So who is going? If so, to see what?

We are going to see the cross country section of eventing on the 2nd, just ground passes on the 5th & vaulting on the 6th.

I heard there is going to be so much going on that we should be really busy even the day we just got a ground pass for. Sounds like there will be lots of booths from various countries there - just think we can shop tack from other countries all in one spot!

Mine is the blue roan, he will be doing flags with another member those first two days as well as the second performance of the last day since we have to fly back that evening).

I'm so desperate to go. Ah, the agony. Really, really wish I could. Tickets are crazy expensive though D:

But I just read that it will be in Normandie, France, in 2014, and as I hope to be transferring to university in the UK, this will be the perfect graduation present *hint to parents* lol.
