I was wondering the news on the Open today. Does anyone have the Open call backs for tomorrow? Any and all news would be greatly appreciated.

Quite likely they will not finish the Open 1st series today. Middle, about 280 first down, right, 320. 2d down, flyer, 200. Lots of big hunts, handles and pick ups.

The Open was a triple followed by an honor with marks ranging from about 150 for the flyer, nearly 250 for the middle bird and approaching 300 for the long bird. The middle bird was down first thrown left to right from a grove of trees out into the field in a line of cover and retired toward the trees. The second bird down was the long bird on the right thrown right to left into some cover and retired behind a mound of brush. There were at least three similar mounds of brush in line in the field, causing some dogs to wonder which mound it was thrown from. The flyer go bird was on the left thrown left to right. There was a lot of terrain in the field to negtiate including sage, rows of cover, and grass with running or lunging water depending on where the dog crossed on the way to the two long retired marks. Dogs had a hard time watching the long bird because they wanted to swing to the flyer. It was hard to know which bird to pick up second because often dogs wanted the right hand mark but when sent, headed between the two marks and ended up at the short one. There was a variety of work and the wind shifted in direction and intensity causing the test to change somewhat throughout the day.
Congrats on becoming QAA and good going to Art!!! Harry

The Amateur first series was a triple with two retired. The first bird down was the long bird on the left on the side of a sagebrush covered hill in the distance thrown right to left into a green opening in the sage. The second down was in the middle at an intermediate distance. It was thrown left to right into a row of cover. The flyer was on the right and very short, shot right to left and angled back, somewhat pinched to the middle bird. Both retired marks proved difficult for the dogs due to the terrain. There were rows of cover and bushes enroute to both birds as well as a bowl that the dogs disappeared into enroute to the long bird, causing some to angle off line. The sagebrush on the hillside of that long bird was so thick the dogs could not easily get through it and had to wend their way up the hill wherever they could punch through. The going was easier if the dogs went off to the left of the mark and followed the openings in the sage, but many dogs that tried to take the line to the mark had a difficult time.
I don't have all the Open placements, but I do know the first two:
1st - Buddy - Brown/Fangsrud
2nd - Ammo - Petrovish
