Another Annual for the Record Books!

What an incredible annual! Region 1 did a great job from a fantastic delegate bag to an extraordinary hospitality event on Friday night. The location was perfect. Everything went smoothly and I managed to avoid the craps tables entirely.

Larry Johnson’s formal photos from the banquet are up.

The next annual is in Spokane Washington. Spokane is in a beautiful part of the Pacific Northwest. There are plenty of tourist opportunities for those who wish to turn the trip into a vacation.

June 17-June 21, 2020 The Davenport Grand West, Spokane Falls, WA

June 16-June 20, 2021 Westin Galleria, Houston, TX

June 22-June 26, 2022 Galt House Hotel, Louisville, KY

And then in 2023, Tucson Arizona where we can all descend on Lisa-Maria Padilla where she will take us to Saguaro National Park for an obligatory pose with a giant Saguaro cactus.

The location for region 6 in 2024 is not yet final but Iowa is currently the front runner. Time to get familiar with the Music Man! Oh we got trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with C and that stands for CATS!

Thanks again North Atlantic Region!!!

No Cats @ Turning Stone – Reminder

A reminder that the Turning Stone does not allow any cats in guest rooms. Yes, this is different from prior years but we have no “wiggle” room on this and there are no exceptions.  There is a LaQuinta very nearby which may have rooms available. The phone # to call for reservations is 315-231-5080. There is no fee for pets at the LaQuinta although the guest is responsible if there are any extra cleaning fees. 

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,

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.
