The only Dyna I could see entered on EE was DYNA SUPER GLIDE, Missy Bell and Steve Komph. CONGRATS to Missy and Steve if it was their Dyna who got 2nd in the Qual. I hope it was.

Dyna had a very successful Derby career in west coast trials. 32+ pts. I say + because I stopped keeping track at 32 pts.

Helen in N. Calif.

I just heard from John Robinson and Cheryl Talley that their dog Gus, handled by Eric Fangsrud, won the derby. Gus is a Golden and this put him on the National Derby list. He's just a few derbies and has 2 wins and a 4th.

CONGRATULATIONS to John and Cheryl -- well deserved.

Just so that tshuntin Travis Keen can complain some more- my dog was entered in both trials- entry fees for both clubs along with many others from out of state.
The clubs hopefully appreciate the entries, since it takes at least 150 to break even.
Also, while he is preaching about others, there are many, MANY on RTF who put MANY hours into trials voluntarily, both as officers, FT committee, marshalls and just generally helping out without thanks.
So, travis, next time someone makes a comment you dont agree with,just bear that in mind.

Labhauler, thanks for calling me out but, if you are going to, start out with typing my name correctly. It is Travis Skeen and I don't remember complaining about anything or anybody. I assume you are calling me out per my post in regard to the N Utah FT last week where I commended the FT Secretary for getting up the results pretty close to 24 hours after the event ended. (better than I actually do with our events) Obviously you mis-read my post last week, so here it is for you to re-read.


John, thanks for getting the results posted. I can only imagine how hectic and crazy your day has been today after spending 4+ days working your butt off from dusk to dawn up in the mountains away from everything including your family, work, responsibilities, phone, email, etc..etc... Heaven forbid it took you till tonight to get the results posted. I would not have got them posted this quickly if I were in your shoes. Thanks.

That sure does not sound like I am complaining about anything. Although I am not directly part of the GSL or N Utah clubs and I do not wish to speak for them but, you are right I am positive they do very much appreciate all the enties, judges, workers and everything/everybody else that it takes to put on a test. Never did I or will I doubt that. Do you appreciate the clubs? I simply was thanking someone who I consider a friend (who I didn't get to see over the weekend) for his efforts in getting the results posted for ALL of US to see and that it was an appreciated effort knowing what he had been doing the last four days and imagining what he (and many others) came home to after being away from civilization for several days.

Also trust me when I say I know very much first hand what it takes to put on a test and how truly appreciated all those people who generously give their time, talents, and efforts to make a trial/test a success. I understand this part of it actually more than I do what it takes to get a dog to the top of our games. I have spent more time dedicated to building and running a club over the last 7 years than I have competing my dogs by a long way. I have done every part of organizing, hosting, and running a test, have you? I very much understand the selfless efforts of these people and realize they/we voluntarilly do it because we love the game (without them our sports would be dead) but, for you to say they do it without thanks is an absolute shame. That is disgusting. Now I understand people don't do it for the thanks and pat on the back but, for you to say they do it without getting thanked is very sad. I know my club does not treat the backbone of our club and events that way, does yours? If an effort is not made to thank all the people that help make it happen that is unbelievable and very sad.

If you had a dog entered in both trials I can very much understand and appreciate your excitement and anticipation in finding out the results of the trial. I would be very anxious too if I were in your shoes. I hope your dog did well. What dog was it, maybe I can make a call and let you know how it did? Shouldn't the person who ran your dog tell you how they did though? What did you do before the wonderful days of entry express allowing the clubs to get results posted so quickly?

Labhauler, thanks for trying to call me out on what I see as a non-issue and definitely not something I was trying to start anything with (or complain as you say). If you care to discuss this further with me feel free to pm, email or call me and I will gladly talk to you further.

labhauler, I have known and worked with Travis over the past year on a few events that him and his club have put together. If you have ever met Travis, I'm assuming you haven't by your comments, then you would know that he has put a lot of effort to keep this sport alive in our area. I have always been treated with respect and thanked many times by Travis and other club members. I have yet to hear him complain about all of the time he spends away from his family while putting a test or training group together.
I'd be glad to talk to you as well on Travis' behalf.

Where the @#$^ did that come from? Care to explain yourself? Because you obviously don't have a clue what your talking about and you surely don't know Travis KEEN.

The above comment as well as the whining about NURC results not being posted the morning after the trial are completely uncalled for and inappropriate. I am sure the clubs appreciates the entries, but I don't think they appreciate the obnoxiousness. Maybe a chat with whoever is running your dog is in order regarding the prompt reporting on your dog's performance to alleviate the apparent anxiety that it creates. My understanding is that the clubs are only obligated to report to the AKC; the rest is a courtesy, which should be treated as such.

Wow....well thanks you guys/gals for your kind words.:oops: As far as me, I am nobody special, just someone who loves these dog sports and dogs and who hopes to give more than I take. There are a lot of great people around here that do as much or more than me but, thanks again for your kind words.

As far as labhauler, he/she probably didn't mean any offense. Maybe was just having a bad day or was just really anxious to hear results or something like that. No biggy.

Back to the thread. Congrats to all you who had a fun and/or successful weekend up in our BEAUTIFUL UTAH Mountains.

i think the "tone" of your electronic voice sounded or was perceived to be cynical. labhauler seems to be responding to that.

i agree that travis does and has done a lot, but sometimes can come off wrong to some people.

I am not even one of the "locals" but know Travis and have the highest respect for him and the amount of work he does to keep this sport going. He is one of the very good guys, young, works his rear off, and one of those we need in there to keep this sport alive into the future.

One problem with the internet is you cannot hear the nuances in a "conversation" that you can if talking directly to persons. This sometimes causes misinterpretation of what someone is trying to convey----no one knows better than I since my humor can be somewhat -- I would like to say "subtle!"

What I can say is that if you meet Travis, you will like him and will quickly see what a very hard worker he is and how much of himself he gives for others in this sport.
