    ISA and the high performance director have organised and decided to hold the event not ISU.

    The event will be used to decide which of the Australian skaters will go to Neblehorn!

    Lucky!

    My only wish is that Canterbury were closer to the train station. It's a nice walk...in the daytime. No way could you get me to do it after dark.

    428 bus is also a good option if you are going via the city

    I figure I'll stay not too far away and drive every day.

    Driving is probably easiest. The 428 used to be like clockwork but this year it's gone haywire (buses missing on live data etc which confuses me, because how do you lose a bus?!) and the 445 isn't exactly the most reliable ...

    Parking, however, is generally pretty easy in Canterbury, so your plan sounds pretty solid. And christinaskater I didn't realise you were in Hurstville! That's so close! Ahh the world of goldenskate members

    I've only been to the Canterbury Ice Rink twice, but IIRC there was plenty of parking, plus a long straight road in front of it where maybe you could park on the side, so I'm hopeful that it won't be difficult. I'm very excited!

    (But before this there is a trip to the Penrith Ice Palace to make...I've never been there before, so if I post forlornly next weekend about being lost in Sydney, you'll all know what happened! )

    I wonder who is going to show up? Hopefully the fact that it is in Sydney with its iconic landmarks that some big names would come! Also, I wonder who the ISA chooses to rep Australia?

    karne, two FYIs (also included in my previous post):
    The Skate DownUnder announcement says that each ISU member may enter up to four competitors per category.
    And the event will have Novice Men and Ladies, but no Novice Pairs.

    Thx for all your information above. Please keep us posted as you hear more about international entrants too (whether Mr. Brown or others).

    (BTW, I started a Skate DownUnder thread in the Competitions forum.

    Australia can send as many skaters as they want to Skate Downunder as long as they have met the ISA benchmark.

    Other countries may only send 4

    I am sorry to say this because you are clearly excited to have a new comp going, but I worry that the comp wont get many skaters from other countries because it is very early in the season and because Australia is so far away!
