    Given where it falls in the list of events for that day, I'd say it's a typo.

    LOL, had not noticed that.
    The previous version of the official schedule had Senior FD at 11:30 am ... so seems that the authorities responsible for publishing the latest revision forgot to change a.m. to p.m. when changing the time to 12:40.

    Preview blog post re US International Figure Skating Classic:
    http://skatingmagazineblog.com/2012/...tional-season/
    [Although it's from a USFSA website, the preview covers skaters from many countries.]

    ETA:
    Too bad that the blogger thinks Kristen is the first name of Moore-Towers.
    And the blogger fails to mention Jeremy Ten.

    I'll be blogging from the event this weekend! Hopefully, the lighting will be good so I can get lots of photos.

    Yay. That means I don't have to feel guilty if I'm too tired to post. Enjoy the trip.

    Per his post on Chris Caluza's facebook page (and per our conversation during practice the other day), Luis Hernandez has withdrawn from the SLC B, because of two fractured toes. YIKES!

    This is not surprising. It is a very SMALL club (I believe the president told me it's ~ 50 total members when I talked to him before). They hosted US Adult Nationals in 2011 and got lots of outside help from other Olympic sport groups in SLC for their volunteer base (and I believe they had the "volunteer list" from 2002 Olympics, too, that they contacted for help). Considering this begins on Wednesday and their skaters are in school, it will be hard to get them there to work it. I bet they have Saturday's and Sunday's work schedule full (and likely even Friday evening).

    Sorry if my previous post about volunteers was unwarranted. Glad that the club has plenty of outside resources too.

    To redeem myself (I hope), here are:
    - a competition preview (mostly about ice dance, with a brief mention of pairs) from IN
    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    - USFSA's competition notes re Team USA

    Not unwarranted, I know how hard it is to organize volunteers for this kind of thing, especially on week days, and I wanted people to understand the circumstances as well! I am sure that at some level "volunteering is mandatory, that is all...." is happening.

    Lynn Rutherford ‏@LynnRutherford even tweeted this yesterday:
    I am in SLC for the skating competition this week, so if anyone has any questions/requests, let me know.
    3:35 PM - 12 Sep 12

    ETA:
    Nice story (by Mimi Whetstone) about skating fans who have made the pilgrimage to the SLC competitions:

    First flight of the SD is over

    Editing this now that the SD is over

    1 Chock & Bates 62.89
    Igor & Marina...Klimova that is, in the Kiss & Cry
    Chock in a terrible outfit
    Very nice circus program-kept the story going through out

    2 Kriengkrairut/Giuletti Schmitt 56.49
    Ring of Fire & Elvis I Can't Help Falling in Love With You
    Nice Yankee Polka-experience counts. Ring of Fire works well for it for timing purposes.
    One of their unique lifts.
    Twizzles could be better, and the ending was stumby with Logan putting a hand down-deduction?
    Still a great outing for them to be in second!

    3 Gilles & Poirier 55.98
    Death of a thousand dance cuts from Mary Poppins.(Feed the Birds, Spoonful of Sugar, ChimChim Charee It's no wonder the Yankee did not gel. Paul is still noticeably a lot better than Piper, and both looked nervous. Paul stumbled near the beginning of the step sequences, and I'll bet they suffered on the level there. The ending lift -they got through it but it wasn't smooth yet, and will no doubt improve in later outings.
    Barely ahead of Paul & Islam

    4 Paul & Islam 55.86
    The beat of MiLord didn't help them in the Yankee Polka
    Twizzles kind of spinny for the second & third set.
    Otherwise, very well done.

    5 Heekin-Canedy & Dun UKR
    I think the music was from Titanic, a waltz, and the Irish jig music for the Yankee Polka. A decent performance. Second set of twizzles was out of synch.

    6 Jones & Sharpe GBR 43.17
    How I don't know-I expect they got more credit for the Yankee than the teams below them in the scoring. Jones fell, too. They skated to Edelweiss and Polka'd to Lonely Goatherd.

    7 O'Brien & Merriman AUS 42.97
    Cute as bugs to Cotton Eyed Joe and Old Country Waltz. The performance looked better to me than this score would indicate.

    8 Cannuscio & McManus 42.10
    This program hasn't gelled yet. The Yankee Polka wasn't top notch and although I'm cautious about this with internet streaming, I though their timing was all over the place on the polka, and the twizzles were messy. The music for the polka did them no favors.

    9 Plutowska & Gerber POL 41.99
    If Gerber hadn't had trouble with his foot in the twizzles, they'd be ahead of Cannuscio/McManus at this point. He is not as good as Plutowska. Igor & Klimova in the KnC

    Thanks, Doris!
    Funny thing is that at first US Figure Skating sent an inaccurate tweet (that they later replaced) saying that C/B were in first place -- and that Lynn and Logan were in third.
    But I knew better because I had seen your thorough post. [I do not subscribe to IN, so don't have firsthand knowledge.]

    IN also is posting photos from SLC:
    - Backstage gallery (only five photos so far; #3 is Shpilband + Judy Blumberg in K and C with novice dancers)
    - Junior men's short at U.S. Challenge Skate

    And BTW, this is a preview story from yesterday about the Senior Dance competition:
