If the weather is anything like it's here in Sulphur, it's a chilly, rainy setup. I'll be there earlier than I thought & will post if it hasn't been done by then.

Take the Lebeau exit off I-49 just north of Washington, La. heading northeast. Go about two miles to hwy 182. Take that 6 miles north and you will see the Acadiana FT signs.

Jacob, we will be at Cafe Josephine around 7pm tonight, come and join us.

Will do. I believe there were just a little less than 20 dogs left to run The 1st in The Open. I'm not positive though. That was 2nd hand info. I'll check to see about when The Qual will get started on The Water Marks & might try to catch a little @ The Open. All depends on the roads.

I've posted everything I know. I literally post callbacks immediately after they're given out. I didn't make it back to The Open after this morning. All I know is they're running The Water Marks in The AM (Morning.) & it's going to be cold. I mean cold!!!!

General notes:

The weather Friday was rain. Roads were pretty bad and some of the tests dragged a little because of the conditions. The rain moved out late Friday and it has turned clear and cold with a brutal wind. Sunday is expected to be 27 degrees with a stiff wind.

I do not have call backs for the majors. Sorry.

Open first series was a trip. Double retired outside birds with a flyer up the middle. After picking up the go flyer, the dogs had to pick up the retireds across a ditch and hedgerow that once they punched, put them in a position to suck back to the flyer station. Very, very challenging and nice test. I think 31-33 dogs (or so) made it to the land blind. I do not know what the land blind was as we left to go to another stake. I could hear a pop, so I guess there was poison involved. No idea how far they got, or if they made it to the water blind.

Am: First was a sorta in-line trip r-l-m flyer in a bowl. R and L birds retired. Again, a very nice test. Judges in control. No idea on callbacks, as we just made a brief visit.

Q: Rob E. and Bro turned in a spectacular set of water marks in a strong crosswind double to take the blue. It was so cold and windy, there was no gallery to see it, which was a shame. I happened to walk up to ask the judges a question and saw the run. Did manage to snap a pic as Rob was setting up for the retired bird.

Derby: Jacob has posted the callbacks. The third will begin in the morning. I expect they will use the Q marks, w/o a retired, but who knows?

Overall, the tests have been challenging, but fair, IMO. The weather has dragged the trial a bit.

Jacob, very nice meeting you! Sorry to see the fender bender on your vehicle. Bummer. Good luck tomorrow!

Yes sir, it was brutal yesterday morning. I stepped out the car @ The Qual & realized I left my heavy jacket in Sulphur. So I got back in the car & went to The Open. :lol::lol:

They did announce yesterday evening that the roads dried up significantly & we are moving further down the road for The 3rd.

Was nice meeting you as well. Sorry I didn't get out to talk much yesterday. There was no way Penny was getting out there & freezing to watch the dogs. I figured if she took time off to come watch dogs for a weekend, I probably didn't need to leave her alone for extended periods of time. As far as the little accident, eh. It is what it is.
