2021 Autumn Classic - Pierrefonds, QC - Challenger Series event - 16-18 Sept. 2021

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

According to a post from Skate Canada regarding media accreditation: https://skatecanada.ca/2021/08/media-ac ... rnational/
The 2021 Autumn Classic International will be held in person, but due to the pandemic and health regulations, without spectators or media on site. Skate Canada looks forward to hosting media in a virtual setting for this year’s event. The event will take place from September 16-18, 2021, in Pierrefonds, Que.

It has now been announced by the French federation that Papadakis & Cizeron will not make their season debut at the Autumn Classic but will make it at the "Masters de Patinage" in France. Many will be disappointed, I'm sure.

Due to a decision by the Japanese Skating Federation to not participate in, at least, the early season Challenger events, Satoko Miyahara will withdraw from the Autumn Classic.

This is reportedly due to the quarantine requirements once skaters return to Japan.

[They have also decided not to participate in any of the Junior Grand Prix events.]

Interesting - CBC Sports online streaming is showing a schedule for the Autumn Classic! In the past a competition like this, organized by Skate Canada, would be broadcast by CTV.

Thanks everyone for joining Kevin and I for the pairs short at ACI21 I’m sorry for my extra raspy voice. I lost my voice weeks ago teaching a hockey skating skills camp and it just hasn’t come back yet
