Indy Pairs Challenge 2008 (Aug. 8-10)
Keauna McLaughlin/Rockne Brubaker debuted their new FS to "West Side Story" (choreographed by Lea Ann Miller) at the Indy Pairs Challenge club competition earlier this month. There are two versions on youtube -- this one is filmed from the stands and through the netting on that side of the rink: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-oI-HAcYdU
Here's the other version of McLaughlin/Brubaker's FS, combined with Amanda Evora/Mark Ladwig's FS (filmed mostly below the netting; link originally posted on the ISU board): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck7z-8peRKk

(Paetsch/Meekins had just teamed up a few weeks before this competition.)
Nice programs here. I really enjoyed M/B, that's going to be an awesome free skate. Also really liked Evora/Ladwig's skate, they have some terrific lifts. Tough act to follow from Shen/Zhao's version of this beautiful music but they did a good job. Can't wait to see how both of these programs improve.
Yankowskas/Coughlin, a surprise for me. They were quite lovely.
Paetsch/Meekins, they each had a diferent partner but they found each other after splitsville. No judgement this season.
Trombley/Ibarra - Always nice and for this early in the season, very nice.
and... World Peace!
I love Brooke and Ben's skating...
thanks for the vids, when I get the time I'm gonna sit and watch everyone
