first trial back after months of rehab, creek robber is back. he won the amateur today at the san jose trial.
nfc chopper took 2nd.
as for the open, carbon and auggie (creek robber for those who dont know him as auggie) are in the last series tomorrow.
i guess its the start of another frank and ole year!
I've never seen so many "no birds" in a trial--the flyer guns had a terrible time with that wind!
When I was in holding blind--the first time--one of the judges said, "We're killin' them, they're dropping like flies." He was neither grinning nor happy while he was saying it either. It was a beautiful test, tho.
10 were back to the last series, but it was long uphill, tight and difficult, handles.
In the Open 11 back, Carbon RJ and only two JAMS, Auggie was the only dog to go out to the long bird on line, really the only dog to do it correctly. four dogs picked up.
ok, now lets get it right...chopper went out on land blind and got 2nd in am....per ole jackson who won the am and open...auggie won a double header and yes....HE's BAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!
now, for those of you that saw chopper at the national and were in aw of him, rightfully so because he is great. dont you think maybe auggie should get the credit due him also, he is GREAT.
no, the trials are not easier here, the great ones from here are just that.
Sorry, results given to us were wrong last night and corrected today. From Don Shaw FT Chairman, Auggie does win double header. Chopper did an incredible job in the Am!
(My apologies, tired, after working for four days to help put the trial on)
