CLOSING DATES

Regular Closing

CO-OWNED CATS
Cats co-owned by members of two different households are eligible for the multi-cat entry discounts only if a Xerox copy of the cat's TICA registration accompanies the cat's entry. The registration must show the names of both co-owners. (If you are entering such a cat online, you must fax, mail, or email a copy of the registration to the entry clerk in order to receive these discounts.)


PAY AT THE DOOR?
Yes, you can pay at the door. But it'll cost you $25 extra!
All entries not paid in advance (by 10 PM on
Monday, November 9, 2020)
are subject to a $25 late fee
.

Why? Because collecting entry fees at the door really slows down the check-in process. Also, the club really needs to collect funds up front: most of our expenses must be paid before the show starts.


(The fine print: Any exhibitor whose payment has not been received for any reason by 10 pm, Monday, November 9, 2020 will be assessed a $25.00 late fee. Payment at the door will be at the sole discretion of the Entry Clerk, will be subject to the $25.00 late fee, and MUST be paid in cash. No exceptions!)

IMPORTANT: To enter this show, you must first read and agree to all terms and rules listed below.
Once you have read the terms, if you agree, you must check the checkboxes at the bottom of BOTH yellow scrolling areas in order to submit your order.


By entering this show, I agree to ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING HEALTH AND SAFETY RULES:

    Anyone not complying with these Health/Safety Rules will be required to leave the show without refund of any monies paid.

    1 General Policies

    A) This show will NOT be Open to the Public for health and safety reasons.

    B) All persons entering the show hall must sign this document indicating they have read, understood, and agree to these Health and Safety Policies and Procedure in force at this agricultural event.

    C) All persons entering the show hall must agree to the following general rules:

    a. Comply with social distancing; remain at least six feet away from others.

    b. Wear face mask at all times while in the show hall.

    c. Use sanitizer on your hands several times throughout the day.

    D) Hand sanitizing stations will be placed at the entrance and throughout all common areas. Exhibitors are to bring their own personal hand sanitizers for the benching area.

    E) Dedicated staff will frequently clean all touch points throughout the show hours. The show hall will be cleaned, sanitized and disinfected Friday and Saturday evenings for the next day's events.

    F) Participants will bathe all cats prior to arriving at the event.

    G) We encourage participants to clean and disinfect all equipment being brought from home before entering the show hall and again before they take them back home.

    H) We discourage the sharing of items/equipment that are difficult to disinfect between participants.

    2 Check-in Procedures

    A) Participants will maintain social distancing while proceeding through the check-in procedures.

    B) All people entering the show hall must complete and provide a short health questionnaire prior to checking in.

    C) All people entering the show hall must have their temperature taken with a non-contact thermometer. If a person has symptoms and a fever, the person (and their party) will not be admitted to the facility.

    D) If a person has multiple symptoms and a temperature is present, the person (and their party) will not be ad-mitted to the facility.

    E) All people entering the show hall must provide and use the following safety gear:

    a. Face mask

    b. Sanitizer/disinfectant for personal benching space

    c. Protective gloves

    F) If people do not have the items in 2D above, safety kits will be available for $5/each (containing 2 face masks, 2 pair protective gloves, and personal sized sanitizer).

    G) Due to COVID-19 restrictions, other than show staff, the only people allowed in the show hall are exhibitors with at least one entry. An exhibitor is defined as ONE individual. Each exhibitor may bring no more than ONE additional person (i.e., spouse, child, or assistant).

    3 Benching Areas

    A) Exhibitors will be benched with 6 feet between themselves and other Exhibitors.

    B) An Exhibitor may opt out of this requirement should they wish to waive that right (See Summary Sheet). As an example, Exhibitors who travel and typically bench together can opt for no separation of their cages and/or groom spaces. To be benched closer than 6' to each other, both you AND the other exhibitor must request this.

    C) Participants are to put their cats in the ring cages. After judging, remove cats as quickly and quietly as possible.

    D) Participants are to follow signage instructions regarding the entry and exit points in the judging rings, so people do not pass close to-gether while coming/going out of the rings.

    E) Do not deliver or pick up cats directly behind a judge when they have a cat on the judging table.

    E) Maintain social distancing.

    F) Finals will be presented in two phases — bottom 5 presented and excused, then top 5 presented and excused so there are limited people observing the finals.
