The Red Point & Tortie Point Siamese Cat Club wishes all members, friends and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year. Many thanks to everyone who has supported us during the year, especially those who have given so generously by offering items to sell on the club stall, and those who have spent money with us. Our next club stall is at the SPSCC/SCSBE Siamese shows on 21st February 2015.

The Schedule for our 5th Championship Show on 11th April 2015, at Wendover Memorial Hall, will be available online from 11th January, and paper copies will be sent to last year's exhibitors as well as to members who are known to be current exhibitors. Anyone else requiring a hard copy should send an A5 SAE to the Assistant Show Manager, Ms Judy Emmens, 12 King Alfred Place, Winchester, Hants SO23 7DF. Copies will also be available from the usual trade stands at shows. The show is open to all colours of Siamese and Balinese, all LH/SH Oriental breeds, and we also have a Household Pet section again. Please enter early - last year we had to return several entries that had been received by the closing date, just because our hall was full.


We will again have our raffle, tombola and stalls for exhibitors to browse during judging, as well as our famous selection of hot and cold food for sale at very reasonable prices, including breakfast baps! This is the Siamese show everyone was talking about in 2014 - see pictures and feedback on the club website at

The Special General Meeting was held on Sunday 11th January 2015 to discuss the future of the TRCS by its current members.  The item on the agenda was the lack of members with the Knowledge and Commitment, which forms the very ethos of a specialist breed club, to come onto the Committee and take over the running of the Society.

It was agreed that the original aims  and objectives of the club have been achieved and as such, the proposal to wind up the club with dignity and, in accordance with the rules, with all assets distributed to Ragdoll Rescue, was passed with 30 votes in agreement with 3 votes against. There were no abstentions and the total ballot included postal votes.

GCCF have been updated accordingly and informed that a full comprehensive and audited statement will be sent to them in due course.

The TRCS has been a wonderful club but it had been the right time to call time and as such we take this opportunity to thank our members for their continued and valued loyal support.

A copy of this notice  will be sent in the post to all paid up TRCS members.
