Veterans of the Northwest 2005

For the 2004-2005 show season, the Northwest Region became the first region to offer awards for the veteran's class.   This class is for CFA registered cats that are 7 years or older.  They competed strictly in the veteran's class - not Championship or Premiership.

Only shows held within the region were counted for scoring purposes, and 6 shows were scored for the 2004-05 season.   Scoring was done in the same way that the Northwest Region scores Household Pets.  Points are calculated in the same way they are for any other class - ie Best Veteran gets points equal to the number of entered cats less one, 2nd Best gets 95% of that amount, etc.  

There were several of the shows where the Veteran's class had 10-15 veterans present and competing – and the judges were very appreciative of the high quality they saw!   Many of the veteran's were previous Regional Winners, DMs, etc.

The final winners for the year are:
