Women’s World Cup & Deadlines

The watch party is set in my house today for 3:00 pm. I have been instructed to leave the TV on tuned to the Women’s World Cup for the USA vs. Thailand game. The Colorpoints are rooting for USA while the Siamese, well of course they support Thailand. I expect to come home to find all out war.

In the meantime, we have some deadlines coming up. June 20th is not that far away. That is the last day to sponsor awards and purchase your banquet & other event tickets. Tomorrow is the last day to send Shelly pix for the breed awards, that was in an earlier note.

Please send any questions you have about the purchase of event tickets to Allene Tartaglia, atartaglia@cfa.org.

One more day!

Tomorrow, June 12, is the last day that Shelly will accept breed award photos for the banquet slide show. If you submitted a photo last year for the same cat, please do not assume Shelly has it.

Check here to see if your cat’s photo is still missing http://catalog.cfa.org/bw-photos.php . If you have any questions, please contact Shelly Borawski – sborawski@cfa.org



Sunday Transportation to Syracuse Airport

Shuttle transportation from the Turning Stone Resort & Casino to the Syracuse airport is available on Sunday morning at 7:00AM and 9:00AM – the shuttle will leave at these times. There is one shuttle for each time slot and there are only 20 seats available on each shuttle. Reservations must be secured and paid in advance and will be taken on a first come, first served basis. It is approximately a 40 minute trip to the airport so consider this when determining which shuttle time you want to reserve. Please use the following link to reserve your spot – http://catalog.cfa.org/annual.shtml
These shuttles have been procured by the North Atlantic Region for your convenience.

Missing National Breed Winner Photos

We are still missing National Breed Winner photos. If you are the owner of a National Breed Winner and haven’t sent in a photo, you can still do so. They will be accepted until Wednesday, June 12.

Updated List of Sponsors

Since the last update, 75 more generous people have joined the list of sponsors supporting our National Awards! Thank you everyone!

It’s not too late. You can still sponsor awards and be included on the screen and on a card placed with the award. This is a great way to congratulate your friends on their hard work and at the same time help CFA fund our awards.

This year, we have more HHP winners, we are providing a trophy for the Agility cats, and again presenting very nice custom designed trophies for the breed awards and national winners. These awards are a costly part of the annual, and your support offsets the cost allowing CFA to fund other endeavors, like the show sponsorship fund.

So take a few minutes to peruse the list of national award cats and sponsor someone, then hug your cat for Hug Your Cat Day, and finish the night off with some cheese to celebrate National Cheese Day. Wow, two excellent holidays on the same day!
