if anyone is interested I am going to attempt and post realtime dog by dog results of the Open and Amateur stakes at this weekend's trial, I may also post some derby results if I am no longer in the Amateur, since Clint is judging both the Open/Derby

my Twitter account/name is adamdad...I will accept all follower requests and if there is a particular dog you would like a picture or report on, please let me know..I have a new Blackberry with a Twitter app and I usually get very good reception at the FT grounds and its more convenient than setting up my laptop

my goal is to give a description of not only the test but a quick synopsis of what each dog does since its a very small field (34 Open, 37 in Amateur)

I am # 3 with Nola and # 20 with Brig, both in the Amateur:D:D

Got here just before sunset, the water is very high and a couple of the roads are closed or impassible...bring your bug spray or your Thermocell...

I have no idea what Linda/Clint have in store..in all fairness I will not be around during set up and Clint and I NEVER discuss his judging assignments,he is a real stickler for integrity...

IMHO its going to be a "watery" trial, lots of unseen running water

rise and shine...meeting at 7:15am with the crew, gunners up at 8am sharp, I know the location but not the test itself...34 starters in the open...barring any unforseen circumstances it should be no problem seeing two series today,Temps are supposed to get into the high 70's,bright and sunny, light winds in the am...Good Luck to all the competitors

the judges got thru 3 series/tests today here is a synopsis for those that didnt follow on Twitter

1st series was a wide open triple, long memory bird left thrown right to left then retired, middle bird thrown left to right and retired into a layout blind, the flyer thrown left to right was the short bird...up steps the test dog with Barb (Furlano) Pampy and flat out steps on the triple....it was the kiss of death...the first 4 dogs all picked up...the judges let everyone play and only those that picked up did not come back for the land blind


2nd series- 23 dogs back, a sidehill land blind about 243 yds (electronically measured) slope from right to left, again the judges let the contestants play and only dropped 5 dogs

3rd series- a very tough water blind...as described by one of my training partners "a real working man's blind"..Judge Linda Harger specifically told the handlers they had to challenge the line in order to advance..it was a long land entry that drops off into water, there was land on the right which was the wrong side but a green grassy point left which the judges wanted your dog to get on and the off,back out to a cove and the bird on the opposite bank...according to long time Lee Kay trialers they had never seen this blind before and asked the judges how they found this particular blind ? the judge answered the high water made the blind a natural when they were inspecting the grounds...I am sure many will come back and run this blind after the trial is over...12 dogs called back for the water marks starting at 8am sharp....my guess is that its anyones trial to win, PIN TO WIN..I will be at the amateur so I may not find out till later who won it

Bring your bug spray !!!! the skeeters got me yesterday on the one area I did not cover.....my hands...Today there was a constant breeze which kept them away, but I also wore a large amount of Avon Skin So Soft bug repellent w/sunscreen...the bug repellent worked the sunscreen did not;)

Qual Results from Friday:
1st Huck~ Brian Johnston
2nd Ty ~ Danny Wright
3rd Reese ~ Marty Leavitt
4th Cutter ~ Marty Leavitt

I may have gotten Reese & Cutter mixed up if I did I apoligize, but I am pretty sure that is the order.

Arnie only had Keno running in the 4th series so he would be the 4th place dog.

Thanks to Linda Harger and Clint Mallari for judging the Open and the Derby...thanks to Dave Terry and Mike Ostler for judging the Amateur and the Qual..Ted Barker for marshalling the Open and john Schmidt for marshalling the amat and still being able to set up and run his dogs in different stakes

also thanks to Alan Madsen and his crew from the Northern Utah RC for making us feel welcome and being first one there and last ones to leave..


7 dogs back for the Derby....not sure about the amateur...we started with 36 ( 1 scratch) and only 16 remained for the second series...on a personal note Nola and Brig were not among those that survived:(

I am here at the derby, 7 dogs remain, the judges appear to be using the marks from the first series in the Open, except no flyer...the dogs will have to cross a small pond and then to an open fields with knee high cover, its a double with the wind and sun directly at the handlers back..whether we see a 4th series may depend on the attrition from this series..they are good honest marks, no gimmicks

RJ- Ruby-George Rogers

JAM's - Floyd- Laura Foster
Ryely- Linda Erwin


along with the fact that all of these dogs marked very well....Linda Erwin and Ryely jammed the Derby...big deal you might say, except for the fact that Ryely is only 11 months old, and it was his first Derby...way to go Team Erwin..I may be biased but he is a great looking dog , a big yellow male out of FC AFC Suncrest Wild Oats...will post a picture later
