Tasmania hosted the National show again, in Hobart, and the Supreme Exhibit was, for the first time, a Norwegian Forest Cat, Ch. Snowstars Xavier. Again, there were record–breaking crowds at the show. There were no changes to the officer–bearer positions. Secretary Nell Evans was the recipient of the third ACF Distinguished Service Award. Judge training rules were amended to allow already–licensed ACF panel judges to officiate interstate as a junior judge for their new group, under the supervision of a local tutor judge. The Siberian standard was amended to bring it in line with that of FIFe. The Scottish Longhair was recognised, as was the Tonkinese in pointed and “solid” patterns.
