Open is an indented triple in a large open field with moderate pasture grass. Gun 1 is on the left, is a pop and throw and is way out there (thrown left to right). Gun two is the short middle, is a pop and throw and thrown to the right. Gun three is on the far right and is a live flier thrown in (right to left). Guns one and two retire. From the gunners station it looked like it might be an incredibly tight test... but looking from the line it was tight but not incredibly so.

I was shooting at the gun station, saw the first half of the field and could not tell you which black dog did what. Two goldens in the field, one picked up and the other appeared to be handled.

I saw one or two dogs that did very well and lots of others with bobbles here and there.

Pilot and Fly are home getting ready for the National. Pow handled in the open and now we will give the Amateur a shot tomorrow. He needs a win to qualify but I would settle for a finish right now.

I spoke with Meg very briefly and she clearly was very happy with Pipers Q placement. Apparently it was a rough fourth series. Congrats again.

The Amateur looks nasty. Gun 1 throws to the right, Gun 2 is off to the right (tight) and throws to the left . Live flier is off to the left of the converging marks. Guns one and two retire.

I didnt see Don run Keeper but spoke with him afterwards. I cannot recall what he said about Keepers run as we were talking about a breeding.

Tammy Z's little black dog needed a handle and she was a little blue.

I am headed out in a little while to gun for the Open.
Thats all I know.

Derby carried all dogs from second to third series. They set up the third and I heard later it was either scrapped or changed.

Amateur fourth ate some dogs but I did not stay until the end.

Thank you everyone for sharing the excitement with me.....and Mr. Blue. It is my first AA blue and of course my first National. The ride home from Klamath Falls was the shortest ever. I had smiles all the way. Steve got home from Billings and help me get grounded. We entered, made camping reservations, training plans & ordered birds. 4 years ago on my birthday in Billings I got my first blue with Blue in the derby. (We were on the way to the National with Gemni.) I had tears of joy then as I did last Sunday. He has definately been a fun ride. Just gotta remember to cinch the saddle tight & hold on!!!!

Congratulations Missy! Hard work does pay deserve it!
