Susan, thanks for the info. Congratulations to Ax and Trace and all the rest of the Vinwood crew that are advancing.

I heard that Susan Ritch and Toots won the Derby. Congratulations on your second win in a row!

was told the 1st series of the Open was a tough, but fair double that was just eating dogs up. With over half the field out I'd say it was a tough double.

Glen Lokay and Ken Robbins demonstrated Friday what knowledgeable judges can do with a 100-dog Open entry to manage time, get seperation and do it without tricks or pencil whipping. The dogs eliminated themselves and I doubt there were any complaints from handlers about why they were dropped.

For anyone unfamiliar with the coastal area north of Rockport, TX, it is flat, flat and flat with no big trees and few small ones. Hills are nothing more than a 4-5 foot high sand dune and the wind is always a factor. This double consisted of a duck throw left to right at about 400 yards with the fall behind a sand dune and retired. The line was on a raised road bed. The tough part was a false horizon about 100 yards in front of the fall that encouraged dogs to swing left with the wind and hunt short.

The second bird was a duck flyer on the left side thrown right to left into high cover at about 225 yards. There were some big hunts, but most dogs were able to dig it out. Despite some big hunts on some of the marks, they were averaging about 10 dogs per hour.

Is a false horizon (AT 300 YARDS) a trick test?
The last time I saw a false horizon it was only at 250 yards. The gunners threw and started walking. Then the 2nd bird was thrown. (1st gunners still walking) Then the 3rd bird was thrown between the 1st and 2nd. (1st gunners still walking) Then the flyer shot outside of the 2nd bird. (gunners still walking). That was fun cluster .......

I know it's not a trick test ... jus brings back memories!
