BTW, this was the first time the Tulsa Retriever Club has held a Qual in conjunction with our Hunt Test and from the response we got we will being doing it again.

Wow, I heard the Crook's were still training--they trained and ran some wonderful dogs in their day. I think I first met Wayne at a Sagehen's/Northern Cal picnic trial at Jones Lake back in the early '70s.
Occasionally I drive past their old ranch & kennels in Pescadero and every time I do, it reminds me of those great dogs they trained for Peter & Rona Jones, Eloise Heller-Cherry, Ray Goodrich, and others. How nice to know they're still doing what they love--even now into the 2nd and maybe 3rd generation.

Chuck Jr. is now well into his 60's and going strong. A great man and a great trainer. His son is also in the business and a great guy also.
Tim West and Crook Kennels.
And CONGRATS to Paul Rainbolt! (AKA Tulsa Slim)

Well, obviously I don't need to congratulate myself.
Congrats to Crook Kennels is what I meant.

RE: Crook Kennels
A blast from the past! As a teenager growing up in San Jose in the '70s, everyone in retrievers knew about Crook Kennels.

I can tell you without the Crook Kennels and the Crook family the Tulsa Retriever Club would have one heck of a time trying to hold a Hunt Test or a Field Trial. We are truly blessed to have them in our membership.

WAY TO GO PAUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I sure like to watch that little dog run!!!!
First... you deliver the best line in the history of RTF (see my sig), and next you win the Q! It's been a good week for you!

Thanks guys, it sure was nice picking up that last bird without a whistle for a change. My training group is the best and deserves a lot of the credit for this win.
It has been a great week for me Shayne thanks, and did you know Dallas has the most shaved Golden's in the mid west and is second in the nation next to Miami Beach :wink: .Just a little more useless information for your next gallery chat . Paul

Ramsey really ran well for you Friday. Congrat's for sure. I was proud to get thru without a handle myself. That was my 1st FT ribbon so I am pleased with an RJ. If the little fart hadn't cheated the water on the last mark I would be a bit happier.
