Received this note from NRSFTC club member Tim Keohane... sounds like Tim and his red dogs had a good time in spite of the weather, and brought home some placements too! Nice job, guys!
"Hi all,What fun we had in California with Rheo and our two pups Rhyder and Rhainy. Rheo and Tim won the Amateur Gun Dog stake then Tim and Rhyder won the puppy stake. Rhainy and Tim placed 3rd in puppy stake. Great grounds at Oneill Forebay Wildlife Reserve; a well-run trial, great food and friendly folks. We left Rheo with trainer RJ Marquart for the week and took the pups along with us to visit our son in LA. quite a change for the pups, being "urban dogs" but they adjusted well and we ran in the Gorden Setter trial the next weekend. Tim and Rheo had a miscue and Rheo took off after a bird. Rhyder won the puppy stake again and Rhainy was 4th. Again a good time, and a well-run event under very trying circumstances. It rained and the wind was blowing; we finished our runs just before the real storm set in and headed for home."
