The Open is a tight in-line quad gradually fading up a slope from left to right with two retired. All marks are thrown right to left, and they are thrown in order from the longest on the right to the shortest on the left. The flyer is the second bird down and the second longest mark. There are trees and bushes separating the gunners and marks. The long right hand mark and the second shortest marks are retired. In the valley separating the line from the hillside where the marks fall, there is water enroute to the two shortest marks including a large stand of tules and a large mound enroute to the long mark. I was helping marshal the Am so I did not see a lot of the dogs run, but they seemed to be picking the marks up in a variety of orders and very few were getting them clean. Several that I watched ended up going back to old falls as their hunts brought them close to an earlier mark. They will not finish tonight and will resume in the morning.

The Amateur was a triple with two retired. There were lots of mounds and ponds of running water enroute to all marks. The first bird down was the longest up the middle thrown right to left in front of a row of trees. The right hand bird was thrown second also from right to left just before what looked like a small dike where the land dropped off behind it. The gunner retired downhill at a corner of a dike. The flyer on the left was a walk our flyer, hidden until after the second bird was down. It was shot left to right. Many dogs backsided the second righthand gunner and many went wide to the right on the middle mark as the wind was blowing left to right. 34 dogs were called back to the land blind.

1,2,3,4,6,7,10,12,14,15,16,17,18,20,21,23,25,27,31 ,32,34,35,36,38,39,42,44,45,46,48,50,51,53,56

The land blind was a no-see-um send after which the handler could move to the top of the dike. The line went across running water, up over a mound, along the edge of another mound past the flyer crates and beyond. The end was difficult especially as the sun dropped low and the handlers were in shadow and the dogs couldn't see the handlers.

I'm waiting for callbacks as the darkness descends. There is no cell or broadband service in the campground and I don't want to be left up here in the dark, so I will probably have to wait until tomorrow to post the callbacks.

Qual Callbacks to the 4th series (10 dogs):

1,2,3,4,5,10,11,12,17,19

Amateur Callbacks to the 3rd series (29):

1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 23, 25, 27, 31, 32, 34, 35, 38, 39, 42, 44, 45, 46, 48, 51, 56

The Amateur water blind is a no-see-um start with a dry pop, over a rise, drop down into a ravine, back up to a dike, down into the water, tight along the shore, past two stumps in the water and several grassy spits to a point. Just before the point, the dog can see some decoys and the gunner in a white coat hidden until then behind a tree. The blind continues off the point across another stretch of water and onto land. The dog disappears at several places including for about 20 seconds on the way into the water. So far all are doing the basic blind.

Hubby just called. The Amateur water blind is over. He saifd only 11 out of the 29 are back.
Cross your fingers, our 3 yr. old Sally is one of them. They are now setting up the water marks (at 12:30). Don thinks he and Sally will run at around 3 p.m. as she is far down on the list to run. If she doesn't make it, so be it. We are proud that she made it to the 4th series. Don thought the water blind was a good one, but a tough one. A lot of good dogs got picked up or dropped on the water blind. Heck, a lot of good dogs got picked up or dropped yesterday in the Amateur. Now they are down to just 11.

Sorry everyone. I had to close my laptop quickly to run the water blind and I must have done something and my computer wouldn't start when I tried to post the Am and Open call backs. Had to go back to my motorhome and restore it. Then my broadband clip on broke. Not having a good day.

Open Callbacks to the 2nd which is a double land blind across the hill through the old marks with bird crates from the flyers in there and a remote send on the second blind:

1,4,6,8,9,12,13,16,17,21,24,25,31,32,34,35,45,46,4 8,50,51,52,53,57,59,60,61,62,68,69,71

Amateur Callbacks to the 4th which is probably over by now and I'll have to find out the placings:

7,10,12,14,16,25,34,44,46,48,51

The only thing I heard from the Qual was that Eric Fangsrud and Odin had the only clean round in the final series.

I'll see what I can find out about the Am and Qual placings. Sorry about the delay.

Fred, I replied but it didn't go up. Don't know what I did wrong. Don was in a hurry to drive over to watch some of the Derby. He was told 11 dogs were back in the Am and he was one of them, but he did not get any names. He was off to see one of our puppies run his first Derby.

Sorry,
Helen

That Chopper x Keila litter, if it keeps going like it is going, will have to be talked about as one of the great litters of all time.
