Other Canadian competitions (Minto, Prairie Skate, Wild Rose, etc)
There's several Canadian competitions coming up which perhaps don't need their own thread but certainly should be mentioned.
Firstly, Minto Summer Skate August 2-5. The roster for the competition has been published, as well as the schedule.
Other competitions that should be posting their flight lists soon are:
1. Wild Rose in Leduc, Alberta, August 3-5. Cutoff date for registration was July 13th.
2. Prairie Skate in Moose Jaw, Sasikatchewan, August 10-12. Cutoff for registration is today.
3. Summer Sizzle in Waterloo, Ontario, August 10-12. Cutoff for registration was July 10th.
Skaters registered at Minto include:
1, In junior women, Julianne Seguin (junior bronze medallist last season) and Alaine Chartrand (9th in seniors at 2012 Canadians, skating junior here).
2. In junior men, Nicolas Beaudoin (9th in junior at 2012 Canadians).
3. In senior women, Alaine Chartrand again (yes, she's listed in both junior and senior), Roxanne Cournoyer (4th at 2012 Canadians in junior) and Eri Nishimura (a former Canadian junior champion).
4. In senior men, Charles Dion (12th at 2012 Canadians), Maxime-Billy Fortin (10th at 2012 Canadians), Nam Nguyen (7th at 2012 Canadians in senior, but eligible for JGP this season) and Paolo Bonifacio Parkinson (previously known as Paul Parkinson; he represents Italy internationally).
5. In junior dance, there are ten dance teams, which I think is down a bit from last season. Teams include Poulin/Servant (2012 Canadian junior champions), Bent/MacKeen (4th at 2012 Canadians), Collins/Seymour (2012 Canadian novice champions), Desveaux/Rezgulajevs (2012 Canadian novice silver medallists) and Glavine/Hough (2012 Canadian novice bronze medallists).
There are only two senior dance teams, however.

geoskate, thanks for the info!
Flights and schedule have been posted for the Wild Rose competition which will take place in Leduc, Alberta on August 3-5.
The most notable skater registered is Kaetlyn Osmond in senior women.
And for the first time....this year the events at Wildrose will be live streamed (on the Sobey's arena) which means we'll get to see Kaetlyn's short program! Yeah!
How will we access that on the internet? Is that through Skatebuzz?
