Just wanted to remind everyone about the upcoming Treasure Coast RC Inaugural Field Trial near Okeechobee, Fl - mentored by the Jacksonville Retriever Club. It will be held on Dempsey Ranch - beautiful land owned by Ginny Atterbury.

We are having a Derby and a Qual and have a great group of judges. It will probably be a small test - good place to get some points on your dog.

This year it is Saturday, January 2 and Sunday January 3, 2010. What better place to spend New Year's that close to Disney World, Universal, Daytona, Gainesville - and our weather is pretty darn nice that time of year.

Plus we have a really delicious tailgate on Saturday night. We hope to lure you all down so our first FT will be a success.

Thanks!

If he misses ONE bird in the derby all he should get is a lump of coal. And Corey, that does not mean a new little black dog from the litter of your choice!

Think I'll be putting one in the Q too.
P.S.--WE all might want to look out for some red dogs- think Sharon L will be there too.

Thanks for posting the callbacks for this event.

I'm having fun watching from the flatlands desktop where it is exactly zero degrees F.

Randall, how's it feel to be going for the finish with Jim and Juice? Very, very cool!

Good luck all...and be sure to ask Lanse how his derby girl Nora got her name.

Bus was rooting for little bro Thunder to make the funny papers at the end. I hope he had some fun at Ginny's this weekend.

If anybody gets to see this in time, please pass along a hello to Ginny from me here in the frozen cornfields.

The derby was finishing this morning. David was still in it last I knew

01-03-2010, 12:00 PM
Let me tell you, one heck of a Q. I think Jim and Juice (hummm doesn’t Snoop Dog have a song like that or is it Gin and Juice…) were without a doubt the winners. I think Keith and Randall could have easily flipped, either dog and handler was deserving of second and I am glad I did not have to separate second through 4th because all were great.
Randall gets the handlers ribbon though, she showed the big boys how it was done. I believe she carried both her dogs to the third, just an outstanding job.
Jim has one heck of a nice dog in Juice. Keep an eye on this one. He is a young dog and was far and away the best marker of the bunch. A bit more time and this dog is only going to get better (certainly not that a win is not great, but I will bet this dog is soon an FC.
Keith as always had some great dogs that are always a pleasure to watch. Class act and a great trainer.

Just got off of the phone with Keith Farmer and he said what a great job the TCRC did for their first Field Trial. Apparently these guys really wanted to do it right and really worked hard all weekend.

Keith Farmer's Tremblin' Earth Kennels had a fine showing for the weekend: "Bear" ( owned by Mike Kennedy and who already has a Q win under his belt. Handled this weekend by Keith.) came in 2nd in the Q. Apparently only 4 dogs made it to the 4th series and it was a huge set up. "Ranger" ( Derby list dog owned by Wes Wilkes that also has it's HRCH / Handled by Keith.) went out in the 2nd of the Q but is really starting to look like a big time player. As for the Derby, 2 dogs Keith either trained or handled placed. "T-Bone" ( owned by Greg Boree / Handled by Keith) came in second. "Lola" (owned and handled by David Cruz / trained at Tremblin Earth) came in 3rd, a great showing for the first time in a Derby. Way to go David! Great work Keith.

Here's the derby setup from the second series. It's a bit hard to make out the white coats in the pictures.

Go bird. The line is between the palmetto palm and the shrubs, through the water and about 100 yards through the field. You can barely make out the white coats to the left of the palm trees in the distance.

Memory bird. The line is between the first two palm tress and through some cover. You can make out the white coats in between the palm trees.

Thank you all for the kind words! We are floating on cloud nine with our 3rd place. I honestly would have been thrilled if we had just made it through the first series. John and I are somewhat in shock.

In all truth, I owe a big thanks to Jill Volsch who took Emmy last year as a 15 month old started dog and taught her how to play the game - and to Emmy for trying to be such a good girl all the time.

This weekend was a new experience for many of us and was SO MUCH FUN!!!! We couldn't have asked for better weather (IMO), we had great food, excellent judges, and such fun and friendly people. And it was great watching all the dogs!

The whole thing was driven by Amy and Scott Cormier - they've been working on this for a year. Outstanding job and tremendous persistence.

