Surely something has happened?????? :D

Aaron

Word that I got was that there was a double in the Open-400yd retired memory bird, short flyer into some water, and that it was providing answers.

Qual was a triple with longer retired bird-flyer on the right-all thrown left to right, I think. It too, was said to be taking its toll over the last several dogs.

All second-hand info regards,

She is running in the Qual, and marshalling...

She ran the combined Land/Water blinds. Bullet lined the Land and did ok on the water. Felt like they made up some ground, but is not in the top few right now.

There ar 4 more dogs and they will run in the morning

She had to go help clean up, and did not say anything about the Open

Frist series of the Am was a triple.

Long retired bird thrown right to left.

Half way to this bird, a flyer thrown right to left.

On the right side, another right to left retired bird.

Shot........Long, right hand bird, flyer.

Basically run under the arc of Flyer to get to long retired.

Pretty nice test in a really nice field. Super windy today. Started the land blind but it was scraped. 7:30 start tomorrow morning.

He is extremly fortunate to have only scrapes and bruises.
When I checked him into the ER and was waiting for his parents to arrive, the ER personel thought that he might have a concussion but his dad phoned us later to say that he was released from the hospital and did not have any serious injuries.
Having witnessed him and the ATV flying thru the air and seeing the total destruction of the ATV I would say that he was very lucky.

The AM is running a land and a water blind. under the arc poison bird on the land blind. A lot of dogs picking up the poison bird. Guthrie got past the poison bird but was not invited to run the water blind.

Just finished the second series of the derby. A couple dogs handled. Boogie did a real nice job. Super tough derby so far, very nice. The qual was really tough too... these judges are doing a great job.

The AM is running a land and a water blind. under the arc poison bird on the land blind. A lot of dogs picking up the poison bird.


How far away from the line is the poison bird?
What is the distance between the guns and the poison bird?
Which way was the wind blowing?

1. About 50 yards I would say.
2. About as far as a bird boy could throw it with an arc.
3. When I ran there was very little wind but I believe it was expected to be at your back.

This was a land blind and then water blind by invitation.

Land blind was about a 300 yards across a sloping field. Yes, the line was under the arc of a poison bird.

At the end of the blind there were two hay bales that were assumed to be the corridor.

Dozer went under the arc of the poison bird and through the bales....with many casts in between.

I was not invited to water blind due to "not challenging the line"

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Tell me it was ugly or horrible................but don't tell me I didn't challenge the line. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Robbie Bickley had to strip down and save one of the birdboys from drowning in the last series of the open. The boy fell out of a boat from where he was throwing a mark.
Kudos to Robbie

That you are reduced to pointing out obvious tyops, shows just how weak your position is.

It is now at 4535 views and rising, which means that, according to your logic, 175 people checked this thing out about 26 times each :shock:

. . .Not. . ..

It's dead as a door nail regards,

I never doubted that you passed math in school, John. Your logic is still fatally flawed.

I'll leave it to you to figure out how. I've given you enough help.

Crazy weekend... one birdboy totalled a 4 wheeler and was taken to the ER, another fell out of a boat and nearly drowned.

First and foremost... major kudos to Robby. The dude is a hero. I talked to the kid later yesterday and he was in shock and could not stay above water. Robby literally saved him. He had to swim 30-35 yards in cold water to do it. The original story was Robby stripped to his whitey tighties, but Robby later told me he was wearing under armor..... i'm sticking with the whitey tighty story.

Second... both accidents could have been prevented with a little influence from many of the responsible adults around witnessing both acts. 3 people told me they saw the kid hauling butt on the 4 wheeler multiple times and yet no one told him to slow down. The life jacket thing is a given.

I have a meeting every morning with our bird boys and go over popper gun stuff and throwing with them.... you can bet 4 wheeler discussion will be added to the agenda. I hope all event chairman/coordinators gain something from this - which is why i posted it on the internet in the first place.

Well said, Shayne.

Our BBs are supervised on-site by parents and JROTC booster club staff. Two standing rules are: 1) no bird boys on 4 wheelers anywhere, anytime; 2) bird boys in boats must have been signed off for by their parents, must have JROTC administrative permission, must wear PFDs at all times in the boat, and the boat MUST have a Type 4 (throwable) PFD in it as well.

As an aside, all guns are in gun stands. Bird boys are NOT allowed to reset the guns in the stands should they work loose.

Those are great rules.

My backround is aquatic safety and I would make sure that the PFD's are coast guard approved and that they are being worn properly.

I or one of two other club members personally supervised the fitting and wearing of the type III pfds in tests where they are used.

We've stopped a test and pulled a kid out of a boat and replaced him because he chose to take off his vest and get some sun during a rebird on land. We did that to make a point.

It didn't happen again. :wink:

We were ALL lifeguards at the city pool in high school Dan. :wink:

The judges wanted a boat bird - well within their jurisdiction to request one - and the club workers/volunteers/whoever wasn't doing something helped setup the test and get it going. Thats how it always is at field trials and we all know that. The event committee has the ultimate say so regarding safety at a trial... but the point here is that its ALL OF OUR RESPONSIBILITY as a community to speak up when we see something unsafe.

That is true, it is All of our responsibility.

Many of us were lifeguards, but I am still a lifeguard at the community pool... :wink: :lol:

Second... both accidents could have been prevented with a little influence from many of the responsible adults around witnessing both acts. 3 people told me they saw the kid hauling butt on the 4 wheeler multiple times and yet no one told him to slow down. The life jacket thing is a given.

First I was the person who told the BB he could take the ATV down the road to use the port-a-potty. I was also the one who briefed them on safety, ensured they understood how to operate the ATV and other related stuff (like dogs people, etc, etc). He had been using the ATV the day prior and that morning with no idication to me that he would not listen to instructions.

As far as stopping the kid, you were not there, it happened in all of seconds and by the time I realized what happened I could not get words out of my mouth fast enough.....I watched him from the time he pulled all the equipment off to the time he took off there was zero time to stop or slow him down.

It was an accident. One that will stick with me for a very, very long time and I hope others learn from this.....

Lainee,

No one is blaming you so don't get defensive. But I heard 3 different people comment that he was driving rather fast on his previous ATV rides that day and/or the day before. Anyone there could have told him to slow down and I probably wouldn't have said anything to him either if i'd seen him. BUT I bet I will if ever presented with a similar situation in the future... and I hope everyone who read about this would as well.

Nobody has said it but i have to say Congrads to Lee Smithwick who's dog Luke won the open and other dog Molly got a jam. That win gives Luke his FC and an additional 1/2 point will qualify him for the national. Molly seems to be running better and better...looks like she's going to be a player. Bill's done a great job with Luke and he's been a really consistent dog (an really nice looking as well)...glad to see him get the win!!!

1) You didn't wreck....

2) You "signed" (electronically or physically) a waiver of damages when you entered the event.
