    Default Piney Woods

    PWRC-open1st.jpgThe open is a triple with the line set up on a hill and all three gun stations set in the flat below. Order in long middle, short left, then long right flyer. Both left and middle guns retire: middle guns retire by moving to flyer station when dog has picked up flyer and is returning; left gun retires (as I recall, specific instructions may be different) after dog passes en route to flyer...some (either dog or handler) have primary selected on the short left gun. There is a strong crosswind from left to right. Handler shown in the picture is the honor position...the running dog is positioned to their left. Saw dogs go both left and right of the cedar tree in the middle on their way to the long retired but the ones I watched swam around the point and down to the end of the pond, driving left (bad) or right (good-downwind) of the bird. Obviously, there is a lot of varied work on the test.

    So ... they're moving 75+ yards to retire? When do they retire if the dog primary selects? Good luck to the contestants!

    PWRC Open 2nd & 3rd series????

    PB left of first LB then you run another LB tight behind PB. Then you run WP right of PB across water over point reenter water then tight behind flyer crates from 1st series.

    If the instructions were to retire when the dog has picked up the flyer... Primary selecting the short one might be a good strategy...if your dog will do it. Should be an up gun in that case. Right?

    Wish I was there yesterday to see how the moving pieces were interacting. There is no room for sashaying around if you're @ the deep middle station. Interesting setup.
