Foreign BAC
A Seminar featuring cats in the Foreign Section is to be held on 13 May, 2007 at 1st Leighton Buzzard Scout Centre, Grovebury Road, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire LU7 4SW.

The breeds being represented are Bengal, Egyptian Mau, Korat, Russian Blue, Snowshoe, Sphynx and Thai.

I am sure the afternoon will prove both interesting and informative, not only to full judges and candidates on the schemes, but also to breeders and exhibitors alike.

The afternoon starts with lunch at approximately 12 noon. The Seminar will commence at 1pm, finishing no later than 4pm.

If you are interested in attending, tickets, which include lunch, will be £8.50. If you require a receipt or directions to the venue, please enclose an SAE. Could you also advise if you are vegetarian. It would also be helpful to know which breed(s) you are interested in so I can make an even mix within each group.

Please apply to Hilary Dean, 37 Alfred Road, Birchington-on-Sea, Kent CT7 9NJ. Please make cheques/postal orders payable to Miss H. Rayner.
