EN’s mascot, a chinchilla (because a horse would just be cliché), was on the move at Rolex this weekend… eliciting responses ranging from “awwww, cute!” to, as one Instagrammer put it …
John is in the latter camp: “From a distance he looks all cute and furry, but then you look into his eyes and the dark beady blackness just bores into your soul.” Readers, you be the judge — here are postcards from few of his adventures.
It’s always happy hour at Rolex.
Lean back, little Chinch!

Oh no … PARTY FOUL!!!
Here’s to you, chinch!
By the end of the weekend, the chinch had amassed a sizable fan following, with EN readers stopping him in the street to pose for pictures. Did you snap any good chinchbombs? Share them on EN’s Facebook page! Speaking of which, check out this slice of social media insanity:
There was a Jack Le Chinch, Chinch Davidson and Winsome Chinchante in there. Too much, IT’S JUST TOO MUCH. #ChinchingTheWin #BestRolexEver #GoEventing!
