Today the Open is using the Unbehaun Field Trial Grounds. Derby is on the Fox Hollow Kennel Ground (Curtis). The Amateur will be at John & Laura Parrot's Grounds at the main house. The Qualifying will be at Spangler's Training Grounds. Next year 2013 the National Amateur will be on these grounds. The slate of judges will be announced next week at the National--they have very experienced, well-known judges. The Blackhawk Trial next year will exchange with the MFTA trial. So there will be no trial on the grounds the week prior to the National. The MFTA grounds are about a 4-hour drive from these grounds. The Blackhawk trial then next year will be in the middle of May.

Open Land Blind

They throw a poison bird down the hill to a orange ribbon. You run the right hand blind (which is not pictured). Then you run the blind five feet left of the poison bird, right of the green tree, and deep. The throw on this bird will be critical. If you get a long throw, you are in big trouble. Oh yeah, you have to run by the water, too.

Copngratulations to Bill Landau, Randy & Mary Spangler & Wayne & Terri Curtis for Randy's Open win with Moses!!
2nd Ali/Smith
3rd Jet/Powers
4th sorry, cannot remember

Amateur callbacks to waterblind, 18 dogs:
5 11 12 19 22 26 27 29 33 34 35 38 45 51 52 54 55 56. Dog #11 starts.

We had 57 entries; 7 scratches, 50 starters.

First series was a triple with 2 retireds and a walkout flyer. We ran at John and Laura Parrot's in the hill country! Triple was shot short retired at 300 yards, long retired at 400 yards, flyer guns stood up from behind a blind and walked out at 150 yards shot up hill. Both retireds were through the swimby pond--if the dog wanted to.;)

Landblind was run from the hillside. As the dog hit the mat, a gunner dry popped to our left out in the field. We ran through the flyer station, through the dragback from the marks, angled into the swimby pond, across the field, through the short retired station, a small ditch and to the blnd.

We start at 8 a.m. at Parrott's for the waterblind and watermarks.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris Atkinson and Jim Harvey--great guys!!
