    Thank you all for your update/response I guess hubby and DS probably won't know until they get there (I'm won't be there *sniff* *sniff* :( ). DS is doing this comp for the 1st time -this is more mental prep for him than anything else at this point and hoping he does ok.

    It's strange because Skate Detroit always let Don Korte's site post the registered entries and groups before the start of their competition in past years. I will be working my sources at the competition this week to gather results, news, etc. and will post a link to a compilation in my blog if I am am successful.

    I'm certainly not going to argue with DSC about this issue, but I know I'm not crazy either . I've gone the last 2 years for at least part of the competition and I know I saw a list of competitors on Don Korte's website by at least the 2nd day of the competition. Sylvia always has info on results from fans that tweet or text her throughout the week. Since I have a "dumb" phone and no texting on it, I can't really help with that.

    Hope everyone who attends has a great time.

    I've typed up entries (as printed in the program book - these were all the photos that were sent to me) for Senior Men/Ladies/Pairs, Junior Men/Ladies/Pairs, and Novice Pairs: http://unseenskaters.wordpress.com/2...skate-detroit/

    I hope Alex Johnson is healing ok.

    Where do all the DSC skaters who normally train there during the week of this very large competition? Patrick Chan must have had to find ice elsewhere.

    I asked someone at the rink and 12 Intermediate Men are registered to compete.

    Thanks for compiling all the info Sylvia! Just wanted to mention that I love the site & appreciate all the work!

    Huge number of Canadian skaters. Wondering if Skate Canada is putting more emphasis on these comps to determine JP assignments.

    I'm so excited about the pairs competition. So happy to see Bobak on the list. I always wondered what happened to her after her phenomenal season with Beharry. Obviously excited to see Brubaker & Davis' debut.

    Wow, some high-level skating from the Pairs.

    Per Sylvia's Twitter:

    Moore-Towers/Moscovitch CAN 70.76
    Zhang/Bartholomay 64.41
    Donlan/Speroff 62.06
    Leng/LeDuc 61.57
    Kayne/O'Shea 61.25
    Davis/Brubaker 58.80
    Lawrence/Swiegers 54.64
    Denney/Frazier 54.49
    Calalang/Sidhu 51.88
    Purdy/Marinaro CAN 50.95
    Baga/Toth 47.51
    Brown/Furiano CAN 46.11
    Kemp/King (GBR) 43.39
    Bobak/Penasse (CAN, reteam) 41.31
    Bereswill/Reagan (new) 36.11

    Man, look at that HUGE bunch up of 60+ scores from the U.S. pairs. (and Davis/Brubaker is not too far behind 58+ is a great score for a new team). If this level of skating keeps up, .the Pairs competition at Nationals (and the battle for Olympic spots) might get interesting....

    ETA: For comparison, Scimeca/Knierim scored 65.69 at their SP exhibition at Broadmoor a few weeks back.

    ETA2: Skater Tim Dolensky was at the competition and tweeted a whole bunch of notes, which Sylvia Tweeted:

    Scores at local competitions are not comparable both for each other and hi-level (like Nationals) competitions.

    Scores may be both higher or lower. I remember Summer competition at 2012, where all the skaters had very low PCS (significantly lower than the same skaters obtained at other competitions, including Nats). Scores because of this were low.

    Yes, they are not perfectly comparable to each other and isn't a perfect indicator to Nationals.

    Still, I do still find it noteworthy that we're seeing some 60+ scores from a number of couples; not just a few. My hope is this level of skating continues.

    We usually just go to John Lindell ice arena in Royal Oak, it's about 20 minutes from DSC.

    Amazing how the last couple years there has been no depth in US Pairs skating now we've had like 5 teams so far get over 60 points in the SP so far this summer. Looks like the US Pairs depth has really been rebuilt in almost record time considering the lack of teams just last year at Nationals.
