    my only criticism of the blog are all the captionless pictures of various contestants,well wishers,workers...Seeing a picture of people whom I do not know is pointless..it might be the only time we are able to put a face with a fellow field trialer from the other side of the country

    True but I do like the picture component, and seeing the dogs and handlers which do have their names attached. It sorta gives you an idea of the environment at the trial. Looks like it is colds there. It is a lovely setting and nice grounds. IMO

    Early on there was a picture of someone who looked like Jean Wu holding a pad of paper and range finder etc. Jean has done the sketches in the past and is very, very good. Perhaps she can be enticed to share some of her wonderful work if she is indeed doing the sketches?? If not, perhaps someone can do a quick sketch - Tina has in the past- take a photo of the sketch and post the sketch - that's the way we did it in the 'olden days'. Hate not being there so do appreciate the photos and reports regardless of the content.

    Only 4 left here! Mary Lynn, those grounds are my "alma mater" for retriever training! All of my first events and big training days were done there. I do miss it! Nothing like the early morning fog as the sun rises across the rolling hills there.

    Test is in this pond. from description and mat facing SW and guns on long point I can only guess what they set up?

    .
    I've run a number of water series in that pond and it messes good dogs up.
    Remember one year running a 4th from southern left end all the way to top mother of a stick pond, Clint's dog Girlie was only dog to make the big swim to the punch bird.
    It's a neat piece of water.
