- Get a refund (The sensible choice)
- Skate as the only competitor (basically it becomes an exhibition)
- Skate "up" or skate "down" to a level where there is another competitor as allowed by USFSA. (I am already skating "up" from my standing as a Pre-Bronze to the Bronze level... so skating up isn't an option. Skating down I am sure there are no other competitors either)
And later that day...... I had my blades sharpened. My skate guard fell off a few days ago and I got a nick on them + it was time for a sharpening and to add another screw.
The 2 screws at the top of my toe are still out. The boot and blade have not conformed to each other yet. I wonder if they ever will.
