:D As a Southern boy by birth going as far North as New Yawk on a scouting mission and check out Polock's NFRA trial is a possibility. The concept of NFRA intrigues me and if possible I may try to make a 9 hour each way excursion to see first hand what it is all about. :lol: may even run some "hillbilly" dawgs too. Big problem as of now is my work load and may have to enter on site... just a few random thoughts........... :D

9 hours each way from Kentucky? I think it's that far for me from VT.
(I still say go though-it's one more game to play & the dogs don't care what the game's called as long as they're getting birds)

Otey I think big dog has a good idea. All - Age and Quals May be down the road. At least you can get a look at what NFRA is about.

Otey:

If you run the open, expect to see setups that are similar to an AA stake in difficulty. I think it is a great chance for those wanting to run FT's to get some experience under their belts. The master setups can be really challenging as well. The master water setup (monster Quad) that Joseph and Justin came up with in Stillwater a couple of weeks ago was pure evil :D .

Nine hour drive-heck that is a trip to the grocery store out here in West Texas.

I say go--you'll enjoy it.

Exactly that .... no advanced entry required, as long as the stake is not determined "full." HRC allows it, however, I'm not sure NFRA plays that game. Better check with our NFRA guys first.

I have been talking to Polock

:D The "on site" entry is already "OKed" by Mr NFRA. We have been communicating back and forth by PM. Big Dog, Terry and Dale MR BILLY is ready for anything that is thrown at him. Ran a very DIFFICULT quad with line to 2 marks a long run to water, 50 yards of water, and about another 125 yards to AOF. Another mark was a checkdown at about 110 yards and the memory mark was up center of pond 110 yards and then another 245 to AOF used the Retired gun feature on BB. SMACKED the marks. Then added a 385 yard blind down across a hillside and thru a valley and up a hillside on 2 whistles. cover was about 2 feet high in strips across line to blind...........and my PROBLEM CHILD Maxx did as well as Billy did too. :D :D Just got back in from training .....started at 9 this morning and ran 4 different setups on 4 different areas. The Boys were ready to load on trailer when we got thru.

Miriam, I can check out the person against the pic ........... :D gotta see if the dog is that good looking.......LOL
:wink: :wink:

John, I invited ya to run my NFRA event. Though the entry deadline is Monday June 21, I have the option to take entries the morning of the stake. I prefer not do it this way so that I have ample birds and ammo. As you know, it tough enough getting a trial together.
If your thinkin' about comin' at least give me an idea on number of dawgs and stake entered.

Sorry to here of your loss. I know just what you are going through. It was even harder to tell my 11yr old son. IT was his lab.

Geez John, I'm sorry. Nobody needs that to happen. They worm their way into our emotions and then suddenly they're gone. It seems so unfair.
