Come on guys and girls, this is about the only website we haven't pulled some entries off of yet, if nothing else bring a young person to run the youth handler event to get em interested! All money raised will be put to a good cause 75% to put more ducks in the air, 15% to put more kids in action and the remainder will be donated to a state organization geared to building retriever testing and training grounds (public)
Besides it is the most fun you can have all day and eve with your retriever and friends!

Jeff, I'd say you figured it pretty well--getting both your dogs in the top 6 :wink:
We didn't fare so well. One bitch came in season the week before so was a scratch. Then Pufin started to come in season the morning of the event we'd driven 3.5 hours for. (grrrr--3 months early!) but the judges allowed us to run last--alas though she did a great job on the marks, Puffin decided to play her Stevie Wonder act on the blinds.
However, she did redeem herself in the afternoon where I let a friend's young son run her in the Junior handler stakes. Dave Nolan, who trains with our own Vicky Trainor, won it with the Puff :D It was great to see so many kids -- 12 -- running dogs, ages 2 to 12. The two year old was pretty adorable running a Lab as big as she was!
Oh and BIG congrats to LabLady, Vikki Diehl, and Kate on the nice win in the extreme stakes!

Thanks! I had a great time also. Denny did a great job and I look forward to the event in 2006.
Oh, and I love my new shotgun!!!!!!

The two year old was pretty adorable running a Lab as big as she was!
That was Patty Jordan's Granddaughter running our SH bitch "Meg" who is now running Masters and "Q"s
We trained today and Patty said that her granddaughter had "Meg" wrapped around her little finger.
Where was she when I needed her today? :wink: I ran "Meg" and she was a handfull :oops:

Thanks for the kind words,
I have been making some rounds on dif forums this eve (after getting done Delta duties) and all have been good, that makes all the work worth it. The event last year was a big hit for the first and this year flew off the meter! We had a lot of good help and judges this year as when we started to get in a little bind someone pitched in to make it work, the Extreme event was intended to seporate the men from the boys but ended up seporating the girls from the men :P Way to Go Vikki!! It was a pleasure to throw birds in the last event, from my vantage point Kate looked like she was going to jump right over us to get to that memory bird!! shooooo!
But the youth event was the one that got me all choked up, it was awsome to see all them kids doing it and to think I had something to do with it got me all tore up, bout swallowed my Skoal!!
thanks and see ya next year!!
