    Default North AL

    Heading up in the am for the Q, just wondering how the derby and Open are faring?

    Open finished first series. Triple with two retired. 26 back to the second series beginning in the morning. Derby is still in process- nice set ups I'm told. Gene

    Open is beginning water blind as of about 1:30. 16 dogs back. Quick phone call but I think the land blind series was a double land blind. I'll try to get more details on other stakes when I get a call tonight. Also understand it was pretty darn cold this morning and hasn't warmed up much. Tomorrow expected to be colder.

    A few dogs were lost on the water blind this afternoon. Most were called back for the last series to begin in the morning. The water blind had a fairly long entry with an area scented heavily on the way to the bird. Also a boat off to the side with ducks in it. To much scent for my young dog. He couldn't get past his nose apparently- he won't see the water marks tomorrow and likely I won't have any further update.

    Probably won't be seeing this sort of "diversion" anymore in the very near future.

    RJ - 14: Knuckers/Trey Lawrence
    JAMS - 2(Champ/Lawrance),6(Scanner/Hughes),10(Tina/Horsley),16(Violet/Kaiser),18(Rosa/Brown),19(Ann/Hughes)

    Congrats to all on finishing a nice derby. 4th series was finished on Saturday. Kudos to Al Previte and Dave Kress on challenging the dogs. Key birds included a 2nd series memory bird cutting a piece of water shot with a rangefinder at 429 yards from the line. High winds forced scrapping of a 3rd series water double with a mempry boat mark thrown into cover, which was also going to be a nice test.
