    We had 17 dogs back to the 3rd series of the derby. Threw a big triple and 13 out of 17 dogs brought all 3 chickens home. We had 7 tough marks nothing was easy!!! I feel like I've been on a whirlwind trip with 67 open dogs and 34 derby dogs this weekend!
    Great weather, great cojudge, and gooddogs to watch!
    I get home at 1030 on Monday morning! !!!

    Chad looks like they threw your Derby triple in the AM! 21 of 60 finishing a major. I'm sure 15 of em' thought they won. No reply necessary. Glad you had a good time.

    So it is a bad thing to not slaughter the dogs up front? A bunch of people got to play for more than one series and had a good time rather than going home 15 minutes after they got there Saturday. And also maybe there were some pretty good dogs there that hung in rather than mediocre dogs running a "derby triple" as was suggested. Wish more judges were like the ones that judged the PRTA Amateur.

    Wetdog did I meet you? Nice test with the judges letting the dog /handler take themselves out. Didn't need to pencil whip. The first series was a land triple with the memory bird up the middle at about 430 yds thrown left to right against a tree lineand then retired, just off line a log at about 200 yards that short stopped a lot of dogs and at about 300 yds a clump of berry bushes that a number dogs thought must be the holding blind, they need to punch past that another 130 yds, # 2 was to the left at about 200 yds thrown left to right and retired, flyer 3 # 3 was more angle back left to right at about 195 yds.Very tough scenting conditions because of wild mint.Lost 1/2 the field in the first series.
