Steve----Steve Amrein said:I am not sure if it sad or ridiculous that someone that has had such a positive impact on the sport as Mitch and Linda even have to respond to Marvins site.
I am looking forward to seeing all the folks at the trial. I will try my very best to do a good job. At the very least I will bring a compass so I know the direction the sun sets. It should be fun.
Prior to sounding off why don't you find out what happened?
Mitch Patterson contacted me by e-mail stating his record was not right. I responded by e-mail that whoever filled out their entry forms was not identifying the handler.
The handler could have been Mitch, Linda, a DH &/or a Pro. but I was willing to accept his word on who the handler was if he sent me a letter by USPO signed by both he & LInda which included Trial, stake, date & handler. I know the dog did something, I just have no way of providing handler credit. There was no response. Mitch has stated on this post that there will not be a response, he also says that I am wrong. Steve, you took Mitch's side, now you can explain to me where that is my fault?
Everyone is just a judge ID & a name on ftretrieverjudge.net. Individiuals fill out their own entries to trials, AKC APPROVES the judges & ftretrieverjudge.net posts their record in competition on the APPROVED page of the website. Again, AKC APPROVES the judges & ftretrieverjudge.net posts that individuals competitive record. IT'S THAT SIMPLE!!!!!
You've tried to make an issue of giving back to the sport by judging on previous posts. You're going to be judging the Open ALL-AGE stake this coming weekend @ Midwest RC. I wish you all the success in the world!! Given that you & your Co-Judge have similar competitive records in the All-Age stakes who will you turn to if you have a difficult situation arise? That's quite a responsibility!!
It's just the 2 of U & the Rule book!!!
