SHOW RULES AND REGULATIONS The Show is held under Licence and the Rules of the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy and is open to all. Exhibitors must ensure that they have a current copy of the GCCF Rules. Copies of the GCCF Rules and Constitution are available from the GCCF Office, 5 King’s Castle Business Park, The Drove, Bridgwater, Somerset TA6 4AG. The latest issue of the Rules is November 2008; amendments since then are published on the GCCF website (www.gccfcats.org) or available from the GCCF Office on receipt of an s.a.e. Please make sure that you read and understand these and this schedule before entering the show. Ignorance of the Rules will not be accepted as an excuse for their breach. Many of the Rules have not been repeated in full in this schedule. The Committee reserve, to themselves, the right to: a) Appoint other judges should those advertised be unable to fulfil their engagement, and to appoint further judges should they be required. b) Fix and limit the number of exhibits at the show. c) To accept or refuse exhibit entry without giving reason. d) Cancel, amalgamate or divide classes. e) Publish a catalogue of the show containing information as to the exhibits and names and addresses of exhibitors. f) Retain a percentage of the entry fees to cover essential expenses, in the event of the show being cancelled for any reason. g) Refuse admission into the Show hall without giving a reason. h) Make an administration charge for any cheque returned unpaid by the bank. The exhibitors entry will be withdrawn from the show until such time as the entry fees plus an additional £10.00 administration charge are paid by that exhibitor. No further personal cheques will be accepted from that exhibitor. REGISTRATION PEDIGREE SECTION. All Cats, Kittens and Neuters exhibited at a GCCF Show must be registered. Cats registered on the Reference Register may not be shown in competition. To be effective for entry all registration and/or transfers must have reached the GCCF Office at least 21 days prior to the show. No Cat or Kitten, entire or neutered, born after 20.10.71, with one or both parents, grandparents or great grand parents unregistered shall be eligible for entry into Open Classes. Cats which are not normally resident with their registered owner should be transferred into the ownership of their keeper if they are to be shown. Exhibitors are reminded that in the event of rejection, all exhibits in the same registered ownership may also be rejected and clearance may be required for both households. Exhibitors are responsible for the correct description of the exhibits and for entering them in the correct classes. Please do not omit to Read and Sign the declaration – if joint owners, both must sign the form. GENERAL GUIDELINES ON ENTERING SHOWS Where possible, always complete your show entry form from your GCCF registration document (i.e. Registration or Transfer Certificate) for the cat that is to be exhibited, printing the details carefully to avoid any misinterpretation of your handwriting. If the document you have is headed ‘APPLICATION FOR THE TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP OF REGISTERED CATS’ this means that the cat is not registered in your name and you must complete the form and send it back to the GCCF with the transfer fee as soon as possible. It must be received by GCCF no later than 21 days before the show. If you have not received your registration document at the time of entry, complete the show entry form with the details from the pedigree, giving the first choice of name if it is a non-prefix registration, and put RAF (Registration Applied For) or TAF (Transfer Applied For), or both, in the

