On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.

Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.

It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

A Little Distracted From Skating..

I have been a little distracted this past week.
My son and his wife gave birth to their first born July 27th.   A healthy baby boy they named Grayson-Everett !!

Super exciting, but alas they are nearly 3000 miles away and I can't visit until July 17th.

Meanwhile back on the ice .... I have been working on strictly Silver MIF for a July 10th test date.
I posted a little video the other day, but it's seriously too boring to keep posting.  I will post my test (pass or fail) and the results.  If I get some freestyle in this week, I will post snippets.

I got an invite to participate in the USFS Showcase 2014 event in Burbank in August.  You have to have placed 1st-4th place in the past competition year to be eligible.  I am toying with the idea of taking my light entertainment program only, but I may just forfeit ... it's a big expense.  And it's under spotlight ... dark arena with just a spotlight on you skating.  That may be scary.  I have until July 16 to decide.
