    12 Isabella CANNUSCIO / Ian LORELLO USA
    13 Lynn KRIENGKRAIRUT / Logan GIULIETTI-SCHMITT USA
    So glad Lynn & Logan are getting an event, given that they couldn't make it to Nebelhorn!

    Yes, but I think they needed the qualifying score, perhaps, to be eligible to skate a Nebelhorn?

    I guess you meant Lake Placid competition? Yes, they did not compete at LP.

    No, I meant that I thought they were going to need a qualifying competition to be able to skate at NHK or any other GP. I have no clue why my wooly thoughts had my fingers type Nebelhorn there.

    In fact, LP does not qualify anyone for anything, other than as a monitoring event for USFS.

    And they are scheduled for Barrie this weekend. I guess they are getting some feedback before heading to the really big leagues. Should be an interesting event preview with Paul/Islam and Gilles/Poirier, Lynn/Logan, and others...

    AFAIK, they don't need any competition since they're 25th on SB list, 130. The minimum scores to qualify to compete GP is 111, I think.

    Just noted that Stephan Carriere will be coming to Graz to compete in the Ice Challenge competition. Saw him compete at the Nebelhorn Trophy competition and remember his ISU performances when he performed here a few years ago. I expect he will add some interest to the event this year.

    if caroline skates clean here and wins gold, she could still be in the run for a GP next year if she earns a score above 145 IMO. The only lady to theoretically challenge her here would be either Lena Marrocco or Dasa Grm. I don't really know the other competitors.

    For the men, Stephen Carriere seems like a shoe in and the only competitor to likely surpass 200. Misha Ge is probably going to be silver.

    Hausch/Wende need to redeem themselves after a disappointing SA. Going on a limb and saying that Russians are pretty good. Who are Andrea POAPST / Chris KNIERIM? They're representing for the US but i've never seen their name in nationals

    don't know much about dance but looking forward to a showdown between C/L and K/G-S.

    Knierim is one of the permanent male cast members in Colorado Springs. This year's partner is Poapst.

    I first became aware of him when he was skating with Brynn Carman.

    In theory, Caroline could still get a 2nd invitation this year, but she would really have to tear up the ice in Austria. Just winning won't be enough.
