      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Any members running dogs at this weekends event? Hope to be up there Sunday for a bit. Will be viewing the/a senior event. Should be there about 10ish according to her draw. Watch for the couple standing on the tailgate with binoculars. First chance we've had to see our little girl run.

Thanks guys. Luck needs to go to the hound and her handler. I'm just a spectator and most likely will not see the entire event due to graduation parties that need to be attended. A big thank you to PBC for the compliment. Running Sunday is 3rd generation of our breeding. Avatar is her mother.

Not sure what is all running on Sat. but Sun. is junior and senior. Jezebel is in senior A. Official AKC events require preregistration.

I believe it's Greg Ye. Unless Bryce changed trainers in the last couple of months...

Good Luck!

Ken, I thought Greg sold his property and moved out west, Montana or Colorado?

Never got it sold... he's still in western WI. He does have his winter grounds he owns in Texas and he was going to move to his summer grounds by Deer Park, WI. But last time I chatted with him that had not taken place due to the slowness of selling the original kennel property.

Good Luck!

Ken

Wasn't able to stay for awards so wanted to make sure it was listed on entry express before celebrating a pass. Handler was very pleased with only 2 1/2 weeks back in camp. Didn't take good lines on either memory bird but came up with both with short, effective hunts and no handling. Pretty sure quite a few dogs got dropped after handling on both memory birds. Only big fault was a slipped whistle on first blind. Both blinds had big trouble long of the bird and everyone was trying to stop the dogs right at the bird for a final push. Saw at least two other dogs already have the bird winded at the final whistle blow and ignore the command. She 3 whistled the second blind and I'm pretty sure one of the whistles was to show control of the dog to the judges after the slip. 2 more to title and then probably play around in a couple qualifiers.

What would the title be, SH or MH? Also, with the Master National in Virginia, MN this year is it your goal to get her/him qualified for that and run it?

Running for SH. She's really over trained for the events but want that title before we ratchet up the games. Not going to say MH isn't a worthy title, but don't see any value in it for me. Would much rather try for a QAA dog for puppy value. Sounds like the judges are really cranking down on the MH dogs in the region since so many are trying to qualify for a "local" national event.

Big weekend for dog events. Going to run the old girl in a fun event in Glencoe Saturday morning. She doesn't stand much of a chance against the young dogs but the eyes still light up at the line even at 11+ years. Good donation of $ to an upstart habitat org. Jezebel runs for SH title Sunday at Kelly Farm. Missed a couple events due to handler personal commitments and then a jam packed 2 weekend period due to heat cycle.

It's an AKC test they ran master and junior on Saturday and Junior and senior on Sunday. I think it's northern flights hosting it.

I am supposed to be running in Senior today but had to scratch my dog Friday night she came into heat. I'm really bummed we had gone 4/4 up to this point in senior and I was hopefully going to finish it off this weekend.

Saw a couple dogs were scratched in senior B. Senior A was a battlezone. Left after our dog was dropped but wouldn't be surprised to see less than 25% pass rate. They dropped 9 of 31 on the first series which was just a land double mark. Next series was water(mostly mud) double mark followed by water blind followed by land blind and then honor. Lot of tired dogs breaking honor and hyped dogs breaking from sitting in holding blind so long. Didn't see our dog on the first series but handler said she stomped them. She went out on the marks in the next series. Tall grass waist high plus 2-3 feet behind the mark. Many lost dogs(including ours) if it got into that trouble. Dogs were passing but it was tough.

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance

    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks?