1


Regd. No. box. It is wise to enclose a stamped self-addressed acknowledgement postcard with all registration and transfer applications, particularly for cats entered for shows, so that you know that the application has been received by the GCCF. Try to keep a copy of your entry form – then, when you receive registration details and number, check these against the entry form and notify the Show Manager in writing of any differences in the details as well as giving the registration number, if applicable. This may not be in time for the printing of the show catalogue, but the Show Manager should attach your letter to your entry form which will save unnecessary notification of discrepancies when that show is checked. All catalogue errors are checked against the original entry form and any exhibitors’ letters are used for reference. Show managements are permitted to accept corrections, at their own discretion, up to the close of the show (on show day). Any such correction must not be an addition or substitution of any exhibit for which proof of entry cannot be validated or a change of exhibitor/owner. If you are entering several cats from your household and the registered owners (exhibitors) differ within that household/family, check with the Show Manager whether using one entry form is acceptable or not and, if it is, indicate very clearly which exhibitor owns which cat, ensuring all owners sign the entry form. It may be less confusing and more acceptable to the Show Manager for each owner to use separate entry forms, but joint owners of an exhibit(s) should always use the same form and both must sign. GCCF Rules Section 4 Rule 26 – Exhibitors are reminded that the decisions of the judges are final. Any attempt to influence such decisions, or to identify a cat or ownership of a cat to a judge at a show before the judge’s engagement has been completed may render the offender liable to disciplinary action. STATUS OF ERRORS – WHAT TO EXPECT Minor Errors These warrant a notification for your reference if the error occurs more than once and it is apparent that registration details were available at the time of entry or before the date of the show. Continuous repetition of the same error after notification will be referred to the Executive Committee. Examples of minor errors include: (a) spelling errors (b) separation of cat’s names that should be one word, and vice versa (c) administrative/breeder’s prefix omitted from, or partially incorrect name given for, exhibit (d) overseas title preceding the name of an exhibit, sire or dam etc. (e) full breed number known but not given (f) sire and dam reversed or named incorrectly (g) breeder joint when single and vice versa Incorrect Date of Birth This is usually classed as a minor error unless it affects an entry into classes based on age groups, when it could warrant disqualification of the exhibit from such classes; but if the incorrect date of birth affects the age suitability as a whole, then the exhibit will be disqualified from the show. N.B. AGE LIMITS: Kittens – not less than 14 weeks and under 9 calendar months on date of show Adults – not less than 9 calendar months on date of show Incorrect Name of Exhibit/Owner/Breeder If registration/transfer details were obviously available at the time of entry or before the date of the show, disqualification is inevitable. The following discrepancies are those which usually arise:

2


EXHIBIT REGISTERED OWNER/ EXHIBITOR

* * *

BREEDER

*

Totally incorrect name Joint when they should be single and vice versa Declaration not signed by registered owner(s) N.B. The exhibitor(s) must be the registered owner(s) of the cat and not necessarily the person who actually takes the cat to the show Totally incorrect name or names N.B. The breeder of a cat is always the registered owner of the dam on the date of the cat’s birth.

Registration/Transfer Not Received By GCCF 21 Days Before The Date Of The Show These entries will be disqualified. Remember, the effective date of all registrations and transfers is the first date of valid receipt by the GCCF, and if you enclose your own stamped addressed acknowledgement card with your application form this will be stamped with the GCCF Office date of receipt. Transfer Of Exhibit From Exhibitor To A New Owner Received By GCCF More Than 21 Days Before The Date Of The Show Entries such as these will also be disqualified as the exhibitor’s entry form becomes invalid. Incorrect Or Ineligibility Of Class Entry These will be disqualified from the class concerned – so always check with the Show Manager if in doubt about which class to enter. If a breed number is changed officially, it is important that you notify the Show Manager immediately. Exhibits entered in the Grand class or Imperial Grand Class must have qualified on or before the published closing date of the show and the title must have been claimed in writing. Exhibitors who enter Grand or Imperial Grand Classes without claiming will be reminded once, but if the title remains unclaimed the cat will be disqualified from this class at subsequent shows. Cat Registered On The Reference Register No cat registered on this Register is eligible to be shown and therefore these entries will be disqualified. The only exception to this is when a new breed becomes recognised; and then, cats of the breed may be shown even if they are registered on the Reference Register as long as this was the only reason for the Reference registration. Exhibitors may appeal against any disqualification resulting from show checking, giving their reasons. The appeal will be referred to the Executive Committee if considered valid and, if not, a letter of explanation will be sent to the exhibitor(s). The above advice, however, is aimed to keep your show entries trouble-free, not to mention the show checking. The leaflet ‘General Guidelines on Entering Shows’ is available from the GCCF Office on receipt of an s.a.e. or from the GCCF Website. VETERINARY Exhibits will be received at the entrance to the show hall from 8.00am until 9.30am on the morning of the show. Exhibits must arrive at the show hall in a suitable, secure container (top-opening recommended) and must be accompanied by the owner or the owner’s agent. (N.B.This recommendation relates to the amendment to Section 4 Rule 6) Note: If a cat cannot easily be removed from the carrier, it will not be vetted in/judged, such as for Best in Show. Each exhibit will be examined by the Club’s Honorary Veterinary Surgeons, who are authorised to exclude any exhibit they consider unfit. No exhibit may be penned before being examined. Vetting-in envelopes will be issued on arrival at the Show – there are no tallies. All cats exhibited at shows held under GCCF rules must have a current certificate of vaccination against FIE, FVR and FCV ("cat 'flu"). The full course, or booster, in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, must have been completed more than seven days before the show. The

