The PRTA trial at Twin Bridges, MT, starts in the morning with the Open (70 entries) and the Qualifying. The Qual is a small field so it should be done in one day.

Cross your fingers it doesn't rain. There are flood warnings on the news for places all over Montana.

I gave the Open judges two new Write in the Rain packs plus a template from Lee Houser, have no idea what they have planned but it should be interesting

Friday morning, hubby called from the trial grounds. Not very good cell reception.

Open had started. Tough first series. A triple. Dogs have to cross a fast moving river 4 times to get the 3 birds.
1. cross river to get to flyer
2.-3. have to cross river twice to get the short bird
4. have to cross river once to get the long bird.

Some dogs are having trouble per the gallery. Don was over at the Qual running Sally so he did not see the beginning of the Open. Had been at the Open only long enough to watch 2 dogs and neither had been able to do the test.

That's about all I could get out of his scratchy call via cell phone. Not raining but rain expected later today. Flood warnings still in effect at the town of Twin Bridges but not at the trial grounds.

Helen,

Any news? How's the Open going? How's the weather? Can you get through?

Hope all is well there at the trial and in town. Thinking of everyone!

Got a scratchy short cell phone call from Hubby at 4:45 p.m. Bad news and good news
Both Saber and Ruby are out of the Open.

Tealcreek's Early Riser (Chris Hatch) got 4th in the Qualifying.
Flyway's Long Tall Sally (Don Graves) got the RJ.

Sally is running her first Amateur at this trial. So far, she had a good first series and good land blind. Water blind is in the morning.

Then I lost the phone call. Don't know how Riser is doing in the Amateur. Both are pretty young girls and Don said they are higher than kites.

We are hoping that Riser and Sally make it to the last series of the Amateur.

FLOODING in Twin Bridges. Don was just getting into town when he called... water was right up to the road and getting on it. Our trailers are parked at the fairgrounds next to the river. Hope they aren't floating. Don, Chris, and other trialers have been out at the trial grounds all day. They may have to move the trailers -- if they can get to them.

I hope they can get the RVs out. Not sure where they can go with them. There is a RV park in Dillon. The field at Bill's is probably flooding as well. Good luck to Don and others.

Congratulations to Carma, John, Alice, and especially Vicki on the good showing in the Am! Vicki's Clipper who got the RJ has only been running field trials for about 2 years and Clipper comes from a show background (Winroc). All the training with Rob E. is really paying off.

Thank you guys! That first series was one of the most difficult and fun test I have run. I'm sorry I wasn't able to pass your water blind, but it was a thrill to do well on that first series test. From what I heard you didn't let down after that one either.

I emailed Anna and she said that he had a run in with a porcupine:( Fortunately, none on the head/face - just on the back end. Should be fine!
