Triple ,two retired,long FBD retired in a layout hunting blind.From the flier station,it looked like alot of the dogs were hunting short near a woodpile enroute . Could have been an old training fall....or dogs thought thats where the gunner was retired.I left before callbacks after shooting for 9 hours.We used two new swishy items ....the layout...and a kicker winger for the flier.Saw some thrilling dog work on the series!

AM was three around the horn, left 325, middle retired200, right flyer 125, line was throuhg a 10 ft ditch. All completed first series except 3 (27 back), very doable first series. Water blind close to 400 yds behind bubba gunner (rt side) that sluced the water to the left of the line to the blind, carry and another 200 yds to the blind. Left after 6-7 dogs ran and only saw 1 or 2 good jobs. Will probably be completed in the morning.

Complete results are now posted on Entry Express. I had to sleep 11 hours last night just to recover from the weekend, it was exhausting!
Congrats to both winners!
Thanks to all that actually showed up and ran their dogs!
A big Thank You to the judges! Your efforts and time are greatly appriciated!
Having Marshalled the trial and working at the Open all of the time, I've got to say that Shayne and Glen Carimi's setups were as good as any I have ever seen. They were well thought-out, great use of the terrain, wind and tough! I didn't get to see any of the Am but, I heard that was very tough as well.
I want to thank the flyer gunners; Jay Dufour, Bobby Bordelon, Raymond Little and Big, for their help in spending the entire day in the hot sun or cold wind, as we had both.
