23 Open dogs called back to the land blind for Saturday morning out of 50 starters. Ryan Brasseaux and Mark Smith each have 7.

Folks that have never seen the Lebeau Trail Grounds are completely awestruck! One of the Am judges from St Louis said that the grounds are far superior to Weldon Springs, home of this year's National.

Am starts today.

As the Trial Marshall, I have heard ZERO complaints! Solid test, great bird throwers and gunners. I'm sold on using a winger for throwing the flyer!

Eight dogs back in the Open for a monster water-quad Sunday. Ryan and Mark each have two.

17 dogs back in the Am for the waterblind.

A big congrats to Mark Smith and owner Jimmy Illes with Hidden Bay Sweet Sophie on the Open win! That makes two this year and with the qualification for the National, she is also now FC. Keep it up. 8)

Nice to see the seniors still active as a team, the both of them, Sam Milton and Ford. Ford got the Open second and won the Amateur! :wink:

Look at the bright side Gman. You finished both all age stakes and made the judges have to think. He was consistant too.

You and Wiz will be in the colors.

How about "Kissing your Twin Sisters"?

Well G, since it was in Lebeau, would that be like French kissing your sister"? :wink:

Booty,

Grounds really showed potential. If they looked this good after a few months - wait about 2-3 years from now.

I loved the Cypress Pond that we ran the last series of the Open in.
It is my new "FAVORITE" peice of water that I have ever run a dog on.
Not too big - Not too small - Great visibility all the way around - Lots of technical stuff but still very natural looking.

I agree and don't forget, all of the water on the property is not in yet.

Cypress Pond is a pretty piece of water. I understand that the Acadiana Club is going to run their Open on the Lebeau Trail grounds this coming weekend. Now, if we can get Laarree to get all 4 of those Kawasaki 4x4 Mules running for this weekend :wink:

Big thanks from the Cajun Riviera Field Trail Club to the Acadiana Club in helping out with the labor and equipment this past weeknd.

Way to Go Franco! Third is awesome!!! Sorry Gerard, I don't care what anyone says, fifth place hurts! Finishing both stakes is grand however. Wish we could make the distance to see what you all are talking about. Sounds good!
