Open is a quad with 3 retired. 1st bird down is long left middle retired. 2nd bird is right middle short retired. 3rd bird is a long left retired, almost the distance of the long middle. Then all the way to the right hand side of the test for the flyer. Short retired is probably 150 yards. Left hand, left middle, and right hand flyer are all quite aways out there. 3 over 250 +. Good test though, judges are definitely getting answers. Also, there is an honor. Supposed to be a washout for tomorrow.

As of about an hour ago, there were still about 6 dogs to run the first series. They should be about done or just getting finished. With only the first getting done today I would expect some heavy cuts.

02-28-2009, 04:21 PM
Heard that they had 30 called back in the Open and 9 in the Q.

The trial is at Cooper-Black Recreational Area, west of Cheraw on US 1. There is a sign where you turn left at Juniper Jct, go about 6 or so miles another sign will direct you to the right place. It is a big place, do not hesitate to ask someone where the action is.

So does anyone have to call backs, specifically # 39 Kargo from Fargo. Cell coverage must be spotty at Cheraw. The suspense is starting to get to me. Thanks for any help. Bob

Amateur Finished, (partial results with poor phone service)

1st Place Dog # 25 -Jerald Kaphuis
2nd Place Dog #4 - Newt
3rd Place Dog Unknown- Handler Forest Faulkner
4th Place Dog Unknown- Handler- Elizabeth Dixon

I am not positive about this my phone service is sometimes scratchy at best. After talking to Steve, I am almost glad I was not there this weekend, I understand the weather today was pretty tough. Congratulations to all placements and finishers.

I agree. This past week is the week I am usually down in SC to train and run this trial. I did not and I am happy I was not there. The weather was miserable...

03-01-2009, 05:26 PM
Let's see..... I watch your dog run in the 37degree blowing rain and you're at the Flyers game. You win.

03-01-2009, 05:38 PM
I am partially glad I was not there because of the rain, although I demand a rain check on those oysters....I appreciate you watching JAG, I heard he ran a very nice trial..I do wish I was there to watch it .
