Do I hope Caroline will compete? Yes. Do I think that she, Mirai, and Rachael will all show up at this competition? Not really. I think Mirai probably will do it, but Caroline and Rachael are up in the air, Caroline because of the injury and Rachael's been pretty busy traveling/she already did a summer competition.
Local competitions (like Golden West) - you fill out your entry form, pay the fee and you are listed as a competitor. If you are going to withdraw, they typically request you do it as early as possible to allow for schedule adjustments.
I originally posted the following in the Golden West thread in the Events forum -- link to the event thread is: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28665
ETA: If a skater being monitored cannot compete due to injury, they would inform USFS and make alternative arrangements.Team B envelope skaters Nagasu, Zhang, and Inoue/Baldwin are expected to compete here for "competition readiness" monitoring in preparation for their Grand Prix events.

I saw her training last week, jumping and doing choreo in good spirit. Knee looks ok.
has the mule kick gone?
n hw abt her speed?
Caroline lose her mule-kick? That would be like losing her pearl spin.
Let the betting begin for what color her long program dress will be-- as it is the Nutcracker, I will be shocked if its anything other than white, pink, or baby blue.
Three colors I'm not exactly excited to see her in (again). No more pastels please!
