    Any news from out west would be appreciated especially the Derby and Qual. Thanks in advance!

    The beginning is often scary, the end is usually sad, but fortunately, it's the middle that counts the most.

    I was wondering the news on the Open today. Does anyone have the Open call backs for tomorrow? Any and all news would be greatly appreciated.

    Quite likely they will not finish the Open 1st series today. Middle, about 280 first down, right, 320. 2d down, flyer, 200. Lots of big hunts, handles and pick ups.

    The Open was a triple followed by an honor with marks ranging from about 150 for the flyer, nearly 250 for the middle bird and approaching 300 for the long bird. The middle bird was down first thrown left to right from a grove of trees out into the field in a line of cover and retired toward the trees. The second bird down was the long bird on the right thrown right to left into some cover and retired behind a mound of brush. There were at least three similar mounds of brush in line in the field, causing some dogs to wonder which mound it was thrown from. The flyer go bird was on the left thrown left to right. There was a lot of terrain in the field to negtiate including sage, rows of cover, and grass with running or lunging water depending on where the dog crossed on the way to the two long retired marks. Dogs had a hard time watching the long bird because they wanted to swing to the flyer. It was hard to know which bird to pick up second because often dogs wanted the right hand mark but when sent, headed between the two marks and ended up at the short one. There was a variety of work and the wind shifted in direction and intensity causing the test to change somewhat throughout the day.

    Open Callbacks (39 dogs):

    1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 15, 16, 22, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 35, 38, 41, 42, 43, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 58, 60, 63, 65, 68, 69, 70, 73, 75, 81, 82, 83, 86, 87, 88

    The 2nd series starts tomorrow with dog 69.
