Each year the Orange Coast Division has a work party to go over every piece of piste equipment and Dan comes to it. It is always interesting to hear the story of the FIE. This time he told me about some rules that were at Bejing and will be at London. The first one shocked me. 1) For Foil/Sabre only 2-prong connectors are allowed. 2) Only White or Clear cords are allowed for both mask cords and body cords. Dan was saying that the latter will soon be enforced at all FIE competitions.
