Extreme fog delayed start until 10 a.m. or so.

Open-triple with 2 retireds. Long gun down the middle thrown left at approx 325 yards. Line to the long retired is through water up front, then cut the corner of a brushy area and angle across the field. Left gun thrown right at approx 250 yards. Line to left retired is open area to woody area, push off a small mound at about 50 yrds, more cover and keep going. Flyer shot (BOOM BOOM) to the right into water at about 20 yards. What little/occasional breeze we have is blowing across the left retired gun. If the dogs get a breeze, they wind the left retired--which a couple have done as the lost their way and went for the long retired as second bird. So far I've heard 4 pickups--listening from the parking lot. We've run about 10 dogs with one no-bird.

Qual is started, but am not there to provide details.

No big hunts whatsoever on that flyer! I believe we only had one early hunt (amazing), 11 or so pickups.

32 back for land blind on Sat. We finished running around 6 p.m. and the judges decided not to start the landblind.

Open callbks-unofficial--2 4 5 7 9 11 13 15 20, 22 through 28, 30 33 35 38 46, 47 through 51, 54 through 57 59 60.

I am pretty sure the Q ran the waterbllind, and didn't start the water marks. I'll see if I can get those callbks on Sat.

Open landblind was a poison bird thrown to left. Past the poison bird on the left of the line to the blind, there was an inlet of water. The "perfect" line to the blind was to the left of a small bush that was at the end of that bush, with the dog disappearing into the inlet momentarily, and then popping out somewhere either on line or to the left. run, run, run and find the end. The end was hard to find in the early light, and became easier as the sun came up. We started on time today. It rained in the night, cooled things down so very little fog today.

Open callbacks after landblind 2 5 7 9 11 13 15 22 23 24 30 33 38 46 47 48 51 57 60. 19 dogs back to the waterblind.

Hot now, 80 and sunny and hazy/humid. Amateur has a baby pool for the dogs and they are HOT.

Amateur is a triple. Left bird/stand up at 250 yrds, thrown angle back left into a draw. Middle long retired at 325 yds thrown very sharp angle back left. Off to right, flyer shot to right. Dogs are hot and any with hunts are really hot. On left bird, dogs flare deep cover and hunt on top of the hill. On long retired, dogs don't punch deep enough and hunt. on flyer, there are hunts too.

Am callback to waterblind--20 dogs--8 9 10 11 13 18 22 25 30 32 33 36 40 42 46 47 51 52 53 55. Start from back of dike, over road, cut small corner of water, get on peninsula and angle down peninsula past slip of water on the left staying on peninsula, into water on left and angle across to blind that was planted on shore edge.

Am callbacks to landblind--34 dogs--1 4 6 8 9 10 11 13 16 18 22 25 27 28 29 30 32 33 35 36 37 39 40 41 42 43 46 47 51 52 53 54 55 58. Double landblind. first blind was run to left of line towards deep cover, with bird just on edge of deep cover. Long blind was run through waist high cover. Distance through cover varied, depending on what line the dog took. The cover was cut like a dinner plate was laid down and trimmed around the edge. From the left of the line, there was short distance through the cover. As you looked to left and the curve of the cut, the distance through the cover was longer. Line through the cover towards the poison bird was about 30 yards and you couldn't see the dog until it popped out into the hayfield. The poison bird was short of and to the left of the left retired mark area. Once the dog passed the poison bird, it ran through the left retired fall area, and drove up the hill towards the blind. A couple of dogs got the poison bird. Some dogs took the short distance though the waist-high cover and ran left of the "proper" line to the blind. You had to trust that your dog would cast off the poison bird, or run by without picking it up.

We ran until it was pretty dark, with handler's option to continue running. Unfortunately, we ran out of daylight with 4 dogs to run. They ran on Sunday a.m. with the sun at their backs, and some dogs had difficulty seeing the handlers' casts.

Water triple with 2 retireds. We ran from the dike area in about the middle of the water that is down the road from the Long House--running to the west. Left long retired thrown right at far left corner of area. Right long retired thrown left sharp angle back (near parking lot) at far right corner of area. Flyer shot to right of line about 60 yards. Dogs did it. First couple of dogs, the wind was blowing from the south and the dogs winded the area where an Open mark had been thrown the day before as they headed for the long bird, and took a sharp left on the way to the left retired. After that, the wind chged to coming over the handlers' backs and the dogs did the left mark well. On the way to the right retired, there is a large/dark pumping station (used to pump the pond). Some dogs bailed out early at the pumping station vs. staying in the water all the way to the corner, and hunted or ran down the dike road to the bird.

Derby winner Colby is a great dog and Christian one of many truly nice people I've met playing this game.

Rip and fellow SVRC member Busler's are on a roll.

Also Eddie Krueger, Frosty on 2nd, Steve Blythe, Ruff 3rd, don't know these guys too well :) and derby buddy Jim Katusin, Treble on his 4th.

Congrats.

Mick did good job. Watched him hammer 3rd series in dark. No points for RJAM but in that field of dogs a good job indeed.

Congratulations to John Skibber for his Am win with Tess, now with an AFC to match her FC title Additional kudos for John's second place in the Qual with Rainey. A very profitable weekend in Iowa for this Texas handler.

Congratulations also go out to Dave Seifert for his 4th place in the Am with his fine dog, Thief.
