Arena Cattle Dog Trial --- HWY 38 Arena
Marshfield, MO
Well we have had better starts to a new trial year but I guess it's like they say "it is what it is" .  We were able to take
DR Sam, Miss T and Kate to the cattle trial at Marshfield, MO.  Ruth is going to try to run DR Sam this year, so we
were mainly wanting to see if she could control him and everything went pretty well.  Miss T , I don't know what her
problem was, but she was a big disappointment.  Kate, I just got her, she is an own daughter of my old Jack dog.  I just
wanted to see how she would handle being away from home.  She did alright, still room for improvement.  This was a
Midstates trial, and as always, Midstates put on a really nice trial.  

It wasn't suppost to snow, but when we left, the snow was coming down pretty good.  By the time we got out of
Marshfield it was a near whiteout.  From Marshfield to west Joplin we saw tons of folks that were off in the ditches.  We
saw cars on their sides, we saw jack-knifed trucks, and we saw some serious wreaks.  PTL we were able to make it home
safely.  We are looking forward to the next trial at Rose Ranch.  
Hopefully the dogs will show better there. tom :)

Rose Ranch Cattle Dog Trial
Salina, OK
We only took Miss T to this trial.  On Saturday, she tied for the win on points, but her time was only good enough for 5th place.  Only 6 dogs
out of 18 finished the course, so we were very happy with her run.  On Sunday, it was a different story, she drew a cow that didn't want to
play (I'm sure all trial people can relate) anyway she was unable to finish the course on Sunday, but she still worked very nice.  We would
like to thank Rose Ranch and Midstates Assoc. for putting on a really nice trial.
Central Cattledog Association
Rose Ranch Cattle Dog Trial
Salina, OK
WELL, I sure hope the end of 2018 ends much better for us than the first part of 2018 has been.   
We only took Miss T again and she bombed out Saturday and Sunday.  She worked very poorly compared to what I know she can do.  Oh
well, I guess just keep trying and someday it will all come together :) Ruth and I would like to congratulate all the winners from both days
of the trial and we would like to thank Rose Ranch and the CCA for the good job they did putting the trial on.  If you have never put on a
trial, try it some time.  LOL   
CONGRATULATION!

OAKTREE FALL CLASSIC Sheep Dog Trial
October 6 & 7, 2018 --- Bartlesville, OK
Hi Folks, well another Oaktree Fall Classic is in the books.  Five states were represented this year and even though
the dog entries were down a bit, I believe we had some of the best dog work overall that we have ever had.  The
Classic is becoming almost like a Fall reunion, where you see old friends that you may not have seen for a year and a
time to make new friends.  There was so many people that helped out with the trial I dare not try to list everyone in
fear that I would leave someone out, but for me and Ruth, we want to say a big THANK YOU!  Due to a new gas line
being laid on our property we had to lay out the course different this year than we normally due and everyone loved
the new setup.  So we will probably stick with it for a while.  We hope everyone enjoyed their selves and had a good
time and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year!  Thank you.  tom & Ruth

Host: Rex & Marian Rose
Salina, OK -- December 1 & 2, 2018
NCA & CCA Sanctioned
The 2018 Oaktree Sooner Sheep Dog Trail was a nice trial with some good dogs.  We would like to thank all of the volunteer help.  The
Sooner trial wrapped up the 2018 OSDA trail season.  I believe we had 10 sheep trails but no cattle trials.  I hope the club will add some
cattle trials in the future.  The overall local trial year was a good time for all.  Ruth and I are looking forward to the 2019 season.  I will have
3 trials in 2019.  The first trial will be in late spring, I'm not sure on the date yet.  It will be an arena, point and time trial.    My second trial,
the Oaktree Classic is the first full weekend in October.  My third trial, the Oaktree Sooner is the first full weekend in November.  We are
looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new friends in 2019.
