    Why does it show Slider having a handle on the call back page for the 5th if he had a no bird?

    Yes... He had a no bird the first time.... Handle when he ran the second time. Good on three birds... Handle on one.

    LF: nice mark

    RR: drove up hill on R of guns and retrieved the RF. over the hill to the bird

    RR: traveled toward the area and was headed back to RF and was handled to the bird

    LR: good mark.

    I'm enjoying all the coverage and have a question.

    Would someone explain how judges deal with a series that is downwind for half the retrievers and then switches to having the rest running into the wind?

    Just the breaks at a national... The wind out there has been switching almost hourly. But it happens. You try to set up for the prevailing wind...

    I guess what I'm saying is that it's a good break for the dog that benefits and a bad break for the dog that doesn't... But that's life at a National.

    You may have a test with a one hundred dogs in it and there will be a period where say five to six dogs here and there that dont get the same test as the other dogs. The wind, lack of wind or breeze, lighting, or some other freak factor just may knock out five or six in a row and then the conditions come back to "normal." Some damn fine dogs have been eliminated through the years for such freak events.

    Look at the callbacks and 78-83 have probably had good timing. However, there are also some pretty good sluggers in this group as well. The 81-85 group would have been a good bid.
