Minto Summer Skate 2019 - July 25-28

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.

I feel sorry that I am not still living in Ottawa and volunteering at the event. It was such a great time. It was a real experience posting the results for the novice girls. What reactions! Beautiful!

I'll be volunteering at the entrance desk, as usual. I'll be there for 3 of the 4 days.

I believe their actual first competitive appearance will be at the Quebec summer skate which, I think, happens before Minto. I too am very much looking forward to seeing them. I hope my volunteer shifts don't interfere with seeing them at Minto!

Actually, my memory was faulty - the Quebec Summer Championships is Aug. 8-11, 2019 in Pierrefonds. The website: https://patinage.qc.ca/championnats-quebecois-dete/

Thanks. I can't seem to find videos there, but my French isn't that great. I speak it some.

I'm trying to remember the history of this competition. This is the same one that used to be in Thornhill? I think they moved it to Ottawa last year or the year before? I did manage to go to Thornhill twice. I found it tricky to attend because of lack of accommodation and having to stay in Markham & not being a "Toronto driver", so I didn't go more than just the twice. I enjoyed it though, when I did go. Well, this will be very good for you Elizabeth! Someday I'll try to get there.

NO - the Minto Summer Skate has been going on here, hosted by the Minto Skating Club, for many, many years. It is only in the past 3 (?) years that it has been officially part of the new Skate Ontario sectional series of qualifying events, making it a larger event that had to be moved to a different location here as the numbers could no longer be accommodated at the Minto site.

The Thornhill competition was something completely different :)

Here's the schedule for the Skate Ontario sectional series: https://skateontario.org/wp-content/upl ... R_2019.pdf
