    Carol: you are preaching to the choir....the NRC cant prohibit you or anyone from taking pictures of anything you want at Cooper Black or any other public venue..agreed...But the event itself can be a whole different issue...I can be asked to leave the FT grounds area if I break any regs of the FT itself..just like a sporting event if I whip out my cellphone they can ask me to please refrain from using it, and if I disagree then they have the right to have me removed from the FT area

    Lets let them battle that out elsewhere....lets enjoy this 10th series and see who emerges as the new champion

    In the last two pictures on the blog NRC site it showed Danny Farmer without black gloves and Jerry Patopea with black gloves.Are the gloves not worn by all or is it b/c these are marks? What IF you had to handle? Just curious.

    Do they do this often?
    All 4 birds were shot at once with streamers flying in the air. The judges turned to the handlers and to the gallery and said "Welcome to the 10th Series!"

    Just got in and missed some things I see!

    No one goes to line in a marking test planning to handle, most wear gloves because it is cold or to keep smelly bird scent off your hands, for this I wear goatskin roping gloves which are tan. Much like two sided heeling black gloves are a matter of personal preference and are not worn universally.

    Based on the photos associated with dog #45 and the description given in the blog, I believe the 10th series is back at Goose Pond where the third series was held. I looked at the following WEB site which shows a satellite view of the pond. In the satellite view, North is approximately at 12 noon and South at 6.

    https://www.google.com/maps/preview#...!2m1!1e3&fid=7

    If this WEB site does not work for you, perhaps you can find another site that shows Goose Pond.

    I believe the long point associated with the 2nd bird down – Left Retired (LR), is the point under the “Goose Pond” label. Based on the descriptions for the four marks and the photos on the blog this would put the mat in the general area of the very small triangle formed by the roads in the middle of the view.
