Seventeen young, eager Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and their handlers and/or owners were judged in the derby stake of the Field Trial Specialty.  The judges, Frank Kearney and Kathy Yates, were experienced field trialers and set fair tests for the field.  They set all the tests at the Wood Duck Pond area of H. Cooper Black, Jr.Memorial Field Trial and Recreation Area.    

The first test was a single flyer duck shot in the middle of the field adjoining the pond at approx.. 80 yards.  The dogs stretched their legs and enjoyed running to the area of the fall.  There were many pins and some close hunts.  All the dogs were called back to the second series which was a reasonable double in the pond.  Near the middle of the pond, two spits of land run from either side of the pond with a distance of water in the middle.   One gunner was placed on each spit and the dead ducks were thrown on land at the end of each spit in a converging pattern.  The right hand bird was roughly 80 yards and the left hand bird was about 120 with a land entry of 20 yards.   The dogs produced various jobs.  Those who had mastered shore breaking swam straight out to each bird, made the retrieve and came back in the water.  The younger and/or less experienced dogs could not resist the temptation and swam to some portion of the spits on either right or left, beaching early and running around the spit to get the bird.  14 dogs were called back to the next series the following day on the other side of the Wood Duck Pond. 

The third series was another land double on the shore of the pond.  The memory bird on the left was around 150 yards and the short go bird was about 80 yards.   The distance between the go bird and line to the memory bird was somewhat close and a few dogs did have difficulty taking the line to the memory bird after picking up the go bird.  The fourth series was a long single across the pond some 175 yards with a land entry of around 40 yards.  Here again,  the experienced dogs took water to the spit,  across the spit, back in the water and all the way to the other side of the pond where the bird was thrown on the far shore.   The less accomplished dogs yielded to temptation and ran around the spit and the pond to the far shore, usually with some hunting in the area of the fall.  In the end, 10 dogs picked up all the birds in varying degrees of ability.             Submitted by Pat Puwal
