Doris brought this up on another thread that to gain points in World Standings for the ISU, getting some points through "B" Comps will be a big help. But are those "B" Comps are not spread out among the Globe, and those that are (few) are in countries faaar apart.
Which of the following are ISU sanctioned?
Those Canadian small comps? any "B" rating or not? I can't see European skaters flying to Toronto to skate in a "B" comp.
Anything "B" in the US? MidAtlantics? Detroit? Liberty? Colorado?, Sun Valley, California? Non american skaters may use these since they train in the US.
I think there is the Japan Open. Is it a "B" comp? No Korea or Thailand.
Anyway, How fair is this for ALL skaters, especially non-European skaters who have to travel enough just for the 4CCs?
And bear in mind all Judging Panels are not Equal!!!
