I have it on reliable info that the first series will be a wide open triple with two retired guns

Good luck to all the entries, hope the judges and the FT committee get good weather and very few no birds


Edit : for those not aware the FT was moved to the Ronan area(instead of Missoula) and will take place on familiar grounds like the Fangsrud property...

of the 51 dogs that started the second series in the Open (land blind) eleven dogs picked up, the best job was a two whistle job, no dogs lined the blind

35 dogs to the water blind, setting up for it now...from the description it sounds like the judges are letting the dogs play and are letting them eliminate themselves...the water blind is hard to describe without a visual for not having visited the property in a while..but it sounds like a difficult angled entry type of test with the line well off the water's edge...the judges were excited about this test as far back as Thursday when they decided on it..

Lots of good work being shown by the dogs-handlers,dont expect them to push it and start a fourth series this afternoon...

sorry no numbers again, not in touch with the marshal who has that info;)

the third series water blind included a poison bird thrown on land away from the test(about 60yds) along with a dry shot...the dogs were then asked to cross three separate pieces of water to find the bird..there were quite a few dogs that refused to get into the water after the 30 yard land entry, the judges got some answers,no dog lined the blind, lots of choppy work....8 dogs picked up, 18 dogs to the fourth series

sorry no accurate numbers to report at this time....will post them if I receive them later after work

the fourth series should put an appropriate ending to a trial held on national caliber grounds...;)

A.Woodyard/Rosie. THIS IS THIRD HAND SO ACCURANCY IS QUESTIONABLE.

the weather report is that it is cold (temps in the low 40's) at daybreak and a light rain falling...the judges are discussing whether the weather will affect the planned test since the forecast calls for rain most of the day and temps to not exceed the high 50's ...as soon as I get confirmation on what they are doing for the 4th series in the Open, I will post it
