    Yep. That's the AKC agility model. I don't understand why that doesn't gain more support, other than those that are abusing the current system are going to be limited by the random draw.

    You've got to do the WB after one of the marks.

    That's correct. The handler has the choice on the order of the marks. But look at the relation of the marks to the 6th series, and tell me which order you as a handler would select attempt to pick...

    Am I seeing this right? The water blind is almost where the holding blind for the long RG in the 6th series. And the marks are on either side of the short retired gun from the 6th series?
