There's a Dutch girl in the Juniors I've never seen before. Admittedly, I don't follow juniors all that well, but this is a real surprise! There's another in Adv Novice but I feel less surprised, as I don't follow them at all.

So we are going to find out which skaters are naughty or nice in a week.

Also, do we know if Santa has a good 3Lz?
I saw a sign earlier today encouraging folks to "Zoom with Santa" Dec 11 & 12 with a url link to sign up. Perhaps we could inquire. :biggrin:

Sorry, I pressed "Post Reply" in a panic there when the stream came on air and I saw Ice Dancers on the ice. And I thought "Drat! They're starting early!"

Then I looked at the screen and thought "They're too old to be the Cubs or Basic Novice Dancers".

It was actually the tail end of the Senior Free Dance practice.

There will now be a resurfacing, and then the competitions will begin in about 15 minutes from now.

Day 1 of the 🎅 Santa Claus Cup is about to start. And today is all about Ice Dance until this evening, when the Senior Ladies have their SP.

First up, the Cubs Pattern Dance and Basic Novice Pattern Dance 1. We have a group of 1 Cubs partnership (who I suspect are siblings), followed by 2 groups of 4 Basic Novice partnerships.

Livestream for the Cubs Pattern Dance is now on air.

Here is the link for the livestream:

And here is the live scoring:

Hope this helps

Oh. My. Goodness!!! :jaw:

The second intermediate Novice partnership (from Hungary) skated to the "Colonel Bogey March"... with French lyrics!!! 😲

I never even knew there was a French version! :drama:

EDIT: Took a while, but I found it!

Annie Cordy - "Hello Le Soleil Brille"​

Thankfully, the lyrics they were skating to seemed perfectly clean. Unlike the lyrics that normally get sung to that tune in English... :eek:

You know that awful "I'm An Albatraoz" song that Olga MAMCHENKOVA / Mark VOLKOV (RUS) are skating to for their Free Dance this season. Well, the last Intermediate Novice partnership to go (from Switzerland) was skating to another song from the same artists:

AronChupa - "Little Swing"

Well, I'm now getting worried about my sanity, because I found that I actually enjoyed it. I don't know what it was, whether it was because of the bouncy nature of the tune, or the fact that it was younger skaters that were dancing to it. But, it just worked.

Anyway, the Advanced Novice Warm-Up Group 1 just coming to an end now.

The first Advanced Novice partnership to go was also from Switzerland. And they also had a strange music choice. A really slowed down cover of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky".

Is there something strange in the water up there in the Alps?!

Anyway, there is a break to proceedings at the moment, so I take it the second partnership (from Russia) hasn't appeared.

Onto the third partnership.

I wouldn't normally do a reminder post in the middle of a segment, but with the way the resurfacings are positioned, this is actually the most appropriate place to do it.

Now we have the final group of the Advanced Novice PD1, followed by the Basic Novice PD2. We have a group of 6 Advanced Novice partnerships, followed by 2 groups of 4 Basic Novice partnerships.

Livestream for the Advanced Novice Pattern Dance 1 is now on air.

Here is the link for the livestream:

Basic Novice PD2 - http://hunskate.hu/external/mukorcsolya/2021_2022/15_SANTA/NONISU/SEG083.HTM

Hope this helps

We come back from the dinner break to the final two sets of Pattern Dances. But, I'm still eating, so I am going to pause the stream and play catch-up when I am finished. Because of this, this reminder post will deal with both the Intermediate Novice PD2 and Advanced Novice PD2. Apologies if it gets complicated.

First up, we have a group of 5 Intermediate Novice partnerships; followed by a group of 5 Advanced Novice partnerships; then a resurfacing; then another group of 5 Advanced Novice partnerships; and finally a group of 6 Advanced Novice partnerships.

Livestream for the Intermediate Novice Pattern Dance 2 is now on air.

And here is the live scoring:
Intermediate Novice PD2 - http://hunskate.hu/external/mukorcsolya/2021_2022/15_SANTA/NONISU/SEG086.HTM
Advanced Novice PD2 - http://hunskate.hu/external/mukorcsolya/2021_2022/15_SANTA/ISU/SEG064.HTM

Hope this helps
