Open still has 40+ dogs to run first series tomorrow. First series is a quad.

Amateur still has dogs to run first series tomorrow. First series a triple with an out of order flyer.

Qual will run water series tomorrow.

Rain held off most of the day until the last 30 minutes.

so, what was the hold up in the Open? They only ran half their dogs, meaning that is all they will get ran tomarrow also. WOW. Maybe I will drive up in the morning, just for kicks.

Just a LOT of dogs and a big quad first series. No problem with the weather or anything like that.
I wasnt there this a.m. so dont know what time they started.

But them's the breaks.

They were given strict orders for everyone to be off the property by dark (i.e., no airing/feeding dogs, etc) so the judges were probably given an early cutoff time which probably shortened what would normally be deemed a "normal" day.

haha, sorry melanie, that is not the case. If you have 80 dogs, and set up a 17 minute test, do the math, 16hrs +. My reporter on the ground told me that he was in the field for 9hrs today.:o Knowing him, it was severly cutting into his "jack time". Said he was about to start taking hostages around 3p.m.:D

haha, sorry melanie, that is not the case.

Um, yes, that is the case. I was with Tammy and Meg the day before yesterday and they were discussing how they could allow for folks to have time to air their dogs and still be off the property by dark.

Whether they were time consuming tests or not, the day was cut shorter than normal. That's all I was saying.

I hear the unions in Cali are pushing for more jack time.

On a 15 minute per dog test stopping at 5:00 or 5:30 p.m. doesnt make a heck of lot of difference when you have another 40 dogs to run. Or with the Q when all they had to run were the water marks Sssaturday. So calling a day cut shorter than normal by stopping at 5 p.m. rather than 5:30 - which may not even be the case as it starts getting REALLY dark at 5:30 p.m. - doesnt fit the picture.
Anyway, the Q finished today and the Derby is under way.
The Open started the land blind - at least everyone thought it was that - at around 4:15 p.m. 36 dogs back. I am sure callbacks will posted.
Am was running their water blind this afternoon.

I dont have any callbacks - sorry.

Open ran12 dogs on land blind today, it is moving quickly now and getting many squigly marks. AM starts 4th with 10 dogs tomarrow. Don't have Q placements in front of me, but Diesel won the Q, Owner Kippy, Handler Sargenti. Billy is now "king of the Q" LOL

what a miserable morning/day.

AM results.

1st. Ryder, Dave Terry

2nd. Chad, Steve Bechtel Jr. (Qualifies for Nat. AM)

3rd. Breeze, Roger Fangsrud. (completes AFC)

4th. Rascal, Ray Goodrich

Don't have Derby Results. I left after 5 dogs in the open had ran. 19 back to 3rd and 4th.

Two dead bird's (two down the shore) birds thrown, then they retire while blind is ran to the left. Not much of a blind (unless there isn't a bird planted:eek:) Then come back and run the marks. Lots of trouble in the first 5 dogs. I saw 2 pick ups, 1 handle, one nice job and the one dog that didn't have a bird planted at the blind. That will be rough on the dog, after it got a "NO HERE" only to find out that there wasn't a bird. That dog will run last. It was taking around 20 mins a dog, I think they should finish any minute now.......least I hope.

Ray Goodrich was a dominant amateur in field trials when I was a college student, he is a wonderful man, a lifetime contributor to field trials, nice to see him still competitive.

You 're so right Ed, Ray is a wonderful man. I believe he may have told me recently that he's 90. I may be mistaken but if not he's close or even older. Either way he is a true gentleman, I know if he were a viewer of this site he would tell you thank you, as I will pass on to him your congratulations.

I remember the first time I met Mr Goodrich ( I was in high school) some 35 yrs ago and got to see the his first Rascal (NAFC FC Rays Rascal) since my brother had a son of his , John Rex Rascal....Mr. Goodrich is a very nice man

Trivia question : isnt Ray's Rascal the grandsire or great grandsire of Lean Mac

There is a person older than Dr. Ed who is still alive? That's AMAZING.
