    2009 Quebec Summer Championships (Aug. 6th-9th)

    I've noticed there wasn't a thread for this event, so I thought I'd start one. The info for the competition is listed under "Championnats québécois d'été" http://www.patinage.qc.ca/index.asp?id=444

    Some of the participants:

    Sr Men:
    - Shawn Sawyer
    - Adam Rippon
    - Ian Martinez
    - Paul Poirier

    (I see that Marc-André Craig is listed for the LP---I guess he's back?)

    Sr Ladies:
    - Joannie Rochette (SP only)
    - Cynthia Phaneuf
    - Amélie Lacoste

    Sr Pairs:
    - Dubé & Davison
    - Duhamel & Butin (SP only)
    - Brodeur & Mattatall (SP only)

    Sr Dance:
    I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't recognize any of the couples listed. :o


    For those are who are planning to attend, is there anyone who is willing to record (at least some of) the performances?

    I don't know yet if I'll be able to record, seeing as I might be volunteering (not to mention the fact I'm quite bad at recording... seeing the program through the tiny screen drives me crazy!), but I'll try to report back on some of the top skaters' programs

    Okay, so I will be there all 4 days, and should be able to see most of the senior events in which the skaters are of a rather high-profile (ie. the better known ones to me, so prominent on the national and international stage). I will have my camera with me, but I don't know about taking videos because the quality will be quite bad.

    If you have any request on how a particular skater (regardless of the level) does, just PM me and I will try to take some notes

    Thanks Kypma - keep your eyes open for any up and coming skaters with potential too, always fun to see them getting going as well as updates on our reputable favs!

    This is also a developmental international for US, and hopefully should see some good skating in those events too.

    Thanks Siber and Kypma!

    I picked out from the Senior Pair that Eric Radford is now with Anne-Marie Giroux? I knew there was a rumor around because of Kirkland's inability to land jumps, but they never show signs of splitting, when did this happen? I would love to know how this new team work out
    I am also surprised that Velenosi and Fernandez did not split...

    For the dance,Mylène Girard and Jonathan Pelletier are the better-known pair, they teamed up last season. It was a shame that Girard and Dougherty split in a year, they were such a good match.

    Louis-Philippe Sirois landed a quad in the Challenge last year...would like to see how he develops this year...

    I think Kirkland was also getting too tall to skate pairs. They had an absolutely disastrous nationals and I think many people predicted then that they would split. Eric is a great partner and I wish him luck with Anne-Marie!

    Not much to report on today, excet that the winner in Pre-Juvenile Men's has a double lutz, and the few others I saw had double flips and loops, so the lutz wasn't totally out of place. Which leaves me wondering: if there are double Lutzes in Pre-juvenile, what separates Pre-juvenile from Juvenile and even pre-novice??

    Also, pre-juvenile dance compulsories with the Canasta tango and Baby Blues is just plain adorable

    International news - wise, Team USA in practice was looking pretty good. Especially after sitting through so many pre-novice ladies short programs.

    Probably more to report tomorrow,

    I would, Sylvia, if I could tell you more! Unfortunately, there was no list naming the skaters at practice, so all I can say is that one guy was having issues with his triple flip, one girl had a very nice 2A-2A sequence, another had very nice, tight-rotation jumps... I'll see if they have another practice tomorrow, I only found out about today's by accident and only caught the last part! I overheard one (Canadian) pre-novice girl going on about how she'd been beated by a(n American) girl who had 2A, 3S, 3T in her program, so I'd say I wouldn't be surprised to see some American skaters near the top of the result lists

    If there are any specific skaters you'd like me to take notes on, just ask away! I am volunteering, so while I might not be able to see all of the events I'll do my best. It's also easier when I know I'm looking out for specific skaters of interest.

    There weren't any American girls entered in Pre-Novice, so that doesn't seem possible.

    Three US ladies (Katarina Kulgeyko, Courtney Hicks, Cassandra Shaw) are entered in Novice, but only Juvenile and Pre-Novice events were held yesterday.
