Any news on the Open setup?

I heard that it was similar to one to the series that was run in the Nationals there. A triple run off of a long levee with dogs having a very hard time staying on the levee and not falling off into the other birds. The work is in favor of the judges from the early reports that we have had with just 2 of the first 6 doing the test and not improving a lot from there. I saw the National test and can picture the location but my information is from Scott Harp thru my husband and on to me so there is a lot of room for error.

Big test for the Open off the dam between lake 37 and 38. Derby second series was also a National caliber test as they ran a tough double on lake 34 with a similar line as the National did when it was last held here. Only a couple of dogs really did the test.

Five made it; they only lost one in the last on a super single. All the tests proved to be challenging. Very good bird placement.

2nd pic is the (super single) 4th series , estimated 450+yds bird was landing in the cat tails on the right where the worker was standing at time of pic .

Open is progressing slowly.
Tried a water blind yesterday PM with 18 or 19 dogs. Ran about 10 and scrapped it ... nobody could do it.
Started over this AM with a new one ... they almost all did it.
So 4th started about noon or later with about 16. (Don't have all the numbers)
Big triple. First dog did it ... took 15+ minutes. I left after that.

That Second Series was Killer. i wonder if other derby tests are as tough. I am fairly new to FT game, I have seen few derbies and have run few with my old dog but I am not sure what to expect at the Derby test nowadays? I thought second series test “would be decent test for Q dogs” but i guess game has changed a little in the past few years i've been out of it.

I thought that derby test was the hardest second series I have seen. I wasn't judging, but I thought a couple of the five dogs the got called back went back to old fall.
