From a worker bee at trial - open is a nice triple - a good 'marking test' utililizing excellent use of terrain coupled with hen pheasants and almost no breeze. Beautiful day - especially for the judges!!

Amateur - triple- light wind. See if I can properly describe it - first bird down was middle long retired - thrown left to right and landing in heavy cover beneath some trees (remember this for blind) - second bird was to the right a full 90 degrees from the middle bird - thrown right to left and again landing in some rough below some trees- this bird was uphill from the line ; the flyer was a hen pheasant probably 45 degress left of center.

When approaching the line, handlers had to get dogs to focus on middle and right hand bird- most lined their dogs up more right to catch the middle and right hand bird and then swung the dogs around to catch the flyer. A few dogs never wanted to look at the right hand bird after looking at the center and catching the flyer station off to the left; there was a large handful of exceptional jobs and a lot of so so jobs and a few handles and pickups.

The judges generously called back all but the handles and pickups. They then set up the land blind. It was almost a no-see-um entry with about 50' of rise from the line that you could move up as the dog crested this area and started slightly down hill past The flyer crates pssitioned on the left from the first series flyer and then also on the left was a bird boy in a chair. After passing those two 'obstacles' the dog went through a slot between two groups of trees the ones on the left being where the middle bird from the first series landed. After the slot a small dry creek or swale was enough to 'swallow' a few dogs and some (many)jobs were hacky in that area. Again the judges were generous with callbacks and dropped only failures and pickups so I believe there are about 20 dogs back.

Both tests were a lot of fun to run and interesting to watch with the gallery cheering on their friends and their friends dogs - for a while I thought I had gone to a field trial and a hunt test broke out! It was fun and even though I am gone after the blind it was a beautiful day - I don't have call backs but I am sure someone will post them.

More tomorrow I hope... good luck to all.

Another WOO HOO to training partners Martha Russell and Robbie Bickley for their Derby placements. Tubby Russell was the winner and Manny Bickley took fourth.

At this time there is no truth to the rumor that Martha will miss National Open set up to run the Blue Sky RC derby in November. You go girl!

Congrats to all finishers. My sources only provided those placements.

I would like to send congrats but don't know which category to put each in.

Good stuff.

I recognize some of those dogs. In fact, I own one that trained right along with them. Don't know if their owners are eligible as "training partners" though.

Guess Dozer missed the honor by a year or two.

Ken,

Since there have been over 120 winners of the Open or Amateur in the history of the club; there have been about 90+ that have "missed" the honor (Traditionally it is only given in the fall since that is when Honcho and Cody both retired). The club would be happy for you to do the research and/or purchase the trophy's for those omitted.

In the end, your training partner is Dozer; that is all the recognition you and Dozer should need. You both did your best, with available time, money, and priority resources.

I would encourage any club to honor previous NFC and/or NAFC award winners with an annual memorial award trophy. The North Texas Retriever Club has been fortunate to have both champions of considerable notoriety in the sport; and I have been honored to work a training bird station with both dogs on many occasions, and several of their progeny.

God bless you and Dozer.................

Bruce
