Maine Coon BIS Special 15/9/2012
The Viking Cat Club are very pleased to announce our first show since the new Committee was put in place and the club is now working effectively for our members again.
We are running a one day International Show on Saturday the 15th September 2012 at The Grieg Centre in Alcester, Warwickshire, B49 6AD with the following International Judges:
The Alcester Show Hall has a limited capacity, so please ensure that you get your entries in early as we will close to entries once the hall capacity is reached. Map
We have a new and enthusiastic show team made up of Debbie Davies, Show Manager; Beth Hopkins, Assistant Show Manager and Margaret Scott, Entry Clerk
We believe this is just the start of things to come over the next few years and we plan to have 2 shows in 2013 and hope that these will be 2 day rather than 1 day shows.
Putting on a show is time consuming and hard work, if any of our members are interested in getting involved with helping to organise and run our shows please contact one of the show team. All volunteers will be gratefully received. We can be contacted by email at showmanager [snail] vikingcatclub [period] com -> mailto:showmanager [snail] vikingcatclub [period] com and entries [snail] vikingcatclub [period] com -> mailto:entries [snail] vikingcatclub [period] com
We look forward to receiving lots of entries over the coming weeks.

Mr Henry Hornell, Sweden
I have been a FIFe judge since 1990 and started with semi long cats. In 1999 I moved on to SIA/ORI and then PER/EXO in 2006, and I am now a student for short haired breed.
In the past I have owned Burmese and Sacred Birmans and sadly I lost my last cat about 3 months ago. I now have a dog called Tibbi who is a cross between a Tibetan Spaniel, mother and a Jack Russell / Shih Tzu, father. She is a really sweet and kind dog and has accompanied me to many cat shows.
It all started in 1972 when I was given a Blue Burmese from someone who thought I might like to show her. Our first show was in Stravanger, Norway but I found the names some cat owners called their cats really silly - like Princess, Baby and Sweethearts, however as time went on I found I called cats by those names too!
I then tried further shows and found I was actually starting to enjoy them, however if someone told me in 1979 you are going to be a Cat judge, I would have said they were bonkers, but here I am today, as a judge and wouldn’t change it for the world.