3


certificate must have been issued by a veterinary practice/hospital and the last vaccination entry signed by a Veterinary Surgeon or by a listed Veterinary Nurse under the direction of a Veterinary Surgeon. Certificates should be readily available at vetting-in to avoid delay and should be properly completed and clearly indicate the identity of the exhibit and the owner to avoid confusion. Cats with an invalid vaccination certificate will be rejected under Section A. Cats unaccompanied by a vaccination certificate will also be rejected under Section A unless the exhibitor undertakes to provide proof of vaccination, valid for the show, by sending the certificate to the GCCF Office within seven days of the show. Failure to do so will lead to disqualification from the show and the cat's name will be placed on the rejection list until proof of vaccination is received in the Office. N.B. A current certificate of vaccination is one which is not more than seven days past the manufacturer's recommended interval between boosters. Please note that HOMEOPATHIC VACCINATION cannot be accepted, under GCCF Rules, for the purpose of vetting in. Exhibits must have clean ears and coats free from pests. Any exhibit rejected by the Veterinary Surgeon must be removed by its owners and entry fees are forfeit. If in the Veterinary Surgeon’s opinion it is desirable, all other exhibits from the same household and the owners shall be debarred from attending the show. The Veterinary Surgeon’s decision is final. VETERINARY REJECTIONS Exhibitors whose cats have been rejected at shows should note the following points: a) When sending a clearance certificate to the GCCF Veterinary Officer please include your copy of the rejection slip. b) Do not send certificates by recorded delivery as this can cause delays in receipt. If acknowledgement of receipt is required, please enclose a stamped addressed postcard for signature acknowledging receipt. c) Exhibitors should not attend shows until they have received a letter accepting and confirming clearance from the Veterinary Officer. PENNING OF EXHIBITS Every exhibit must be provided with a white sanitary tray and clean plain white or near-white blanket or blankets without distinctive marking or edging, which may be arranged in such a manner as to assist the comfort of the cat. Cellular blankets and sewn cat beds are not allowed, but white Vet-bed or like material may be used if preferred. A hot water bottle or heat reflecting material or a cool pack may be used, provided they are covered by a blanket in accordance with GCCF rules. Any other form of heating will lead to disqualification. All exhibits must have water, but food containers must be removed when judging commences at 10am, and may not be returned until 12.30pm. One small toy may be placed in the pen after the time announced for the admission of the public. Judges are instructed to pass any pen that is distinguished in any way, other than official notices or award cards. No written or printed matter may be placed on competitive pens – For sale signs are NOT permitted (cats and/or kittens should not be sold at shows). Exhibition pens only, may be decorated and may carry printed matter relating to the exhibit. Exhibits actually received into the Show Hall cannot be removed without the sanction of the Show Manager. They are only received on condition that the Club shall not be held responsible for any loss or damage to exhibits, boxes or baskets or in any other way. Please Note that it is the Exhibitors responsibility to ensure that their cat’s pen is safe and secure before leaving the hall. The Show closes at 5pm or earlier at the Show Managers’ discretion. No cat may be removed from its pen before this time. Any exhibitor interfering with or removing any cat from its pen during the show, except with the consent of the Show Manager, will forfeit any award that may be due to his or her exhibit.

