UNOFFICIAL, but I've heard that Heck Rice  has won BOS in the canvas division. CONGRATULATIONS, Heck!
Also heard that Grayson Russell (spelling?) Has won the youth division w the Hoody pictured above. WAY TO GO, young Mr. Russell.

All I can tell ya'll is I just got off the phone with Ronnie and they are all having too much fun for it to be a show.  Ronnie, Heck, Speer and Green should be ashamed of themselves for enjoying it that much  ;D

Very good show today. I hope somebody took a bunch of pics and gets to post them up here on the forum.
 There were a several BOS winners from this forum, which included Scott Green, Rob James, George Williams, Grayson Russell, Scott Russell, Heck Rice  and myself. If I missed someone I apologize.  
Dave Speer it was a pleasure meeting and judging with you, hope to see you next year.
A big thanks to Heck and William Bruce and the rest of the crew for doing a fine job. I will be back again for sure.

Congrats to everyone who sent or took birds to the show!

Also, thank you to the volunteers!  I know that without them there wouldn't be a show.

I know it just happened and I'll find out eventually, but I am really curious to find out how this foamer did:

Thank you, Ronnie, and Congrats to you as well. That Old squaw is PHENOMENAL!!!

Mr. Point, I believe that your Scaup won species (two birds). It was then in the tank for Best of Divers (five birds). Best Diver was a James Richmond Goldeneye hen. A Ringneck was 2nd, and Richmond's Bufflehead won 3rd Best diver. That being said, Your bird was certainly one of the cleanest birds in the whole division (all foamers) in terms of everything excluding the paint. You did a LOT of things very well with this bird. Great head, good bill, nailed the over all profile, and the eyes look great. The paint (as mentioned in the other thread) is what let you down. Take note of the many suggestions you got on that other thread and integrate those things in to your next birds. What I'm saying is, this bird had the potential to not only win the Divers, but the WHOLE show. You did a fantastic job on many levels. Work on the paint, and I'm confident you'll start seeing your name at the top of many show results lists. Keep up the great work. I hope you can take what Ive told you and use it to your advantage rather than taking it personally.
