    Nathalie Weinzierl ( she captured my attention at Nebelhorn), Haruka Imai, Nikol Gosviiani, Polina K, Joshi&Viktoria, Natalia Popova and the one I'll be rooting to win, Christina Gao (and hopefully Nikol in second, and Viktoria or Haruka in third), in Ladies;
    Martyusheva&Rogonov and curious to see the american young pairs especially Alex&Chris (they made quite an impression last season), in Pairs;
    Anna& Luca being the fav, then I was impressed at Nebelhorn by the hungarian pair Dora and Balasz and thought the judges underscored them (though I am not so familiar with the ice dancing rules), Nelli&Alexander, in Ice Dance.

    I hope there will be a live stream.
    Well, you might should pay that money to the ISU :D

    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!

    I should make an ammendment. Europe is still on Daylight Savings Time, so it is actually 1:30pm CEST (GMT+2). But, most people do not distinguish between the two names and just say CET for handiness, even though it is incorrect. (We in the UK do the same with CEST, which is strange, as we always distinguish between GMT and BST... )

    Now, my Slovak isn't the best (in fact, it's non-existant!), but when I went to that page this morning, I couldn't find any mention of any skating coming up. In fact, there wasn't anything listed for 3rd October at all!

    So, I don't know what's happening.

    I would dearly love to see it, so that I can support some of the skaters I like - especially, of course, reigning Ladies champion Jenna McCorkell (well, she's from 40 miles up the road from me!), and also Polina K (she badly needs to remind everybody why I have so much faith in her!)

    Although, I would dearly love to see the Finlandia too (Come on Liza!!! And Akiko!!!)

    And the Japan Open (Come on Irina!!! And Adelina!!! And Mao!!!)

    Why, oh why, did they schedule all these things at the same time???!!!

    Krátky program is what you need to look for. It means short program, while krátky tanec is short dance and voľná jazda is like correctly translated "long play", which refers to the long program)

    I hope I could help you.

    Sorry to have worried everybody. They have now added the listings for first couple of days of the Ondrej Nepela to http://live.huste.tv/intro

    And, if you change the drop-down menu (which I hadn't seen - oops! ) to "Október 2013", you can find the full listings!

    I have copied the times for each skating broadcast below, but have kept them in Slovak to make it easier for you to find them in the listings.


    Štvrtok 3. Október 2013

    13:30 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Ženy - krátky program (Ladies short)
    17:30 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Muži - krátky program (Men's short)
    21:00 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Šport. dvojice -kr.prog. (Pairs Short)

    Piatok 4. Október 2013

    14:00 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Tanečné páry - kr. tanec (Short Dance)
    16:00 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Šport. dvojice - voľná jazda (Pairs Free)
    17:30 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Ženy - voľná jazda (Ladies Free)
    21:30 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Víťazná ceremónia (Medal Ceremony)

    Sobota 5. Október 2013

    13:30 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Tanečné páry - voľný tanec (Free Dance)
    16:00 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Muži - voľná jazda (Men's Free)
    19:30 Ondrej Nepela Trophy Víťazná ceremónia (Medal Ceremony)


    And, to add to our Slovak vocabulary, "Krasokorčuľovanie" is figure skating!

    I think I'll sign off with the only Slovak word I knew before today:

    Sbohem (Goodbye)

    (1) I have updated post #1 on Page 1 of this thread with the links for entry lists and for live streaming ... for handy reference (at least I hope).
    I also have made note there of CL_fan's posts about the time zones and about the streaming schedule.

    (2) Request to CL_fan or anyone else:
    I have not been following any changes to the entry lists since they were announced.
    If the PDF listing is not being kept up to date by Nepela officials, please let me know (and I will remove it from post #1).

    (3) Many thanks to CL_fan for all the information.

    I hope Christina wins this. I really like her programs and I want her to make a statement here for her Olympic hopes. Then I want Nikol in second, I wouldn't mind her winning but I think Christina needs it more. And in third Haruka or Viktoria. And good luck to the other ladies, I think we will see very good skates from everyone. I am curious to see how Natalia Popova is doing this year, she replaced Kiira in both her GP.
    I am having butterflies in my stomach just thinking about Tomas skating here. I wish he could win, it would be good for his self esteem. And go Mura, I want to see as many gorgeous triple axels as you are allowed to do. And a quad.
    What happened with the pairs, I thought there were more...
    With Anna and Luca out, I am waiting to see what Ekaterina P and Jonathan are bringing this year. And of course, Nelli&Alexander. I hope they come with something original after their crazy program of last year

    There's Julia Sebestyen's name on the list of judges for men.

    Assistant Technical Specialist Ms. Julia SEBESTYEN ISU
    I don't think it's a different person with a same name.
