Anyone have news on the Open yet?

Open started with a triple which was scrapped at 10:45. Replaced with a land/water double with a long blind up the middle, birds go down, run the blind, then pick up the marks. They are getting plenty of answers with several pickups on the blinds, and handles on the "first" memory bird.

First set up was scrapped because everyone seemed to be doing. I think there was a significant wind change that gave the test away. Was a good setup the day before!

We had 17 dogs back to the 3rd series of the derby. Threw a big triple and 13 out of 17 dogs brought all 3 chickens home. We had 7 tough marks nothing was easy!!! I feel like I've been on a whirlwind trip with 67 open dogs and 34 derby dogs this weekend!
Great weather, great cojudge, and gooddogs to watch!
I get home at 1030 on Monday morning! !!!

Chad looks like they threw your Derby triple in the AM! 21 of 60 finishing a major. I'm sure 15 of em' thought they won. No reply necessary. Glad you had a good time.

Fire N Ice.The four series they did got their answers with clear placements.Yes, I was there and watched about 90% of the work. I gunned for the whole thing.

So it is a bad thing to not slaughter the dogs up front? A bunch of people got to play for more than one series and had a good time rather than going home 15 minutes after they got there Saturday. And also maybe there were some pretty good dogs there that hung in rather than mediocre dogs running a "derby triple" as was suggested. Wish more judges were like the ones that judged the PRTA Amateur.

Wetdog did I meet you? Nice test with the judges letting the dog /handler take themselves out. Didn't need to pencil whip. The first series was a land triple with the memory bird up the middle at about 430 yds thrown left to right against a tree lineand then retired, just off line a log at about 200 yards that short stopped a lot of dogs and at about 300 yds a clump of berry bushes that a number dogs thought must be the holding blind, they need to punch past that another 130 yds, # 2 was to the left at about 200 yds thrown left to right and retired, flyer 3 # 3 was more angle back left to right at about 195 yds.Very tough scenting conditions because of wild mint.Lost 1/2 the field in the first series.

Yep.Instead of a clicker you use nasal spray.
And of course get a black dog. :)

I might comment that the Amateur judges ran a really nice Qualifying as well. Also they let the dogs play and only eliminated the ones that dropped themselves. They had pretty clear winner and placements at the end, but many got to run all 4 series. Thanks for judging and not eliminating.
