THE MAIDSTONE & MEDWAY CAT CLUB’S CHRISTMAS CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 19.12.2009

All I can say is that someone up there was smiling! If our show had been at the Black Lion, Gillingham as usual this year, with the appalling weather conditions in Kent, there would have been no show!!! Brian and I left hurriedly on the Thursday afternoon as the snow started falling to ensure the show equipment and two of the Show Managers were there at Bracknell and we are very pleased we did so! Then the blizzards came and roads were a nightmare! Our Assistant was snowed in, her roads in East Sussex impassable, but she proved to be a very useful liaison as the messages of woe began to pour in and was able to reassure exhibitors on the various chat lists that the Show would go ahead.

By the Saturday we were possibly TEN judges down but thankfully four of those with a question mark about their ability to make the journey did arrive and that was a great relief. We made the decision to “go for it” and get through the day swiftly, aiming to close the show at 2.30 to allow our intrepid exhibitors the chance to travel home as far as possible in daylight. Everyone thought it a great idea and so we forged ahead. .....

With a full complement of Vets organised by Susan and Sarah Hope, exhibitors were able to bring their cats through without hassle so the day started well! We were very grateful to all our judges and their stewards; every single Open, Miscellaneous and Club class was judged and the results posted – it was a superb feat! Our table was managed by Vanessa Marriott who had everything under control; her excellent band of workers processed the results at an amazing pace. Sue Amor had her own team sorting the rosettes and prize cards which were quickly distributed to make the pens look festive. We did not “clear the hall”; we let the exhibitors stay around the edges to support the raffle and our stall holders and that seemed to give the show a great, almost “party” atmosphere;  everyone was smiling and supportive!

We were sorry to return a large number of entries, as the hall at Bracknell was smaller than the Black Lion, but we wanted to keep all the breeds together to retain the show’s identity. Kit Game produced a cunningly executed hall plan that enabled us to accept 490 cats, still have sufficient space for stalls and a good area for Best in Show to be enjoyed without overcrowding.

Thanks to the great generosity of R & L Pet Products and Royal Canin we were able to give cash prizes and goodies to all our Best of Variety and Best in Show winners both Pedigree and Household Pets. The money saved from purchasing Miscellaneous and Club rosettes was used to give sets of “Christmas Bonuses” where lucky pen numbers received cash presents too – all adding to the fun and festivity!

Thanks to everyone’s fantastic efforts we managed to close the show just after two thirty and I was back at the hotel relaxing in a hot bath by 4.30 pm!! On behalf of the Show Management Team we would like to thank our committee, helpers, friends, EVERYONE who worked so hard to make the show the success it was. We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2010 – see you next year on Saturday 18th December!
