I don't have the time/energy to list all the jumps - and I assume protocols will go up and that will solve it all. If you are dying to know if your friend landed their - whatever - drop me an e-mail and I will let you know - other wise I am just noting serious problems or huge successes.

Autumn - Great arch in his back and wonderful expression. Uses his head and face and arms. I just loved his soulfullness.

Magnificent Seven, Copland - Rodeo. Gets huge Copeland bonus points. Combo spin was messy. Powerful skater, but his presentation sort of comes and goes.

Beethoven - Egmont Overture - My husband feels Armin should donate some letters to Curran Oi to even out their last names some.Very entertaining skater. Nice energy. Did a 3 toe-3toe. Stepped out of a sal-toe combo.

Czardas. Fell on the lutz and had rough landings on his flip and axel. Fough for them all and help on, but a white knuckler.

Le Petit Poucet. Flying sit spin wandered quite a bit. The program is light on transitions and there is a bit while he waits for his footwork music where he was standing and waving arms. Oops. Got a lot fo jumps done.
