On top of that, in the last couple of years the ladies on the blog team have done a great job and timely, . . . until the last few series. As the field is narrowed down, the real time news and info stops. Somehow, info is being stifled. For what purpose, by whom, I do not know. All I know is watching these events via internet is about as close as I will ever get to the real thing. All this protectionism does nothing to build interest in the game.
    Perhaps you're not linking in to the RTN website which is current to within a few minutes? And while we there there were a number of folks taking pics and videos and sharing via their smartphones or whatever when they could get adequate signal. However, there are cell coverage holes all over Cooper Black, Wood Duck Pond and Palmetto Field being among the poorest. So communication from those series was constrained.
    While it's too bad that coverage of the NRC does not meet your expectations not all disappointments in life are the result of some conspiracy plot.

    The cell problems you mention are exactly why alternative forms of communication have been suggested. It's about increasing access to information, not hurting anyone's feelings.

    However, there is no denying that (as John pointed out with his link) the amount of info and number of sources has dwindled in the last few years. Regardless of the reason, we seem to be headed the wrong way on the information highway...

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    If the blog's callbacks are correct, it appears as though the last dog has run although it seems they might mention that on the blog so can't be sure. And if the callbacks again, are correct, it looks like 3 dogs completed all 10 series without a handle. There are quite a few with 2 handles and one may presume that they are not in contention so now it is up to the only people who matter- the judges.

    Not having seen the dogs work, it is hard to tell. Just because someone didn't handle doesn't necessarily mean that their work was superior (though it might have been). Personally, I'd rather see a quick handle than a
    gorilla hunt.
    I'd like to add my thanks to the Blog ladies for a job well done!

    19,55,61 have not handled so one would assume one of them will win however that remains to be seen

    My implication was that the dogs with two handles might not be in contention- regardless, all dogs appeared to have finished and attained the status of finalist so kudos to all. But, there will be only one 2013 NRChampion so good luck and to all the dogs who qualified - great job this year!!
