The Open is starting with an interrupted triple. Watch a long center bird thrown right to left in an open field and a short left mark thrown left to right into dry cover. There is water on the way to both birds and the terrain to the long bird is gently rolling. Then turn and run a blind along a tree line on the left and angling down a dirt road to a mound. When the dog comes in with the blind, the handler signals for the flyer on the right thrown left to right. Pick up the triple with the first two gunners retired.

So far the dogs are having no problem with the flyer or the short retired. They want to go wide to the right, away from the trees and the road on the blind. They take a good initial line out toward the long mark, but there must be water or mud about 2/3 of the way out there because they all seem to flare left or right enroute.

The sky is overcast now but should get sunny and warm as the day goes on. The wind is light and variable. The dogs seem to wind the blind on the mound even though wide to the right. I'll keep you posted if anything changes.

Judy -
Thanks! As always, very detailed and helps greatly to visualize the test; just as if I was there in person. Much appreciated.

Would appreciate early reports and infor, if available on the Q and Derby tomorrow if possible. I have a young pup in the Derby.

The only thing I have heard on the Qual is that a Gonia dog won and Sharon Collins and Jet took second.

The Amateur has an in-line triple fading right to left in a gently rolling field with a tree line in the background. All birds are thrown right to left. First bird down is the middle distance bird in the center and the gunner retires into a lay down blind. The second bird down is the long one on the left which lands in a "cove" in the tree line and the gunner retires behind a holding blind in the trees. The flyer is the shortest mark on the right.

The two shorter marks have not been causing much problem except for some overruns with deep hunts before coming up with the middle retired. Many of the dogs are running deep and to the right of the long bird before working their way back to the area of the fall. There is an inviting open field to the right behind where the gunner was standing. Others are finding where the gunner was standing and hunting the area until they come up with the bird. So far only a couple have gone straight to the area of the fall.

Update on Amateur. Something changed -wind or movement below the house in the background where people are gardening, but suddenly a series of dogs had problems and handled or picked up. Now more are having success.

Just heard Tide from our first Kicker x Sierra litter won the derby. He has run 2 derbies, first one when he was 12 months old and he earned a Jam, and now his 2nd derby today at only 14 months old.

Sierra now has 2 Derby winners this year. Tide (Kicker x Sierra) And Levi (Magic x Sierra).

Congrats to Mark and Tide on the great work.
