U.S. Figure Skating Championships

Skaters are also not permitted to regress a level; if a skater has competed in senior ladies, she may not compete in junior ladies in any subsequent year. There are no age limits to competing. The terms "novice", "junior", and "senior" refer to the level of skating, not the age of the competitors. Therefore, competitors on the senior level do not have to be old enough to compete internationally on the senior level, and competitors on the junior level do not have to be young enough to compete internationally on the junior level.

Note that the qualifying rules for the U. Championships have varied greatly over the history of the event. The regional qualifying event structure was not uniformly put in place until the —67 season. Also, prior to this time, at sectional qualifying events skaters competed at one level above their national level, so for instance senior sectional champions qualified to skate at the junior, rather than senior, national level.

Figure Skating voted to strip Tonya Harding of her title. However, the competition results were not changed and the title was left vacant rather than moving all the other competitors up one position.

Days are spent on the lake, in the woods, and on the clay tennis courts. There are also organized kids' activities. Guests take their meals in two dining halls near the lake. New families hoping to break in should jump at any available week offered—most likely early or very late summer. That doesn't mean you can't let your juiced four-year-old run wild on the grounds, however.

The resort's large outdoor pool, its fleet of small boats and mountain bikes, and its hayrides, golf and tennis clinics, and supervised kids' camps keep children happily on the go—and, one prays, compliant enough at day's end to sit through the formal dinners served in the inn's pretty water-view dining room. If your kids can't quite rise to the sports coat—and—party dress routine, there are casual options—including weekly beachside lobster bakes.

Smallish rooms in the main inn are best suited for couples; families can choose from one- to three-bedroom cottages, many with private decks, screened porches, lake views, and working fireplaces. This just-cheery-enough room Tyrolean-style hotel—with its painted armoires, fluffy eiderdowns, and overflowing window boxes—is set on 2, glorious acres above the Nebraska Valley.
