Ocicats International and Maine Street Cat Club Survive the End of the World!!!! Ocicats International and Maine Street Cat Club would like to take this
opportunity to thank all of our wonderful exhibitors and judges who helped make
this weekend's show at Gainesville State College in Oakwood GA such a success.

In true "Gods of Perversity" style, the week before the show presented us all
with numerous signs of the "coming of the apocalypse" to match our "End of the
World" theme :)

We had:
Plagues (from a family medical emergency from one of our clerks resulting in a
last minute emergency replacement --- all is well now ---- to a sick cat owned
by our benching mistress on Friday requiring unplanned vet trips)
Storms - (Thank you Hurricane Isaac) impacting judges and exhibitors safe
travels --- but lo and behold true CFA spirit won out and everyone made it!!!!
War (Oh --- well never mind ---that's just Atlanta Traffic)
Followed by Rage (i.e. overly stressful top blowing when everything that could
go wrong had gone wrong during show set up on Friday --- Thank you to our
exhibitors who experienced and weathered our emotional fire storm while we tried
to set up a show hall in less than 3 hours due to limited Friday access from the
college and late arrivals of critical infrastructure)

However - when all was said and done ---- and Saturday arrived ... The show
seemed to go well! The new show hall was wonderful and recived many compliments. Judges and club members alike enjoyed home cooked meals for our family style dinner and all in all it was a great success!!

Congratulations to our best in show ocicats and maine coons and of course our
best in show cats for both days!!!! You can check out photos from the show by action photographer Judy Pritash at
