What I heard was second hand but heard that it was VERY hard and that only 8 out of 33 had done a good job so far.

Qual water series today. #6,7,9,10,11,13,14,24,25,26 back.

1rst series very difficult only 11 of 36 did w/out a handle and most of those were not very pretty.

I believe some of those back to 4th series had handles in 1rst series. I would have liked to make the final cut but much to learn in this game.

Bob,
Thanks for the update. Hopefully we will have somebody calling us with updates today on the Derby, but if anybody else gets news on it we would love to hear.

Thanks,
Marty

Qual water series today. #6,7,9,10,11,13,14,24,25,26 back.

1st series very difficult only 11 of 36 did w/out a handle and most of those were not very pretty.

I believe some of those back to 4th series had handles in 1rst series. I would have liked to make the final cut but much to learn in this game.

It was tight, tight, tight. Someone calculated that from left retired to long center bird was 10 degrees. From long center bird to flyer was 15 degrees. The stand up triple was shot around the horn, left to right with a go bird flyer. The left gun was probably 150 yards, center was 275, flyer was 195. This doesn't include the steep terrain--so distances were farther. Terrain was difficult, cover was deep.

Dogs hunted the flyer due to cover and terrain. Dogs sent for the left bird were to cut the corner of a pond. Once in the pond, the cover on the edge was so high the dog could not see any of the gun stations. Many dogs squared the shore, came up short of the left gun which they couldn't see due to cover and pushed up the hill to the long bird--which they also could not see until they went most of the way up and over a ledge of deep cover. dogs that cheated the water had a better chance of getting that left bird--and many dogs did that.

during the course of the test, the wind was blowing from left to right, then continued to move all the way around so it was in the dogs' faces, until it was blowing right to left towards the end. Also, partway through the test, there were live ducks swimming on the pond that were shot and picked up.

on the land series there were 17 pickups, I marked 8 handles--all handles were called back, and gorilla hunts. As Bob stated, there were only a few dogs that did the test well.

Handlers running the Open heard about the setup and came to see it--so that says a lot about the difficulty. Weather was very nice--overcast and cool to the point we had jackets and I even saw one blanket. However, the sun burst through at about 11 a.m. on friday and temp went to 85 quickly. we still had a good breeze, but it was warm.

Of the callbacks to the watermarks, here is what I noted for work on the 1st series land triple--this is unofficial, so if i made an error i apologize.

Land Triple only:
6-no handles (nice work in 1st series)
7-handle
9, 10--no handles
11--handle
13-handle
14--no handle
24 (very nice work in first series), 25, 26--no handles

Some of the dogs without handles had hunts. I only remember that 6, 24 had nice work. there may have been others, but I didn't note it.

Will be interesting to see who wins!
