    Ted and Darrin, that is exactly my point. I DID read the rule book on this and was still surprised at the relative ease of qualifying to judge a minor in a FT versus a junior hunt test. I feel I do...

    Is this for real? I mean this is ALL it takes to be a minor stake judge? No proof of running any trials, much less taking home a ribbon? This explains quite a bit of the set ups I have seen:). I...

    Sherri, I agree, that is why I tried to lighten things up a little. I think the reason it will never go away is because we field dog owners are embarrassed by what is displayed to the public as...

    If your dog seems to be a bit excited, do not try to hold onto him while walking down a muddy slope to the line. I know this. Have fun! Junior is over with way too soon!

    Not so. I had a problem with a switch on my "new" G3. They would not repair, only offered a reconditioned unit for $125. My husband repaired it for $7. Dave, is that particular battery patented?
