I'm guessing the over under would be 50! Anyone care to guess if it is a quad being thrown? I guessing double and a blind, but what do I know I'm at work while there are a 116 entries in the Open!!! Should be plenty of time to update from the trial!!!

Hope it is a nice day regards,

How about a single with a double blind. One water one land. Come back tomorrow morning with 12 dogs and be done by 1 o'clock or so.

between Rorem,Eckett and Farmer they have over 50% of the field in the Open..the marshal has his/her work cut out for them

Does that surprise you Bon?

Does that surprise you Bon?


does it surprise me ? NO

do I like the trend ? mixed feelings, got a few friends that are among the Rorem armada, including an impregnated AFC Rosa Barks

will it change ? Not a chance

I am happy for the club,but I am concerned and disappointed that through sheer attrition many dogs that should will not see the second series..

if it were me , I would throw a wide open triple and let the test itself sort it out...but time management will definitely come into play

Having judged more than my share of these monsters I have great empathy with the judges, both of whom I know and consider friends.

I have not seen the grounds but the area is coastal plain, very flat, cow pastures now, no more rice farming which made for great marking. I wish them well, glad I am staying home and training this weekend and running a 48 dog Open and 47 dog Amateur in Alabama next weekend.

Ed's description of the grounds is spot on. We were there 3 weeks ago training on the Lohman Ranch and it does not have much in the way of terrain, however it does have very nice water with lots of ins and outs as well as the opportunity to get back away from it. We do not get to do that very often here and it showed in my dogs.:confused: I saw some rice fields, but did not get to train on them.

Any one know the set up?

Paul Rainbolt

Triple, inline, middle flier slightly deeper, walk up sit your dog, birds called in 5 seconds. A lot of pick ups a lot of handles.

Thanks, sounds similar to other setups the past few weeks, to bad the sheer number of entries dictates the type of test, bottom line with 116 entries the judges need to at least cut it in half, can't blame the judges.

Interesting that there is a 5 second limit before the birds are shot?? I have never seen this. Ed or Bon, can you chime in and let us know the mechanics of something like this, and what does the rule book say about this type of constraint?
