Dear Members

 

The Board decision dated 30.09.2015 has been reworded in the light of ambiguous phraseology: The WCF is excellent
equipped with WCF judges specially trained in our system. Therefore no further judges permissions will be issued for
judges who did not proceed their exams in the WCF. An apprenticeship at one of the WCC member associations will be
treated equally like a WCF education. This Decision enters into force immediately and will be presented at the next
General Assembly for voting.

 

The Board

 

Explanatory we would like to add: Judges of World Cat Congress member associations can be invited as usual.
They are treated in the show-licensing like WCF judges as long as no individual decision of the board and the judge
Commission against such licensing exists. Non WCC judges may continue to be licensed with verification by the
judges' commission and special permission by the Board for show-licenses.

SILVER JUBILEE - 25 years WCF

 

We want to set a sign!
Next year 25 years ago, five friends, who loved cats very much, founded the WCF. Our statute is as old as the WCF,
not more modern and therefore, unfortunately, all too vulnerable. We want to remind all, on the occasion of our silver
anniversary in 2013, with the Silver Jubilee Rings of the love for our furry friends and the fact, that cats love is the
base for the work in the WCF.

 

In this ring may participate all cats that are present on the exhibition - regardless of gender, age and breed. Special
emphasis should be placed in the awarding of the Silver-Master to the nature of cats. We love lovely cats and “cuddlyness”
and sweetness, so shall be considered in addition to standard evaluation by the judge. This way we want to show, that the
base in the WCF is not only about competing ideas but especially for the love we feel for our cats and our cats for us.

 

There will be the possibility for member clubs of WCF to hold the Silver-Master Ring with the title Silver Master.

 

Applications for permission of holding a Silver Jubilee Show with Silver Master Ring can now be made to the Board.

 

Issued on Silver Jubilee Shows Cats get double points for these exhibitions for the Best Cat of WCF.

 

The organizing club will receive an official Silver Jubilee banner of the WCF and the title of Silver Master may be awarded
to the 2 best cats shown at the Silver Jubilee-ring .

 

More information is available upon request at the office of the WCF at wcf@wcf-online.de

Show license:

 

With the approval of the President of the Disciplinary Commission and the President of the Judges Commission, the Executive Board has
approved the following rule: Clubs wishing to engage non-licensed judges for judging must submit copies of the documents concerning
the judge examines to the Judges Commission to verify status before applying for a show-license. The authorization to apply for the show-
license for that judge will be issued after verification of the certificates for the verified classes by the Judges Commission. This verification
must be done again in each individual case and is a service provided by WCF. The fee is 20 € each individual case. The review of the
qualification is not equivalent to the granting of the Judges License and does not automatically lead to a recognition of the judge as a WCF
judge. This rule does not apply to judges of the WCC member associations and associations that contractual agreement with respect to
their judges with WCF. This rule is valid from 01 July .2012 and will be taken on the agenda at the next General Assembly for vote.

Project:

 

To protect the WCF trademark from abuse, the Board initiated the project: “Central Registration Numbers” This project will be placed on
the agenda of the next General Assembly for confirmation The project explains as follows:

 

All confirmed WCF members can participate voluntarily in this project If a club agrees on the project, all new pedigrees issued by the club
must be produced with hologram stickers and central registration number. Voluntarily the hologram stickers can as well be placed on
already existing pedigrees issued by the club. New patronage members are obliged to participate in the project All participating clubs receive
“counterfeit-proof” hologram stickers with registration numbers. These registration-numbers have to be given additional to the internal club
registration number. The hologram sticker must be placed on the pedigree. The club has to send in a pdf scan of each produced pedigree with
the central registration number to the central office via email The fee per hologram sticker is 3 Euro. The production and sale of pedigrees
stays with the club. The hologram stickers must be purchased in advance from the WCF, minimum 100 stickers per order.

Joint show without permission

 

The organization of the joint-show “FOREST CAT SHOW 2012,19-20 May 2012” in Moscow by CFC CatExpo RU-0213
violates the procedures proclaimed by the WCF for joint shows. CFC CatExpo RU-0213 has not asked nor received
permission for organizing a Joint show. Therefore the license number #12059 is cancelled. All titles given in this show
will not be valid in the WCF. The punishment fine for the club is 500 Euro. All pedigrees, titles and catteries registered
by Cat Expo RU-0213 will be non-valid until payment of the fine. As it is the second time, that the rules for joint-shows
are ignored by CatExpo RU-0213, the voting for expulsion of the club will be placed on the Agenda of the next WCF’s
General Assembly.
