The joint CanAm team was a North American effort to go to Britain and play by IGL rules using N.American trained dogs, a very courageous endeavour indeed. Curious that no European individual or group has felt the same spirit of adventure compel them to venture over here in Field Trials on either side of the 49th?
The rules are very different on both sides of the Atlantic, thus far only one side has shown nerve enough to brave the peculiarities of the others game. Eug, Polmaise, when are you coming?
It seems an almost impossible task to create a homogenized set of rules that could be readily agreed upon, so baring a major sponsor stepping up to create an independent venue with an approximation of a pan Atlantic set of rules, questions of supremacy of one training regimen or another will remain to be dealt with by the privateer with the greatest confidence.
As we used to say in a game at school.... Red rover, red rover, let xxxxx come over
