Maybe the judges had a great setup and 15 of the dogs were not ready for a double and a blind. I hate to hear bitching by the internet fan club.

It's not bitching Chad; but an observation. You've been there and seen it yourself, as have I.

But you are quite correct; 15 dogs were not ready for this Q.

Only 5 back for the waterblind.

Actually, 6 were back for the WB, and 5 back to the last series. There were 25-30 m.p.h. winds out there today. Made it difficult for all.

Qual Congrats to:

Chris Byers and Bell - First
Bobby Smith and Jake - Second
Ken Mattson and Sully - Third
John Gassner and Annie - Fourth

The land series was challenging but doable...the folks listed above proved it was doable! For me and my dog: It ate our lunch and I blame myself as the trainer for not having my dog prepared for the setup we faced.

Thanks to Tim Thurby and Brooks Gibson for giving up their time to watch our dogs and set up the tests!

Chris thanks for the insider information, you hit the nail on the head. Two people gave up their weekend to judge. Trying to find judges is hard, then if they hear bitching they might not want to do it again. Richard you are also right I have a small list of people I wouldn't run under again. But my list is not made of judges who setup demanding and challenging setups. Is has more to do with how they placed and did their Callbacks. We all need to sit in the seat with the book more often than most of us do.

I think it's our friend Mike Lardy that said, "Don't go to a trial and be over whelmed"

Last we heard was that the Amateur waterblind was going to run at the Gierman's at 8am

That's the same number they came back with to do the double land blind.

Open had 16 back for the water marks I think.

My thanks to all the judges and club members for their efforts. This is a small club with very limited options for grounds. They and the judges are doing the best they can under the circumstances.

The Open and Am. judges set up very fair tests and did not pencil whip. Very fair callbacks.

Tim and Brooks set up a very tough first series. They said that was the best test the could do with the field they had. They were more than generous with callbacks and very fair with placements. Chris, Bobby and Ken and Dick all had very nice dogs making it to the last series.

I will work on almost-retired memory guns into the wind and goal post blinds in between the marks. I will also work on casting away from very visible blind planter blind hides that are down wind of the blind before I run one of their Q's again. I also have things to train for in the the other stakes. No blue for me this weekend!

Training not complaining regards
John

That open win qualifies Juice for the Nat'l. Great last few weeks for those littermates. 3x 1sts & a 2nd between Juice (open win), Freeway (open win) & Stella (open win & 2nd). Lorri O. has got to be feeling good about her Chopper x Keliah breeding. I'd guess Sister Pink (DNC) ought to be showing up with a win soon too.

Thanks Becky and David!

Yes, it's been a great month Dave, but don't forget, it all started with YOU. When you stepped up there and ran Ms. Stella yourself and picked up that 2nd! You got the ball rolling!

Yes, Lori, sure knew what she was doing!!!

Onward to Mississippi.

Brother Jim,

I'm so happy that Dave and the Juicebox put together a win. I told you Dave said Juice had a nice land series on Friday! I just wish I'd have seen him run it.

If you talk to Don Bovers, speaking of the first, I did get to see Pat Burns handle Hoke on that one...little hunt on the left retired, but he absolutely threaded the needle and hammered that up over the mound, catch the piece of water, drive up the little hillside, long retired memory bird.

Congrats to the team Orange Grove!

I would like to thank Dave Sniegowski and Vicki Worthington for all their help in the Q and Derby, also Sharon Long for help in the Q and Trey Lawrence, Bill Leitner, Bridgette Carlsen, and Jerry Kamphuis for their bird throwing abilities in the Derby.

American Am. club has very limited grounds and the minor stakes gets the last thing available so it is a challenge of your abilities to set up solid tests.

Thanks for all the hospitality by Hal and Sharon Geirman.

I also won $900 blaying blackjack at Harrahs in Joliet, Il. Friday night so I had a very enjoyable weekend. Got along great with my co-judge Tim Thurby also.
