The 2007 Show

Our Ninth Championship Show was held on
Saturday 7th July 2007 at
The OASIS LEISURE CENTRE,
North Star Avenue, Swindon

The show managers were Elaine Robinson and Jackie Pell, ably assisted by Mrs Talboys and John Robinson. The felines were to be judged as Best of Variety; the Overall Best Exhibit was to be judged by John Hansson and the Best Non-Pedigree by the Deputy Mayor of Swindon, Councillor Steve Wakefield.

This was an excellent show, and some of the very best in the feline show world were exhibited. Grooming and presentation was superb. I was very struck by Mrs L Szitkovic's Snoanda Hanky Panky, a seal pointed Ragdoll whose presentation was quite electric, as were all the other cats in the show. Exhibitors should be proud of their Sparkling coats and lively temperament. As usual, John Robinson was in top form with special gifts and prizes to winners in all classes and for all manner of events. A great organiser he makes the show quite unique. Mrs Talboys is a great mine of information and is able to solve all problems in the twinkle of an eye.

The wonderful thing about the venue is that one can sit out on the large lawns in front of the hall, and the day being sunny, exhibitors took time out to do a spot of sun bathing (but not in their bikinis). I always enjoy the judging of John Hansson, he really puts his all into it and takes his time, and is very particular. This is a difficult thing to do when picking a winner from such first class felines. After much deliberation he chose the Maine Coon. "It was not easy," he said, when both the Maine Coon and the Singapura were held up. John said that there wasn't too much to choose between them but that the Main Coon had that bit more maturity, this would come later when the Singapura grew older. He got a great cheer for this and everyone seemed very content with his decision. This had been a very enjoyable day and a superb show. A round of applause for all who made it so.
