    Just looked it up...the 87 National Am started with a 200 yard shot flyer. Handler pulled dog off flyer to pick up a 175 yard blind and flyer station retired as the dog returned with the blind. Not a double...

    Survival is primary importance in this test, with 2 poison birds, and going back to the flier is secondary. Marking????

    I spent part of the day watching...definitely a challenging test. While it was hard to see much from the gallery, reading the handlers at the line told the story fairly well. The long retired was tough, and the dogs that did it received well-deserved applause.

    Fun to get to meet so many RTFers, too...my little Ginny got the hair petted right off of her. She sat in "her" chair while I stood and watched, and was a little angel. Dr. Ed only made a half-hearted attempt to steal her...too many witnesses.

    in the blog from today, if you look at the pix of FC-AFC Sureshot’s Texas Hold’em (Dealer), LM, Marv Baumer......look in the background at who I assume is Al Wilson (one of the judges)...if it is....is he using a cheesehead cowboy hat to signal the guns? If he is.....that's really getting into the local culture!! Instant Classic!

    Generally you are allowed one "boo-boo" providing it's not huge. Now if you get to the 10th series, need to handle and already have a previous handle, you'll most likely be a finisher.
