Unofficial Results Posted

Congratulations to all of the cats, their breeders and owners! And thank you everyone for making this a great event for CFA.

The unofficial results are now posted on the menu bar above and here. If you have questions, please give Central Office a chance to officially score the show and then contact them for answers.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

The Exhibitor Schedule

jaded2The Exhibitor Schedule is now available on the blog. Please note that this is for information only. All exhibitors will receive a color copy at the show so you do not need to print this yourself, although we understand some of you may want to print a larger version. Also note that absolutely no changes will be made at this time. If you have questions about the schedule, wait until the show to address them with Ambassador Cat & sometimes master clerk Jaded, or show management.

 

Weather Cat Says …

weathercatThe US is being pummeled with cold arctic air, and the Philadelphia area will see some cold temps this weekend. Friday is supposed to be sunny, high of 35 degrees Fahrenheit. Saturday will warm up to 40 degrees, and Sunday to 59 with rain forecast for the evening.

The show hall will probably be a bit on the cool side on Friday for setup, but we expect once the spectators start to arrive on Saturday the hall will warm up considerably. Dress appropriately.

Reminders!

Before you start packing for the World Show trip, here are a few reminders:

Grooming 101:

If you want to take advantage of private grooming tips from a CFA master groomer, Donna Isenberg, please contact her before the show. Donna’s email address is catsafrats3@aol.com.

Check-in and Setup:

Absolutely no exhibitors will be allowed to setup in the benching area prior to the start of Check In. Those working on the show who cannot go to their hotel first and need to keep their cats in the show hall should prepare accordingly (e.g. bring a larger carrier that can hold a litter pan) since we cannot allow you to setup until we are done with the benching and cage setup. We do not know what time the benching and cage setup will be complete, but expect that it will not be before advertised check-in.

Check In: Friday 3:00-8:00 pm Hall is closed and locked at 8:30 pm, and Saturday 6:30 – 8:00 am. Judging will start promptly at 8:30 am on Saturday & Sunday.

Exhibitor Entrance:

Exhibitors, don’t forget to use the exhibitor entrance when you get to the show hall. Go all the way around on Station Avenue and park in front of Hall B & C and enter there. Check-in and catalog pickup is by B & C. If you use the spectator entrance at Hall A, you will have to walk all the way through the lobby then all the way through both show halls to get to check-in. Trust us, you don’t want to do that! Find the correct entrance for exhibitors before unloading.

Absentees:

Please let the benching crew know if you will be absent from the show. We still bench all exhibitor space, your space will not be given away. But if we know we can move your space it may help us resolve benching conflicts. Contact Mary Kolencik, mdsiamese@yahoo.com, or Linda Peterson, karmacatz@verizon.net, to let us know if you are not coming.

Payment for Entries:

If you haven’t paid yet, you have one day to do so without penalty. The show flyer states two late fees:

Payment received after Nov 19th but before start of show $50
Payment received after start of show $75

It’s too late for USPS to get to the entry clerk by tomorrow, so use paypal. Make PayPal payments to payonline@cfa.org, please note World Show-RED or World Show-PURPLE in the message field. Please email the entry clerk to verify that he has received your payment.

Area Dining Opportunities

20130816-263731-merrick-cat-tableThere are many excellent restaurants near the show hall and each of the hotels in the area. The Things To Do in the Area page now contains a sampling of what is available. This is not an exhaustive list.

For those of you looking for a grocery store, there are several Wegman’s in the area and there is a Costco by the King of Prussia mall. There is a Target and a BJ’s by the show hall.
