Are you speaking in general, or specifically about this event?

If you are speaking specifically about this event, you are speaking about one of the judges on his first assignment. This particular judge has worked very hard for quite a few years to learn how to train his own dog, attended many seminars to learn bird placement/wind/terrain, and general dog knowledge. He has worked alot of events with jobs from bird steward, marshall, gun captain, and chairman. He has supported Clubs in several states, contributed to Retriever Sports from his heart. His honesty is unquestionalble, and he has served his Country in the Air Force during War Time.

Can he be expected to be an excellent judge his first time out, probably not,however the fact that he stood at the line so folks can run there dogs should be enough to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I would doubt that many of us were perfect our first time judging. Please consider what you state, and make sure it is important enough to possibly deter a judge from becoming a good judge in the future.

Plus he has been an excellent HT judge.

We couldn't make it, but the judging panel for the minor stakes was a real attraction for us. My wife ran her first ever dog event under Mike--a JH where he was incredibly nice and helpful for someone who was about to throw up from nervousness. Now that she is running Qs it would have been fun to see Mike in the chair. And then there is John Fallon. Never laid eyes on the guy but would love to see what he is like in real life after reading his posts on RTF for years.

Who cares? It's his first post. Obviously came on here with an agenda. I would just ignore it.

EDIT*

The original poster has contacted me and expressed regret to me and also to the club for casting a negative light upon the event and the club.

It sounded extremely sincere.

To that person, if you meant it, I'd suggest you also contact the folks who run the club and let THEM know your feelings. I'm just a guy with a website. I did not work my tail off to run a trial.

Per what I heard, Alan Pleasant got second and third. Second was Kippy's Bullet. Rex Bell got 4th. It was a great weekend and a well run trial. Thanks as always to John for his grounds!
