The Maidstone & Medway Cat Club’s Christmas Championship Show

Saturday 17th December 2011

With almost 400 exhibits we had fewer cats than in previous years, but felt that was a combination of the appalling weather in 2010 and also the financial problems everyone is facing at the moment. However, the judges complimented us on the high quality of the cats that proved challenging to judge in a number of classes. On behalf of Brian, Kit and Shelagh, I would like to thank everyone who supported our show and also thank you so much for the excellent feedback we have received. Thankfully the weather was kinder this year and although it was cold, the sun shone brightly for us. We like to keep our exhibitors in the hall through the morning to support the stalls by shopping and also to be able to watch the judging from a safe distance! We positioned the award boards in the Forest Suite and that prevented a crush of people outside the entrance to the Main Hall. There was also the Balcony Suite upstairs where people could have a sit down and watch the judging from afar …. We are very grateful to the Bracknell Leisure Centre for their excellent co-operation and support and also for the catering which I have been told was very good indeed.

There was a good selection of stalls; we thank them all for their support and hope the day was a financial success for them. We owe a particular thank-you to Bob Towner of R & L Pet Products for his generous sponsorship of our Best of Variety and Best in Show exhibits; Royal Canin and Crystal Clear for their provision of “goodies” for every exhibitor and Tigga Towers for their Voucher and Christmas Present as our number one prize in the Raffle – so many people wanted to win that (myself included!) so it was a real boost to the funds.

We are very fortunate to have a wonderful committee who come along and work extremely hard all day to ensure a smooth running show; we thank them all for their commitment and good humour as they slaved away. We were particularly grateful to Susan and Sarah Hope for arranging vetting-in in for us. It is a nightmare finding vets to come along and work on the Saturday before Christmas, but they managed to find sufficient and everything was able to start on time! Tania Murray stepped in and did a wonderful job working with a visiting TV crew to ensure all was well – she is a star! Marc Henrie took a wonderful set of pictures which can be seen on the GCCF website – they give a good picture of the day.

We would like to thank all our judges and stewards for their hard work. The day seemed to run smoothly and all was finished in time to close the show at 4.00pm enabling people to start their journey home in good time.

This was the last year for Brian and myself as show managers of the Maidstone & Medway; after twenty four years we felt it was time to stand down. We will still be there to support the show and I will be able to do what I love the most – judge the cats! We would like to thank everyone for their good wishes, it has been a wonderful experience and it was great to “go out” on a high!

 

Finally - congratulations to all the cats – you made our day – have a purrfect Christmas!

We hope to see you all again on Saturday 15th December 2012 at the

Bracknell Leisure Centre.
