    Thank goodness it is only the Top 5 that score towards the Game – for Ladies, Men’s and Dance, the first 7 I have picked are the only ones I have heard tell of! And in Pairs, it is even worse – it is only the first 6.

    There must have been a lot of retirements over the past few years that I never heard about!

    Just a word of warning. As there are so many that I am not familiar with, a lot of my predictions were based on PB’s. And because a lot of them do not have ISU Bios, I also looked at the results of Canadian Championships for the past few years. And I made a surprising discovery – for practically every skater that has a ISU Bio, the listed PB is not up to date. Nearly all of them had a higher score in last year’s Canadian Championships than the score that is listed on their ISU Bio as their PB.

    So, that was very interesting to find out.

    I didn’t take any risks in the Ladies or Pairs categories.

    In the Men’s category, I have taken a big risk. Let’s be blunt, any of the guys I have put as my first 7 could get onto the podium.

    Although he was beat at the GP Final, I can’t see Chan getting beat at Nationals.

    And although he has been prone to meltdowns in the past, I don't think Kevin Reynolds would have one at Nationals. That said, the pressure of competing for an Olympic slot might get to him…

    If all goes as expected, that should be 1st and 2nd sorted. So, that just leaves the final podium slot.

    Originally, I did the predictable and went with the Russian (hey, I always seem to go with the Russians!). After all, Rogozine was 3rd last year, and has the 3rd highest PB of all the men competing.

    But, I really want Jeremy Ten to get on the podium. Jeremy is a really nice guy, and showed at the Nebelhorn just what he is capable of. Plus, I felt a twinge of patriotism. You see, one of his coaches, Neil Wilson, is from my part of the world (In fact, I will be in Neil’s home town today!)

    So, I put Ten in 3rd and Rogozine in 4th. It's a risk and if it goes the other way, it will almost certainly lose me the lead I have had in the Men's category since the start of this Predictions Game. But, you gotta take a chance some time.

    You may be surprised that I put Balde in 5th place, as I have made no secret that absolutely love his style of exhibition routines. But, at the moment, I think he is a better exhibition skater than he is a competition skater.

    Onto Dance, and although I like Kharis Ralph and Asher Hill, I have taken a chance and put Madeline Edwards and Zhao Kai Pang as my 6th choice. Yes, I know they have only just moved up from Juniors. But did you see the score they got when they won Junior Nationals last year?! 145.25!!! That would have put them in 5th in Senior Nationals – nearly 4.5 points ahead of Ralph/Hill!

    So, when you take that into consideration, it is not too big a risk.

    THIS IS YOUR SEVEN-AND-A-HALF HOUR WARNING.

    You have just 7 hours and 30 minutes left to get your predictions in, i.e. until 11:10 EST (16:10 GMT)

    I'm heading out for the day shortly, so this will probably be your only warning.

    Apologies that this warning includes a half-hour - I meant to do an eight hour warning at 8:10 GMT, but was at my breakfast and forgot!

    Just finished the scoring for the ladies and the numbers were overall pretty high, ranging from 45 to 75. Congrats to sequinsgalore and nadster who scored the perfect 75, and that for the first time in any of the ladies events during the National Prediction series!

    On a bit of an adrenaline rush (ran 4 miles at the gym tonight!), so I went ahead and did Canadian men too!

    No perfect scores, but most scored in the 50-55 range.

    Wihelmina was the overall winner with 60 points.

    So here's the top 10 for Canadians.
    1.) sequinsgalore, 96skiluvr: 260
    3.) Germinirmt: 255
    4.) FSGMT, Mrs. P, Nadster: 245
    7.) Bea: 235
    8.) tulosai, guenever, Wilhelmina, YesWay: 230

    And the top scorers for MEN:
    1.) YesWay: 295
    2.) CaroLizaFan: 290
    3.) LRK, Mrs. P: 255
    5.) tulosai: 250
    6.) FSGMT,Bea: 245
    8.) sequinsgalore: 240
    9.) 96skiluvr: 225
    10.) Wilhelmina: 215

    Putting overall results in a separate thread! (ETA: More precisely, here: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...l=1#post833176)
