    Bon,

    If you can't identify all the old codgers in folding chairs, think how the rest of us feel :) I did identify a friend looking very frozen yesterday, though

    Otey, It used to be and still can be. Certainly worth the drive to give it a shot as it is pretty storied. Besides, since I won't be there, there is a chance the sky will be black with 'em for you.

    Fine by me. They could change the rules to require that handlers actually shoot the ducks from the line or whatever. My point is that the rules do not say that nor do they say that a handler has to...

    Are they supposed to simulate hunting or are they supposed to test the dog on skills that would make it a good hunting dog.

    If the former, they do a really terrible job, if the latter, pretty good.

    No idea who Wayne is or his preferences but the rules say:

    Where does it say one has to look at the birds? Maybe by looking at my dog, I am ensuring that the fake gun is not directing the dog's...

    Where did you come up with that? Where in the rules does it say that? If the intent was to have handlers look at the bird instead of at the dog, why does the rule say shoulder the fake gun instead...

    I have seen warnings but nobody ever dropped. When I am holding the fake gun, I *usually* remember to put it in the general vicinity of my shoulder when the bird is in the air--or thereabouts. I...

    The committee is either trolling everyone or ESPN paid them to do something odd every week so they can talk about it on the radio and sportscenter all week.

    Are you saying I can't run the marks until you call my dog's number? I will say that it does bug me a little bit that the terms are not defined in the rules, but perhaps that is because I spend too...

    Technically easy--just use tags for each dog. In practice, though, they are always behind. Probably not too hard if they planned to do it before hand (and don't forget with all that is going on)...

    John, I agree with you (and Doug) that if you run a double with a blind the rules would allow one to judge the birds thrown as marks.

    By my definition, that it is neither a mark nor a blind so not scored except in terms of how it affects the dogs work on the blind, it should not be picked up, generally, IMO. This is a 'should not'...

    Interesting question, Tammy, at least for FT rules. HT rules are much more clear.

    My thoughts off the top of my head for FTs--and I would not be surprised if folks with more experience or a copy...

    The generosity of those who let us use their land for our doggie games (and other pursuits) is truly amazing. There are some really great folks in this sport.

    Although controversial, this is one case that I want to see Sheriff Joe have free reign to mete out his creative form of justice.

    I'd say mixed. Some folks I know run every weekend regardless. Some that are interested in the MN tend to ease up after the qualification but come back for a few before it starts (mostly to get a...
