Q did not finish water blind. Lots of lightening rolled in a little after 3:00. Open has about 17 dogs to run in the am. Still raining. Forcast 3-5 inches between now and noon Sunday. Hopefully the lightening will leave the area. Although its still rumbling outside.
Long retired of open is thrown hip pocket to flyers. Right hand retired is trown towards fence and dogs are behind a mound looking at a somewhat obstructed view of bird.

Don't know why, the person I was talking with was getting ready to run the Am water marks.

Lot of rain Friday & Saturday, probably a lot of cathing up to do.

UPDATE; 3 dogs did the Am water marks without handling. Waiting on Open results.

Congrats Lanie on Bullet's 4th.:cool:

This was the last trial for my dog Raider, he is going back on the sofa after having spent 7 months on it last Summer, duck seson and then only to run a few Spring trials. Back to squirrel/cat patrol and the good life.

I thought it nice for him to finish his career with an Open JAM and a 3rd in the Am, good boy.

Won't be long and we'll be hunting ducks again.;-)

Results on EE.

Thanks to all the judges, workers and contestants!

Congratulations to the winners and placements!

Sunday's weather was as great as Saturday's was terrible. All stakes finished well before dark in spite of Mother Nature.

Another trial is in the book and I remember why we only do this once or twice a year.

Bone tired regards

Congratulations to Lee Jolley and his grand old lady, Jolie. It's great to see such a talented pair of veterans shine in a really tough test. Kudos to Chip Miles and his good dog Hank for their second place finish.

My congratulations also go out to Ken Barton for his dog Zeke's Qual win with Ryan Brasseaux. That's a second and a first in consecutive weeks for this talented dog.

My congratulations to Rob Erhardt for his Derby win with Bill McKnight's good pup, Emmitt.

This was a trial plagued by rain, wind and poor visibility for much of the time, and the winners here were real survivors. Congratulations to all.

Thanks guys and gals, but I had nothing to do with this Open placement, other than wearing out the battery on my cell phone with all the texting to get updates!

Thanks goes to Mark Edwards and my Butthead - they did the work, all I did was try and not have a heart attack waiting on updates!

Congrats to Jimmy and Rip (RJ in Open) and Brandon and Bunny (JAM in Open). Also a congrats to Kevin and Caddy for their 4th place in the Am!

Also thanks to Brandon and Kevin for the texting all weekend...it sucks not being there!

Lainee, Flash and Bullet

Huge congrats to Buttlett and Mark, and to you Lainee for not breaking down under the stress!

Can anyone explain the reasoning for a 600 yard blind that was supposedly in the AM? Not casting any stones here, I just would like to know what circumstances required that set up to get answers. I would feel like I was not even working with my dog at that distance and I'm sure he'd need a gps to get back;)

Carol,

I don't believe the blind was that long - I think it was a joke...trust me if a blind was that long, it would of already been spread across the FT grapevine already and the bus would of run over the judges in the main forum, locked thread, threat of law suit, etc, etc...
