    My question , why, another series maybe, or ? I once ran a five series amateur all- age. Last series was a water blind, orange ribbon where dog was suppose to get out. Just came from open, not explained to me, ran the water blind, dog carried beautiful line, got out about 5 feet early and got blind. Gave out three placements, did not give a fourth. If your on the business end of having placements tossed, kinda bad taste in mouth, especially in a all-age stake. One judge Applogized ,said his co-judge talked him into it, both eight point plus judges, hmm didn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy. There were more but that's an example, unless a dog doesn't get any of the chickens, what's the point, principal of it!? Or ? A QAA is hard enough in this age and a all-age placement or placements won't even respond.

    I'm with you Earl, I would place a double handle rather than not award all 4 places, it is the dog's performance relative to the field not to some imaginary standard.
