Is this NASCAR? ;)

FOM aka Team Bullet's Crew Chief

if this were NASCAR we would be talkin trash about each others team,saying how your driver is a no talent clown with a famous last name,or how your brand of car is a piece of trash, and how boring the sport is.....Here on RTF we just talk trash about crew chiefs, dog colors, and tell people to GO POUND SAND :D:D

Redneck NASCAR dad regards (Go Team Hendrick)

Congrats to Ted and crew....he is still hogging ribbons ;) and his truck is freaking on fire!!

A special congrats goes out to Lori Morgan and DJ on their Am 3rd! Way to go you two!!!!!!!

Howard - Thanks, we have a handful of greenies this year, hoping to turn them into color eventually, but got to figure out how to get the Freeridin crew out of the circuit first! ;)

Lainee, Flash and Butthead

08-03-2009, 10:07 AM
Way to go to Ted and his crew. They are sizziling hot this year!!!!

08-03-2009, 10:13 AM
Well done Ted, quite a 3 week run for you and Cherylon Loveland, I'm sure she is very proud of all her pupils!!



08-03-2009, 10:27 AM
Oh yeah I forgot one of the most important congrats, although not her first Derby (only her 4th) and not a "pretty" color, but I'm sure if you asked her 'Green is Beautiful!'

CONGRATS to Janice Jones and Amos on their very first FT ribbon, a Derby JAM!!!!!!

Janice and Amos started training with us a few months ago. She has been our club's FTS for many years now and I'm happy to see her make the leap into FTs. This was Amos's last Derby so she will now be making the harderst leap I think for a newbie - Derby to Qualifying. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but Janice and Amos can do it! I'm very proud of the two of them and I look foward to seeing them grow in the world of FTs!

Lainee, Flash and Bullet

I want to put in a plug for Cherylon Loveland, who does not run Field Trials, but works her butt off six days a week, so that her clients can run the dogs and be competitive

Since the National Amateur, in three field trials, my dogs have done the following

Mootsie has Open 3rd, Open 4th, Amateur 1st, Amateur 4th
Mozzie has finished 3 Opens, Open 4th, Open RJ, Open Jam, Amateur Win
Buffy - who is finally healthy after a series of set backs - Amateur 2nd
Nelson - Qualifying 1st, Amateur 4th

John Goettl took first in the Amateur at Colorado Women's with Ozzie, John got a fourth in the Derby with Bee, a young dog owned by Mark Menzie

Ed Aycock's young derby dog, Holland, has placed in 3 derbies and finished in the only other one he has run

Ray Duncan's young qualifying dog, Nitro, has finished two out of three qualifyings

That wide range of success is due in large part to the long hours, and creative work of Cherylon Loveland. Until you have seen the woman at work, you have no idea what hard work is

She is working the young dogs at 5:30 in the morning doing the basics while it is cool, then out in the field by 9-10, doing drill work, then setups by 11, closing out around 6.

My dogs are running hot ... and the credit belongs to Cherylon

08-03-2009, 10:42 AM
and the credit belongs to Cherylon

Ditto to that, there is no harder working nor more dedicated professional retriever trainer.

She has never had the opportunity to keep a group of all-age dogs before, they usually go home to their owners or to other pros.

In addition to the aforementioned, Sylvia McClure's Gracie (Hilltop's High Society) will be heard from as well as Holland's littermate Tubby (I hope).

Way to go Cherylon, you're THE BEST!!!!!!!!

Got this one in the books and just wanted to give a shout out to some great people that helped out at our trial this wekend.
First to Ted Shih, who took on tasks like he was a club member, thanks Ted and congrats to all your dogs for a great weekend.
Next to Lainee, girlfriend, you just stepped right in and helped out like a real champ. You are a great credit to our trial and the FT game.
Also to Larry and Lori Morgan, who came back to our trial from a few years off and welcome them back and hope they continue. They both helped out a lot at the AM to keep it running very smoothly.

Finally to all our help and club members who worked like mules to get this all put together and finished. We had some wait time at the Qual and Derby, but as the threads on RTF have been discussed, that is how it normally goes, at least for now anyway.

If I forgot someone, I am greatly sorry and you all know who you are.

Thanks again to all,

08-03-2009, 03:41 PM

You, John, Dan, Ken and everyone else put on a great trial, some of the nicer weather in years to boot....good BBQ, but someone in the gallery was talking about a pig roast from years ago....mmmmm.

Good job by the Ft. Collins RC! Another one in the books!


08-03-2009, 08:24 PM
Wow, congrats Ted!!! I loved watching moots and mozz in Utah last weekend! Great to hear of Buffy being healthy again!

You too, Lainee, keep up to good work.

08-04-2009, 11:03 AM
Let's not forget Adam Casto who handled Dave Winter's Frankie to First Place in the Derby, beating the top derby dog in the country in the process. I hear this is Adam's first BLUE and I am sure there are many more to follow.

08-04-2009, 01:39 PM
I just showed up to see some (old )friends and watch the big dogs run. Congrats to all the dogs and handlers. I appreciated the opportunity to help out, too. Can't wait for my little guy to grow up so we can be a regular part of this game.
