Re: [RC] How about a Revolution? - Tom Sites

Learning from our current 'combatants' and the reasoning behind 'cells', each one can voice their opinions at the local level.

It was the Poet Gil Scott-Heron who on his album 'Winter in America' asked the question..."Why do we put compounds that have a half-life of 10,000 years in 55 gallon drums that only last 50 years?". Someone has to ask Questions, and Question Authority.

At the local, grass-roots levels, let your voices be heard. ts

Since Steph will toast me for a "me-to" post, I'll disguise it in
religious terms :-) :

Amen - brother.

Your brother in the revolution

Jeeze I haven't been involved in a good revolution since the 60's and 70's!

self-inflection of a 'Has-been' who has been on 3 FEI Teams (66 2/3%
completion), support at the first WEC, been the Chef d'Cook at 4
PAC's, Catered the WEC in Ft. Royal, on the first USET Active Riders
Committee, and seen the current 'Sport' of Endurance at the FEI Level
evolve to its current state.

My position is simple.

It is time for the FEI Level of Competition to distance itself from
the AERC and go under the umbrella of the USET and 'Go Its Own Way'.
This current situation of drugs and money won't 'Go Away', so its time
for the AERC to do such, if in my mind it will ever salvage its intent
and purity, and dissolve AERC International.

FEI and AERC may be cousins, but not Brothers.

My Question to you all is... What would Wendall Do?
