Any news from the Am?

Don't know about third, but fourth was Joe Tonko's Ozzie. Not absolutely sure, but I believe Rorem had JAMs with Aero, Buffy, Yogi and Lilly.

Thanks to the Judges

Open: Northrop Larsen, Steve Helgoth
Amateur: Loren Morehouse, Van Qualls

For their efforts

The Amateur was one of the most entertaining Amateurs that I can remember. The fourth series was a bugger, and a lot of fun to run

Thanks also for the efforts of the Alamo Retriever Club

Tony Allen
Ken Archer
Bruce Bachert
Sue Eley
Mike Page

And some other hard working folks whose names I don't know

Run a field trial in Hondo, Texas with temperatures pushing 80
Wake up in Denton, Texas to driving rain
And looking forward to driving home through the snow

Ah, the joys of Field Trials!!!

Thanks also to the minor stake judges Francis Kennon and Jim Burnett.

The test were challeging and fair, and let everyone play as long as they could.

A BIG thanks to our host Mike and Terry Miller for leting us use their ranch. If you havent run a trial in South Texas you are missing some of the most senic parts of the state.
