    I tried to post a description of the tests all day but RTF kept saying the token had expired. I'll have to type it all over again.

    The Open started with a triple with two retired. The first bird down was the long retired in the middle thrown right to left along a ridge with a tree line in the background making the bird hard to see except at the top of the arc. The gunner was also very hard for the dogs to pick out. The second bird down was on the left thrown right to left from the right sight of a tree, behind the tree, into a pond with a splash. The long mark was hip pocket to the shorter retired. The flyer was off to the right and shot left to right. The line to the bird was through some wooden structures that looked like they could have been the frames for some sort of hunting blinds. Many dogs had hunts on the two retired birds.

    The Amateur was a triple with one retired. The first bird down was the short bird on the left was thrown left to right hip pocket to the longer bird and the gunner sat in a neutral position facing the line. The next bird down was the long retired in the middle also thrown left to right. The Flyer was off on the right shot right to left. There was a lot of terrain to negotiate in the field with mounds or moguls, swales, and hills. Some dogs were bothered by the tightness of the lines between the two marks and banana'd around the shorter mark to reach the long one. Others overran the short mark and got the long one first and then backsided the short gunner and hunted there.

    Callbacks to the land blind which, as Lynn said, is partially completed were:

    2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,13,14,15,16,17,18,21,22,26,29,30,3 2,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,43,44,45,47,48,49,50, 51

    There may be one other because they said there were 38 and I only have 37 numbers.
