    Back in the spring when Stan and Nancy had the first official RTF training day I was so happy. We are all seperated by our keyboards and it is a dream of many to be able to come together and run dogs. I chatted with Chris and made up special rtf jamboree training day maple syrup labels that I was going to ship to Nancys place for gifts and maybe a fund raising raffle. Well things built and built and bickering and poking and mean snipes grew and grew and big time official sponcers were announced and it got so out of hand I picked up the phone and called Nancy and spoke person to person. Not a grand conspiracy or secret society. Just two live people talking. And I said, as at the time the main antagonist were a Marc feller and Stan that they were all just 12 year old girls..... I am told that phrase has gotten some use. And it is true. What is it with you guys? With ALL OF YOU GUYS???


    these are some of the jars that were made for the jamboree but never mailed.
    Ken, the syrup was a good idea. It's yours, of course. The weekend went off fine... A good time was had by all. A lot of fun was had and many new friends were made. Hell, a few even let me play! I say let bygones be bygones. Forget the smack talk before the event and remember the good times that were had. All that really mattered was that a lot of folks made new friends and a lot of folks that are new to the game got their dogs exposed to some birds, guns, cover and water. It was great.

    Who created the poll? Who put the choice of "I only train dogs on the internet"? If you didn't want someone to chose it, maybe you shouldn't have made it an option. ...

    fun chance for humor in the dog days of summer. who would think the line would spark a
    "who has the most FC/AFC dogs or who can train a dog for real"
    pissing match. It seems I put up a cute teddy bear and all of a sudden Billy Ray's little girl burst out of it's belly!

That is so far out of bounds and loses you all credibility, you should be ashamed of yourself, solve your personal issues somewhere else, not the RTF
    I agree! That was totally over the top? You should apologize before Bon gets Clint to kick your @ss....

    You post a poll & expect a group as diverse as those who frequent POTUS to read your thoughts . I personally thought the majority of responses contained a level of reason beyond that which created the original poll questions .

    Don't pat yourself on the back for your creation. Some of us are beyond the teenage hearththrob stage .
