The open 1st series was or is (9 dogs to run this morning) a straight forward triple with hen pheasants set in a field with more than adequate cover to hide the birds and just enough cover variation to influence the dog without conviction of destination. The sky was overcast all day so the lighting conditions changed little during the day. Intermittent spits of rain but enough only to be a factor for the gallery.

The right bird is thrown first out about 320 yards (wag) and thrown to the left. The true line to this bird requires a water entry about 275 yards out, 40 yard swim across a bay of a larger pond beyond and another 15 yards to the bird. Gun retired into a brushed up wrap around blind. The middle bird and the flyer are set up as a flower pot, but with enough horizontal separation of the guns for the dogs to clearly identify to gun stations. The middle bird down second out also around 300 yards with the bird thrown to the right and the gun retired. The flyer 120 yards +/- down last and shot to the left. The separation between the two long marks is about 30-35 degrees so lots of room in the middle.

Right of the right mark was the large pond so not many dogs went there, but there were a couple. Left and deep of the right mark across to deep of the middle mark was a large open field in which to run and play.

The work varied from unable to come up with the flyer to pinning all three marks. I spent most of the day in the truck trying to stay warm so did not watch a lot of dogs, but I suspect that the judges will have the open well under control by mid morning. Steady rain falling this morning.

Thanks, Steve! This is a big one for us. I hate not being there. Its kinda cool that Rob and Creed win a qual on the same day, too.

Did Sally get her package yet? I mailed to SD, so maybe not.

All I can tell you about the Derby is that Barb Younglove got 1st #18, I think #8 Frank & Rita Jones got 2nd, 3rd was #5 Clint Joyner & 4th was #16 Chad Radt. I hope that is correct....if its not I hope someone can confirm or correct me. Sorry I didnt write the results down and only going from memory and that can be scary!!

When Post # 22 gets it would he please send it to me? This is a GREAT follow up after Jack and will do a world of good for a really hard working Amateur trainer-hard worker at trials and a judicious trainer.
