    We have ducks for those who want them.
    We will have simultaneuos water and land set ups.
    The set ups will be 3 marks and 2 blinds.
    There will be line managers at both set ups.
    For those who want it, there will be an 870 & poppers & a bucket.
    For those who want it, there will be duck calls and blanks fired at the launcher.
    (My plan is Chris and I at one line, Janie H and Dwayne D, Starkeeper Kennels, at the other line.)
    Nancy will be free to make sure everything runs properly and watch over the grounds.
    You can run them how ever you wish to suit your experience / confidence level.
    No one will be rushed, so relax and take your time.
    There will be plenty of equipment, to set these up properly.
    Experience "judges" will do the set ups.
    If you run one session in the morning, you will switch after lunch.
    Lunch wil be bring your own or go to the restaraunt Nancy has mentioned.
    There will be some professional trainers at the event that can help you out, again, at what ever level you are at.
    If you want to learn drills and or run some Janie Hoctel (who runs a Ladies Handlers seminar) will be there and glad to help you learn them.
    Bring a notebook and paper and pen/pencil.

    It looks like roughly 30 dogs will be there.

    OK, I have thought long and hard on this.
    I also discussed it with a few people.

    I have learned in my life to live for the moment.
    I have also observed many people get caught up in/on the "Ribbon."
    I thought about making RTF ribbons for the event.

    Here are my thoughts.

    NO ribbon, come, relax, enjoy, meet new friends, LAUGH, be "in the moment" and leave in a good way!
    Bring you inner child (OK, for me it's not so "inner") and your puppy and play on Pal's lawn!!!

    To me, this will be a "remembered event."

    So how about all the photographers putting photos from the weekend together and emailing them to all particpants. Have a sign up list with email addresses. Just a thought....... People can share photos as they see fit.......

    There will be a couple of photographers there.
    Illinois Bob takes lots of pictures in this area.
    He then posts them on a site where one can go, review, enjoy and download the ones you like.

    There will be others there as well, I just don't know them.

    I am thinking there will be lots of pictures of everyone.

    http://gooddawgs.smugmug.com/

    This is the site I use. They(smugmug) charge for photo prints but it's not super expensive. That helps pay for the site. I've found that trying to email everybody pictures is hard to do with groups so we do this instead. I'm not a pro photographer but I do try to make it so that people can see and get photos if they want. The pictures are just a side hobby for fun.If you click on the link and scroll down you can see some of our local events and training days,etc. The gallery "Little Rough Chic" is my Maggie and my other dog Otter is in the "other" gallery. You can also see some of my rock carvings and nature shots.

    Stan, Is the guest list still open? I may be able to do the day trip over from Indy, but not run a dog, she will be 3+ weeks along by then. Anyone thinking of bringing trash bags and toilet paper? May need more than one bucket to go with that paper?

    It would be great for you and your PUP!!
    Bring food!

    I always have TP in the truck.
    And the Redhead makes sure other supplies are there as well Ladies.

    Plastic bags are a necessary item in any ones training bag.

    I mean, some things are obvious, sort of, maybe........kinda!
