Rocky Mountain retriever club did a tremendous job of hosting this event. The teal lodge was great. They evacuated the competitors at the right time. Paul and Laurie Knutson showed what great sportsmanship is like and encouraged us to move there. A great club of hard working members.
The most important handler was Riley Wardlaw handled Twister to earn his Junior Handler pass. They were a great team and gave the Pros a run for their money!
Enjoyed the judging, great stories of bull attacks, bass fishing bs, and Jack Daniels!
KARMA - The return on your entries will increase the sooner you decide to contribute one of your weekends to be in the judge's chair and judge others who have done the same for you.
Heard that congrats need to sent out to my Bro Joel Harris for another win for Billie in the Derby. Also spoke to the most flamboyant Gooser, who said he actually had fun at his first entry in a white coat event. ( thank GOD the water did not get too high at Paul and Julie Knutson's so Gooser would look to wearing that damn speedo)

Gooser did have great fun.. Dont understand the Flamboyant commenthough..
If you ever see me in the water,, "Boyant" isnt the word you would use,,, But anyways,,
I did have great fun,, I crashed and burned in the first series, kinda bummed,, BUT,, the great judges they had for the derby announced that handelers that were dropped would be allowed to "Play all day" just not in contention..
It was a wonderful day,,, learned quite a bit,, and watched a very inspirational dog by the name of Billie.. She is simply amazing..
The Junior handler that ran in the derby was a kick to watch also... That kid had Ice in his veins! nerves of steel!! What fun..
Thank you all for the fun day.

You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

I think It was really special what Paul and Julie Knutson did offering the use of their beautiful grounds..
Hey Daren, Sorry I cant help you with the derby results, but wanted to warn you that this water is heading your way my Nebraskan friend!
See ya in the spring!
