    Sandra Jean Rucker - Group B; Bebe Liang - Group C. Why?


    I guess some new dance teams have to prove themselves before they get an envelope.

    Reserve

    What's the reserve team and why are Loren Galler-Rabinowitz & David Mitchell all the way down there?

    Stupid question....

    What's in the "Envelopes??" Money for training? I guess I've never followed this part of the off-season before.

    Envelopes determine the levels of funding for skaters for the season; they do not necessarily correlate to specific international assignments. All U.S. Junior champions (Sandra Jean Rucker, Jeremy Abbott, Mariel Miller/Rockne Brubaker, Trina Pratt/Todd Gilles) automatically qualify for Team B.

    There are specific envelope criteria for A, B, C and Reserve, and it is primarily based on international medals won and the most recent Nationals placements at the Novice/Junior/Senior levels. In the case of Galler-Rabinowitz/Mitchell, they were not able to compete at 2005 Nationals due to his injury. Bebe Liang is in C due to her 5th place finish at 2005 Nationals.

    Very interesting. So, who has the edge, the B team with Hughes, Kirk, Meissner and Rucker, or the C team with Corwin, Liang, Nikodinov and Csizny?

    About David Mitchell's injury, I think he had an operation on his shoulder in the off season. So they may not be ready early in the season.

    I can understand Matthews/Zavozin and Pratt/Gilles being in the B envelope. M/Z are the JGPF and Junior World champions and P/G are the National Champions-Juniors. But what is the reason for Stiegler/Magerovski being in B?

    The skaters in Envelope A are the ones who just so happen to have toured with COI, aren't they? Why do they also get the most money?

    One of last year's criteria for Team B was: "Places 2-4 in senior-level events at the U.S. Championships" and S/M were 4th at 2005 Nationals.

    Because CoI and USFSA have the same criteria for selecting who's the best skater out there.

    Wouldn't you say these skaters have EARNED their spots? While we all might not agree on the criteria (and I certainly haven't read all the criteria) I don't know that any skater is simply GIVEN a COI deal, or USFSA funding without earning it.
