    Land triple. Middle bird first 135 yards L-R on ridge. second bird on right thrown straight back slightly toward mid. bird. in a valley 100 yards retired. Line very tight to middle bird. Flier at left 130 yards up a hill R-L. wind at 13 mph. slightly l- r. but feels downwind. most dogs blow through to middle or go right thru opening into no mans land. 50% are handling.

    Description of the Amateur provided by Kine.

    Glenda your numbers are wrong, you just gave me a mild heart attack...........................off to the hospital

    #11 is back
    There is very little difference in dogs, but that little difference makes a big difference. The difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.

    I guess we have two National threads here. I posted the Puppy Stake yesterday on the Golden National Specialty Thread and was going to continue with the other stakes but then I saw this one. The numbers I have for the Am are 1,2,3,4,6,8,10,11,12,13,14,16,19,20,21,22,23,25,29 ,31,34,35,37,38,40,41,43,44,45,47,48,49. The scratches are 5,27,32,33, and 50.

    I had to cut that post short because I got a phone call and wanted to post it. There were many handles although the test seemed to get slightly easier as the day went on and there was more scent and a slightly different wind. The judges did call some of the quick, clean handles back.

    The Amateur Land Blind will start tomorrow at 8:00 in a different location. Handlers are to report to the headquarters area before 8:00 for directions to the test site. The starting dog will be #29.

    The Qual ran two series today. The first series was a wide open triple on relatively featureless land with heavy cover. All of the dogs were called back to the second series land blind which was a cross wind blind which included a decoy. I'm waiting for a call with the callbacks, but if anyone else has them, please post. Thanks.