Juice and Jim did a fabulous job. I thought Juice's long water mark was awesome to watch. And it was a real learning experience for me to watch Keith and Bill work their dogs. And Brenda Little gave me a lot of moral support - and told me not to blow that whistle no matter what unless Emmy was going back to the old fall!

Especially a big thank you to all of you who entered - we hope to see you again next year!

Treasure Coast Retriever Club, and especially Amy Cormier, Scott Cormier and Ginny Atterbury put on one heck of Derby/Q this past weekend. The grounds were perfect, the detail to preparation was obvious to any one that was lucky enough to be there. Many of us always dreamed about a FT being so close to home and you guys gave it to us! Our appreciation is deep and sincere! The bronze statues were simply out of this world. I heard a few folks say they were the nicest awards they had ever seen at any FT. I know for a fact, mine will guarded like the Hope Diamond forever!

Randall you are one heck of a dog person. You did a phenomenal job. Now both of us have to get ready for next year.

The entire ordeal ran like a well-oiled machine. It was very impressive to see how many different people chipped in to make this event so special. Pro Keith Farmer was kind enough to spend day picking up the birds and delivering them.

I wasn’t able to get many photos because I was a bit busy ATTEMPTING to figure this new stuff out, but here’s a decent one of Greg and Kathy McGinn’s incredibly talented Katie, returning on the land series.

Thank you TCRC, for your HEROIC effort!

A big thank you to Amy and Scott and everyone who made the weekend a success! Amy was smiling every time I saw her and helped to make it all fun.

It was the first time I had ever even seen a Derby Field Trial and I was thrilled to have a dog to enter. I was so happy that Tripp picked up the first double. We were not called back but it didn't matter to me. Tripp showed me great perseverance on finding the flyer, and even after all that time & effort - on the second send - he blasted out and picked up his memory bird.

A huge congrats to David and Lola - we had both stood in the back and had just hoped to finish the first double - I knew David & Lola would do well - but a placement - that is SO awesome!!

Another huge congrats to Jim and Juice. Jim was kind enough to take me out last week and set up some field trial marks and give me some advice. It was a pleasure to watch him run his dogs.

Thanks to all the gunners and throwers and workers. It was a great weekend.

What added to the fun this weekend was the number of folks - and dogs - who were running their first FT and were pleasantly surprised at how well their pups did. Ribbon or no, everyone had a good time and many of us learned a bit more about our dogs and our handling skills - or in my case lack thereof.
Thanks to Amy and everybody else who pitched in to make a fun weekend.

I have probably attended and competed in at least 920 field trials since 1965 and I must say the TCRC trial was equal to any that I have attended. There was never a harsh word, no"you're on the clock" and many of the other attitude problems that some self appointed NAZI marshalls carry with them. The mechanics were excellent. Everyone pitched in and Bob Swift was exemplary as to keeping the Derby moving. The judges were not officious(perhaps because they train their dogs and have a sensitivity to what we all have to go through every weekend and were secure in their ability. I think the greatest thing I noticed was that the club members found that people who run field trials are not stuck up snobs but are capable of applauding and congratulating and helping out. It was really fabulous to see this as the future of the sport of retrievers will call for people working together whether they are Hunt Test or Field Trials- it's about the dogs and the love that each of us has for their own dog- it was a fun time and without Ginny we would not have been able to have fun. Thank you Ginny, Amy and Scott, Dennis, Karon and all the rest that made it happen I was fortunate to have been able to attend and I had FUN!

I want to congratulate the judging teams for putting together a trial that was both unusual and more challenging than I could have ever envisioned. More than that, thank's for anchoring a terrific atmosphere for everyone involved. The final series of both stakes were awfully exciting. I can honestly say that I've never seen more "Body English" in a gallery before...

Hat's off to you guys and thanks for volunteering your time for the first TCRC field trial!


Notable Quote from Bill W.:

"Boy that guy who won the Q sure was excited. I haven't seen people have this much fun at a field trial for a long time ...everybody running their own dogs, that's a big difference. You don't see that much any more ...reminds me why I got in to this sport twenty-some years ago."


Thanks to everyone who pitched in.

...most of all, thanks Ginny.

Look at Ken, he's having trouble holding the darn thing up.

If Bill thought I was out of hand this time,.... best to tell him now, to stay far away, should I be lucky enough to even finish the OPEN or AM next year.
