    But technically, wouldn't they have to go to Sectionals first? (or maybe even Regionals, LOL).

    Well there aren't a lot of competitive dance teams in the US (which probably explains why the USFS was so quick to give L&T a spot in Skate America) so I don't think that L&T would have to go through the qualifying stages since they have been National champions. Plus with all the team break ups, it's hard to imagine who else the USFS would give an invitation to.

    Incorrect. Even if they did SA, they would have to do sectionals.

    Getting a GP assignment doesn't mean a skater won't have to do Sectionals. Angela Nikodinov, Emily Hughes, Alissa Czisny, Ryan Jahnke, Dennis Phan and Amber Corwin each got an assignment, and since none of them finished in the top 5 at 2005 Nationals, they all have to do Sectionals to qualify for 2006 Nationals.

    All 3 U.S. Sectionals in November 2005 are the same week as the GP in France (Nov. 17-20), which means that competition byes to 2006 Nationals will be given to the U.S. skaters assigned to the France and Russia (Nov. 24-27) Grand Prix events. Skaters that don't already have byes for having placed in the top 5 in senior at 2005 Nationals and are eligible for a competition bye to 2006 Nationals are:
    Emily Hughes-Easterns, Castile/Okolski-Mids & Galler-Rabinowitz/Mitchell-Easterns (Russia) and Matthews/Zavozin-Easterns (France).
    [Edited to add on 5/21 that M/Z already qualify for a bye to '06 Nationals based on their 5th place senior finish at '05 Nationals.]

    The China GP (Nov. 3-6), is TWO weeks before France, so Amber Corwin and Ryan Jahnke may or may not get byes (ditto Vise/Kole at NHK, Dec. 1-4) -- we'll have to wait and see.

    This would aleviate a LOT of stress for me if those two skaters got byes this fall. I had forgotten they would have to do Regionals/Sectionals again this year! EEK!

    BTW, Doggygirl was asking in the cafe if someone could help her translate something into German.

    Thanks, MM. Started a grad school program that has been time consuming! Looked for the cafe thread but couldn't find it. Still in need of translation? Although, my German is pretty rusty!

    No, Tdnuva (native speaker) helped out.

    Well, it's going to be an exciting Olympic fall, so I hope you'll have time for a post now and then.

    Gah, the USFS should have made sure of everything before putting L&T on the list. They got my hopes up.

    You're lucky if you get to go! That's the one that will really tell the story, in ladies. If everyone shows up, it will be Arakawa, Slutskaya and Kwan, with Mao Asada thrown in for good measure.

    I don't think there is a big rush to get tickets for the event itself. I doubt that it will be sold out.

    Mathman, tickets definitely won't get sold out, the CoC and GPF last year ended up being sit where ever you want there were so few people, so I got great seats even though I bought the cheapest tickets (and for one day my rink gave me free tickets). Scalpers were selling tickets for as low a 10 kuai (just over US$1). The exhibition was pretty full though.
