About a week ago Skate for Hope posted a picture of the elite skaters participating in this years show. I wasn't able to read some of the names so I contacted Carolyn and got confirmation that Emily Samuelson :eek:: will be participating in this years show! She will be skating solo but I expect she will do group numbers and perhaps something with Lee Harris.

Also, I am delighted to learn that Caitlin Yankowskas and Hamish Gaman (her new pairs partner) will be participating also. Caitlin and Hamish are competing for Great Britain and are training at the Skate Club of Boston with Bobby Martin. It will be nice to see Caitlin again.

Looking forward to seeing the show!

Many of the participants are from families who have lost someone to cancer and so participating in this show each year has become significant to many of them.

Gilles & Poirier have been signed up for a while to participate. They were supposed to skate there last year, but because of Paul's ankle injury, only Piper was able to do so. Some of the group numbers were changed so that she could skate with Max Aaron instead.

Here's the latest info on participants listed by Skate For Hope:
