Woooo Whoooo....go dog #4 in the Derby! He is running his first and last Derby today though he turns two in September. ;)

I hear it's been raining buckets. Any chances of the Open
(100 dogs) getting the first series done by Saturday afternoon?

I'd say 2p Saturday if I were a betting man...and I'm not.

Steady rain now.....I'd say they MIGHT be halfway through the Open. They're doing the best they can under the conditions.

There have been about 10 scratches in the Open so that'll help somewhat.

Good to hear that the Open is moving along. Looking at the radar and forecast, it looks to be a long weekend. I'm sure the N Bama RC folks and judges will do the best they can under the conditions they've been dealt.

Open will not finish today. Ran my first derby today and man I see now how folks get hooked on the FT game. It was a fun change from HT and the dog did well and thought he should have made the third series{haha} but I still had a ball and have alot of respect for the FT venue and the judges were great.

Open got about 2/3 through. Test got tougher after they shut down for about an hour after a hard downpour with water standing in the field....a quad with three retired....momma/poppa in the middle of the field at about 100 yds.....long gun right, 30 degrees right of momma bird at 150 yds....simulated flyer off to left of poppa bird 40 degrees at 160 yds/they stand throughout whole test......order is momma/angle back right...right gun/angle back left......poppa bird/angle back left....sim flyer/flat left.....it was tough early, eased up with a wind shift, got tougher after a downpour, then the last three dogs to run did VERY well (Raider was one of 'em, Franco).

Weather is supposed to ease up Saturday.

Thanks for the report KG.

All I heard from him today was how much fun he was having with T-Boy at the Derby so, maybe can do well in both stakes. If not, that's Field Trialing!

Careful. I've heard that it only takes trying it once to become addicted.

I'm not sure I understand the term "contrary mark", would some one please explain? are you saying "inverted"?

thanks.

Typically, 2 down the shore marks are both thrown down the shore away from the line in training. In the 4th series they stated that the go bird was thrown "contrary" - meaning back toward the line and contrary to what you would normally do in training.

Hope this clarifys.

Congrats Lee.

Hope contrary marks like that are not going to be a fad in the Derby and Q
