Rorem got 2nd and 3rd in the Qual. I'm not sure who won. The Derby finished today but i left when they were doing the placements.

The Open went from 63 to 25 (we called back 4 handles from the first), lost 9 on the land blind... 16 to the water blind... we called 12 back for the last series tomorrow morning.

The AM finished the land blind today.

The first series finished at 8:30pm on Friday. The land blind went quick Sat morn, water blind was 12mins. Finished at 4pm on Saturday.

My flight leaves Monday at 1pm. We got plenty of time! :D

Three days is the proper amount of time to fairly test 63 dogs using the often ignored tenet about being generous with callbacks when there is time to do so.
If you have three days why on earth would you try to impress everyone with how fast you can dispatch the field.

Four judging panels regards

25 out of 63 4 of those were handles to the land blind then 2 days to run 3 test on the remains. No point in rushing after that blood bath. Were's that gimme flyer :wink:

A hen pheasant flyer is never a gimme! hehe

We could have squeezed in the last series late Saturday... no point in running dogs in poor light and working help to death just so we can say we did it in 2 days.

I don't think better than 1 out of 3 is a bloodbath (contrary to the 1 out of 7 as posted on the main forum). One of those handles got 4th place.

Congrats to Chris on the win with Nick, surely a bittersweet victory with the passing of Nick's owner Darrel Russo this past Monday.

I'm sure Nick put on a show for his "Dad" this weekend.....

That's pretty cool. I wonder if any tears were shed under this situation?

What great news about "Nick!" I think this is his title? Could someone verify?

Like Keith said-this win is a little bittersweet as Darrel passed away this week. However, I am sure this will make Debbie's weekend better.

Sorry to hear of Darrel's passing, this is the first I've heard of it.

Darrel was a fine competitor and judge. I'll miss not seeing him around.

Jesse Kent said she choked up inside when Nick went out and put that retired bird between his legs! What a great tribute to this dog's owners passing. I'm sure Mr. Russo was smiling from above at that very moment :D I think Nick had 9 ribbons last year, and needed this win for his FC.

I heard about that right after we did the placements. Nick certainly put on a very impressive marking display this weekend.

I do believe that was his title as well.

6 out of 12 did it. A couple others came very close, but couldn't quite come up with the right hand mark.

I have to say I got a little choked up myself when I saw this here at work. Had to shut my office door :oops: Wow! Congrats to Chris Ledford and the Russo Family.

Congrats to Rorem and Willie on their 3rd. Willie is a Nick pup.

I guess Nick and his son made a decent showing this weekend.

Would have loved to have been there,

Homer is a player! He did a respectable job on the Open first series as test dog. He handled on the last mark... but so did a lot of FCs!

Congrats to Scott, Dave, and Bryan White for doing his young dog work.

Thanks.

Too bad I sold the little guy soon after the photo was taken. I am kicking myself for not keeping him. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Good luck with your pups.
