June 29, 2013
Japanese Bobtail Breed Council Meeting
Members & Guests present:
Mark Campbell Megan Antijunti
to all the owners of Japanese Bobtails who showed their cats so
beautifully. (Grands, DM, RW, NW & AW) this season. A special
thank you to Dennis Allen who prepared and printed our awards booklet.
A special thank you to Lynn Search who notified all the winners and
collected all the pictures for the awards booklet. A very special thank
you to Vanadis Crawford who maintains our JBBC website, designed the
rosettes, printed & laminated the award certificates, did the layout
for the awards booklet and created our awards slide presentation.
Without the generous sponsorship of 2 of our members neither the awards
booklet nor the lovely rosettes would have been possible.
CFA Board Meeting with Breed Council Secretaries:
- Reminder to renew membership by 8/1/2013, also discussion on changing
the membership due date to 1/30/2014. Breed council Secretaries are in
favor of changing the date to January.
- Discussion on how to access different lines in older pedigrees. It
may be possible when the new computer system is totally active. The
purpose would be to get CFA’s assistance in identifying little used
lines from the registry to increase genetic diversity.
- Discussed ways to recruit new members from overseas, language is a problem.
- Breed Booths should have sponsorship money available for the World Show.
- When the new computer system is up and running it may be possible to get copies of all of the past breed standards.
- New Color class requirements- the board would like to see sustained
interest over several years when a new color is being introduced. They
would also like to see different examples of these new colors.
- The Board does not believe in making a lot of changes to the standard.
“A standard should be a standard and not subject to frequent change.”
Lynn Search brought up the possibility of Region 7 hosting the JBF show the end of March 2014.
also brought up the possibility of ring sponsorship from the Japanese
Bobtail Breed Council for the National Capital show in Arlington, Va. in
September 2014. The cost is $1200, and if decided, funding would have
to figured out.
We watched the lovely slide presentation, and the certificates and rosettes were presented.
A general discussion followed.
Crawford discussed the World Cat Congress show to be held in Miami, FL
on March 8&9, 2014. There are many different associations
represented at this show. Wayne Trevathan will be judging 1 ring and
Jill Archibald will be officiating CFA Feline Agility. It is a TICA
on the problem with registering the black smoke color, if there are
still issues with registering a color with the right registration
pre-fix please copy me when you notify central office.
Thank you for your continued support of CFA.
