Show results

We're back from the Blue Ridge Cat Fanciers show in Woodstock, Virginia. This ACFA show is in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. This club really knows how to put on a good show. It's small but really is a honey of a show. Good vendors, good food--the Virginia barbecue was tasty, and friendly exhibitors. We are very proud of our cats. Midnight, our Russian Black, received two second best NBC finals (NBC is New Breed or Color) and one best NBC final. Alexi, our Russian Blue alter received three finals. She received two ninth best alter by two all-breed judges and one fourth best alter by a specialty judge. However, her son, Herbie Love Bug, did really well. He received two fourth best cats from specialty judges; a sixth best cat and a third best cat by allbreed judges, one of whom is the president of ACFA. We are really proud of him!
We can't wait until next year!

On the way up, we went by the Cabarrus Arena and Event Center to see where the new Tarheel Cat Fanciers will hold their first show. It looks like quite a place. After we finished, we headed up toward Virginia and the show.

On the way home, we drove some on the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains where the cats saw deer and beautiful vistas of the Valley and Allegheny Mountains to the west, and the to the east, lower elevations. We ate supper in Lexington, Virginia, home of VMI and Washington and Lee University. We stayed in Radford, Virginia, home of Radford University.

We also enjoyed lunch with the cats' great-grandmother at Maggiano's Little Italy in Charlotte, NC.

I am glad that the cats all did so well at the cat show. They must have loved all the great scenery on the way home.

Is there an explanation of the judging/scoring terms available somewhere? We assume there is a difference between "fourth best alter" , "fourth best cat" and "second best final", but we have no idea what it is.

Anyway, congratulations on the results.
