Problem is, if I dont have access to the ice rink with a power supply for the Laptop etc. then I cant really report about it sadly. :(
It worked fine all those years without an accreditation, but at Nebelhorn this year a lot of things changed and we all can only hope that the ISU might rethink their decisions again, at least for those that want to support the sport and tell their friends and the whole world about it. I must admit though, I didnt apply for an accreditation in time - so the blame is on me too, but as I said we never needed one in such an urgency like this year to do our job :(
I fully understand why the ISU does it though, but I hope there is a way around it as there are a few helping hands that did report about Nebelhorn every year -voluntarly and couldnt do it this year sadly :(
I saw you mentioned Nathalie, yes she is a great person and has a very funny way of doing her Exhibition Skates. I can highly recommend to check her Exhibition Skate from last years Nebelhorn. Tatjana did record it and put it on YT, here the link.
I will try very hard at the NRW Trophy, but I cant guarentee anything, it all depends on the ISU - I am more than willing to give my time and money to bring the news to you, but its not a decision I have to make, but the ISU.
I agree about Dora and Balasz, great pair
Funny that you mentioned Tomas Verner, he was at Oberstdorf today!
