The Guild of GCCF Judges and Stewards is holding its Annual Seminar (Tabby Or Not Tabby - That Is The Question!!) following the AGM at Mappleborough Green Village Hall, Studley, Warwickshire B49 6AD on Sunday, 29 October 2006, with vetting-in from 12 noon.

This promises to be a really interesting and informative afternoon that will cover Classic, Spotted, Mackerel, Ticked, Marbled and Rosetted patterns across all hair types and lengths. A number of top breeders and owners have promised cats and there will also be Powerpoint presentations covering various aspects and examples of cats that cannot be there “in the fur!”

There will be a delicious lunch at 12.30p-m, followed by the Seminar at 1.30pm. We hope to finish by 4pm to allow people to journey home with some daylight.

The cost for lunch and the Seminar is £5 for Members of the Guild and £7.50 for non-members. There is no charge for those people providing cats.

If you feel you have a cat that would be suitable, please contact Anne Gregory by email - ANNE@beaumaris.fsnet.co.uk or telephone on 01634 361645.

If you wish to attend the Seminar, please contact Shirley Bullock on 01785 822957 or email shybu@abymese.orangehome.co.uk. This is very important as we will need accurate numbers for catering.
