Shayne, Good Luck w/ Boogie. As Finn is home as of yesterday-he is a scratch. Sick to my stomach about the whole thing, but thanks to Jerry for offering to run him!

I guess it's back to the pre EE days, you'll need to call the secretary for your number or wait until you see a catalog.

The "New" entry service does not post the running order???? Guess it is back to showing up at 8 am when you won't run for many hours..........:(

Perhaps everyone should call the RFTN office in Milwaukee on Monday to ask about the running order.

Does that mean we have to request our running order by including a postcard with our paper entry? oh great, back to the middle ages of field trials. akc.org says the field trial sec is lee jolley. maybe he can give RO #s to everyone who calls.:confused: ft secs are gonna love taking back that job.:(

Lee or Joe will give you your number when Friday morning - more importantaly - you will be directed to what test to go to first, to keep everyone from hanging out at one test or the other. Something like handlers Pros A,b,c will go to Acadiana first. Everyone else go to Port Arthur. Then everyone will switch. This is JUST HYPOTHICAL - but it is how they have run it in the past.

Joe



Joe is not involved anymore though he may still be a member.
He is involved with Cajun Riviera as we are a Baton Rouge club.
On another note;
I'm talking with Wayne N of the Shreveport RC about doing a 2DQ with us in April.
Our April Q will be an owner/handler and hope to see a lot of folks there.
He is going to bring it up with their membership to see if they are interested.

Yep, they tell the handlers "where to go".

I've been to 2-3 of them and they run pretty smoothly with very little waiting.

If a dog is entered in all three, it's a given that the dog will be running EARLY in one, regardless of the running order drawn.

Not sure how RFTentry plans to do it, but with EE, the FTS for the event-holding club sets the "final draw" and therefore assigns running numbers. Somebody just hasn't finished their job yet, whomever that may be........maybe.......

Nope, I'll call you on that. Miriam's "sick to my stomach" post has no meaning to the rest of "us" unless there is more info.

And she wouldn't have posted it if she didn't want to put something out here in public.

Sorry, that wasn't aimed at you. But if someone brings it up, someone needs to be able to answer to it.

Maybe there shouldn't have been a peep because that can lead to misconceptions without clarification...

Melanie-

This is the 2nd time you've called me out on something & if I thought your intentions were coming from a place of compassion-I'd be happy to PM you & clarify the situation. Since we both know that isn't the case & wasn't the first time-don't tell me that I'm obligated to post anything to this forum.

Like Keith said-it's a small community & it will get around & likely in a variety of miscommunicated forms-which I find sad.

To the folks who were genuinely concerned & asked after Finn-thanks! He's fine & I appreciate your asking because you genuinely care.

Moving along now...

So the place where you entered requires you to navigate to another location to find the running order? :o

That's convenient.......:rolleyes:

64 dogs in one derby, 61 in the other....what's the over-and-under on a triple at least once in both? How about a retired gun?

It's kind of like finding your stake at a field trial when the premium doesn't have a good map and the club doesn't have signs out.

Anybody else notice dogs with the same handlers have back-to-back numbers, or maybe one dog in between the same handler's dogs?

Sure hope they have good marshals at each stake regards, :)

They have great marshalls at the triple DQ. All clubs should have the
grounds and help. The organization is very good. If you have never been
to the triple DQ when you get there they will have a sheet that tells
each handler where they are expected to start. Even if you are number 2
in Port Arthur Derby you might be expected to be at the Q in SLRC. So
the running order is dictated more by getting it done efficiently than what your
actual number in the draw. You still have to run your dogs in the correct order
you may just not start where you expect. It looks to be a great time.

Yep... running #s are pretty much out the window. This will be my 3rd or 4th triple d/q. Last year it rained the entire time. Hoping for better weather this year. Weather, judges, dog work, mechanics.......... the only sure thing that matters is the FOOD!!!

Mark Sehon

I'll be the guy with the LSU cap on. Stop by and introduce yourself. I'll point you to the right direction.

Time management at the 3DQ is at the all time high. Bird placement, not big long marks. Big LONG hunts eat to much time. A tripple in the derby would eat to much time.

I judged the 3DQ last year in the RAIN STORM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Spillway looks great.

Yep....been there, done that....it rained all weekend....the spillway was doing its job, creating some very interesting terrain that would change while the test was going on. Gerard and I had a large time!

Keith,
People just might get the wrong idea.


According to one FTS - the draws for the 3dq came out almost exactly the same for each club. This particular FTS spend hours moving dogs one by one - one place at a time. Had to update (save) after each move. He has also spent a good deal of phone time detailing his problems, concerns and issues to RFTentry personnel.

What would have been helpful would have been if RFTentry had directed folks to look on WRC for the running order....although it's hard for me to understand WHY you have to leave one site to go to another to find the running order that's been faxed to RFTentry to put up.

Jimmy, do you have administrator's rights to do post the running order on RFTentry for your club?
