GSCC Entries Secretary and Point Scorer
The Greater Sydney Cavy Club entries secretary requires entry forms to be received the Friday before show day, no later than 7 pm. Currently, there is no late entry fee however, we do ask that you email Sallyanne should you be experiencing any difficulties.
Entries can be emailed directly to Sallyanne or posted to our club secretary. Please consider the delivery times when posting. Payment can be made by direct deposit prior to show day or with cash or cheque on the day.
Please fill out your form as accurately as possible, clearly listing the cavy's stud prefix, name, date of birth, breed class, colour if required and the age section it will compete in ie:
cavies aged 12 months or more are listed as A = Boar, B = Sow,
cavies aged 9-12 months are listed as I = Intermediate,
cavies aged 6-9 months are listed as C = Juniors and lastly
cavies aged 3-6 months are listed as D = Babies.
Cavies under 3 months of age are not permitted to be shown.
Preparing your cavies to look their best is a very important part of showing. Remove guard hairs, wash and dry your cavies making sure to trim those nails and clean their feet. Boars will also need their grease glands cleaned.
If you are unsure or need advice please ask! Our committee and members are always happy to help and often have many ideas and suggestions from their own experiences.
On the day of the show, you will need to bring a purpose-built show board. These are a requirement for you to show your cavy. They can be purchased on the day of the show from our Pet Manager, Yasmin Cassidy or alternatively, you can make your own with a personal statement of style!
