Amateur Update --- Nothing to report except as was the case yesterday the amateur has been put on hold until the qualifying runs their test.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 12:21 PM
Amateur Update -- 12:03 and the birds are down for the first dog, # 24 Annie.

The test is a triple with a long up & out punch bird and a down the far shore bird set up as a flower pot. The long bird down first is out a good 350-380 yards thrown to the right (contrary) and the gun retired. The second bird down is the down the shore bird it is out about 180 yards; the gun remains out. The flyer is down last shot from a narrow bar of land extending from the near shore. The bird is shot to the left away from the other marks and land beyond the bar of land on which the guns are positioned. Distance to the bird is a about the same as the down the shore mark or a bit longer.

Annie has two birds and is off for the long mark.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 12:46 PM
Annie recovered the long bird without help from Linda.

# 26 Tiger - After retrieving two birds clean, when sent for the long mark broke down near the down the shore gun and needed to be handled on the the long mark.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 12:55 PM
# 29 Jester - Picked up :(

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 01:21 PM
# 36 after recovering the two shorter marks, appeared to have a good line going to the long mark, but popped just deep of the down the shore gun and needed a couple verbal “back” casts to break the pop. He then recovered the bird without help.

One might surmise that after four dogs that Annie is the leader in the clubhouse.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 01:26 PM
# 39 Jefe covered considerable ground in his quest for the long bird, but did recover it on his own.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 01:58 PM
I have attempted to keep these posts to strictly objective observations, but that is not much fun. Please understand that I am not judging, my position is not nearly as good as the judges and I did not see every dog run every series; just BS from the gallery that will have no bearing on the results.

# 49 Twister - Had a hunt of some magnitude in the flyer, hit the down the shore mark hard, then looked a bit lost on the long mark hooking left deep of the out gun but well short of the long mark. The dog popped but so briefly that some judges might ignore it. He then proceeded to hunt and find bird.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 02:08 PM
# 50 Ramseie has recovered the two shorter marks and is about to be sent for the money bird. And she is off!!

While waiting on Ramsie to make the swim I will comment that the wind has laid down considerably. The sky has darkened. I would expect that the wind shift to out of the northwest and the rain to start any minute.

Ramsie has recovered the long bird after what one might call a biggie hunt.

Time for me to go suit up. Maybe I can update the remaining dogs while waiting on call backs. No update means that I picked up and headed to GA.

Jim Pickering
10-25-2009, 04:00 PM
# 51 Rooster made quick work of the two shorter birds. Then when sent for the long mark tested his handler by heading back to the down the shore mark on a better line that the first time. Linda did raise whistle to lips but did not blow and Rooster never broke stride continuing deep. Unfortunately with the wind shift the wind did not help and he had one of those biggie hunts but did recover the bird without help.

There have been hunts on the flyer and the shorter dead bird marks, but basically this is a one bird test.

# 9 went well wide almost squaring across the pond and popped, requiring a couple arm and verbal casts to get him moving again. He was handled to the AOF and recovered the bird.

I did not see much of dogs # 10 and # 15 because I was getting # 20 ready. The rain did not materialize with the went calm by the time the last dog ran. I can report the all three #s 10, 15 and 20 all handled after biggie hunts on the long mark.

The judges are still in conference so I am heading to GA.

Thanks for the play by play. I'm sorry you had to handle. :(

Tim West
10-25-2009, 08:33 PM
Jim, thanks for the play by play.

Unfortunately, I only have the placements and RJ and no other info as I have it second hand as well, having had to leave with another two hours of dogs left to run.

First-Ramsie and Paul Rainbolt
Second-Rooster and Linda Noga
Third-Jefe (me)
Fourth-Annie and Linda Noga
RJ-Twister and Al Wilson

I believe all other contestants got jams except the one pickup.

The marking tests in this Am were good, hard tests and the same for the blinds.

Thanks to the Tulsa RC who are a very small club and work their tails off. Thanks guys and thanks to the contestants who placed and finished!

As for me, it's time for my dogs to train on all shot fliers during duck and guiding season.

Paul Rainbolt
10-26-2009, 07:16 AM
Thanks all, I Also left early and kept checking RTF for the results . I didn't find out i had won till I rebooted my I phone and 6 voice mail popped up, man i was surprised.

Anyone who puts on a trial know how hard it is to manage the workers for all the stakes and run your dogs in between putting out fires and dealing with all the little dramas that come up. I'm feel humbled and blessed to have been able to compete with the great handlers and dogs in the last series of this AM.

I want to personally thank all the judges who gave there time, Gary Davidson and Mo Shubble (Limited) Chip Miles And Greg Seddon( AM) Gary Gallaway ,Art Geddes (Qual).

All the volunteers workers who step up and help set up, tear down , provide four wheelers shoot flyer's, Marshal, get lunches, stewart stakes, James Roberts, Tim West, Mike Logins, Brit Whit, Todd , John Freeman, Anna Curry, Richard Davis, Len Lelfore,Chris and Martha Mcool, Joseph McCann for making his awesome grounds available to the club.

It was a pleasure meeting Jim Pickering and all the other folks who were in the region for the Golden specialty and hung around to run the Tulsa trial. Thanks for the beer Jim.

I also won the OH Qual with my Ramsie pup

OH Qual results

1st - #15 Riverdance Iron Horse Allie