JUDGING AND JUDGES Judging will commence at 10.00am and exhibitors will be requested to clear the hall at this time until 12.30am, whilst the Open Classes are being judged. Judges are empowered to withhold any prize, award or certificate in any class if the exhibits do not, in their opinion possess sufficient merit. Prizes will be awarded from the Judge’s award slip and not from any catalogue or prize card. A Judge’s decision is final. An exhibitor may not approach a Judge, nor enter into conversation with a Judge, until that Judge’s engagement is complete.

ADVICE TO EXHIBITORS You are advised against purchasing any shampoos that change a cat’s coat colour or the use of Stress Remedies including Scullcap or Valerian which change a cat’s normal appearance or physical reaction as this is forbidden at GCCF shows and will lead to disqualification under Section 4 Rule 22. Any person whose cats have been rejected under sections C or D must not officiate as a judge or steward, or in any other capacity which requires the handling of cats at shows, until a clearance certificate as required by the GCCF has been obtained. Queens who are pregnant, lactating or who have kittened within 12 weeks of the date of the show may not be shown. The use of small battery driven fans in pens can be dangerous, and could also be considered a distinguishing feature. Aerosols and sprays may not be used in the show hall. Please note that in addition to the classes you have entered, your cat may also be handled for the purpose of assessing candidates in the GCCF appointment scheme. It is recommended that you clip the claws of your cat/kitten before the show. Owner’s Liability: Please note that Exhibitors (Owners) are responsible for the cost of any veterinary treatment required by their cat/s during the Exhibitor (Owners) absence from the Show hall. Details from entry forms will be processed by computer. Advertisements: Exhibitors are advised that advertising the future attendance of their Cat(s) at any GCCF show could lead to disciplinary action and great care should be taken when advertising in magazines, newspapers, newsletters or on the internet. The GCCF Veterinary Sub Committee wish to remind Exhibitors that cats should not be left in cars.

SHOW WITHDRAWALS AND ALTERATIONS The last date for withdrawal of a cat from a show is the advertised closing date for entries at that show. After this date the cat/s concerned may not be withdrawn from the catalogue of the show and the 13 day Rule about entering two shows within 13 days will apply. There will be no refund of entry fees if the cat is not present at the show and the entry in the catalogue must not be withdrawn. This ruling does not prevent Show Managers from returning entries after the closing date of the show if they are unable to accept them into the show because the show is full. ALL WITHDRAWALS MUST BE IN WRITING. ALL ALTERATIONS AND/OR ADDITIONS TO ENTRY FORMS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING TO THE SHOW MANAGER No telephone alterations and/or deletions will be accepted. Corrections to your entry form can be made on show day. If a kitten is entered as an entire and then neutered before the show, the exhibitor must notify the show manager as soon as possible. CORRESPONDENCE All correspondence must be accompanied by a s.a.e. if a reply is required. Any complaint related to the show must be forwarded to the Show Manager within seven days of the show.

NOTICE OF CHANGE An announcement in the official GCCF Journal of any alterations or additions to this schedule or in these regulations shall be deemed sufficient notice. GCCF TITLES Please see Rules, Section 4, Rules 11a and 11b. a) The title must be claimed before the higher class is entered. b) Overseas titles do not qualify cats for higher classes, and may not be used in front of the cat’s name but may be placed in brackets after it in the catalogue. c) Cats which are registered with both the GCCF and GCCF of Ireland and which gain the same title at shows organised by both organisations may use ‘International’ titles once these are verified by both organisations. The title of Champion for Cats and Premier for Neuters shall be granted to exhibits winning three Challenge Certificates at three shows, under three different judges. A GCCF Challenge Certificate will be offered for each Cat/Neuter Open Class of recognised breeds with Championship status. The title of Grand Champion for Cats and Grand Premier for Neuters shall be granted to a Champion or Premier winning three Grand Challenge Certificates at three shows, under three different judges. The Grand Champion and Grand Premier classes are Open classes, and a Champion or Premier exhibit may enter both its breed Open Class and the Champion/Premier Class. The title of Imperial Grand Champion for Cats and Imperial Grand Premier for Neuters shall be granted to a Grand Champion or Grand Premier winning Five Imperial Grand Challenge Certificates at five shows, under five different judges.
