    The Q wasn't finished when I left the grounds, so unfortunately I do not have those results.

    Open--unofficial callbacks after the land triple. 39 dogs are back to the landblind. 8 a.m. start. #47 starts. Rotation is 64-47-13-30. Scratches are 18 26 45 63.

    CALLBACKS: 1 2 3 6 8 12 13 16 17 20 21 23 25 27 30 31 32 33 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 44 46 47 48 50 51 56 58 61 62 65 67 68.

    Long retired was at noon position, 509 yards per range finder, thrown to the right along a wooded area and hip pocket to the middle retired. Early on, the sun was behind the long retired gun station and dogs had difficulty seeing the gun and there was no wind. Middle retired was a 1:00 position, 175 yards per range finder, thrown to the right with the biggest throw I have ever seen. Andy Curtis must have thrown that bird 40 feet and it had great hang time! The flyer was at 3:00 position, 175 yards shot angle back left. The dogs did better once the sun was higher and the wind picked up, IMO.
