    Heh, I'd love to go to that too, but I'm on the opposite end of the country. I'm debating whether to go to Skate Canada, as Laval is much closer to where I live.

    10? Of 15? Wow. Sad to see some of those splits. Carnage is a good word choice...any known reasons why? Is this going to be a mix and match season? Or have some skaters retired from competition?

    Last time we had ice dance carnage it was blamed on Tessa and Scott's return. This time can we blame it on their retirement?

    Elliott Graham and Parker Brown retired. Tommy Tang retired for school. Claudio Pietrantonio is aging out of juniors and Alicia wants to continue as a junior because she's only 15. Iirc Chubb/Gunther's coaches told them this was the furthest they could take them together as a team. McCue/Clemente had worse than expected results after their last summer competition. Stairs/Royers' split was likely based on the fact that they missed junior Worlds and got beaten in scores internationally by three other Canadian teams.

    Hey guys, Kaetlyn Osmond will finally be back on home soil today. A big celebration at St.Johns’s airport to welcome her home and week of Ice Shows throughout Newfoundland and benefits to give back to her community. A lot of excited little figure skaters waiting to greet her.....🙂

    Yes millie, she's in YYT by dinner and here's the agenda http://www.southerngazette.ca/news/b...ystown-201294/

    Jig's Dinner with salt pork and peas pudding everyone, complete with a Figgy Duff! Now that's home cooking, if skating ever had one!

    We'll have to wait and see how many new teams we end up with. We already have Galiyanova/Lochhead. Olivia McIsaac, Alicia Fabbri, Claudio Pietrantonio and Lee Royer were all on IPS and aren't anymore, so they may have new partners. Though I believe Pietrantonio said on his profile that he also has Italian citizenship, so if he does we don't know if it's for Canada. Someone on another forum said both he and Fabbri have new partners.

    Jason Chan is on IPS looking for a senior partner, and he's at Gadbois now. He lists Benjamin Brisebois as one of his many coaches.

    Kaitlyn Chubb and Jade McCue are both looking for junior partners on IPS.

    Elliot Graham, Parker Brown, and Tommy Tang retired.

    All in all, of the twenty people involved in the splits, we have 3 retiring, 2 in a new partnership, 3 currently on IPS, and 4 who were on IPS. That leaves 8 who we don't know what their plans are: Ashlynne Stairs, Valerie Taillefer, Olivia Han, Keelee Gingrich, Alex Gunther and Gabriel Clemente.

    ETA: Keelee Gringrich also retired.

    I think Keelee Gringrich had surgery recently (compartment syndrome if I recall correctly).
    I'm pretty sure these skaters are done skating: Olivia Han, Alex Gunther

    I forgot to mention Keelee also announced her retirement. She developed compartment syndrome. Her retirement and surgery posts are here:

    It's a shame because Gingrich/Brown had some interesting programs. They just took some really unfortunate falls throughout their short time together.

    I think ice dance coaches should also be actively looking for partners with their students. Carol Lane is good at this - she's brought over some Brits last season.

    Well okay. I got an invite in Halifax to the Poje home..., and you thought you were family? You still have sooo much to learn my Grasshopper friend! It's not time for you to leave. Practice that pebble snatch thingy, just a bit more.

    It's the post-season, but Kaetlyn Osmond can't stop, won't stop

    She's getting a road named after her!

    I can't wait for the GPF! We bought our tickets the day they came out

    I'm super excited for Gilles/Poirier to start being on podiums... they are so good and I think they finally have final group PCS recognition after the James Bond program at the Olympics.

    Congratulations to Kaetlyn - getting a road named after you must be such a weird surreal feeling! She looks so cute in the press photo with Liam!
