    It was interesting to hear about Alissa not being offered a spot.

    I'm always amazed at how soon after Nationals this competition is. It's next week! That's crazy! I hope the US skaters will be able to manage these back-to-back competitions, especially since Nationals is so particularly emotional and stressful. Why doesn't the USFSA have them a week earlier? Is it because it would overlap with the Canadian Nats?

    Better to overlap with Can Nat'l then to overlap with Euro's like they did this year. I suppose the fact is in the US makes it easier, but it does seem like more time for US skaters to regroup would be good. Should be an excellent competition - especially in Men's and Dance. Podiums here could be the same as for Worlds.

    I think they've overlapped with Euros I think for as long as I've been watching the sport (since 2007). Very busy couple of days for us fans This year it's true that there is no major travel and jet lag involved for the US skaters.

    I haven't watched 4CC in years, but I'm excited about it this year! Hopefully the time difference won't prevent me from watching it all.

    I'm not sure, either. Maybe some of the people who work behind the scenes on Canadian Nationals are the same as those for US Nationals? Schedule conflicts?

    Either way, I hope they're ready for the elevation change in Colorado Springs. It's 6,000+ feet above sea level, so their cardio training needs to be high. It will likely affect all of the skaters.

    I saw Ashley post on twitter/facebook that she was beginning altitude training after her two days off. I was like 'oh right... altitude... probably even worse than jet lag!'!

    and on that note...Patrick will definitely clobber the men's field even if he falls 4 times

    (this is kind of meant as a joke as I enjoy watching Patrick and when he's on, he's GREAT...BUT I just don't get it when he falls (how JW feels)...nonetheless, I believe he can be beat (Jeremy thinks so too). So let's hope for a good and fair competition)

    Yes, because Chan is the only skater to score higher PCS for a skate with multiple falls than a clean one.

    I still don't know what they will do with Rachael's mural.

    From the text and video clip, it almost sounds like it didn't matter if Rachael competes or not. Maybe they will just leave it up.

    It may be funny to you. But the constant exaggeration of Chan's falls spreading all over the threads on this forum is getting tiresome and pathetic.

    Could it be that Alissa turned the spot down? Last year, 4 continents didn't go so well for her and it does come so close to nationals...

    Caroline is going to 4CC! Yey!! So nice that the season isn't over for her.
