    What a blessing today was. It was 77 when we started early this morning and 82 when we finished at 9:30. The humidity was low and there was a cool northerly breeze. We had three handlers and dogs so we got some holding blind time along with some honors. We did two land setups for senior akc or seasoned hrc. Both the (by Pirates) did very well. Set up 1: M1-115 yds (downwind), M2-100 yds (crosswind), B1-95 yds (crosswind) and B-2 was 200 yds (downwind). Setup 2 was very similiar but only one blind. Plus Rowdy got a walkup with a wc pigeon.

    I think we may have a little better weather next week with maybe some rain.

    Wayne sounds like we had similar weather, only our temperature got to 76F. It was the low humidity and breeze that made it so nice. More of the same tomorrow. I would have the whole summer this way please!!!

    When I got home this morning from training at appx 11 am it was only 78 degrees. What a great break from the normally oppressive heat in August.

    Tough to hear about your weather. Here in Oh it's been in the high 50's in the mornings.

    Yeah, they are saying that that little front is going to break up about 40 or 50 miles north of us, so no cooler air and no rain

    Same here.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Ditto ,we've had a great summer ,with only a couple of days in the mid to high 90's as the day time high temps. We had several days last week that were close to record low's at night. Could use some rain in the northern half of the state.

    My weather app says it will be 88* at 9PM. A little too late and a lot too dark to do much training.
