Flight C -- Are We Having Fun Yet?

Flight C ran their first test which was named “Are We Having Fun Yet?” This test is a land triple with a blind and an honor. The Judges Bill Teague and Carol Hynes set up a scenario of a goose hunt with all stations using goose calls. The Scenario is that a flock of geese flew in, the hunters have shot them up and now they have to be picked up. The test is a wide-open triple. The order is from right to left. The right-hand bird is thrown to the left. The middle bird flyer is shot to the right. The left-hand bird is thrown to the right. After picking up all three birds must run a blind between the left and middle gun stations and farther up the hill. When all is completed there is an honor. The time on this test is between five and eight minutes.
