ADDITIONAL CERTIFICATE FOR OVERALL BEST IN SHOW WINNER
From 1st January 2017 an additional certificate will be given to the exhibitors, pedigree and household pet, for the overall BIS Winner, where offered, as voted for by Council in 2016. The exhibitor(s) of the overall BIS Pedigree and overall BIS Household Pet Exhibits, where offered, will receive an additional certificate at the level of award they are currently aiming for, or if they have achieved their current level at that show already, they will receive their first certificate for the next level. The certificate will be issued from the office once the level of entitlement has been established. This will be when the results of the show have been entered and cleared, which is normally between seven and ten days from the date of the show. The certificate will be issued by post from the office and signed by the office, and annotated to indicate the show at which it has been earned.
The Southern and South Western Birman Cat Club supports all colours, be they pedigrees or pets. The Club was formed in 1999 by a group of dedicated Birman lovers based in the South & South West of England. With the slogan - The Friendly Club Where Birman's Come First - the S&SWBCC quickly attracted World Wide membership.
The club holds a Championship Show annually which is open to members and non members, and has good support from both pedigree and non-pedigree cats. As a member of the club you will get reduced cost of entry to the show and a colour magazine twice a year.
