    Default Spokane RC

    I was marshalling the Open all day so had no chance to post anything. The first series was a triple with two retired - relatively short with long mark on the right thrown from a mound on a hill left to right onto the side of a slope just below a ridgeline. The short middle bird was on the flat below thrown left to right from one row of cover to just behind a large piece of thick bushy cover. The flyer on the left was last shot left to right into heavy cover - tall grass and tules. Some dogs had problems finding the flyer, some over ran the short retired, still others had big hunts on the long retired. 43 dogs were called back to the land blind which ran across all the lines to the marks and by the flyer crates. The wind was blowing left to right across the line and most dogs wanted to head right due to the terrain and the scent from the flyer crates. There were a lot of casts into the wind for many dogs although some lined the blind or nearly so. Those called back to the 3rd series tomorrow morning (34 dogs) are:

    1,4,5,6,10,11,13,14,16,18,19,20,26,28,30,31,32,34, 37,38,41,42,43,45,48,50,51,52,54,55,56,57,58,60

    The Amateur land blind proved challenging. There was a hidden dry pop to the left. The blind went down a slope into heavy cover. The dogs could disappear in the cover and reappear somewhere else. The dogs were very attracted to the area of the hidden dry pop. The blind was downwind, so the dogs seemed to be able to hear the whistles, but the sun was getting low behind the handlers and the dogs were running on a lower level, so visibility was sometimes an issue. The blind required quick reflexes and sometimes acrobatic handling to get the dogs to respond to casts.

    Callbacks to the 3rd series (22 dogs):

    2,5,8,9,11,17,18,20,24,26,27,28,29,30,34,36,39,40, 46,47,48,50

    All dogs in the Derby were called back to the second series.

    The Amateur land blind had a poison bird thrown close to the shore and a tight shoreline swim past it, then onto a point and then off out to sea to the far shore. Callbacks to the 4th series (10 dogs):

    2,11,17,18,26,28,30,39,47,48
