Amendment 17

– 17 – Classy Cats Society, Rome Cat Forum

RESOLVED: Amend Show Rules 27.03.a. and 28.01 to allow cats to earn the Grand Champion/Grand Premier titles based on grand points earned and not qualifying rings. In addition, it decreases the number of different judges needed for Champion/Premier confirmation, as follows:

27.03a. Six (6) Qualifying Rings earned under at least two (2) four (4) different judges are required for Championship or Premiership confirmation. For cats residing and competing in Hawaii, Mexico, Central America, South America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the Maritime Provinces of Canada (New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island) four (4) Qualifying Rings earned under at least two (2) three (3) different judges are required for Championship or Premiership confirmation. For cats residing and competing in Russia (east of the Ural Mountains), Malta, and Asia (except China, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Malaysia) four (4) Qualifying Rings earned under at least two (2) different judges are required for Championship or Premiership confirmation. Qualifying rings are not required for champion or premier if a cat reaches the point requirements for the grand champion or grand premier title for the area in which the show is held.
28.01Grand points for a cat that has completed requirements for Championship or Premiership will not be posted to a cat’s record until the Central Office has received a Championship Claim form, appropriate fees, and confirmed that championship or premiership requirements have been met. In the case of cats that earned points with a temporary registration number, those points also will not be posted to a cat’s record until the cat has received a permanent registration number. The following applies to a cat that has earned all of the required qualifying rings for its champion or premier title, or has qualified for the total number of points required to grand in its area of residence, but no claim form (champion/premier) has been received in Central Office:

RATIONALE: This is a show rule change that the CFA Board passed for the 2020-2021 show season. It allows cats to transfer to Grand Champion/Grand Premier when they have reached 200/75 points and submitted a championship claim form, even if they have not reached 6 qualifying rings. It has been in place for multiple shows now and proven to be popular. This proposal would make the change permanent.
