Now that I’m finally allowed into something, here I sit in the cathedral atmosphere of the FEI Rule Change meeting that always takes place the day before the GA. The point of this session is to acquaint the NFs with any potentially contentious rule changes (except for the Olympic qualifications, since that was a separate meeting yesterday – ahem), and to presumably invite any questioning and debate  now, rather than to clog the well-oiled progress of all that ‘yaying’ that happens at the GA.

I am pretty sure they have piped Tryptophan into the ventilation system in the auditorium. Even the speakers seem tranquilized.  The Endurance meeting is coming up in half an hour. Stand by, I think that might be a bit more electrifying a session.
