If you plan on attending the PPRC FT this July we will need help with live gunning (and possibly some marshalling)!

We are a very small club or should I say we have a very small group of active club members. For what ever reason PPRC FT ends up being very large almost to the point of insanity! Our club struggles with pulling off the FT.

We should have plenty of dead bird throwers (and yes for the full three days ;-) ). We can even have a cadet throwing the live flier, they just can't shoot.

The usual benifits will be provided....drinks and a lunch! If you sign up early to shoot (i..e. send me a PM/email/call) I will make sure you get a lunch even if you shoot a later shift.

Thanks,

Lainee

I will be there and all you had to do was e-mail me.
Now for that I need gunners at the women's the next week. Can I count on you and Dave?

man I thought Colorado Women's Retriever club was more selective than that, they must be desperate for members to allow an old geezer like you into the sorority.......;-)

If we are there, yes. I will not bring my ATV this year however, just too much of a PITA, not to mention we have a travel trailer now.

And I would of sent an emial, but RTF reaches a community at large.

Thanks to all who have responded so far!

Just get Goettle. That cuts down on the gunners you need.

I have 2 rooms reserved at the Little Tree Inn in Granby for the FT. They do not allow dogs, but none of the hotels in Granby do. If interested let me know and we can arrange to transfer the reservation into your name and credit card.

Also we will be raffling a 3 pole Butch Green holding blind as a fund raiser for the club. We haven't figured out the cost of the tickets yet, but it will be reasonable.

Pheasant fliers, right?

Draw is posted....see everyone next weekend.

And if you finish a stake (i.e JAM or better) you will be included in a drawing for a Bill Hillman DVD.....thanks to the Hillmans and George for making this happen. So good luck.

The drawing for the holding blind will be on Saturday - the winner of the Q will draw the lucky winner. Tickets will be $5 a piece or 5 for $20. It is a 3 pole Butch Green Holding blind. See George to buy tickets.

One last note about camping. In the past we have charged for camping, but it was a PITA to collect money from everyone. This year the club is asking for a donation for camping, but I would recommend get the most bang for your buck and buy a raffle ticket or two for the holding blind ;)

We would have to shoot the flyer that wont be retired. Be hard to judge from the retired holding blind.

Mike - I'm your marshall and I do not know how to do human CPR! Also, I was planning on running the test dog, but a quad, 2 live fliers w/1 retired, blind up the middle picked up after all birds down?! How is EdA's aim??

Janice, I was thinking of the blind on the outside of the marks but I like your idea better. Thanks for the idea. Your test dog will be great. Im glad I got the A Team marshal.

Wasn't much to it from what I heard. Of course, the lynch mob wasn't available to voice their opinion.

That being said, remember there are 2 judges for a reason and though this is a large Qual, we will be cognizant of the expected training and abilities of the dogs entered. I am sure Mike would agree.

I knew I could count on you to toughen it up for me. I hate to make it too easy.
