As many of you are aware l reported during our Show/Precision Championships, that the Italian Federation had produced an excellent DVD with explanations of all aspects of Show Skating.
At our meeting in Nantes, many Countries asked if they could purchase this, and the Vice-President of the Italian Federation, agreed that l could send one copy to each European Nation who requested this DVD, at no cost.
This DVD is now prepared and any European Nation wishing to receive a copy should e.mail me requesting this, giving clearly the address this should be sent to.
It is the responsibility of each Nation to ensure that their Judges who Judge Show Skating either in Europe or the World Championships should be given a copy of this by their own Nation, as it is something the Judges must study before Judging.
In addition to the above, l said at the meeting l, on behalf of CEPA Committee, would set up a Sub-Committee to look at the rules for Show Skating, in order that they can be made more clear, and the various opinions could be brought more together in order that the Judges have a clearer idea of what is required.
This has now been done and the Sub-Committee will meet shortly and will present CEPA with a document of their suggestions.
The sub-committee consists of:
Sandro Guerra – Italy – In charge of the Committee
Ricard Planoil – Spain
Hendryk Schamberger – Germany
I thank these 3 gentlemen for their time and effort.
MARGARET BROOKS - President, CEPA
