This looks interesting and they have classes if you don't want to compete.

Interesting concept! 

Only 8th test and former World competitors?

Wow. That is great.

Kind of the opposite of our "All Figures" competition here in Portland where any skater, regardless of level was welcome to compete any figure they wanted.

Also interesting that the judges will judge the patch and not watch the skaters perform the figures (and stand on the ice right next to you!) like they did in the past.

I will be interested to see how this will turn out.

Not planning to go however.
