- Mrs. Meister underlines her account processing increased by 40%

- Mrs. Frickel asks why fixed deposits had to be taken out in the end of 2009, after the due money from Russia had not come

- Mrs. Rudakova explained that transfers were not possible by private individuals in Russia, also not by PayPal. There was no opportunity for a personal handing over a money

- Mrs. Meistar contradicts. The WCF has received transfers as well as payments by Paypal from Russia

- Mrs. Rudakova denies this

  • Mrs. Melnikova said to spend 10000 € in 1 year in personnel expenditure is too much. The members should help to deminuish the personal costs. She proposed the Board to prepare a two-years financial plan

- Mrs. Hackmann explains that the fixed deposits are intended for eventualities, only Belarus has cost approx. 4000 € because of the Trademark, taxes must be paid; now we have a tax adviser. Assistants in the office receive 6 € hourly wage, that was financed by the Deutsche Edelkatze during the past 10 years. Mrs. Danisch receives 50 € monthly, thousands of copies and hundreds of e-mails are passed on, at the moment because of the GA. The WCF pays 247 € of rent, incl. additional costs

- Mrs. Pepermans suggests the production of a budget which must be sanctioned by the members. She lets herself explain post "travel expenses", asks for presentation of the balances. The balances are actually being presented during the GA

  • Mrs. Hackmann explains to the meeting to the attacks of Mrs. Rudakova with regard to disproportionately high fine against FAR, that Mrs. Rudakova herself has suggested to the Board of directors the fine instead of an exclusion, even still a higher one. FAR left the WCF, without paying.

Mrs. Rudakova mentions a bi number of fines, that she had handed out altogether in Essen. Mr. Okulov criticizes the statement as incorrect and discriminating. Neither POF nor Cat Land have paid in 2009 any fine. Mrs. Rudakova explains, that the info came from Mrs. Preiss.

- To the supposedly superfluous tax deliveries Mrs. Hackmann explains that the WCF is not of benefit to the public and taxable, hence.

- Mrs. Frickel underlines that the WCF as an in Germany incorporated society is subject to the German legislation and recommends that Russian members, who do not want to accept this, can to found their own organization. Mrs.Hackmann notes, that from the beginning Russian associations members of the WCF were present and they were namely contented ones. With the entry into an Organization one must be clear to himself about the necessity of the adaptation and the control knowledge.

- On Mrs. Pepermans question Mrs. Hackmann explained that the WCF is an international organization which is registered in Germany according to European legislation.

- Mrs. Hackmann would like to continue in the agenda. She supposes that Mrs. Rudakova’s aggressions against the Executive Board are founded personally to herself position, because of the results of the board meeting in January, 2009 and because Mrs.Rudakova failed when trying to campaign for WCF president in 2010.

- Mrs. Rudakova responded, her speech has not been personal, she represents the opinion of different Russian clubs. The misunderstandings with regard to the financial statement are cleared up on 12.08.10 in the WCF head office.

I Report of the webmaster for the period from the 08-2008 to the 07-2010

1. Translations
As you have noticed for sure, the Spanish and French websites are now completely translated.

Please allow me here some open words:

None of these pages is machine-translated or translated via a translation program.
Which qualifications do I have, and which sources and dictionaries do I use:


I had learned French long time ago, but did not practice it for a long time, thus it needed some practice again to reactivate my knowledge here.

I use the Oxford dictionary and dictionary of Merriam-Webster (about 3000 pages with French explanations of the terms) for translating general wording and phrases.

Concerning the standards, colour descriptions and genetics I use the medical dictionary of Pons.

Also some of my former French FIFe-colleagues have helped me here with the standards.

I also used the very detailed website of the LOOF as source for the phrasing.


I had to learn Spanish, because I worked as quality manager at the Telecom in Caracas, where I had to make the contracting and technical specifications in Spanish.

I use the Oxford dictionary and dictionary of Merriam-Webster.

Concerning the specific and anatomic terms in the standards I use the medical-anatomic dictionary of Pons.

Furthermore I also have the Spanish translation done by some Spanish breeder colleagues of my own website, which are more than 1000 pages
In total 2x200 webpages have been made.

Concerning the Russian translation, which is also not machine-made, the following judges colleagues have helped me:

Mrs. Litvina, Mrs. Lomakina, Mrs. Lyudvigova, who translated the colour descriptions and the show rules.

Concerning the articles and breed presentations Mrs. Shichkina and Mrs. Galaburda, both are native Russians, have helped me here.

All these ladies are still available, they work very accurately and fast.

It is a pleasure to have such a good co-operation with them.

Concerning the statutes, cattery rules, all the standards Mrs Klucniece helps me here. She is very accurate, and I enjoy to have such a co-operation with her.
Please allow me also here some open words:

Persons, who state that the Russian translations are machine-made, critisize here their own colleagues, which is not fair to them.

