It does look worrying @norwegianfairytale . However, on their Facebook site yesterday they posted that there will be a live stream, so it seems it's really going to happen! Still no entrees though.
Thank you, that is indeed a very good sign. I guess they are just slow with the entries. Norway are planning to send 4 skaters, 2 senior and 2 juniors. The senior ladies needs to get the TES minimum for the FS for EC. It would be nice to see the entries and also know if there is enough countries competing to count as minimum TES and PB.

Thank you @ladyjane :)

It looks like for the most disciplines there is enough entries from different countries to count as minimum TES!

A little bit worry for me. Ida Vamnes is not listed in the junior entries after all and seems to be injured. She was also originally going to Dortmund, but was not on the entries list there either. Her last competition was in Budapest Trophy a month ago and she hasn´t been competing since, not even domestically. I hope she just have to rest and doesn´t need to be out for a long time, she landed a clean 3Lz combo in her FS in Budapest Trophy and she would be in the loop for JWC, together with Mia Risa and Linnea Kilsand. However she needs the minimum, which the latter already got. When is the last chance to get JWC minimum? The Nordics Open is pretty early this year so I guess it´s still possible then.

Linnea Kilsand has got the JWC minimum I think, she got SP minimum in JGP, but the required TES for FS she got in a senior competition in Dortmund, I guess it counts all though it was a senior competition? All though, her task for this competition would probably be to get the FS minimum for EC. In Dortmund she scored 38,64 TES so she was close. I don´t know if it´s nerves or stamina, but Linnea usually don´t skate well in the FS. I hope she can figure it out because we don´t have a senior skater yet who has the minimum. Frida Berge also has the SP TES but also needs it for the FS. So this will be an important competition for the senior girls. Linnea however is also on the list for Bratislava Grand Prix, so most likely she has another chance after this. Frida Berge is going to Universiade in December, but I don´t think it counts as minimum?

I really don't know whether points gathered at the Universiade would count for the TES minimums. They do follow the ISU rules there in the sense that they work with the IJS, but I don't know whether they comply with the rules for the composition of judging panels (and the Technical Control panels).

TES scores for JW need to be met at International junior competitions. TES score for Euros and Worlds have to be met at senior competition. IMO its a lot of pressure to try for both in the same season.

I think they follow rules of judging panel as well however ISU has strict rules on qualifying comps need to be open so not only for university students and thus I dont think that will work. But Im not sure.

I´m glad there is a stream, it would be nice though if it was possible to find some sort of timetable anywhere. Looks like from advertise video that it will start on Thursday.

There is a update on the site today about the competition and it looks like it will go ahead as normal and that it will be according to the ISU regulations:

The competition results must be calculated according to the valid ISU Special Regulations Single & Pair Skating and Ice Dance, currently Rules 352 and 353.

https://www.faeg.ad/noticia/open-dandorra-2021

Also in this page there is a link to the result page. I guess they will use this site, but looks like it´s not updated yet because it´s from a previous competition.

And on the front page of the Fed's website, the results button is pointing towards this page:

:drama:

Whatever page it appears on, I hope it appears soon. I need to know if I need to arrange packed lunches for any of my kids! :drama:

(I read over a month ago that some of them were planning to come here, but I don't know if that is still the plan).

I just sent the Federation a second email.
Well, whatever you did worked. The results pages are now up. Thank you for saving the day!
