    Anybody know if vendors and/or merchandise sales are set up during the whole event or just specific times?

    Thanks, Tom, for the link to the blog. Of course, now that I've read about Flight D, I need an antacid and a stiff drink! Sounds like a tough test. Cleo is number 77 and will run tomorrow.

    just an update. i dont know if this is normal but a buddy there said that all groups will face the same test each series. so like today all groups triple with flyer. rooster phesants. diversion poison bird with blind and honor. only thing different is the properties

    hopefully this means all tests finish at the same time. C which is the on my buddy is in is on dog #29

    Flight B/3 Pond was direct and challenging..... #128 started this morning and #45 ended today out of 160 dogs. Taking about 10 minutes per dog. Still have little over
    half of the dogs to run tomorrow......My Fire runs tomorrow. Good Luck to everyone.

    None of the flights will finish before late today (sunday.) no partial call callbacks so info won't be available until likely late tonight or early AM. D finished last night at 715 PM w/ dog #42. Good solid test but difficult. I expect we'll lose 1/3 of the flight if things keep going as they did yesterday.

    Flight D was pretty ugly to start. Lots of picked up dogs and double handles. Apparently the test looks lots different from the line as opposed to the gallery. Flyers have been FAST. Big roosters.

    I would be surprised if all flights finish at the same time. As I understand it, that was the reason for different tests last year....to move things along when one group finished earlier than another.

    A lot will depend on how many dogs finish each group....If one group is weak or one strong that will be the difference in when they finish...Hopefully mechanics will go good for all of them especially when making the move from one test to another...Steve S
