Open is a quad. Shot long to short. Flyer third bird down. Two long birds retire as dog returns with go bird. Watched 30 dogs or so and quite a few were doing it including some nice jobs.

Minor stakes judges Louie Churack and Clark Emery were awesome. Fair challenging tests for both derby and qual. The marshal Cathryn Barker was very nice to run under.

My only concern is safety in Fargo ditch. When run at 90 degree angle it is not fun to see your young dog fly through the air as he hits hidden mud bank at full throttle. I'm not sure what club can do whether dirt work or creative mowing to let dog know what they are about to hit.
Please discuss your options at your next meeting.

Will walk the line myself next time I see the famous Fargo ditch.

Bob,

Thanks for the compliment. It was a pleasure to see all the fantastic dog work, including yours.

I would like to ease your mind regarding the ditch. There is no "hidden mud bank". There is simply a wet bottom area and longer lush grass in the bottom of that ditch. Your dog tumbled as it hit the longer grass at the bottom. The terrain is even and safe. Dogs have been run in that ditch for over fifty years and there has not been one incident of a dog being injured, that I am aware of.

I have a very hard charging dog as well, and I routinely send her across that ditch. I would not send any dog-mine, yours or anyone elses-- into a "hidden mud bank".

I have seen my own dogs tumble in various situations over the years, and I know exactly how you feel. It is horrifying to see and my heart sunk until I saw the dog back at the line, unharmed.

Still, I appreciate your feedback and will bring up your concern at our next meeting.

Thanks again for your compliment and thanks for coming to the NDRC.

Clark,

Thanks for your concern. I assumed a mud channel as it took a bit to clean the mud off the little guy. I'm sure it was wet in low area where he tumbled. He probably thought he could fly over the tall stuff and get to bird faster.

I guess angles as much as possible across the ditch would help. Thanks for information on the famous ditch. Maybe I can walk the whole thing next trial and get a feel for it.

I noticed the results on EE only have qual and derby.
