[RC] OK, call me an Endurance snob,.. - Tom Sites

Angie, you got this ball a'rollin by your initial comment on the GB Pony Clubbers post and a partial response of....
"OK, call me an Endurance snob, but this irks the crap out of me. Now "Endurance" is 12-22 miles????  The most you can do is 22 miles? ...they need to call this "hacking " or something."
You were responding to a 9 year old girls impression of Endurance in Great Britian.  That would not have been the same response of CeCi Butler when she was doing 100's as a child and led SERA, the OD and others  to enact the 8 yo rule.  Or, Tommy or Cliffy Lewis when they did their "Endurance" rides and the grief they had to endure as a family.
Kat, i agree with YOU. 
100 miles in one day is Endurance.  Let the other stuff fluff towards whatever way politics and $$$ dictate.  This must be the winter LD discussion.
