    Kevin van der Perren stated to the Belgian press that he was going to compete this season; it's once more said to be his last season, but I know that he's also expressed a wish in the past to skate at Euros 2012 when they are held in the UK (because of Jenna).

    Question: is anyone attending this event? I've been looking into it, I'm not yet sure at all since the train appears to be pretty expensive in Germany. I haven't even found a website where you can buy event tickets, does anyone know?? Also; what hotel are the athletes usually staying in? Any travel tips at all are welcome! Thanks

    You can buy tickets on site when you arrive. They won't sell out--even last year, when Stephan Lambiel and Savchenko and Szolkowy competed, there were plenty of seats available.

    Oberstdorf has a few hotels and many vacation apartments (ferienwohnungen). The apartments are quite reasonably priced, and you can save a lot of money by preparing your own dinners.

    If you prefer to eat out, but inexpensively, and enjoy seafood, there is a Nordsee restaurant in town. If you are a nonsmoker, this restaurant chain has the advantage of being completely smoke-free.

    The lift to the top of the Nebelhorn is just a two-minute walk from the rink, and definitely worth going up on a clear day. If you choose to go hiking up there, you may be able to spot some chamoix (gemsen).

    In Bavarian all restaurants are smoke-free, not only the Nordsee in Oberstdorf.

    As of right now there is no Belgian anywhere near Van Der Perrin in skill level. That could change but right now he has a free ride to Euros and Worlds.

    The Reeds' participation here is still written on the JSF site as well as on their official blog.
    I know they aren't on the event site entry list, but still ...

    According to the Reeds' blog, on Sept 9th Cathy hit her knee very hard twice while practicing and had to put ice bags all day. This kept her from practicing a few days.

    If the withdraw was before 9th, then this is not the reason.
    In that case just the delay of preparing their free dance.

    ETA: Whichever the case, JSF now confirmed Reeds' withdrawal. Too bad.

    The JSF official site says just "entries of Murakami and Reeds are canceled."

    Murakami is in the entry list of Chubu regionals scheduled one week after Nebelhorn. After withdrawral of Kostner of Wagner, they may have decided this event doesn't worth long trips (just my speculation).

    Ooops I'm sorry 9th was the date of the blog entry Japanese standard time. Also, Kinoshita Group translates Reeds' English into Japanese.

    So Cathy's injury should be on 8th.
