For stops, what arm positions should be left to the skater, and which should stay? Please state the trick, if any.

Yes or no, for the use of the word “rules” to be amended, to the use of the word “guidelines” in all cases where “rules” are used in such language.

3. Vote:
The rules for the Hawk Turn to be amended so that just one hand is touching the ice, and the raised hand has no specifications to angle.

4. Vote:
Arm position ought to be left to the skaters in totality.

5. Vote:
Proposed policy: Rules ought to be enacted primarily as a tool for learning balance and in applying aesthetics, no matter what the usage of the word, i.e. “guidelines”.

    1. In all stops arms should be left up to the skater – solely for balance
    3.yes – some moves need set arm positions for aesthetics

    1.all stops arm positioning to be left to the skater because each skater has a slightly different style of skating
    4.yes – although arm positions are needed it is my belief that each skater should find his or her own comfort zone with arm positions
