This morning, we skated our long program twice for official practice. The first run-through was a little rough, but we were able to pull it together and skate the second one with more confidence. Tonight, we skate very last (they saved the best for last :]) and are ready to skate a strong long program!

The official start of our season will be Saturday, August 7th. We will have summer sessions, we encourage all skaters to enjoy their summer vacation, but when you're in town, please attend our summer sessions and be ready for some hard work.
We still have a couple positions open on the Senior and Novice teams for qualified candidates. If you know of any skaters who might be interested, please let us know.
We are looking forward to another great season!

Then the skaters get a break from regular team practice until the new season begins in August, but:
All is not idle until then. There will be a 6-week off-season training program on Saturdays from April 3 to May 8, 2010. Tryouts for the new season will follow immediately on May 15 and 16, 2010.
The off-season training program has three main goals:
1. To maintain and enhance the skating skills of current team members.
2. To provide an opportunity for prospective members to become aquainted with the team and to learn the fundamental skills of synchronized team skating.
3. To help everyone prepare for participation in the tryouts.
In addition, California Gold hopes to begin a new team at the Juvenile level this coming season. So there will be special sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays — introductory classes in synchronized team skating hosted by the East West Ice Palace Skating School and taught by the California Gold coaches.

After lunch and a NAP :) we walked back over to the rink and cheered on our fellow Americans, Chicago Jazz. It was difficult to really watch the teams skate since we were being mobbed by French elementary students. The language barrier did not stop them from getting our autographs, shaking our hands and giving high-fives.
Now feelings of excitment and anticipation are in the air as we slick back our hair and beautify ourselves for short program tonight! We skate around 9:00PM (about 1:00PM, for you)! So, send good luck wishes and watch us LIVE on the official French Cup website:

The hotel hosted a wonderful breakfast for us and another team…a men’s futbol team (that’s soccer, by the way). Once Cheryl told us that we had a whopping 45 minutes to get ready to venture into Paris, we booked it to our rooms for showers and primping, since we knew the vast amount of pictures that would be taken.
