Skate Singapore or Skate Asia Winter Classic?
Every year, Fuji Ice Palace organises an ISI Competition at the end of the year. This year's dates are set for 6-9 December 2007, but from what I hear, it has not yet been decided what the competition will be called. The competition should be announced once everything is finalised.
** Update on 1 Aug 2007: The competition dates are announced on the Fuji Ice Palace events site
** Update on 13 Aug 2007: The competition dates are changed to 29 Nov - 2 Dec 2007.
** Update on 23 Aug 2007: The competition has been announced as "The Second Skate Asia Winter Classic 07".
It seems like our Nationals next year may be held earlier - in January. This would leave skaters not much time to prepare and test...
The rink had expressed concern about two different competitions being held so close to each other - reason being, the local pool of skaters would often decide to attend one of the competitions, and not both. However, I see there being a possibility for some skaters to use the ISI competition as a chance to prepare themselves for the Nationals, although for others the requirements would make it difficult for them to use the same program. Of course it is eventually up to the skater whether they want to enter both!
