Aw, Man! Wish I could make it, Michelle. Sounds like a great time. And, George is coming up too. Can't beat a $65 entry fee, combined with low entry and great people! Would be really cool to come up and play. You guys are the best!

Watched the first series of the derby. Very nice straight up double that got lots of answers. Memory bird part way up a hill and saw many dogs drive right through the fall and hunt behind. Flier landed in a shady area. Again saw quite a few dogs go deep and had big hunts. Form the dogs I watched I didn't see one dog do a great job on both birds. Sorry didn't have a catalog so don't know call backs.

Qual set ups as I remember them. In my opinion they were all very nice. The judges did a great job and were very fair on the call backs.

First series: Wide open tripple
Right bird station about 225yrds thrown left to right in front of a tree line back drop, bird landed right at the end of the cover where the field opened up.

Middle bird was the flyer station thrown right to left about 150yrds.

Left bird station about 300yrds across the flat field for 250 yrds through a little peice of water then up a hill side. thrown right to left.


I think the order was right, left and flyer.
20 dogs started the test I think 16 were called back.

Land blind:

Same field move the line back maybe 50yrds and to the left. you had to run past the right hand fall area of the first series. Wind was swirling but out in the field one of the gunners told me the wind was pushing right to left. line to the blind was to the right of the old fall by around 40 yards.

I think 11 called back to the water blind.

Water blind: maybe 300yrds. Across a square pond with a small channel in the back left corner. The pond had a few small points coming out just before you got to the channel. Line to the blind was done diagnally across the pond going from right to left.
The bird was placed on the left hand side of the channel maybe 30yrds in.
So from the line the dog had about a 30yrd run to the water where you lost the dog for just a second. swim across the pond past the 2 points. The line was just off the tip of the last point up into the channel which was maybe 30yrds wide.

It was either 6 or 8 dogs called back to the last series.

Water marks: Same piece of water, on the back side of the pond is another small piece of water on the right side . In between the channel on the left and the small piece of water on right is some fairly tall brush.
Right handstation was thrown to the left towards the brush deep of the second small piece of water. maybe 250 yrds

Middle station was at the edge of the water across the pond right in front of the tall brush. bird was thrown to the right. Bird landed on the land. maybe 200yrds.

Flyer staion on the left thrown from the same shore line as the starting line. angled to the left and the gunners did a nice job of letting the bird ride ( at least for the first couple of dogs that I watched). Bird landed out in the pond, for a long angle entry into the water. maybe 125yrds.

Wind was blowing right to left. Order of birds thrown was right to left.

You are 100% correct on everything except every dog took the flyer, then rh bird then lh bird in the land series.
1 dog took the stand by flyer from between my feet!!:shock:

Hope you enjoyed the trial.
