    I have been delighted to meet and run derbies with Jim. He is a first class nice guy with a heck of a nice dog. He will be a great addition to our Memphis Club and we all need to work to gain his membership. He has been encouraged by Lanse and we need to each do the same. Watch out though. This man will hook you on his Georgia Pecan Coffee!!!

    Congrats Lance, Jim ,Gwen and Trey . Jim came out to my place for the 1st time last Wed and he is going to be a great person for our club. I was happy to see him so proud of that ribbon . Andy , Lanier and Terry are guiding him in the right direction. If I were you Jim I would take Lance up on that judging opportunity you will learn a some great things.

    Thanks for giving up your weekend Bill. Andy was very complimentary of your tests, the bird placement, placement of the dry pop on the water blind, etc.

    Am Results - Unofficial 2nd hand via text message:

    1st - Bob Hanssen - Bravo
    2nd - Todd Schaeffer - Blue
    3rd - Erik Gawthorpe - Baker
    4th - Dennis Bath - Pete
    RJ - Claudette Klein - Coal

    I hope these are all correct - some of the results were handler names only and not dog names...some handlers had more than one dog.

    Edit Monday 4/28: Erik Gawthorpe's Baker updated to replace wrong dog name

    Thanks to the FT committee, the judges, the workers and everyone else who made the trial happen.

    I had a great time and made a bunch of new friends. (and renewed relationships with some existing friends)

    I could write several articles on all the cool stories about the folks who ran at River King this weekend...and the folks who judged it, put it on, etc.

    We sometimes don't all appreciate what a cool group of folks we hang out with.

    Life is good. Field trials are fun. More of us on this resource need to realize that and enjoy....

    Thanks Susan. Ruckus ran a great trial... He sure is a neat dog with a lot of heart.

    Correction and Appreciation to River King Club

    In the Amateur Baker was the dog that earned a 3rd Place. He could have done better if it were not for his handler who thought he knew better and mis-aligned him.

    River King Club:- I had not visited this club in probably 6 years. Their membership did a great job and the weekend ran very smoothly. There are many "unseen" contributors that help put on events every weekend and I wanted to say thanks to Marty and Barb Kirby. Marty single handidly (sp?) worked the amateur and I did not enter a dog. You all already know about Dennis, but his many friends and training buddies helped a bunch.

    Thank you for putting on an event where you may not benefit, but others around you do.

    KARMA - The return on your entries will increase the sooner you decide to contribute one of your weekends to be in the judge's chair and judge others who have done the same for you.
