Interesting eligibility:

Quote
All skaters must reside in New Jersey for more than 30 days or be a member of a New Jersey USFS Club or the reciprocity State of New York.

Not sure why NYS is considered reciprocal, given the Empire State Games eligibility would exclude most NJ skaters:

All skaters must have a New York State affiliation in one or more of the following ways: reside in New York State, attend school in New York State, be a member of a New York State Figure Skating Club or have their primary training location in New York State.

Looks like Adult Pre-Bronze and higher, but no adult Basic Skills levels.  I'll get the word out to friends who might be interested.

Cool. I already know of several adults signing up for this, so the more, the merrier!

I don't remember the "reciprocity" language from past years. I'd thought you either had to be a member of a NJ club or living in NJ.
