Qual has pretty tight triple with long middle retired. Many handles and pickups. My source says barely a handful have done it.

Qual has 17 back for the second series, only 3 good jobs. 8 dogs did the test without a handle, 13 were picked up. Some very long hunts too.

14 dogs back for the water blind.

Today conditions are cold and windy, no rain. Wind is gusting so hard that at least one dog cannot hear the whistles on the blind and is gone out of sight. Wicked weather. People are bundled up with stocking caps and layers. Dogs are shivering.

I am told the pond where the Restricted is running is full of rose bush plants and nasty stuff. No wonder the dogs don't want to get in there.

Here is the setup with notes from Friday:
Restricted is a very tough double with a short retired and a very long blind. all birds are hen pheasants and all require dogs to swim. cover is that nasty rose bush stuff. lots of tough terrain, a quad road runs through it, lots of nasty rose thorns--very difficult. we are on a rain delay now. As of 1 p.m. on Friday, 14 dogs have run and 4 of those 14 have run the blind. Others have either picked up, or handled so much that the judges didn't allow them to run the blind.

Of the 14 that have run, I show (unofficially) #21, 23, 26, 30 got to run the blind. If things don't improve weather wise, we may not get done with this series today.

Early on we had wind which helped with scenting. Then, we had no wind and dogs couldn't find the short retired--even the ones that had the guts to get across the pond for it couldn't come up with it and hunted and hunted and hunted. Even with handling, some had to have bird boy help to find that pheasant.

Congrats to Doug Grimes & Dr Ed on the Q win, and to Mackey's and the rest too. Heard the water marks were all-age tough--difficult with re-entry off of multiple points and cross wind.

Restricted--this a.m. maybe 6 dogs were allowed to run the blind. Not sure all of them will be back as some of the blinds were choppy even though marks were ok. Wind kept on gusting throughout the morning. A couple of dogs couldn't hear whistles and went out on blind after doing nice marks.

Am just finished the first series land marks and will set up a land blind.

No callbacks on Open or Am yet.

If anyone has the rotation for the Restricted, please post. I heard there was discussion between the judges as to whether this test was the water marks and water blind, or if they would more water work. I have not heard what the 2nd series is going to be.

1st Al, Doug Grimes

Extra special congratulations to my very good friend, training buddy, and co-owner of Trumarc's Reverend Al!!!

Doug and Leslie raised Al and we sent him off for young dog training which did not work out as well as either of us had hoped. He came home 14 months ago a mess. Then Doug lost his young dog Hef, who he loved. I told Doug to take Al and hoped he would help Doug recover from the grief of losing Hef to lymphoma before he was 3. Doug has trained Al almost exclusively for the past 14 months and I hope that his progress will continue.

Goooood Dog Al!!!!!!!!!

Amateur callbacks to waterblind on Sunday a.m. 22 dogs back, 14 dropped after crosswind land blind. Setup was to come to the line, gunner 175 yds out in field shoots popper, second guy in white coat about 50 yds from the line. Line to the blind runs on right side of short gun and left side of long gun with end at around 200 yards. Strong, gusting wind was blowing left to right so if the dog flares the short gun, casts to get back on line are into the wind.

Amateur callbacks to water marks on Sunday afternoon. 11 back after waterblind (started the blind with 22) with two gunners on first point who sleuce into a mud bank of an island. Dog is to miss pt with sleuce gunners, miss an island, get on next point (2 feet on land required), cast off and swim to shore. Run down shore to bird. The sleucing really got to the dogs. Even with no bird used, they really jazzed up. Wind was very calm to begin with, then came up as the test went on making it harder for dogs to hear whistles.

Fourth series was very hard and very fun to run.
JAMS (unofficial):
Abby/Dan Hurst Handle
Jr/Sharon Gierman Handle
Tess/John Skibber Handle
Jacki/Jean Wu
Maggie/Mike Molthan

4th Series was a triple with 2 retireds. Long bird was about 350-400 yards out in front of the line with a lay-out blind retired. The first third was across a slew area of swimming/running water, and the rest swimming with significant crosswind across a big piece of water. Ted said something about having "cojones" to do that one. Short retired was angled to the right of the line--about 225 yards across that slew with a layout blind thrown in towards the line to the long bird. Some of the dogs were sucked to the other side of the dike area on that short retired--towards a wooden duck blind. The flyer was to the right of the line straight away at about 75 yards shot onto the land. I'm not real good at distances, so could be more or less. IMO it was a well-thought out test with lots of meat, the flyer on land and the running water short retired, so all 11 dogs could run while it was still light out.

23 of the 64 started were titled (FC, AFC).

What a fun Am. Thank you to Ron Geels and Rose Country for putting on the trial. If you have put on a trial or hunting test, you can begin to appreciate the work involved.
