    gang...I never cancel on anything...but something unavoidable has come up. I gotta back out. I hope you all have a wonderful training day, I truly wish I could be there, because it looks like some awesome water.

    huntinman...I can make it a combo just for you, so you can enjoy your meal and sit at ease at the same time. Just look for the black enclosed trailer.

    ok, we are gonna need some help.
    I don't want nancy trying to handle all of this alone.
    I am trying to get food and training equipment lined up.
    I believe the eqp. Thing is done.
    Someone else is working on birds.

    We may all have to run a bird station..............if you don't know how, it's time to learn!
    Again, i want the utmost courtesy for the property we get to use!!!!!

    1 more thing, to solve a possible issue.

    If it rains, and conditions are extremely muddy, then we may have to cancel the pond useage!
    I'm sorry, but in april it can get pretty bad and we don't want to ruin the ara around the pond.
    What you may not realize though, is the sun follows me around!!!!

    But, if that happens, then we run all land, it will still be warmer thane here, and still get to run our dogs.
    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.

    any questions or suggestions?
    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."

    "that's all the people need to know!"
