Killer test for sure.
    It was an excellent test. Tough, but fair. They have not backed off at all.

    That one will be seen again in a weekend trial I’m sure. It was a bear.

They had missed their note on the marker falling over and called Lauren the next morning to get his tail to the trial. Needless to say, he was relieved. The callbacks to the 8th, I think they overlooked Connie’s dog number. They are also reviewing their notes against the blog callbacks and caught it then. They also joked around with me about the blog posting I picked up on a pretty nice blind in the 5th. These ladies doing the blog are doing great and working hard in a very very long day. It’s hard to be 100% accurate, but it keeps the people that can’t be here in the loop. Thanks to them.
    Thanks for the clarification. It's hard to get all the parts from a blog. Congrats on your deep run.

    I’m staying with Alex, and we have had a blast. I know he was disappointed yesterday but had his normal happy demeanor. Just remember during callbacks, not all hunts and handles are equal. He was real nice up to here.

    From reading the blog, Tubbs and Clooney as well as others seem to be having a really nice performance. Just from the blog information it seems like most all of the dogs that are making it through the 8th are in definitely in contention. Sounds like the 8th was one hell of a test and there should be lots of separation within the field. Good luck to all

    Don't call it a WB then. Run a WB when time permits Pretty simple

    Do not attach too much significance to the Blog beyond very basic things like handle, pickup, broke, did not get water off the point, etc.

    They have the latitude to label any test whatever they choose. I commend them for doing a real water blind.

    The first water blind was nice too. Trust me, I ran it. Their second blind called a land blind had plenty of water in it to make up for your lack of water in the 2nd. I’m watching the 9th now wishing
    i was still in. They have done an excellent job in every series.
