March 2013 - The Spring is in the Air Cat Show
We would like to thank all our Judges (Vicki Nye, Pam DelaBar, Michael Hans Schleissner, Vicky Abelson, Peter Vanwonterghem, Yanina Lukoshova-Vanwonterghem, Jodi Garrrison, Dimitri Gubenko, Arie and George), Master Clerks, Ring Sponsors (Lionstone & Hanson Place, Cattery D'Mediterran, Cattery De Silsanos & D'Arnoud, Cattery Fairy 4 U, Cattery Tombrock, Cattery Composer Cat, Cattery Lac Hong, Cattery Fëanor, Cattery Kuorii, Cattery Asylum, Bunny promotion team, BeautyfullPets, Netty's Prezzies Energetix) and all Exhibitors for their superb contribution to the Spring is in the Air show!
Instead of a traditional 6-ring one day show, the new team of the DPC decided to extend the show format to 10 rings. 7 of the 10 rings were all breed, and 3 were LH/SH specialty. We organized the show together with the European Shorthair Club, and... we had a big succes! Everything worked well and we are proud to say we gained one of the highest counts for the European show season! Exhibitors all over Europe, some even from the United States, entered into our show. We and the ESC were very satisfied, so of course the long history of CFA shows in the Netherlands will continu in the future years! There really was a 'Spring is in the Air' feeling in Wijchen. We had a lot of fun and we saw lots of happy faces among the exhibitors. Everybody commented how wonderful the atmosphere was, there was laughter in the show hall, and unbelievable cats in competition. All of our judges mentioned the unbelievable quality of cats present, which made their job of deciding their top 10, so difficult. There were new Grands galore and many party's going on in the show hall to celebrate the wins, and the friendships.
This was really a wonderful compliment to all the exhibitors of Region 9 who came together to rescue our clubs, facing the difficulties of not being able to put on a show, you really did us proud. Thank you all so so much!
