A little more detail. The Open triple has two long retired and a short flyer. Right bird goes down first thrown right to left from a slope down into a winding ditch with water and lots of tules. The two gunners retire behind the slope. Middle bird which looks to be slightly longer goes down second and is thrown left to right from a mowed section of a hillside down into unmowed cover. Gunner retires into a layout blind. So the two memory birds are pinched. Short flyer is about 90 degrees to the left of the right hand bird. I watched eight dogs run. Three did it clean but two with some hunting. All three successful dogs took the longer middle bird second. Dogs that went for the middle bird last tended to flare away from the bird they had already picked up and ended up lost in the wide open space behind the middle gunner.

I can see the Open from my RV and it looks like they've shut down for the day at about 7:15 MDT. The judges said that they would stop when it was no longer fair. I'm sure there are more dogs to run tomorrow morning. Hope someone who stayed will have more info on the number of dogs left to run.

BTW, Marie, Trek was not entered in the Open. We run the Am tomorrow.

Yes, Marie. I've been staying at Valhalla for the past month. The Open is on a hill at the other end of Eric's property. It's close enough that I can see who's running with my binoculars. The Derby is on Rob Erhardt's property and the Qual will be starting at noon today at Jan Snow's. Amateur will be starting at 8:00 today at the Kolstad's.

Doug, I hope to get over to the Qual to say hi later today. Good luck.

The Amateur is a very tight triple in a flat field. All birds thrown left to right. Long middle bird thrown first and hip pocket to flyer station with a road to cross enroute to that bird. Nearly as long left bird thrown second. Flyer on the right. Both memory gunners retire in laydown blinds. There is a ditch with water angling in front of the line and the corner of a pond with running water to negotiate as well. The wind has been changing direction with every dog. The majority of the dogs are getting the birds in some fashion with a few outstanding jobs. But some have either gone out into no man's land or have gone out for the long bird to the right of the flyer station and been handled or picked up. Thunderstorms have been passing over with lightning in all directions all morning. I left to return to my motorhome for a bit, and now it's pouring with even closer thunder and lightning. I'm guessing they might have halted judging while this storm passes through.

I can see that the Open has moved and must be preparing to run the land blind. Blue sky to the west, so the storm should pass by fairly soon.

I see that no one has posted the Derby results. The only thing I know is that Don Remien won with Oops and that Lynn Nelson took 4th with Tebow. I heard different reports from people on the other placings so I'll leave those to someone with direct knowledge.

Thanks for your thanks. I'm happy to serve as your unofficial reporter. Trek went out in the Amateur yesterday so I have plenty of time. He was one of the few who got all three birds but was penciled out in the end. I assume it was because he hunted short before punching through to get the long bird. Unfortunately, we had the wind in our face for a short time, and Trek was running when that happened. Still I was pleased that he got all the birds. Many very good dogs did not.

So, today I am wandering between stakes and picking up what I can. The Open is still running the water blind which is under the arc of a poison bird. There are about five pieces of water to negotiate enroute with two being before the dog gets to the poison bird which is thrown across the far end of a round pond. I haven't been over to the Amateur yet, but I heard that they have a poison bird and a remote send on their land blind. I'll head over there shortly.

Judy sorry that Trek went out. Sounds like at good effort. You are doing a great job of reporting. You must have a good connetction for the computer.

6, 10, 11, 15, 17, 20, 44, 45, 46, 50, 53, 58, 62, 65, 68, 70

The Amateur was nearly done with their water blind when I was out there. Didn't see it from the line, but it looked like it included a dry shot, a no-see-um start, an entry into water, over two points, past a line of tules, and out through a slot between two bushes.

The Open was just in the process of setting up their last series when I picked up the callbacks.
