They're getting the weather we had here yesterday, we got almost 4" of rain that came in off/on squalls.

The derby is running as I write this (~noon CDT), first / second series a double-double.

Not sure where the qual will be held as its going to be difficult to get folks further back on those grounds.

Yup! The third series ended right before dark. Rained all day! It rained sideways for most of the time and has really cooled of. The Open decided not to start but at the Derby, we took a 30 minute puase until it stopped lightning. Big test taking a lot of time. Also, wet poppers created delays. 12 Derby dogs back to the 4th at 7:30am.

Qualifying will begin at the Washington property at the conclusion of the Derby.

Good luck on a 7:30 start time

feel lucky if the first bird hits the ground @ 8:30

Just got off the phone with Mark. Quick took first. Tex got second. Quick's second win in as many weekends. This does qualify both dogs for the National although Quick's qualification is for 2010, since Joe is judging this year's. A very impressive couple of weeks for Quick. Not bad for a dog who is 10 years 4 months old. Congratulations to Mark, Joe and Jerard.

Thanks everyone. Congrats also to Wendell, Mark, Jay, Kenny, and Tracey on their great weekend. The Cajun Riviera folks put on a great trial and thanks to the judges who gave up their weekend and judged in the rough conditions.

Huge thanks to my training group, the Mock's and Jimmy Iles for giving me the opportunity to run a great pup.

Are the Open results correct? It shows Ryan & Donald 4th, not Ricky & Sophie.

Thanks everyone for putting on a great trial; especially under adverse conditions.

My mistake when I posted the results on EE.net at lunchtime.

Sophie and Ricky both earned the 4th.

Trial didn't end till dark. By the time I drove the equipment to my house, wiped down the popper guns, unloaded the trailer, showered and had dinner, I was done!

Came home today just to gets the results posted on EE.net, then back to the office. Results are corrected on EE.net
