Open was wrapping up the first series when I left. There was a big triple. The long center gun was right to left at 450-500 yards (It was beyond the 440 yard limit of my range finder.), the "short" retired was a converging throw, left to right, at 300 yards so that the birds were virtually in line. Off to the right, at 150 yard, there was a hen flyer. About 20-25% of the dogs picked up (two because of heat/exhaustion), and about another 20% either handled or had major hunts. The Q will be running the water blind in the morning. 21 dogs were called back for the second. I'm not sure how many more were dropped in the callbacks for the third (my girl went out in the first).

Hey Jeff,

Have you got your camera with you? :) A couple of our rugs are back to the 3rd in the Q. I believe there are 14 back. Sorry folks, no numbers.

I think Bait and Jim run their dogs better when they have a little "pub time".

Just got back but can't offer any results. The Open brought about half the dogs back for the land blind, a double retrieve on Bill Thompson's property. This was followed by a very long (~500 yards) water blind where the handler moved forward about 50 yards to remain visible to the dog. That was still running when I left at 5:30.

The derby opened with a land single, thrown right to left. The handler then waited in a blind and then came to a new line facing about 110 degrees tot he right of the original line where there was a contrary double with a short dead bird throw as the left left mark thrown right to left into deep shadow. This was followed by a long flyer -- long both from the line and in the normal flight of the bird. The bird landed in high grass. While the long flyer was the go bird, a large number of dogs remained focused on the left bird, retrieving it first. That contributed to some large hunts on the flyer but the dogs generally seemed to come through.

The Amateur opened with a big triple: two retired guns and a flyer. The long memory burd was at about 450+ yards, thrown downhill from the woods line. The short retired was thrown from a blind situated across a channel and right on the shore of a large iece of water (The Quarry Pond). The bird was thrown in front of the pond but, needless to say, a number of the dogs went into the water. The flyer required the dogs to cross two channels, landing on a fairly large land area bounded by a channel in front and a large pond behind. The winds were variable and the flyer was launched from a winger. The birds got caught is gusts of wind in a way that made the landing area quite variable with some big hunts. However, the long retired was the core challenge and resulted in about 20%+ pickups as dogs ranged far outside the area of fall. An almost equal number of dogs weren't picked up but had huge hunts.

All in all, the club and judges have put on some great tests. I photographed about 90% of the dogs in the Open first series, about half of the dogs in the Amateur first series, and about helf of the dogs in the derby. I didn't get any of the dogs in the Q. My own girsl was dropped after the first (the only time she hasn't made it out of the first series in derbies or Q's :mad:). It will take several hours to go through the 3000+ pictures and get a selection posted, but I will put something up in the next few days.

PS: I got a lot of pics of Bait running the first series of the Amateur.

I'm heading up to New Jersey to run in the hunting test being held at the Winslow WMA next weekend. My pup will be in the Senior. Is there anything about the property I should work on before I leave this week? Are there substantial changes of cover? Are there any severe slopes? Is the water open, flooded timber or filled with vegetation? I've never laid eyes on the property so I'd like to know a bit of what to expect if at all possible. Thanks.

John Lash
Yes. I'm trying to process all the pictures (over 3000) that I took on Friday and Saturday and will post the best on my web site in the next couple of days with a notice here. For the derby, most of the shots were at the line. The back lighting was so harsh it was almost impossible to photograph the black dogs while they were running. However, it did make for some dramatic line shots.

It must be Tyson (TKO's Sureshot). In the first series he had double no birds on the flyer and had to finally run last. Of course, that Means I have lots of pictures of Tyson at the line and none of him, running.;-)

Rick Millheim won the Open. Not sure which dog. All I know.
Didn't get much on the Q. Had to run last series and go run somewhere else, then gun somewhere else, then, run somewhere else, then move and setup....you get the picture.
Pretty sure #11won, #17 got 2nd, #25 Milly w/Abbey got third, can't find 4th or RJ, but#37 ;) and # 40 were 2 of the jams. Best I have. Sorry.
Congrats to everybody. Had a lot of fun this weekend. Even got cooled off real good when the thunderstorm hit today.
Oh yeah, and cool pics, Jeff! Wish I had time to stop and yak with ya. :)

I have now posted photos from the Open on my web site at http://jeffgoodwin.com/SDRC-201006/sdrc201006-Open/.

The lighting in the morning was very harsh, so I didn't post up photos of some dogs where I didn't like the quality. If your dog ran in the morning and you want me to see what I can do, please contact me. I did not photograph the last 6-8 dogs that ran (Dog 10 was the last I photographed).

All dogs are shown in the order that they ran. For dogs that had no birds, there may be photos of the handler and dog at the line followed three dogs later with photos from the actual run. At the bottom right there is a button for the gallery if you simply want to scroll through the photos without the slide show and music.

Hi Katie

Heather lives near me and is a nice gal. She is handling Ace for my friend Keith in the derby. I understand Ace is turning into a nice dog but haven't seen him much since he was a little pup. I will try to get her phone # or email if you didn't already get it.
