    The open had a triple with two very tight right hand birds, one was the flyer. The results changed with the light. A little cloud cover at the time you ran made the birds more visible. The lines to the mark was through some heavy brushy cover with a littel water in front of it. If the dog took the wrong path, it would push them into a place they didn't want to be. Very well placed birds with good use of cover and terrain. Difficult test that was causing some handles. It was about 50% last night of dogs doing it by varying degrees. I doubt if they finished.

    I didn't go over an see the amatuer test.

    We had great weather all three days, and some really nice tests. Special credit has to go to the Am judges who were saddled with having to use the water we usually give to the Q or the Derby.

    I must say I have been impressed with the Goldens I have been seeing the last two weeks. Lots of drive, lots of style, lots of go. They are already tractable and intelligent. Very impressive.

    What's the full name of "Voight"? An obvious assumption is he's an assistant at Handjem but is it a relative of Dennis? Please tell me it isn't him. HPW

    Correctly spelled Voigt, Ray. No relation to Dennis. Definitely a fine assistant at Handjem and has been around the grounds since a young boy.
