NATIONAL SHOWCASE UPDATE – JULY 20, 2014. SCHEDULE NEWS!

Hello Skaters and Coaches,

The extraordinarily large number of entries to National Showcase 2014 (413 skaters, over 600 starts) has presented a scheduling challenge. This message is to alert you that the referee has found it necessary to begin the competition on the evening of Thursday, August 7 and it will go from 7 pm – 10 pm on that evening.

Nearly all the reserved practice ice will still be held on Thursday between the hours of 7 am and 6:30 pm. The exceptions are the exclusive sessions for the mini-production and production ensembles, and the unofficial (non-spotlight) sessions. These will be held in the early mornings prior to the start of the competition on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The ensembles will practice on the morning of the days they will compete. Unfortunately, there will be no additional practice ice available at Pickwick Ice Arena.

Please don’t call with questions about the schedule. As registrar, I have not seen the schedule myself yet, and I will not have answers for you. We hope to have the schedules published within the next couple of days. Please understand that everyone involved has been working dayand night to put together the schedule.

We appreciate your continued cooperation and patience while everything is being checked, checked again, and then finalized.

Sincerely,
Jan SooHoo, Registrar
Los Angeles Figure Skating Club

A BIG congratulations to Darian Weiss (LAFSC) who won this year’s Funakoshi Trophy! Great job Darian. Your creativity abounds!
