    No not yet. They do that tomorrow morning. Actually, the schedule is exactly the same as for any of the other big 4 stars, what with the trot up and briefing on the wednesday, dressage thurs/fri and the x-country saturday with s/j sunday.

    Have you looked at the offical site yet Robby? They have done a really nice job. There is even a funky moving x-country diagram (you know those are my favourites [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )

    I'll set my VCR to tape any coverage, if anyone knows if there will be any - this weekend, or whenever. Thanks!

    Janeway, but the dates are inconsistent with the schedule, apparently. They have the three day listed as beginning on 9/10, and I assumed that would be the day they jog (since that is actually what is consistent with other schedules).

    And what's going on with it? It's 2 o'clock here, shouldn't it be, like 9 p.m. there?

    Apparently they have jogged believe it or not Robby as I just saw a blurb on the Australian website annoucing that their event team had all passed.

    Why are all the websites so slow to update? As you pointed out, its well into evening in Western Europe, you'd think that Horse and Hound or Eurodressage etc. would have updated by now, let alone the offical WEG site [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    They need you out there Robby! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Has anybody else noticed the consistent and quite comical misspelling of 'three' on the official WEG website?

    (Or perhaps an Irishman is in charge of the site's English translations!)

    web page

    Kind of hard to negotiate around within, IMHO.
    And click on the Union Jack for English, rather than the word English (it is backwards)!

    There are two blurbs on the UDBB one from Sally O'C and one from Jimmy W that both indicate preliminary reports of the cross country course are "huge, trappy, twisty, and some are looking a little green" after viewing it!

    I'm assuming there's a technical problem, since no updates have been made by COTH since yesterday morning? Melinda, if you're out there reading, I'm with you in spirit, sister! You will persevere!

    Here's a snippet from Horse and Hound online:

    "British team raring to go
    After the first horse inspection, Britain is eighth in the team order, a distinct advantage as they will get some feel as to how the cross-country is riding.
    Team manager Yogi Briesner has highlighted the two water complexes as potential troublespots and suggests that few will try the direct route at the second. However, he thinks he has discovered a compromise between the long and short routes to save time.
    The team order is the same format that won the European gold medal last year, Jeanette Brakewell as pathfinder, for the fourth consecutive time, Leslie Law second, Pippa Funnell third and William Fox-Pitt as the ever-cool anchorman. Individuals are Tina Cook and Polly Stockton.
    The New Zealand team, reigning champions, comprises team stalwarts Andrew Nicholson and the reigning individual title holder Blyth Tait, plus newcomers Dan Jocelyn and Kate Lambie, who sprung to prominence when fifth at Badminton.
    Helana Tompkins, who rides the less experienced Crusada, is an individual.
    Double Olympic gold medallist Phillip Dutton is a surprise omission from the Australian team with House Doctor, the horse he rode in Sydney and all selector Gill Rolton would say was: "You can draw your own conclusions as to our decision."
    Instead rookies David Middleton, winner and runner-up of the Adelaide four-star, and Olivia Bunn get the call, along with Olympic gold medallists Stuart Tinney and Andrew Hoy, although both ride horses who are unknown quantities at this level.
    Kick-off is at 10am on Thursday (12 September), with a Spanish lunch-break of three hours and the second team horses running in the cool of the evening."

    News Flash!

    David O'Connor leads on 34.4 penalties at 11.40 am Thursday.

    From the British Eventing website:

    "British team riders Jeanette Brakewell on Over to You has ridden an excellent test to achieve a personal best score achieving 45.6 penalties, this taking her into 4th place. Polly Stockton and the former Mark Todd ride Eye Spy are close behind on 54.4 penalties, but the current leader is David O'Connor on 34.4 penalties.(Provisional scores as of 11.40am Thursday 12th September)"
