It was a thrill to hand that Blue Ribbon and trophy to John Freeman and Ginger.
Winner of the Open. Congratulations .... again.

Best time I have when we host a HT or FT is giving out the ribbons and trophys.

Thank you all for coming to Sunflower and congratulations to all who went home
with a trophy/ribbon. Made my day.

John Freeman, You're the man.

Big congrats to you and Ginger.

Folks if you don't know John he gives tirelessly to the sport, if you do you'll agree.

The public park off of 11th and 169 must have some special Mojo to it.

A very cold, rainy weekend for judging anything including the minor stakes. But when everything comes together like it did at Sunflower it makes it worth it. The grounds are as good and plentiful as I have seen in a long time, plenty of willing workers to be able to run back to back series so that we were able to get the pros' in and run 2 series while they were on the line. That's only possible when the club has it all together. Great job Tom, Marsha, Rich, Kathie, Lonnie Gretchen, Richard & all workers.***And the #1 bird thrower-Wes and all the rest of the workers.

Thank you Jim for coming and doing the thankless job that is so neccessary for this sport. I would like to also thank Tom & Marcia Traylor for once again opening their grounds and extending their hospitality so that our club could once again put on a great trial. I recieved many compliments from constestants on how well everyone worked together to put on this event. Once again I am proud to be a part of this club. Thank you everyone who came and congratulations to the winners. Hope to see you next year!
