    I can't for the life of me fathom that we don't have a thread for this yet... but my searching skills and memory bank came up negative. So here we go....

    I will be there, along with Isabelle, from Tuesday to Sunday. Who else???

    I will be there, as usual. I wonder if the war between the organizations is splitting people's interest (and attendance) in comps.

    Forgive my ignorance, but could you clarify? Does attendance seem unusually light in some areas?

    Heatlists are up.. so you could check attendance for different divisions. The RS rhythm has 22, I think that's a lot more people than past years..

    Does 22 makes it a 1st round or a quaterfinal?

    :shock: WOW!!!!

    22 is a quarter.

    1-6 final
    7-12 semi
    13-23 quarter
    24-47 1st round

    And I think RS with a quarter is average.

    yes, it is usually a quarter.. I just thought it would be a 1st round, if the cut was at 18.. but still very close to 1st round
    thanks for the info

    I was thinking of international attendance in the "Open" events, especially the amateurs.

    I'm upset that I don't see Slavic and Anna entered!
  19. No Slavik and Anna

    Yes, no Slavik and Anna:sad:...disappointing - the highlight of last years USDSC (the year before it was Dimitri and Natalia, the year before that it was Andrej and Katarina)

    ...only Andrej and Melinda for the latin final (in addition to R & Y), glad to see Andrej and Melinda, also would be great to see Michael and Joanna or Stefano and Olga (of course nothing beats Slavik and Anna - clear away #1 in the world)

    ...don't care for them, but funny Franco and Oxana didn't stick around ...I believe Michael and Joanna were in the U.S. last year right before USDSC and skipped out too

    the one chance all year to see a great Latin final and it seems we only get one top six (or top eight) couple in addition to the U.S. champs - also our prize money is very low compared to many other WDC events especially Asian Tour events (and some Asian comps also provide travel expenses for qualifying couples)

    only $3,000 for 1st
    only $ 400 for 5th and 6th

    2nd was raised this year from $1800 to $2000
