I was helping marshal at the Derby so I was only able to get away to watch a little of the Open in the afternoon. They had a triple with two retired. First bird down was across some technical water, a single gunner, very difficult to see in the afternoon with sun behind it, and tight behind the flyer station. Next down was a really short flyer right in front. Both those birds were thrown right to left. The go bird was thrown/shot by two gunners who immediately retired. It was thrown left to right and came very quickly after the flyer was shot. Sometimes the bird was in the air before you could hear the shot so some dogs had a hard time picking it out. There was also an honor. I saw maybe 10 or 12 dogs run and nearly half were pickups and most of the others had pretty good hunts on the long bird. I did see Casey run, Marie, and he got all three birds with a bit of a hunt on the last one. They did not finish the first series today so will resume in the morning.

Derby callbacks to the 4th tomorrow morning (20 dogs):

3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28

Happy to provide whatever info I can. If I hadn't been marshalling most of the day, I could have given more updates as the day progressed. I'm hoping today I can get back to the motorhome for lunch and let you know what's happening. I'll try to have the Derby results and Open callbacks. The Open got a late start yesterday due to some mechanical problems with the setup. The Am starts at 8:00 this morning and the Qual will start when the Derby is done.

The Amateur first series was a triple with two retired. Long gun in the middle thrown right to left down first, flyer on the left thrown right to left was second, go bird on the right thrown angled sharply back left to right and into cover. A channel of water looped through the test so the dogs had to cross it after coming off the mound for all three birds. The flyer was shot across the channel such that the dogs could either cross the channel, run the right bank, and get back into the water to cross for the bird or swim down the channel to the bird. When going for the long mark, the dogs had to cross the channel again just before reaching the bird. Some dogs had problems with the flyer and hunted behind it. Others had problems with the long mark, heading out into no man's land between it and the flyer. Some had problems swinging off the flyer to see the go bird. The wind changed during the day and either helped or hurt the dogs.

Callbacks to the 2nd series (37 dogs):

2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 43, 45, 49, 51, 53, 54

Judy,

Thank you so much for your wonderful coverage of the trial and descriptions of the set-ups. So glad to see Trek is one of the call backs after the grueling first series of the AM.....also happy to see that Casey made it to the 2nd series of the Open! Your coverage is excellent! Best of luck tomorrow!

The Amateur land blind was tight behind the flyer boxes with three pieces of water to negotiate. Callbacks to the 3rd series tomorrow morning (20 dogs):

2, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 17, 23, 24, 25, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 43, 45, 53

The Open finished it's double land blind and will start again in the morning, but no one at the Amateur had heard any callbacks. Sorry I don't have any information on the Qual other than I heard it was a triple with one retired and, as I drove by, it looked like there was a blind as well. Will try to get more information tomorrow if no one posts in the meantime.

P.S. Thanks for the good luck wishes.

Thanks, Diane. Trek may have gone out on the water blind but I could not have been more thrilled with what he did - or maybe I should say didn't do. We have been working on poison birds which are hard for him. He wants that bird in the hand, not the one in the bush. And, although he took a good initial line, after a couple of casts, he was headed on a beeline for the poison bird. I figured it was all over but decided to give one last whistle and he stopped on a dime a few feet from the poison bird. I gave him a big back cast and ... he took it! The rest of the blind missed a couple of key elements, but he got the bird in the bush in lieu of the one in the hand so I was really pleased with him and that's what counts.

The 4th series of the Open was in progress when I left but now there is a thunderstorm overhead - thunder, lightning, and heavy rain at times. I hope they have called a storm delay. It's a water quad with two retired and a third semi-retired, all three across the water. The flyer is on the left and the go bird, the route to which is on land, on the right. The two guns in the middle are a flower pot with the gunners standing on opposite sides of two small trees adjacent to each other. I believe they retire to a single holding blind. When the flyer gunners sit down, they are semi-retired. The order is left middle first, flyer converging toward the left middle second, right middle third, and righthand go bird 4th. There have been a number of handles so far. The callbacks to the 4th series (17 dogs) are:

6, 11, 15, 24, 27, 32, 38, 42, 45, 48, 49, 52, 64, 73, 74, 77, 82

I am so right there with you....it's just a matter of time until we get these kids in line for the colors. I can so appeciate how happy you are with Trek's performance...what a good dog !

That's exactly why Rebel is sitting on the bench for the rest of the season. He thinks he knows better than his handler which bird to get. Is it really a golden thing? I was just thinking it was Rebel's Aries hardheadedness. LOL.

I'm afraid I didn't stay around in the thunder and lightning to see the end of the Open and get the results. But I do know that Lorna Kolstad and Magic won. I saw a handful of dogs run when I was there. Only one did a clean job and that was Magic. And it wasn't just clean, it was commendable. So congratulations to Lorna and Magic on the Open win.
