    A dog who gets 2nds in Qual (which gives ***) can also continue to compete in Qual.

    There must have been some good depth in the field of dogs for so many to complete all series. There was an entry of 36, with 5 scratches, so more than 1/2 (17) the dogs were still there at the end.

    The 4th series of the Derby was a very tight double with the long bird way up a hill thrown right to left hip pocket to the go bird flyer. Many of the dogs curled back to the flyer on the way to the long mark. Five made it through.

    Derby Placements:

    1st - Presto - Tandoc
    2nd - Jenny - Bly
    3rd - Gibbs - Millette-Snodgrass
    4th - Dart - Myers
    RJ - Rusty - Chalupka

    The Am is a tight quad with three retired around a small pond of water. The long birds are thrown momma poppa with the right hand gunners retiring into the same holding blind as the left gunner. There is a short retired thrown from the right back corner of the pond left to right away from the pond and behind a dike-like mound. Those gunner walk in the direction they threw behind the dike. The flyer gunners shoot a wipeout flyer from the right side of the pond into the middle of the pond and about in line with the long right mark. The line to the short retired goes over the bird crates sitting in front of the flyers. The first bird down is the left long bird, then the short retired, then the right long bird, then the flyer. Many dogs are flaring the flyer gunners going for that mark. Most of the dogs seem to be doing the test but some with lots of hunting.
