Jerry, I'm trying to get everything updated on the website, but it's slow going.

The attention as of late is on NFRA's first National Open and National Masters.
The stage is set, the handlers and dawgs are ready, and the judges are in place. Should be a great time for all.

November 3rd through 6th, Glencoe, Oklahoma




NFRA.............................comin' to a town near you


GOOD LUCK TO ALL......................... :wink:

Well the events started today with a handlers meeting and breakfast. Locations, judges introduction, etc, took place. Those handlers who wanted to train today were then directed to those locations and judges continued setting up tests. This evening was a dinner with a silent auction.

First test for both Master and Open will be a diversion bird blind. I would assume that the second test will be land marks.

For those interested I will try to post again tomorrow night after the tailgate party.

For this other Chris, it's become a pavlovian response!

I see "the Snows", I think of post-dog event, tailgating with Chris, Sue, and of course, Alexander.

You guys got some good beer, eh?

Go NFRA!

OK, a quick update before I head out for day 2. Day one first test was a diversion bird blind for both Master and Open. Dogs would pick up a shot flyer, then run the blind which was about 165 for the Open and 150 for the Master. The blind was down a fairly steep hill through some cover at the bottom and back up the other side. Strong cross wind and several gaps on the upside of the hill for the dogs to choose from. Most dogs handled this test well. It was just a warmer of things to come.

Second series, Open was a 265 yd retired gun up the middle, 170 yd left hand bird thrown onto the dam of a dry pond, and a 120 yd flyer on the right. Wind angling across the test from left to right. Most dogs got the outside birds clean then would break down a little early on the retired gun when they hit the scent behind the left hand station.

Second series , Master. The middle retired gun moved in to about 120 yds and threw angle back, left hand gun stayed the same, and the flyer moved more to the right. Master dogs had a little more trouble with the left hand bird as they didn't want to go across the dried pond and would skirt around and end up on the back side of the gun station and get hung up in the scent. Most ran deep on the retired gun and worked their way back.

Third series for both Master and Open was a land blind back across the marks. I didn't get to see this series, but heard the master dogs handled it well, but the Open dogs and the flyer crates and scent were good friends. Also a very narrow gap for dogs to run which made easy for them to get lost on the last 3rd of the blind.

Water marks this morning. I forgot the camera yesterday so will try to get some pics today.
