    Just a little insight to the blind, which should help explain some of the numerous whistles??

    When dogs get out of first water they disappear going down backside of dam. Some are showing up way right, needing multiple whistles to get in the water. Word is there's a small piece of water at bottom of backside of dam, which probably is pushing them right if they choose to avoid, or square it.

    Would that be blind luck?
    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    A blind where a dog can be on line and be out of sight and thereby out of the handlers control, with factors built into the blind at that point designed to push the dogs off line while out of said control , is not one that should be seen even at a week end test, much less a National.

    John does have a good point.
    The Blog says that 18 got the Blind although was out of sight for awhile.

    My source said pick up and with the timeliness of the blog reporting, I'm gonna believe my source!
