The Qualifying completed Friday. There were 31 dogs entered. Judges were Don Dutton and Jim Adix.

1st - Justin Time Trump (Geoffrey Bewley) Jim Gonia
2nd- The Dutchman III (D.Styles&Cynthia Tallman) Chad Gleason
3rd - Fishtrap Heidi - Ray Bly
4th - Wishful Thinking II - Harry Williams
RJ - Henniger's Tru Line (TJ Lindbloom) John Henninger
JAM- Big Bear's Fred (Steve Bechtel) Bill Totten

The Open had 65 dogs entered with Ken Payne and Anne Devino judging.
I saw the land test but only watched a couple of dogs. It had a long bird in the middle thrown right to left on the far side of water and retired. The right bird was also thrown on the far side of water and also retired. The left flyer was short and thrown right to left. The marks were wide of each other. It was raining, the tall grass held lots of dragback. You could not see the water until you got there. Alot of dogs hunted short of the water and in the dragback. Alot of dogs did not watch the right hand bird go down because of the short flyer (it wasn't real close but very attractive). My understanding is about half of the field survived. The land blind was this morning. I hope someone else will be able to fill in the results. HPW

Thanks Harry, congratulations on the 4th!

Harry, I was thinking that if you're finishing trials, that's not wishful thinking that's DOING.

Way to go!!!

Hi Harry

When you going to bump Hope up to AA? She's already qualified and obviously doing the work for you. I really enjoyed judging you both to your Q 2nd last fall, very nice dog.

I really appreciate the kind words. I don't run alot of trials. My last three trials have been a 2nd last Oct., a 3rd in March and a 4th last weekend. I'll run in May at Spokane. I am running a NAHRA test this weekend. I'll most likely start running the Am in July at PSRC. Howard, my line is "It's not wishful thinking if you have HOPE". HPW

PS way to go TNT and Suprdog on your places!!!
