They scrapped the first series of the Open and apparently the new setup is taking a very looooong time.

Yea, heard it was a five bird test. Shoot a bird out of the left station (mom and pop), shoot the far right hand bird, pick that up, then run a blind and come back and shoot the pop side of the mom and pop and then the last bird. Ya better get some pencil and paper to write that down. Should take a while.

Big congrats to Steve and Jan - could Rory be following in his mother's footsteps? Big shoes to fill - his mother, Gracie, was a great, great dog that was lost way too young! And, congrats to Sylvia, Laurie and Judy on a different but also wonderful Gracie's performance. Must be something in the name....hmmmm

sorry to nag - any more open news?

Last report I received they were still running
The Wb. It has a sluice next to a scented point
with Tulies involved where you lose sight
of dog for a few. They were almost half way done
close to 11:00 am- have heard nothing since then.

Just updated: 10 to 4th - do not have numbers-
Only know Farmer has 5 back. This is all 2nd hand and
could be easily wrong.

If anyone knows more please post.

Congratulations to both Steve and Danny on the wins. I had the privilege of training with both gentlemen a few weeks ago in MN at Danny's place.

Thanks everyone! Steve and Rory were really clicking as a team this weekend.

We have had a fabulous vacation visiting with relatives and training dogs in MN and on the gorgeous and wild Upper Peninsula of Michigan amongst the moose, bear and wolves.

We would like to thank the Mississippi Headwaters RC members for their hard work ~ this trial was an excellent team effort and truly a class-act. Thanks also go to the Amateur Judges who put on straight-up, non-convoluted (yet difficult) marking tests and blinds. It was a pure pleasure to run this trial and we thank all of the very nice contestants and workers who made it all possible.

We will be back as we loved Northern Minnesota (especially Bemidji) ~ where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the dogs are above average!
