Had every intention on being there but work changed that idea. Good luck.

Heard the Open was very tough but fair. Sounds like not a lot of success. Sorry that's all I have.

Word has it that 8 of the first 35 were successful in "doing the test!" The test is a triple all three birds are pheasants.

No Pheasants in KS regards,

Tough but fair is true. The flyer is giving them all a tough time, approximately 60 yards in very deep cover. The flyer is killing a lot of memory, but is what pheasants can do.

The other two marks are out on open ground with the long bird being very deep. The dogs have to run through four washouts to get there. Looks like less than 25% success.

First series still going?

Gosh when Greg Bradford and I judged the Open last year there was less than 50 in the Open. I guess people didn't want to run under Greg.

10-01-2010, 08:05 PM
Open stopped with about 20 something left to run. Dogs fared better in afternoon. Judges still in command. good and fair test.

10-02-2010, 01:01 PM
Jim/Jan ... He is back to second

The second as reported to me is a double blind very tight with a key hole at 275

Open to the 4th:


Looks like there were some dogs that were initially reported to have been dropped that look to have been carried.

10-03-2010, 05:18 PM
13 dogs to the watermarks in the Am. We're just now headed down the hill to see what we're running because they had to wait till the Open finished.

And yes, it's 5:15. Uh oh. :)

Go Lauren! Good luck to you and that 'puppy' in a big AM!

Good luck to the rest of my buddies too!

Prepare to point all the trucks and turn on the headlights.

Congratulations to all placing dogs
Except Robby’s, Steve’s and Vaughn’s
Looks like Steve’s dog is now second in open points
GO MIAH, very hot

Robby, I'm sure Ted is looking forward to seeing Skeeter at N. TX
Might be there myself
So look out

Lauren Hays’ Slider received Merrit in the Amateur
Very nice young dog

Congrats to Bobby and Dealer!!!!

10-04-2010, 10:06 AM
Thanks DeWitt! I was proud to complete Slider's first All Age stake and get a greenie!!

Fun trial, lots of good dog work and creative scrambling on the judges part to get that Am done before dark.

Way to go Miah and Stephen on the 2nd, and way to go Pacer on the 4th!

Also big congrats to Bobby and Dealer on the 4th in the Am. . . he's looking sharp!

10-04-2010, 01:17 PM
Congratulations to Bounce and Troy on a JAM in the Open as well. Bounce did a great job on the last series, just a little short on the last bird but a great line. I didn't see the rest of it but heard it was good too.

10-04-2010, 04:05 PM
Cograts to all of the placers. Especially my friends Lauren/Slider and Troy/Bounce. Both of these young dogs are doing great work.

10-04-2010, 05:14 PM
Congrats to Linda Noga and Ruger for Jamming both the Open and the Am.

Congratulations to all who finished and placed. I can't comment on the rest of the amateur, as I went out in the first. But that first series of the amateur was a real meat grinder. I like them that way even though we didn't do it. Very tough first series, but fair.

Much respect to all those who went down there to run on Danny's home turf and more than held their own.

Jacob, sorry we missed you. I was expecting you to be leading the Farmer cheering section with a megaphone and pom poms.
