I just got a phone call from one of our delegates attending the Governing
Council Meeting in Phoenix - the Figure vote PASSED, which was worded to
eliminate the requirement of any figure tests for a freestyle event at
qualifying competitons.....  It was four hundred and something to three
hundred and something in terms of the vote.....   Someone who is there,
please post ASAP!  Thanks from all of us...

ARGH!

Will they at least have the honesty to change the name of the Association
so that the "F" stands for "Freestyle",rather than crown as "figure skating
champions" people who can't skate figures worth spit?

This is heartbreaking.  :'-(

I asked our rink owner the other day, "what will happen to our patches...
FITB."  He said the rink will offer at least one session a day indefinitely.

:-)    It is an ISIA sanctioned rink, which I don't know if that has
anything to do with it, and I don't care, I am just real glad that I can
keep learning figures !

Anyway, for the USFSA, ISU, and all those who support the elimination of
figures, I wonder if someday in the distant future it will be regretted?
