RACCS first Championship show – 5 January 2013

It took us six years from establishing our club, but we got there – our first ever show, and what a lovely show it was, with a real party atmosphere!  Exhibitors had travelled the length and breadth of the country to join us and we had a great entry of 59 cats, kittens and neuters from 14 week old debutantes to mature veterans of the show scene.  The cats were beautiful, and achieved some great wins, and their owners all joined in our celebrations with enthusiasm.  Thanks to Donna Johnson for making our special cake, which went really well with both the champagne and the whisky. (I checked – it’s a tough life being a club chairman sometimes!)

Congratulations to all our winners, and special congratulations to our Overall Best in Show, the adorable Usual Abyssinian kitten Linczozo Cat’s Pyjamas, owned and bred by Morna Lincoln.  This cute little poppet was just 14 weeks old and won over absolutely everybody she met – a very popular choice for Best in Show from John Hansson. 

It’s difficult to name everyone who helped out on the day as there were so many people who were happy to do their bit to make the show a success, not least our behind-the-scenes superstar, Show Manager Simon Twigge, who kept everything running smoothly and delivered a wonderful show for us.  On the day he was helped by Margaret Lloyd and Kristi Stewart on the table, and Vicky Martin also kindly helped with handing out our rosettes.  We had loads of committee and club members helping too, from taking photographs, organising our celebrations, looking after the club stand, handing out awards and special prizes and all the other little jobs that needed to be done.  We were also fortunate to have some generous sponsorship from committee members, club members unable to attend the show, Royal Canin and Crystal Clear helping to make all our prizes more special: my thanks to you all.

My especial thanks go to Lynda Ashmore who made the kind offer for us to join her show when our previous arrangements had to be changed.  Without you we couldn’t have had this show and we are in your debt.

We hope to see you all at our next show, on 7 December 2013 in Annan when we will be ‘flying solo’ for the first time.

Until the next time!

Saturday the 5th of January saw the first shows of the 2013 Calendar year, several of which were held under the same roof at the Sports Connexion in Ryton On Dunsmore, Coventry.  This was a new venue for GCCF (previously TICA shows have been held at this venue) and in answer to Show Manager Lynda Ashmore’s prayers the weather on the day was mild for the time of year and in the main stayed dry.  It was a busy day for me as I was stewarding for the first time in a while and together with my Judge Sandra Woodley we had the pleasure of the company and assistance of 9 year old YES! candidate Connor Lane who was eager to learn and willing to please on only his second ever second-stewarding engagement.
