I got the stupid award from the Amateur judges at the Jacksonville trial. I got called back from the first series to run the land blind, a 440 yard blind. I was second to run the blind. The judges called me to the line and when I came out of the holding blind, I got half way to the mat when I noticed that the blind planter was still standing where the blind was planted and told the judges. Judges remarks: boy, are you dumb you should have run your dog. Second dumb mistake, was we had to walk down a dike and to be respectful to the handler in front of me, I had a black short sleeve shirt over my white shirt. Stupid me did not notice I had not taken off the black shirt until after I ran the blind.My third stupid mistake was I had the dog to within 10 to 15 yards short of the blind when I stopped him and gave him a come in whistle cast and lost track of where the blind was planted and lost the dog at the end of the blind. When I stopped him, I thought he was long of the blind and a little left of it.
