals. I guess he realized how difficult it was to just make it to Nationals in the US.

    I was hoping to go to Liberty tomorrow since I live about 45 minutes away. But it's the hubby's bday and I forgot about it (YIKES!!) and we have to do what he wants...and skating is not one of those things. Maybe next year!!

    I'm familiar with all these guys and now I can say that they take turns winning over each other. I'm sure it was fun to watch.
