Sorry for a lack of specifics but only one dog dropped from the first series. I had to head out midway through the second series.

Qualifying started with a triple with 1st bird retired and out of order flier in the rain and east wind at their backs. Temps in the 30s. Many pick ups and handles. Dogs had great difficulty finding the flier under the conditions and drove on through and up the ridge (esker) and an around. Invitation blind behind the retired hay bale. Water blind and marks on Sunday off the trial grounds at another property. No calls backs. Sorry. I left for home and warmth.

I can second Cine's post as I shot for the Q all day. Forty degrees and windy.
Dogs that marked the flyer did well. Dogs that went to where the flyer was "supposed" to be got into all kinds of trouble.
Approx. six of the 28 dogs did the test without a handle.

14 back for the qual, a generous callback. I headed for home too and a fireplace and just heard the number. If it hit 40 it felt like 25 with the wind all day.

Congratulations Ken Challand and Beadle's Turbo Nina on your OPEN WIN! Also a big congrats to John Ketzner from Windwalker Gun Dogs for doing Nina's young dog training. John took Nina as a 7 week old puppy, he loved her, trained her and all around let her be his little dog. When Nina turned of age, John handed her over to Wayne Curtis. Wayne won a qualifying with Nina 3 weeks later and now they can check off the elusive open win. Good job Wayne.

It's pretty neat that Kuna has produced as well as she has and she is currently bred to the brother of the potential 2012 high point amateur dog.

Good going guys and Nina!

Mike

Email from Susan Exo to Kathy Swab of Crosswinds Kennel that bred FC/AFC Sophie.

Huge congrats to Warren on a great team for sure!

Warren and Susan are both wonderful people! I wish this sport had more just like the both of them!
