    There are four different set ups since they are divided into four flights.

    Flint Oak is in a very remote area, most likely very little news will get out during the day, since communications are very limited.

    I do know that three flights are running land tests and one flight is running a combo.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    OK This is via Facebook. Birch test: walk-up triple with a flyer shot second. Pheasants used...double blind and honor.
    Diversion is thrown as a poison bird and you can pick up one or both blinds before retrieving the poison bird.

    Flight D are the ones at Birch. By the way, there are no birch trees located on the site. The previous owners of that part of the land were named Birch(or maybe Burch) so Flint Oak named this area in their honor.

    Just got a phone call from a friend running in Flight D (they haven't run themselves yet). Apparently the field is being pared down rather rapidly - tough series with not a lot of wind and plenty of handles.

    Sending good thoughts to ALL dogs/handlers running in all series!

    Will the series/callbacks be posted somewhere so we can follow the handlers' progress?

    Call backs have been posted in the past, I think. The call back list should be found on the master national web page at some point after the first series is completed. Be patient since everyone is a volunteer and there are many things going on that may require their attention as well.

    With that many dogs in each flight, I'm not looking to see call backs from the first series for a long time ....probably average 8 dogs per hour...do the math ...Steve S
