Pan American Championships….August 7, 1999

	Event organizer, Myna Cryderman, writes that she has received entries from
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Sweden,
Romania,  UAE, and Australia.  Most of the zones in Canada and the US are
sending their full compliment of 12 riders.

Site information:
Winnipeg is the capitol of Manitoba.  Spruce Woods Park is 61,000+ acre and
boasts many winter sports and summer horse rental and riding trails.  The
topography is forest, sand dunes, white spruce-covered sand hills,  and
mixed grass prairie.
If going to Canada…remember that the exchange rate is in the U.S. favor with
the U.S. $1.00 = $1.50 Canadian.  Most Canadians will take your U.S. money,
but it will be more cost efficient to exchange money at a bank or exchange
center, as they will generally give a better exchange rate.  Gambling and
drinking legal age is 18.

WEC  Pre Pre-Ride, Compiègne, France
June 5, 1999

News is still ecstatically filtering in from the French ride. Our U.S.
“ambassadors” learned a lot; how to navigate through the paté  and frois
gras to the ride site, what a wonderful chemin (trail) they had, what
weather might be….and a peek at the competition.
 Georges emails from France that several of our riders were eliminated “pour
boiterie” (lameness).  The winner of the race, a Mlle Peringerard, won on
her “jument” (mare), Varoussa.  This competitor had also ridden in Dubai for
	Tony Benedetti reports that the ride terrain was “perfect, flat trails of
sandy loam.”  He is certain this ride was like no other in the U.S. as the
Vet checks were “on the front park of a chateau. “
And what history!  This ride area north of Paris was used for centuries for
riding and hunting parties by Kings and nobles.  Joan of Arc was captured
here while helping to defend Compiègne.
	Many thanks to Mary Lutz and USET for helping to sponsor our riders in
France. Look for updates in this column on the team and ride  for WEC 2000.
