    I would like to thank all of the members of the Wolverine Club for all of their hard work this weekend. The grounds were immaculate and I sincerely enjoyed getting to meet all of the wonderful people at the event. I would also like to thank the land owners who graciously allowed us the use of those wonderful grounds.

    Since the AA stakes are both represented by a judge, I'll speak for half of the minor stake judges.

    The grounds were superb. The landowners graciously stepped up and helped make this weekend a go on fairly short notice due to drought impact on the water conditions at the original trial location. The club organizers and workers were amazing. What a crop of derby dogs we got to see - and the qual setups were quite challenging, with some fun work to watch.

    Shawn Stahl is a friend that I've known for many years. But this was our first time to get together and spend time goofing around with our retriever game addiciton. Shawn's quite knowledgeable as a dog guy and was a great co-judge to spend the weekend with.

    Like always, I learned many new things (some of which I'm confident I learned before, but forgot... Does anyone else ever feel that way?) I made several new friendships - which is one of the main reasons I love travelling a bit away from home to compete in, work, or judge trials.

    I found out who Tim Doane is and I am guessing he'll see some success in this year's Master National. I allegedly met Dan Wegner, although it was too cold out to verify proof via tattoo ID.

    Thanks to the Wolverine members, workers, and grounds landowners.

    Good point. You worked pretty hard this weekend helping keep the stakes going. Thanks very much to you and Tim both for doing this. If we did not have active competitors entered in the event also helping us work the test, we'd have been toast. You guys stepping up to help really made a big difference.

    Good luck at the AKC Master National! I told one of my buddies from Colordao to keep an eye out for you.
