    Thanks for the reminder, Sylvia.

    Joe, to see the list of skaters I think you have to go club by club. Use the drop-down menu where it says "Sked by Club."

    Wow, this is a huge event. There seem to be a hundred skaters or more, in skill-level groups.

    You can also pre-order a video of your favorite skater.

    For a list of skaters in each level by group, click on the link for each day in "Daily Schedules Wed Thu Fri Sat" at http://www.sk8stuff.com/utility/list...il.asp?id=2170

    Note: This is the list of registered skaters -- there are usually always scratches due to injury or other reasons. For example, I know that among the senior ladies, Erica Archambault (2003 junior champ) has withdrawn due to injury and Alex Patterson is returning from an injury and may only compete in the short program.

    Senior men looks to be an exciting event, with Ryan Jahnke, Jordan Brauninger, Rohene Ward, Parker Pennington plus Fedor Andreev and Chris Mabee from Canada!

    This has to be the most convoluted web page for figure skating' All I am looking for is the senior men and ladies entries and I haven't got a clue which club they come from.

    Sylvia whereever you got that list of men and could list some of the ladies?

    Predictions

    Although I am against predicting without any reason, I will predict Jordan Brauniger because he did so well in Jrs. last year. Maybe he will be the 2010
    Oly Champ.

    If Kimmie Meissner is listed I will also predict her because I've seen her skate last year and the news of her 8 triples is impressive. She will definitely be the one we speak a lot of at the end of Nats.

    It's not THAT hard to find. Go to

    http://www.sk8stuff.com/utility/list...il.asp?id=2170

    and click on the "daily schedules" links. Then if you click on the link for each event, you'll see the list of skaters in that event.

    I've heard that Canada's Putnam/Wirtz may have scratched from SP and FS.

    Hey, Mathman, I predicted one. This guy you will be following in the next few years. Is he eligible for US Seniors this coming Nats?

    With all those entries you mentioned, it is heartwarming to see there is no shortage of skaters coming into the fold. But, aside from family and friends is the public getting back some interest?

    Jordan Brauninger made his senior debut at Nationals last year in Atlanta and placed 10th. He had some problems landing his triple axel during Nationals, but the improvement on this jump was *very* evident at Skate Detroit. Brauninger's new techno/dance SP is a real crowd pleaser (he plans to debut his new "Pirates of the Caribbean" FS (junior length version) at his JGP event in France next month), while Ryan Jahnke debuted two *gorgeously* choreographed new programs by Tom Dickson. Rohene Ward skated quite well overall, landing the best triple axel (with regard to height, distance & flow out, IMO) in both the SP and FS and wowed the crowd with his flexibility moves and spins. It was a high quality senior men's field!

    SkateWeb has senior men's reports, among a few others, up at:

    Sylvia - That Men's event must have been a humdinger. I remember Rohene in Atlanta but not Brauniger. I must not have thought much of Brauniger then but I did with Rohene. I think if Rohene connects, he will be a force in the Men's Nats as will Brauniger.

    Ryan was so good in the QR in DC Worlds but he hasn't done as well since. He's on my "let's see" list.

    Joe, about fan interest, I don't know the attendance figure for all of the events. But the venue is fairly small (maybe 2000 capacity?), so by the time all of the relatives for several hundred skaters show up, it doesn't take much more public interest to get a full house.

    The Winter cheesefest, by comparison, featuring some of the top skaters in the world, is held at the Palace. Its capacity is about 20,000, and Michelle et. al. typically draw around 10,000-12,000, I think

    The Skate Detroit event was hardly publicized at all. The only reason I even knew about it was because of GS (Northernlite and then Sylvia posted about it). It wasn't mentioned in the sports pages, nor was there a write-up of the event afterwards.

    I am going to write a blistering letter to our Detroit Free Press skating and Olympic sports columnist, JoAnn Barnas, about it. The other Detroit paper, the News, does not cover figure skating at all, not even Nationals and Worlds. I have to go to the bookstore and buy the Toronto papers to find out anything.

    Sylvia, thanks for the link to the reports. This sentence caught my eye:

    "I was told that the parallel CoP judging panel had the results reversed in both the short and the long: Jordan would have won the short and Ryan would have won the long."

    Very interesting!
