Benching: Entry check-in is at 9:00 to 10:30 AM on Saturday. Judging will begin at 11:00 a.m. Saturday and at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. No change of benching assignments shall be made without the permission of the show manager. Benching cages are minimum 22"W by 22"D by 20"H. All benched entries, with the exception of kittens, must remain in the show hall until the advertised closing hour of 5:00 p.m. Saturday and 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Show Hall: is air-conditioned, handicapped accessible and hall is non-smoking. A cafeteria with seating is within the building. Show management will take all reasonable care to safeguard the personal property of exhibitors. However, neither the club, its members, nor the show hall shall be liable for loss or damage to such property.

Exhibitor Information: No litter pans will be provided -- we remind exhibitors to bring their own. All Championship, Premiership and registered Kitten entries will be scored for CFA National and Regional awards. All claws of all entries must be clipped prior to benching. No declawed entries are permitted. Cats or kittens should be clean and free of fungus, fleas, ear mites, and any contagious or infectious illness. There will be no veterinarian inspection prior to benching. However, it is strongly advised that all entries be inoculated before entry by a licensed veterinarian against feline enteritis, feline rhinotracheitis, calici viruses and rabies, and strongly recommended that entries be tested and found negative for FeLV before entry. The State of New Hampshire mandates current rabies inoculation for all cats and health certificates current within 10 days for cats/kittens being sold; it is advisable that you bring your cat's certificate(s). No kitten under the age of 4 months shall be permitted in the show hall. Only benched cats or kittens may be present in the show hall -- none may be confined to carriers, either displayed or under cages. All cats or kittens for sale or lease must be benched in the benching area, and must be eligible for CFA registration. The person offering the cat or kitten for sale must have an entry in the show and must ensure an en-closed, secured carrier is used for the transport of the cat being sold. Any sales activity is subject to the approval of the show management. Exhibitors must transport cats into and out of the show hall in an en-closed, secured carrier. No exhibitor may leave cats or kittens in the show hall overnight. First-time exhibitors should contact the show manager for assistance.
