I believe this qualifies Andi for the Open and Amat Nationals, both - since amateur handlers were doing the honors for both wins.....

On a more serious note: If we stopped voting do you think they would just go away???
Bill, that set of marks had a lot in it, for sure. It was shot left long bird left to right first. It was a huge throw that literally went all the way across a draw and into sage on a hill. Second was the short momma bird on the right thrown right to left. Third was the flyer way out there in the center and landing in sage with wide open spaces all around it. Room to run. The poppa was thrown left to right and that gunner retired to sit with the momma gunner after the dog picked up his bird. The sage brush and terrain also played a big part in making it difficult. Very meaty although the wind came up part way through and helped give the long retired away. But the first 20 dogs or so had it tough.
Congrats to Mary, Marty, and Cody for making the Derby list with the third. Also cudos to Heather/Pfill and Brian/Riggs the other Pete pups that finished.
