Also should qualify Eli for 06 Nat Amat, unless he already was.

Nope. :( He already has 5 points from his Amateur win at the Ohio National Specialty. A maxium of 5 is allowed to count towards a title.

Bob, you're absolutely right about that qualifying Eli for both Nationals!

Open:
Rjam: Emberain Semper Case of Red/Herskowitz
Jams: Ida Red's Atlanta Challenge MH/Fogg
Ajax the Greater of McLean/Fogg
Splashdown Arriba Reba/Ducross
AFC TNT's Explosion UD/Gunn

Amateur-57 called back for land blind
Qual-12 called back for water marks
Derby-14 called back for last series

Phoenix/Bev Burns has used up the 5 specialty points, needs more all-breed points (1 1/2 I think) for AFC

I believe that makes 9.5 poiunts for Jake with a win...he inches closer. Congrats to all who placed and to all who ran.

Steve,

I heard they only ran two series in the Derby today? But then again, it was a cell phone call from a group of giddy Golden people obviously indulging in libations so I could have heard wrong. :roll: :lol:

Melanie, you are probably right. I was at Amateur all day and assumed they had run 3.

Wow!
Phoenix won the Open and Connie aand Eli qualified for the Nationals!!
I am assuming Connie was the one who ran Eli?
And Whistler and Phoenix turn 9 this Saturday-guess there will be no retirement parties in the South this year!!

3) Lacross Max Q Jake*** -- Whiteley & Gassner

Doesn't that give Jake the point he needed for his AFC? Or was that just to get to the National Am last year?

Thanks for the update Steve (Hope to see you & the Missus down the road when the new pup needs a few Hey Hey Heys!! :) )

Yea!!! It was Ajax w/ the placement in the Am (& a Jam in the Open!!). I bet everybody knows the story, but he is a $175 dog w/ no titles in his pedigree & Lanier's first retriever trained for hunt tests initially. He's a big love & he holds his own-all heart.

What's up with the coverage of the FT on the GRCA web site? No daily callbacks, no description of the tests, and no definitive results. I'd guess that anyone who had Derby results or Qual jams would post them, right?

I think they are kind of busy running the Event. And by the way they did a great job. Thanks Megan Baker, who made it happen, Tom Lehr, Jim Drager, And Strathern, the Colemns, Elizabeth Wilson and all the folks that I don't know about that worked.

I was only a spectator at the FT, but kudos to everyone involved. I only saw Open, but it ran so smoothly. Bird boys & gunners were awesome. Only a couple no-birds. Katie Gutermuth was the perfect person to have as the Marshall.

Kudos also to Tom and Megan for organizing the hunt test. Audrey and her husband (forgot his name, but he could do standup comedy) were also great to have as Marshalls-organized and friendly-big plus!! Kate says thank you for allowing her to be pick up dog in the 2nd series & test dog in the third.

Workers party at Tom & Megan's Saturday night was a great time. LOTS of wine :wink:

I know I'm overtaking the thread, but I wanted to thank Carol Lewis profusely for letting Kate run test dog on land & water in the WCX. She really didn't need to, but it was a joy to let her get those big ol' rooster pheasants!!

Ok-I'm done! :roll:

I wish to thank Megan, Tom and all of the volunteers that worked so hard to put on a nice event. I enjoyed meeting a lot of nice folks, and watching some very nice young dogs. Sorry I was unable to post results, but was pretty much working from dawn 'till dusk.
Funny....I didn't see Randy there :?

Thanks, Demi!

I had no doubt that Megan, Tom and PVGRC would do a good job. Just looking to catch up on news about friends, relatives and training partners who competed in the various stakes.

Nice to see Carey and Hawk do so well in the Am.

I noticed that Jim lost Peach in August. She must have been a heck of a dog. I wish him and Sunshine the best of luck at the National.

She was indeed lost to us after a brave battle with C. She has produced several litters that are doing quit well in all disiplines. She was a pretty specail girl and I know Jim and Kathy miss her deeply. Thru his sadness he had a great week.

How about someone with some spare time and a catalogue putting some of the Derby dogs in K-9 data? I noticed a couple of them aren't there.
Congrats to all--sure wish I'd been able to attend....maybe next year.

Andy,

Now that you're home we can say BIG CONGRAULATIONS to you and John on your Open 3rd and RJ in the Amateur! :D :D :D

(And thanks for the calls rubbing in how much fun I was missing. :twisted: )

John Gassner

Melanie

We really had no fun at all. We just made the best of a bad situation. How much fun is it with Bait a a kegger party? Or watching the kitchen keep bringing out more and more food (the clams were sure good)?

Having to endure Lanier "helping" Terry Thornton with some "personal handling" issues cost Terry a $400 wine bill I think. I hope the advice was worth it. :shock:

Training with Becky, Steve Low, Steve Amrein, Gayle, Andy, Jeff Buikema and Miriam was pure torture. We had an awful time. ( I just hope they appreciate my training "help" and "serious focus")

These folks don't know how to have a good time.......and Goldens (like Jake) can't do big tests, or hit the water like a rocket. Right

Seriously, it was nice to meet so many great people. Bev Burns, The DuCrosses, Gunns, and of course everyone in our "platinum" training group.

Melanie please send us your resume' for the 2006 training group. We'll have to give you a personality profile to see if you "fit in".

What do you guys think?

Always serious regards

He did Not come home with the blue (although he was VERY close in the Open).

Doug, Please go easy on Andy. You know how sensative he is about this. And remember, we have BOTH judged your trial.

I just got to handle the handlers this week. It wasn't easy. Ask Becky, Miriam, and especially Terry.

We would like to personally thank each and every PVGRC member who helped make the field events a success. Tom went to bed and woke up each day worrying that we did not have enough help. Each day club members, Rescue workers or out of town contestants stepped up to fill the holes. Many of the club members as You know were also helping somewhere else. Many came as a pleasant surprise as they were not on my list of workers. Please pass on a big THANK-YOU to all who helped !!!!
