Did they finish the Derby ?

Thy did finish with the derby but I do not have any placement info. The Open still has about 10-12 dogs to run in the first series tomorrow morning. The set up is at Wallstein's and is a tricky triple with all guns retired. The right hand bird, is at about 370 yards, thrown left to right. The gunner is located at the corner of an "L" shaped area of intense cover. The angle is such that if the dog sucks back toward to center bird, he is likely to end up on the opposite side of the cover from the bird. The center bird is thrown second, left to right, at about 230 yards. The gunner is only visible through a narrow channel between two very large shrubs/trees. To the left is a flyer shot right to left. The flyer gunners are concealed and only emerge from cover after the center bird has been thrown. They walk out, shoot the flyer, and retire as soon as the dog is released.

Amateur is a triple double retired. Far left first down. Far right second. Down and flyer up the middle. All marks relatively short.

Q is wide open triple with long middle gun retired. Most dogs doing the test.

09-11-2010, 01:20 PM
Qualifying is a long triple in an open, mowed field. Center gun is at 240 yards, thrown right to left. Gun retires to woods. Second bird on the right at 330 yards thrown left to right. Third bird is a flyer mat 130 yards, shot angled back to the right. Should be over about now but I had to come home to feed puppies. Will return now to see if I get to run the next series.

Big Congratulations to Charlie DeMatteo and Kate on their 1st place in the Qualifying.

Also wanted to thank the South Jersey Retriever Club for putting on such a great trial. The judges and all the club members really worked hard to make everything run so smoothly. It was a pleasure all weekend long!!

gotcha buddy!I guess after being on call for the last month and a half straight, judging with me must've just been the lesser of two evils.??
Was fun though. Had a good time. Had great help. Thanks to the club members and some nonmembers as well, who helped keep things moving along.
And, congratulations to all!

Thanks David and lbbuckler.

Here are the official results Apologies for the delay. Unbelievable as it may seem I have not been connected to the internet since last Thursday!

Please note, dog #8 in the limited was a JAM, not a scratch. Retriever Entry will update the results tomorrow. Also Pink's win in the Open makes her an FC!

Many thanks to those who judged, ran and helped out.
