Open has a 1st series consisting of a quad with 2 long retired & out of order flyer. Not there just reporting what I got on the phone. Great temps for a summer trial! But wind is supposed to be strong as the day progresses. Good luck to all..........

I was hoping you were giving call backs.

I heard that one of the judges had to be taken to the hospital. Not sure who took over the assignment. Hope it is not serious for Mr Towle. Prayers sent for him.

Here's hoping that Mr. Towle is OK and has a quick and complete recovery.

I must confess that this is a scenario I've never considered. Having to replace a judge before completion of a large first series is tough for all concerned.

I understand he had a "slight" stroke (as if any stroke were slight). But the report I got was good news, that he is doing well. Open didn't finish 1st series, dog 35 is first to run this morning. Opinion I got was that about 1/2 the dogs have done good work.

Went to the 2nd with 44 dogs I think. Don't have call backs. 2nd was a poison bird, cross-wind blind. Onsite opinion is that about 1/2 the dogs are doing it. I'll try to get call backs with next report....

Regarding Howie--we hear at this point all is well, however he is in the hospital and being monitored--Field trial committee acted quickly and Central Minnesota Retriever Club (Mentor Club for trial) President Mark Belford stepped in for Howie 10 minutes after we took him to the hospital and the trial went on. AKC rep was on site and was impressed with mechanics of trial, judging, and of course quality of entrants and handlers.

Another side note--Open 94 dogs in the land marks (zero no birds) and 17 in the water marks (zero no birds) Am 64 dogs in the land marks (zero no birds with first time trial shooters) , 17 in the water marks (one no bird), Q 18 dogs in land marks (zero no birds)

one no-bird out of 210 flyers--great work

The West Central Retriever club would like to thank all the members from the mentor club (10 plus) that helped with the trial---in addition the pros, amateurs, and friends of Dan and Casey Sayles and the Morris area club. Finally to the new club--hats off to members and volunteers that have the passion, attitude, and work ethic to start a new club---you worked your hearts out!

Danny Farmer had a helluva streak going in terms of winning or placing in consecutive trials. Been a while since he's not been in the points.

Congrats to all, and best wishes to Howie.

Question. If a dog gets a new owner, would the dog still have his/her AFC title?

A new owner wouldn't change whether or not the dog had earned an AFC. If he earned it, it's his.

But if a National Pickem champ were to get a new dog, he would be stripped of his title and the first runnerup would assume all duties and responsibilities of the former champ. :p
