    Tough to blog on a blind. Only so much you can say other than hitting the spots and counting whistles. Even if number of whistles isn't a major concern. Reading comments one dog could not be seen. I take that to mean it was off line a good bit and one other missed the slot between the trees. Doesn't seem like a lot of answers. But likely had cast refusals and not taking the cast and being stopped and re cast. With ten plus whistles probably had some of that.

    Anyone know how 82 did on land blind he was skipped on the blog?

    Blog and RTF updates are great way to keep close to up to speed on what is going on. Nice to follow friends and dogs I know.

    I would bet the judges will get more answers than the blog reveals. Again, no criticism of the blog, the info has been great. They are reporting facts, not interpreting them.

    Well said, It would probably be good enough if they gave a picture of each series and the callbacks from each series. On the weekends it's great if someone posts the placements at a trial, let alone the calbacks for each series.

    Counting whistles doesn't mean much, but if you were reporting on the blog how would you describe the work of each dog on a blind? It wouldn't be too good if your dog was running and the blog said "dog #x had pretty crappy blind."

    The blog is great and is a way for the people at home to know what is going on at the National. Job well done.

    Exactly. And as mentioned earlier, neither the "Blog" - nor anyone for that matter - has the vantage point the judges do. So they don't have access to all the facts to report in the first place.

    No one is in a position to see what the dogs are doing - every dog on every mark, every cast (or not) on a blind, in every series. For 10 series. In the National.

    I would definitly pay for live feed coverage of the National! Whatever it would cost would be minimal compared to what I spend on this lunacy.
