Hugest congratulations to all who passed the Grand! What an awe inspiring achievement.
A few unofficial statistics:
This Spring's Grand had the highest number of passes ever in a Grand (113) and one of the highest percentages of passes (31% passed). Clearly lots of dogs who were very well trained, very well prepared, and very well handled. Major kudos to each!

Here are some statistics from past Grand Hunts for numbers dweebs like me:

1990 spring 3/33 passed 9%
1990 fall 3/78 passed 4%

1991 spring 6/40 passed 15%
1991 fall 5/71 passed 7%

2010 spring 67/371 passed 18%
2010 fall 56/392 passed 14%

2011 spring 57/390 passed 15%
2011 fall 53/247 passed 21%

2012 spring 113/368 passed 31% GREAT JOB GUYS!!!!

Now for the fun stuff...

overall pass rate from 1990-2012 19.8%
overall pass rate last 10 years 21.6%
overall pass rate last 5 years 21%

So the pass rate is pretty consistent around 20%. What a great bunch of dogs and handlers this year.

Thanks for the stats. I was in Wisconsin this week but am sad to say I had to leave 1 day sooner than I wanted. Went out in the 4th series on the last 20 yards of the land blind. From what I saw they were great test , judged fair and I had a blast !

I was fortunate enough to pass my dog in the last fall Canada grand, and this one in Wisconsin. I've said it takes a good dog to get through the Grand, but also ALOT of luck. I didn't get to run Saturday due to darkness. Came back Sunday, and handled on a short mark that the wind was giving up the day before. Carrying ones into the last series weighs on ones mind, and nerves. Hang in there, and good luck to those who competed, but weren't able to quite finish, your time will come!
