    Default 5th series quad - marshal's diagram posted by rftn

    RE 5TH -
    TIME PER DOG - NO, NOT 8-10 MINUJTES; UNLESS THE TEST/DIAGRAM IS
    "TWEAKED" SUBSTANTIALLY, TIME WILL APPROACH 10-12 MINUTES ...

    THE ISOSCELES LINES OF 375 & 385 YARDS IN THE DIAGRAM TO A DOG LOOKS
    LIKE CONCENTRIC FALLS ...OSTENSIBLY LANDING IN THE SAME PLACE,
    VERTICALLY SEPARATED BY APPROX. 10-15 YARDS ... "THAT IN MY
    OPINION IS UNREASONABLE & DIFFICULT TO SCORE FAIRLY".

    This is what I've been told so far: first dog handled, second dog double handled, 3rd dog switched and 4th dog did it (Diesel and Pleasant) It took them just a little over 10 minutes to complete the test. Also this is 3rd hand info, so I will not update the summary list until I can confirm with a source actually there.

    Also note the test got started a little late, too. Plus it is the workers party tonight, so split test for sure.

    I've also been told the test is NOT as tight as the diagram shows, keep in mind these are Marshall sheets that are created during setup week and the judges can/do tweak the setups - this is the catch 22 of showing "us" the diagram - it's just info for us at home to have an idea of what the setup is gonna be, if we complain too much, the powers that be will say don't show us the setup/drawing/diagram...take it with a grain of salt!

    The flyer has been moved in according to some one actually there.

    The blog can NOT compete with txt messaging...it is started, but only shows the Marshall's diagram of the test. No info on the dogs yet. It runs any where from 20-90 minutes behind....

    On a test like this how much do no birds help/hurt a dog?