I want to thank all these persons very warmly, who help me with the Russian translations.
In total about 350 webpages have been made.
2. Forms, databases, automizing several working procedures
The application form for the show licenses has been programmed by me now in that way:

  • You can click now on a calendar to select the show dates,

  • You are offered now a judges-list of all judges, where you can copy the judge including country and qualification,

  • You only have to enter your club’s number, the rest is filled out automatically

  • You have now a list of cities in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine including the region available.

Generation of the show licenses is done now automatically.

There are now insert- and update-forms available including the same features as the application-form. Thus one can use an already published license, adapt and modify it for another show.
I also maintain the clubs-lists, judges-list and pupils-list.

Changes and new entries are only done, when I have the OK from the general secretary resp. from the chair of the judges commission.

I want to thank here in particular to Mrs Hungerecker for the very good co-operation.
I have implemented also now an online database of the cattery names registered with the WCF.

I kindly ask for your patience, if not yet all 3600 cattery names, which a got from the office in Essen in 03-2010, are registered in the database, because every single cattery name has to be checked first, if a „green slip“ exists. On advice of the Board only cattery names are permitted to be displayed, when a green slip existis.

Since 05-2010 I also receive now periodically a list of registered cattery names from the office in Essen.

At the moment there are about 4000 entries in the database, but I think another 2000 cattery names more will show up.

Statistics see annex 2.
3. Standards
The standqrd have been corrected by Mr Lamprecht, in the English version.

In total these were 5 x 72 standards, which I had to correct on the webpages, where I also made a Word-document in PDF-format, that each standard can be printed also.

I have also put all pages concerning the colour descriptions and standards, into a Word-document (2 parts) in the languages German, English, French and Spanish and have made the appropriate layout and formatting.

The webpages cannot be copied 1:1 into Word, even Microsoft promises that, because the table-formats are not transformed correctly.

All these documents are available at the judges commission in Word and PDF.
You will also find now the appropriate gene combinations at each colour description, and some explanations to this genetic model.
4. Best Cat of WCF
As you have seen for sure, I have implemented a test-contest in German, English and French on our website, that you can see how this contest will work.

The database and the necessary programming work, especially concerning the calculations of points, are already made by me.

I do hope that many of you will accept that proposal of the SC.

I wish you all a very successful general assembly

chair of the show commission


II Report on the activities of the Standards Information Service to the GA 2010

by Johan Lamprecht, on request from the Chairman, Mr Klaas van der Wijk and WCF General Secretary, Mrs Ortrun Wagner

During the General Assembly meeting of the WCF in August 2008, a new commission was proposed and elected, in order to assist the WCF Judges Commission and - Office in obtaining and maintaining the Standards of World Cat Congress and other major cat organization, including LOOF. This was necessary as WCF has, apart from the recognized breeds included in the Standard of Points, also accepted breeds, which include the breeds recognized by other major organizations.

The commission consists of Mr Klaas van der Wijk – Chairman (Netherlands), Maria Grazia Beltrami (Italy) and Johan Lamprecht (South Africa).

The standards of most organizations are available on their websites and were collected by myself mostly from these sources. A few others were augmented by the hard copies obtained from various sources. This included the scanning of the GCCF standards. All the standards were sent to the WCF Office and Judges commission during 2009 and are now available in electronic format. This also includes an interesting list of rare and sometimes non-existing breeds on the website “Messy beast”.

WCC Standards of Points updating for WCF purposes.

It was agreed during the informal meeting of the commission on 10 September 2008, attended by Mr Klaas van der Wijk and Johan Lamprecht, that the responsibility for updating the Standards of Points of WCC organizations should be divided as follow:

WCF Klaas van der Wijk Fife Klaas van der Wijk GCCF Klaas van der Wijk (NOK – non WCC, but included to be comprehensive – Klaas van der Wijk)

CFA Maria Grazia Beltrami TICA Maria Grazia Beltrami (Loof – non WCC, but included as there is a formal agreement with WCF)

ACF Johan Lamprecht CCCofA Johan Lamprecht SACC Johan Lamprecht NZCF Johan Lamprecht Waratah – (WCF)

Comments of further activities.

The WCF Standard was revised by the Judges Commission and the English translation adjusted by myself. The standards were then edited and formatted by Mrs Eveline Press, webmaster and made available in the various WCF languages in PDF format. It is now quite easy to print from the website.

The SACC standard was updated during 2010 and advised to the office and Judges Commission. The NZCF advised via WCC the General Secretary of the acceptance for registration of Polidactyl Maine Coons.

I am unsure of the activities of the other organizations, as I have not received any updates from the other committee members responsible for these.

The unfortunate cancellation of the agreement between LOOF and WCF has implications for the formal recognition of judges (and perhaps titles), but should not have an impact on the LOOF breeds as “accepted breeds” by WCF and these should remain as is.

I have been unable to obtain the name and contact details of any representative of any WCC organization in order to formalize the updating of Standards. The only option to obtain information is therefore the regular checking of websites and comparison with what was published before. This is a time-consuming and ineffective task and should not be necessary if there was formal co-operation. It is possible for any individual to gain this information from the internet. This leaves the question if the WCF needs a Standards Information Service in future, if the only practical source of information for this commission is the internet, which is freely available to any interested person.
