NOTES: Apparently somebody at the IL Department of Natural Resources made a HUGE mistake and issued permits for our field trial grounds three times over! In other words, we were not double-booked, we were triple-booked with two other pointing dog events. Kudos to Charlie Hines for making his property available for not only the Open but also the Derby. And Kudos to Amateur stake judges John Gassner and Kate Simonds for making the best of a bad situation. The Amateur concluded with a very difficult water test. Only two dogs were able to complete it cleanly, and understandably, those dogs came in first and second.

Kevin, Thought I would correct you on one dog. 3rd place in the open went to Piper's Top Gunner and he was handled by Mary Knapp his owner.
So way to go Mary, outstanding job!

Kevin I had to do it, Gunner is the sire of one of my young field trial dogs and I'm pretty proud of Mary on her accomplishment.
