Excellent bird placement for the 1st and 2nd series in the qualifying. First series was "just a double." No one retired

The Open bird placements were awsome also. Did not see the Amateur set up. 2 Retired

Congratulations, everyone! I think that win puts Band just a 1/2 point away from his AFC.

I can't help but get a little sentimental about Jim's Derby win. That makes Buddy's mom, Torch, an Outstanding Dam. She was such a good girl. :cry:

Sentimental for Jim as well I imagine since Buddy's grandma, his Peach, still holds the record as high point Derby Golden bitch.

Jim, I haven't seen Buddy since last year in Missouri. Have any pictures of him now? I thought he was a good looking dog then. I'd like to see what he looks like now. I told you guys I liked his style then, too. I know it was too early to tell, but...................... Nice dog.

'nother note is Martha Glenn with a JAM in that derby, with Chase.
Trifecta's Steeplechase Bet, who is by Judy's "Ranger" and out of Lisa & Grace's Trifecta's Bet on Me-"Em", who won the double header at the 2006 GRCA Nat'l Specialty in Mo. last year.

Hey Keith, half an open point ain't to shabby. Good going.

Thanks Howard....those things don't grow on trees, do they!!! ;-)

Thanks to you, Dan, as well.

Gotta give full credit to Bo Taylor and Lynn Troy of Alecia Ridge Retrievers. They did ALL the work to turn this "washout" into an All-Age animal. Bo was the only pro to place a dog in this open, and if you look on EE, you'll find the competition was TOUGH. I'm EXTREMELY proud of Lynn and Bo and and just as proud to be associated with them. Bo did a masterful job of helping "Dude" remember the long memory bird of a TOUGH quad with two retired. It took some finesse and focus, and they put it together to pull out the fourth.

I watched Band run all four series and after the fourth, there was only one dog that could have beaten him...and that dog got second after a gut hunt on the flyer.

Kudos to the Snowbird Retriever club on a well-run trial. This area of south Georgia is about to become the Mecca of retrievers in the south with both pros and amateurs. Wouldn't surprise me to see a National Open held there someday.........

Thanks to all who have congratulated Buddy, and my congratulations to Keith and all who placed and JAMed.

This was my first time to enter the Snow Bird trial and my first time to see the grounds. To give credit where credit is due, I can recall only one or two trials that were as well run as this one. The folks did a truly outstanding job, and the grounds were what judges and handler dream about in their fantasies. I will not try to list all who I noted working the trial but will mention one individual. Because we bombed out in the big dog stakes early I spend most of the weekend at the minor stake watching the young dogs. Ialso noted that Lynn Troy marshaled both minor stakes as well as run dogs and I do not recall anyone working any harder at a trial.

After my remark last week about the Goldens and no water I must stand corrected. The land owners had spent a considerable chunk of change running wells so there was not only water plenty of excellent water. Again the derby is the one stake a watched start to finish, but of the eight marks six were water marks.

Now in the interest of taking this back to being a Golden thread, I saw some outstanding young Golden Retrievers. Not to take away from the accomplishments of the known Goldens, but to mention some new names.

Bait mentioned Martha Glennís, Chase, Trifectaís Steeplechase Bet. While a bit shy in training and experience departments yet, the boy can mark and I will be surprised if he does not become a big blip on the radar screen in another year or so.

Bev and Jerry Burnsí Little Bit of Gold Dust (Burnsí Golden Phoenix x Ida Redís All The Way Maye) finished a tough amateur and younger brother Goldbriars Copper Bullet owned by Joe and Dorothy Wattleworth took second in the qual. Both certainly to be heard from again, and I hear that there are six or eight more siblings on pro trucks.

For those fairly new Golden fans who may not recognize the name Joe Wattleworth, back in the 1970s he owned a Golden named FC AFC Tigathoeís Magic Marker who I believe is still the all time high point field trail Golden female.

Bottom line, Snow Bird was a very fun trial and I got to see some very good young Goldens.
