    MF is right, the food is really good there! Gracie won't be there this year, but Hannah Miller and Mariah Bell will be. Alex Johnson has withdrawn due to recent surgery. I am trying to get a list of skaters to post. A lot of Canadian skaters will be competing. Zach and Madi and Daniel and Alex will be competing in ice dance. Pairs will be awesome!
    Rink A is to the right of rink B (just follow rink B around, then go out to the other lobby and it's to the left (on the right is the skate shop). It's not off limits. They have practices back there. It's dark and cold and only a few places to sit. I have been told there are 720 skaters that will compete.

    There are a large group of Canadian skaters at Liberty. It seems that Skate Canada is really encouraging their skaters to compete in the US this summer. I wonder whether there will be as many competitors as there usually are at the Canadian summer competitions as well?

    Judging from the entry list at BC/YT Summerskate, there has been quite an increase in the number of competitors. Some from the States, some from the East of Canada; lots of people from all over.

    I'm really surprised that the list of competitors isn't available yet....the event starts tomorrow (Tuesday). The last couple of years the list was available 2 or 3 days before the competition so I really hoped it would be out today . I know the volunteers and DSC are really busy...I would just really like to have some idea which senior ladies and men are registered.

    It was actually posted by July 11th last year but I have a feeling that they got more registrants than they expected this year and are working double time to try to get everything done. Still, it WOULD be nice to see the competitors list. I'm going to be there and would like to plan my viewing schedule.

    It is frustrating. Even the competitors don't know who is in their flights or even how many.

    bratus913, Welcome to Golden Skate! Post long & often!

    You're right. Finding out who is going to be skating at summer competitions always seems possible, but never really is.

    What happened to him? I hope it's nothing serious.

    Here are some names I've picked up over at FSU and from tweets:

    Grant Hochstein, Timothy Dolensky, Alaine Chartrand (Canada).


    Haven Denney/Frazier; Calalang/Sidhu; Zhang/Bartholomay; Kayne/O'Shea; Lawrence/Swiegers; Hawayek/Baker; Brianna de la Mora/Wilson

    I also wonder what happened to Alex Johnson....haven't seen anything about an injury.

    Last year I bought a program which helped a lot identifying skaters (no pictures though). I really hope they will have them again this year. I think it was $5 and was for sale at a booth towards the right side of the lobby near the DSC office.

    I checked with DSC and they will have programs for sale at a podium to the right of the lobby near Rink B and the DSC office. Young man I spoke with didn't know the cost but said they would have the sign up on the podium shortly and programs will be available. Since it doesn't look like a list will be available online this seems like a good investment. It can be difficult to understand the names of the competitors over the sound system - compounded by not knowing some of them at all.

    Hi there, Hoping that if anyone is there today or Wed morning, can you tell me how many Intermediate Men are in the flight? I would appreciate it! I was hoping we would know the listing of competitors by now.

    (The short is scheduled for Thurs Jul 25 9:35pm )

    Thank you!

    As did Lukas Kaugars.

    Welcome to Golden Skate Sk8DSmom. I won't get to Skate Detroit until late on Wednesday or possibly Thursday morning so hopefully someone else can help you out.

    Thanks golden411 for the additional names.

    fyi, DSC commented yesterday on its Facebook page:
    "The Detroit Skating Club doesn't typically release or pre-post entries for Skate Detroit. After the competition begins Skate Stuff does a fine job of posting this information. Entry details are available at the competition."

    That is within their rights and it IS true that they haven't typically posted the groups before.

    As for #s of skaters in events, a seasoned verteran OR a good coach can estimate how many are in a given group based on time alloted and length of program.
