Del Bay Retriever Club will be having a Master Hunt test this spring, March 20, 21 and 22, 2009 at the Stonesifer Farm near Dover, DE. It is a double header for Master, one starting on Friday and the second starting on Saturday. A single senior begins on Saturday and a single Junior on Sunday. Due to one of the judges having to take the written AKC test, his approval as a judge has been held up and the announcement on EE has been delayed. Hopefully he passes the test and all is well with the AKC.

What do you think the land and water temperature is going to be down there in March? In New England it is cold. Snow?

Waters a little cool then, but not freezing either. I have always wondered why this test is so early for a somewhat northern area. I think you'll see lower entry numbers due to the test date. Most of us up here have not had our dogs in the water for real training that time of year.

Lois, you mean our last master judge is off parole? Wait a minute, off probation, that's it.

Bob, he's bunking in with me for the test (unless you give entre for the other "bunkhouse" down the road) and I just don't want to be bothered by the ankle bracelet going off at all hours upsetting the dogs.

Think the concern from the Chessie contingent is the water won't be cold enough, Bob. In which case, Charlie's prepared to call in a couple of trucks from Seaford Ice & Cold Storage to "salt" the ponds.

Well considering we have no water here, only ice, we certainly have not been doing any "water" work. With the current trend in temperatures, I doubt we will see water until at least April. The past few years some of our worst ice storms have occurred in March. I think I will wait a month or so before committing to a HT.

Mike, you crybaby. If you enter, I will.

I will even sign up to marshall, if they will have me. You can be my assistant. I will teach you some of my moves!

Hey, Bob I signed up :razz:

If anyone wants to come in from out of town, I have a small Inn down the street I use for a hunting club with a couple of kennels that will be empty.

Drew I might take you up on the offer. Am I from far enough away to be considered out of town.

I was just throwing bumpers off my pier yesterday and had Thor busting through the ice to get him ready for the test.

Lisa what are these moves you speak of????

To anyone from any distance coming Drew's offer is something to consider. First it is very close to the grounds. Second the lodge is very nice and comfortable. Drew runs a first class operation with an unbelieveable hunting club/dog training facility/kennel/upland hunting preserve. And of course I am a member of the delmar waterfowl hunting club. If we can get LVL to come down maybe she will give some special training on rocket surgery LOL

For free, I will even throw in my new DVD "How to fail a Master Test in Five Minutes or Less". Check out my infomercial, it's the latest craze.

Those of you concerned about the water and air temps should consider the positive and not just the negative aspects of running you dog(s) on the first days of spring in Delaware. All dogs in our group that trains all winter in Delaware are more than anxious to enter the water, even on days immediately following an ice out. If anything, they are over anxious given the opportunity. The vegetation at this time of the year is sparse. No thick stuff to bust through or avoid or in which to loose sight of your dog. The judges are usually in a good mood after a long winter layoff. Cooler temperatures are better than hot temperatures on the handler. If your dog hunts waterfowl with you, he gets another day to do the things he loves.

Sounds like the handlers need to toughen up some and not the dogs.

I agree, people should focus on the positive.

For instance, I am positive Gopher will break on the first bird, so I am not at all concerned about water temps. It is what it is!

But you can still stay and marshal--in a tutu to show your toughness if you like. Also, few are aware that Charlie runs DelBay's marshalling academy, which has produced by far the most marshals of any retriever club or maybe even US county in existence, and who knows but if you approach him nicely, you might even rate adjunct marshal lecturer...

I wonder if Wal-Mart carries camo tutus. Bet they do. I know they carry 3" camo pumps.

Hey, we could start a pool. Will Gopher leave on the first bird down, the second bird down, or wait for the third bird? Could be a real money-maker for Del Bay!

Why sure you could--not to mention the test grounds back right up to the casino, should you want to partner on the dodge. Enrollment in DelBay's Chas. A. Lesser Marshalling and Duckblind Manners Academy is also comped if you participate.

For those that were concerned about cold water, big training day today and none of the dogs complained at all. Hunt test is still two weeks away. Plenty of time for water to warm up more. Come on down and have some fun.
