Open had wide open triple. Left bird thrown left to right. Say 9 o'clock. 300 yards. Retired. Then right hand bird shot left to right. Say 3 o'clock. 250 yards. Layout blind. Flyer shot left to right. Say. 12 o'clock. 200 yards. Lots of terrain to prevent the dogs from running straight.

Test held up all day.

Lots of handles and pickups.

Fun to run.

Judy Carter said she would post callbacks when she got home

Was airing my dogs at 5:30 this morning and ran into Bill Cummins, and Max and Ann Uhlenhake of the Sooner Retriever Club, getting ready to put on the last series of the Am and Q.

It is alot of work to put on a FT, especially one with AA stakes, when you don't have AA dogs. To my knowledge, none of the folks here have AA dogs, but year after year, they put on a FT

Just want to say thanks to the members of the Sooner Retriever Club, and clubs like them across the country, who work their tails off so that others can enjoy themselves.

Thanks Frank & Paul.

I'm still in shock that my dog won it. She just turned 3 last month, and this was only her second Open to run.

She has only been in FT training with Bill Schrader for 12 months. This time last year she was having problems with Senior Hunt tests, due to line manner issues. They put her back through basics, and less than six months later she got the first of two Qualifying wins.

This is a big testament to Bill Schrader & Shane Ruppert, and the job they have done with not only her, but the 2 other very nice young dogs that have made the jump to AA this spring.

Thank you Bill & Shane, and the rest of the Two Step group.

I was one of the flier gunners in the land series of the AM and the water series of the Open and I tossed a bird on the water series of the Qual. I am new to the club and new to trials and HTs, all I can say is there are some amazing dogs and trainers there. Everyone seemed to have a good time and I am glad I signed up to help out. One of the best weekends I have had in a while. SRC is full of some great folks that are truly in it for the dogs.

Congrats to the winning dogs, competition was stiff, the ones that won definitely earned it.

Aaron Homburg

One phrase to sum up the weekend " I wanna be like Mike!" Way to go Boley and Wharton, congratz!

Cudo's to the Sooner crew who put on a great trial, thanks to judges workers and all of the fine folks I had a chance to visit with this weekend, great to meet fellow RTF'er Greg Seddon finally! He said he didn't want to end up on RTF but what the heck! Still can't believe he "goosed" my Q dog while the last bird went down!!! hehe :-P

Better Sooner than Later regards,

Ya, I think I have found a good group. Bill Cummins brought me some pigeons for Rayder, my 19 week old, we had a riot watching him chase those around after the work was done Sunday. :p

I will be around, if I don't have a dog in the race I can always help out right? :D
