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!

Any word if they are going to be doing Live Streaming in one or both rinks?

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

Thanks for all the info. So far I'm having trouble with the streams cutting in and out but hopefully I'll be able to watch later.

The streams were fine when I was watching. I'm off to the rink shortly.

Have fun! Yes, it's fine now for me. Perhaps I just needed to do a restart. I'll be watching the HEO rink most of the time.

I wasn't able to watch any of the pairs stream today. Are they being archived anywhere?

It does not appear that Skate Ontario is archiving any of the streams :(

There are 3 rinks in use and only 2 live streams. All of this despite the addition of a $5 "livestream fee" on each skater registration :(

Quite a few withdrawals in all categories from this first competition of the season, including Lubov & Charlie as well as Gabby Daleman. The latter is still suffering from some ill effects of a concussion suffered in April, according to a conversation I had with her mother. Her brother Zach and his new partner made their debut in junior pairs.

Camille Ruest and Drew Wolfe skated their SP yesterday but he told me that they were returning home last night and would not be skating their FP as she is still recovering from surgery a couple of months ago.

You will find some "captured" pairs (mainly junior) here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRn-Yb ... j5Q/videos

Some other Minto videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLL3jH ... kuHZx60yzA

You will find some Minto videos from yesterday and today here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRn-Yb ... pb325Blj5Q

You might want to look especially at Ekatarina Kurakova (POL) (age 17) who is training at the Cricket Club - her SP and FS are both available on the channel above.

Thanks for the info.

Yes, I was quite disappointed that the Jr. Men's FS was not streamed because it was in the "milk rink". It seems to me that at least all junior and senior events should be streamed and perhaps the novice as well. Not only is the skill better, but the older or more experienced skaters probably can handle the idea of live streaming better. Now, I understand not being able to show all the women with their many flights. Interesting, but I found the skill among the pre-novice men better than the novice for some reason. I think we have some very good talent moving up into the novice level in that discipline. I did watch some of the women & pairs, but as the men's discipline has always been my favourite, I tend to concentrate on that when time is limited and I have other things to do. I am very sorry to hear of Gabby's concussion...man oh man what next for the poor girl. :(
