NSW CFA October Updates & New Catching Up

1.  New Probationary Longhair  (Groups 1) Judges
It is with much pleasure that I announce that after satisfactory completion of a Longhair Judges Training course lasting almost 2 years that the Management Committee has granted Probationary Longhair Judge status to Sandra Dukes, Fiona Mangan and Christine Tomlinson.  These new judges will now undertake 10 probationary judging assignments during the next 2 years before being granted full judge status.  May I on behalf of all members offer them our heartiest congratulations, and ask our affiliates to offer these new judges probationary assignments at their future shows.
I sincerely thank the Examination Panel (Wendy Hamilton, Debbie Cameron and Val Hurry) and many other judges and breeders for their untiring efforts in ensuring a successful outcome for the association.
