I just wanted 1 Winners Ribbon.
Are the Ribbons expensive?
post #32 of 58
They are if the club has to order them for every show. That's what was done a long time ago. Then a club got the bright idea to make permant heavy duty ribbons to use in the rings and so they were recycled in each class and the club had that less of an expense.

The rosettes are expensive - am guessing they probably run about $5 a piece to make (could be way off since I don't deal with that any more). You figure there are 40 rosettes in each ring (top 10 for Cat, Kitten, Alter, HHP) times the number of rings. So a typical 8 ring show would have 320 rosettes alone....do the math...

As long a you have a paper or flat ribbon that is not a permant one, its ok. But its not necessary. You want the rosettes to keep

The Rosettes are way nicer anyway.
They had paper Ribbons.
I did not take them.
I have learned a lot now.
Now I need to learn how TICA works.
I have no clue what class to put her in there.
I will have to ask about that later on.

Sorry, I said ribbons I meant Rosettes.

We have rosettes for top 5 (sometimes just top 2), best in breed & reserve in breed depending on breed numbers.

I've never seen paper ribbons. Our rosettes are usually ordered from the US.

Its ok.
We have top 5 or top 10 depending on how many cats there are.

Wow from the US?! You should get them from Quality Presentations in Palmerston North, http://www.qualitypresentations.com/

Most clubs in NZ get there clubs from there and lots of AUS clubs too. Also most clubs only do 1 ring of sashes/rosettes now (not ribbons they are stink!)

If you didn't see my show pics thread in Fur pics, here are two of the rosettes Tales won on the weekend, made by Quality Presentations



The premier show of the year which is my club's show does Ribbons, Rosettes, Sashes & Comets - I think in 5 rings and the 6th ring is prize card only. This is what I feel shows should all be like. No shows in NZ have reusable ribbons/rosettes but you can recycle them if you like.

I'm currently keeping all the ones my cats win, except Best of colour/top ten ribbons.

The Rosettes Cleo got came from Canada.
I will keep everything Cleo gets.
I do not care if she gets best of color because it does not matter in sphynx.
The Ribbons Tales got are very pretty.

Yeah I don't know about you but when I spend over $200 to go to a cat show I sort of want to keep what they win. We have a recycled ribbons show at the end of the year(my clubs run this) so I keep some of my ribbons for that rather then give them back to the club who donated them. Our bill for ribbons/rosettes/comets & sashes for our July show every year runs at about $1,500

Thanks for the link I will bring it up at our next meetings. I do know it was cheaper for us to order from the US than within Aus, I don't know if anyone looked to NZ.

We have 2 associations FASA and GCCFSA (kind of like how you have CFA, TICA etc.)

Under GCCF I joined the Foreign Shorthair Cat Club, since that's the sort of cats I have.

FASA I was elected onto the executive committee, so haven't joined any of our clubs as I am busy enough without extra meetings/emails from being in another club.

If I were you I'd join either a Sphynx club (if there's enough of them to have a club) or a shorthair club as that should also cover the Sphynx.
Ours meet once a month only, and each club usually has one or two shows a year.

I have not seen any sphynx clubs here.
post #42 of 58
You should talk to Nial and have him explain how TICA works. I can help in CFA or ACFA only.
post #43 of 58

That would be a good idea.
Should I start another post for that?
Where do I get the results from the CFA shows online?
I can not find anything on the CFA site.
post #44 of 58
Its not online. You have to subscribe to the CFA Almanac that has show results. But the only cats that are listed in finals are ones that have a registration number in the catalog.

Found that out after looking for Jackie's number when he got his 9th best kitten AB as a 4 month old - but his breeder did not send in for registration till after the show (he was "listed" in the catalog).

Check with Abymummy - she subscribes to the Almanac to keep track of things.

I hope you decide to keep showing Cleo, if judges were finaling her as an open then you should be able to grand her. Congratualtions on a good show!

Thanks,
I am going to keep showing Cleo.
My mentor talked to judge that gave her 2nd place and she loves Cleo.
My pan is to get another sphynx some time this year and show both of them.
post #57 of 58
Thanks for the pictures

As the resident rosette maker I can clarify a few things:

A complete CFA ring is 55 rosettes although some clubs will use ribbons instead of rosettes for the CH/PR to save money.

According to the show rules, you (the exhibitor) are entitled to keep the ribbons - however, the show can request you don't if there are insufficient numbers.

Tell you what, if you want winner ribbons that have been awarded to you, please just pm me and I will send them to you. They wont be the same quality that you won since I made them but at least you'll have the complete set of 6!

Thanks,
I will pm you.
I kept 1 Winners Ribbon so I still need 5 more.
