Well I'm having a drink at Char-Broil....

Open was a triple shot around the horn L to R.

Both L and M bird were retired in well brushed up blinds, flier to the right.

L and M thrown toward each other and "pinched". Flier thrown l to r.

Mixed results.

Tough land test and hot ,I shot fliers at around 350 yard go bird, the first two marks are close together at maybe 200 and 250 thrown at each other very tight, middle mark has lost alot of dogs as the wind is creating havic with them, so the marks are maybe 30 yards apart,,,, we helped alot of dogs pick up the middle bird to keep them from overheating....They were still on the first series when i left at 4:00

Thanks Ted, It was quite exciting. The FCRC members worked their collective butts off and they deserve many kudos.

Still winding down from a great weekend! I can tell you all this, if everyone had as much fun as I did this weekend judging, there would be a line of folks wanting to judge every weekend!!
First thanks to the Fort Collins retriever club for making folks feel like Kings or Queens for the weekend. Their members worked so very hard to ensure every stake was up and running and made sure that the judges had everything they needed!! The fed us like Royalty!! Larry "Prime Rib Master" Howell made the best Prime Rib I have ever eaten in my life!! I don't know if you all know this but I like to eat on occasion :cool: and this was the best piece of meat I have ever partaken of, you could cut it with a plastic knife and fork!! Jeff, John, Mark, Zach, and Larry work their tails off with the rest of their members to ensure everyone has a great weekend! Especially thanks to John who is for sure in the running for "Marshal of the year!"
Second thanks to my co-judge and other judges! What a great group of folks!! We had a ton of fun and enjoyed each others company all weekend long. Newt , Scott, Larry, Alice, and Carol are not only great dog folks they are great folks!! Carol I know you are reading this as I know now that you are a RTF "lurker":-P thank you so much for teaching me a ton this weekend! I hope I did not ask too many dumb questions:rolleyes: Carol is a great person and wonderful judge! Thank You Carol!!
Third and for sure not last, thanks to all the contestants for coming and and showing off your dogs talents!! You were a great group to watch!! As a judge it is cool to see handlers reactions when their dogs crush a test!!! I saw several fist pumps a jump or two and several loud ovations from the crowd!!

Caffeine High Regards,

Aaron

You've heard of the cast and curse method. This was the cast and scratch/jig method. Lainee held her composure just enough to get the cast, then spend the next few minutes dancing on the line. AND I DO MEAN DANCING:rolleyes::p:p

I don't care who you are, that there is FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron and Carol, thanks for putting on a fun test to run. Scott and Newt, it's always good seeing you in Colorado, thanks for volunteering your time. Jeff, Mark, Larry, John and the entire FCRC group, you always have the smoothest running trial in Colorado, maybe not the coolest but definately the most well run event. Thanks for everything.

And I missed it? I am truly lame for not running both weekends!

I'll tell you a story about sweat bees and water screening on an archaeological site in eastern Colorado some time......... speaking of ants in your pants.
