Lakeland & District Cat Club
Exhibitors please note that there is an error in the Schedule. Class 245 to be judged by Mrs M. Rodger is incorrect. This class is to be judged by Ms A. M. Marien.

As previously advertised, our show is on 17 June 2006, and Schedules are available from Mr E. Irving, 69 Highlands Avenue, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria LA13 0AH. A stamped addressed envelope is required.

You can also request a PDF version by e-mailing to brasov1972@aol.com or you can visit our Club’s webside to print it at www.lakelandcatclub.co.uk

I have sent e-mails to those that requested last year. However, some of you have changed your location address and those e-mails have bounced back to me. Please be reminded if you still want correspondence on show info to send me up-to-date contacts so I can update my address book at brasov1972@aol.com

Please note this show is limited for entry. I have made some more pens available this year.

Several late entries had to be turned away last year due to lack of space. Stall space is running out; all last year’s traders have had their waiver period and I am now accepting bookings on a first-come basis.
M. Kavanagh, Chairman
