Quick note from McAdam, New Brunswick. Maritime Open Grouse Classic — winner Magic Mist Bandit — Joe Dahl — Runner-up Peacedale Duke — Richie Frisella. Both dogs ran in the first brace Bandit had a woodcock and Duke had a grouse. They backed each other on the finds. As the day progressed it got warmer and birds were hard to come by. Wild Apple Jack ran in the last brace and went birdless although he stood at the end of the hour and a bird came out that neither I nor the judge saw or heard. As of noon time they had four braces of the 30 minute shooting dog done with one dog — Bear River Shea with Bob Little having a bird in the first brace. There’s two more braces to go and then the derby will follow. It’s not as warm today and it’s starting to cloud up — should help the derbies.
