As of this moment, the area where the trial is being held is under a tornado watch and it's raining buckets, so hard that the effective safe speed for travel is about 25 mph. The Open is supposed to start in 12 minutes. The club is conversing about how to proceed.

More later.

UPDATE

Weather has passed to the east. Trial has still not started as of yet (9:30am est). Will keep you posted as I find out what's next.........

They started running dogs about 10 AM. The judges went with a double land blind ran off a slight hill facing a large bowl with many cover changes and mowed strips. You need to pick up the short blind first, it is out there about 150 yds from the line at the base of a tree and some brush. The blind planter is sitting out in the open to the right side of the blind about 20 yards away facing the blind. The judges instructed the handlers to pick up the short blind first. Then you came back and ran the long blind "under the arc" of the short blind out about 250 yards. Wind has been stron with moments of rain mixed in.
Cross wind/down wind from right to left.
Most dogs are doing the short blind OK, but then to send them back on the same line between the blind planter and the short blind has been interesting.
Some nice workTalley with #86 Duece. Bo Taylor had a nice job with #99.

They just finished running dog #45. Work has varied from excellent to pick ups.

If they don't finish today, they'll only have a handful left to run tomorrow.

I heard that 3 people died in the tornado a couple of miles from the trial grounds. Very tragic.

Hopefully the weather will be better tomorrow.

Open second series is a triple with two retired using hen pheasants in calf to thigh deep cover. Longest dead bird is about 225, next is about 200, flyer is about 180. Apparently the retired birds are "eating the dog's lunch."

More as it becomes available.

Am had less than ideal field to work with. Triple with a loose mom and pop style. Momma to right approx 200. Then big swing to left to 70 yard mark. Then flyer up the middle (poppa). Dog first runs a blind to the right about 100 yards from the "momma" bird and then run all three marks.

All birds are hen pheasants.

I hear it's "tearing them up". 20 yet to run in morning. Pretty windy today.

Ray Voigt who placed in the Open with Charlie Hine's Ranger --- assistant trainer on Mike Lardy's Handjem --- won the Deby with 14 month old "Juice" owned by Jim Harvey.
I don't know the rest of the Derby placements.
