Does anyone have the results of the Am, which finished yesterday?

The only information I have is that no JAM's were handed out in the Qual. I'm a bit livid as the dog that placed 4th had a handle in the 4th series due to over running the mark. One of our dogs, a relative unknown on the west coast, had a small hunt on the same bird , all within the area of the fall, but no handles throughout the tests and never even got a JAM. To me, that is a rather blatant "mistake". I'd like the judges to explain that one. What bothers me is that lately I have been reading about a number of judging "mistakes" that cost the owners of dogs a lot of money. Would anyone else like to comment on this issue?

Sounds frustrating....but isn't that why we play this game? :) Do you have any of the results for any of the stakes?

Diane, No I don't. Only what I reported that was reported to me. I was going to be there today but we had a snake safe training event here and I couldn't leave. Probably good thing I didn't go. I am pretty easy going until it comes to injustices. And no, it wasn't Trooper. He went out in the 3rd series for ping ponging the water. Oh, and there was a Golden who did an absolutely flawless job on the test and was thought to be the winner but in actuality, only placed 3rd.....

Did anyone ask the marshal to check with the judges to see if there WAS a mistake?

No, I asked if that occurred but Magic's handler decided under the circumstances, it was best to not broach the subject. He was pretty disgusted at that point. I, on the other hand, would not have been quite so diplomatic.

It would be interesting to know what "circumstances" prevented the asking of a simple question.

If a participant chooses not to use a mechanism available to them to find out if there was a mistake with callbacks or placements, that's up to them. It's interesting that they'd complain about not getting a Jam ribbon in the Qual with no handles in the trial and then NOT try to find out what happened. If everything is as described, then surely there must have been a mistake. Sounds like he didn't even TRY to be diplomatic and make an effort.

One reason i dont want to judge any more u cant make every one happy. More than likely the people u upset will judge u one day and hold it against you. I was asked twice this weekend to judge, and my answer was i am thinking of not judging any more. Whats funny is most of the complaining comes from people that dont want to step up and judge or a pro's client standing in the back ground not knowing what they r talking about. Lots of people talk bad about the pro's but i have never had a problem with one since i have been judging i think they understand more than people think.... OK sorry for the highjack.

I guess I need to clarify. The Pro that handled Magic was not complaining. He simply stated the facts as he saw them to me. I'm the one complaining based on what he stated. And, as Jason said, since he is a Pro, and was not in the best frame of mind to approach anyone at that time, it was probably best that he did just leave. If the judges truly made a mistake, or if there was partiality involved, or if they don't take good enough notes, then it is on their shoulders. I am just stating that their decisions are questionable and especially in light of the fact that they did not see fit to give anyone a JAM, not that they just didn't give it to one dog that someone felt deserved it, i.e.; finishing a test with no handles and still coming up with zip.

There has got to be more to this story. I would have asked if dog was clean and a handle was placed and my dog was not even finished. I would have done this for the sake of the client. Judges do make mistakes....... and you are allowed to inquire to make sure of that.

Funny I thought JAM meant : "Judges award of Merit".
Not the Pro told the owner it was a bad call by the Judges and he thought he deserved a JAM... Hmmmmm. Since when does the handler decide...

Just saying...

I dint think you are getting the whole story. Talk to somebody else who saw your dog run the last series.

I dint think you are getting the whole story. Talk to somebody else who saw your dog run the last series.

Better yet, talk to someone who saw your dog run the whole trial. How many times has someone felt slighted whose dog ran a decent last series but was squarely mediocre through the first three. Judging, and placements, should be cumulative.

In an Amateur last summer. no one got a JAM except one that handled, because every dog cheated the water in the last series. It depends, and you have to be there.

No other results from folks who were there? I've seen two of the owners who placed in the derby post elsewhere last night or today. Surely they know the rest of the placements at least in that stake and would be kind enough to post them?

Thanks!
