The call backs for the derby are 4,5,6,8,9,11,12,14,15,17,18,20,22
Ran a double then a single. 22 dogs called back 13. most of the dogs that didn't get called back hunted on the back side of the second mark of the double. Long single up the middle.
Derby, am and open all started very late 10:30-11:00 due to fog.
Am was taking about 7-8 min a dog. long hunts on the middle bird. dogs could be 2 feet from the bird and not wind it.
I am back home ( dog 16 in the derby) so that is all the reports I can give.

Think there were 38 dogs called to the water blind in the Open. Sorry, don't know the numbers.
Don't think the derby finished today. Late start as noted above.

5" of rain on Friday made conditions & the work difficult in the open & Q. Fog made for a late start to the Am, derby & open on Sat.
Complete Q results as I recall were:
1st - D. Houlihan - Ready, Congratulations 2 blues in a row!
2nd - (J. Kent/C. Ledford) - Maggie, Congratulations QAA!
3rd - D.Didier - Hatch, we keep making progress
4th - J. Bandel - Cali
RJ - D. Didier - Gen, still running good after 2nd last week
Jam - A. Heath - Lucy
(most difficult water blind I've ever seen in a Q, but a nice set of tests made very difficult in the rain).
In the Am all three birds in the 1st series were difficult, no gimme birds from the 420 yd long bird, the 330 yd middle retired or the 218 yd flyer across the water. There were dogs lost on all 3 birds but some excellent work for several. Same could be said for the open 1st.
Cooper-Black is always tough but a very nice place to run.
