PAY AT THE DOOR?
Yes, you can pay at the door. But it'll cost you $25 extra!
All entries not paid by 10 PM on Sunday, July 24, 2022 are subject to a $25 late fee
.

Why? Because collecting entry fees at the door really slows down the check-in process. Also, the club really needs to collect funds up front: most of our expenses must be paid before the show starts.


(The fine print: Any exhibitor whose payment has not been received for any reason by 10 pm, Sunday, July 24, 2022 will be assessed a $25.00 late fee. Payment at the door will be at the sole discretion of the Entry Clerk, will be subject to the $25.00 late fee, and MUST be paid in cash. No exceptions!)  
 
 
ENTER THE SHOW

To enter your cat in the show, submit the following to the entry clerk. (For closing dates, see the CLOSING DATES box in the left column.)   

  • A completed Summary Sheet.
  • A completed entry form for each cat you're entering.
  • Payment for the amount owed. All payment must be in US dollars, and must be received no later than 10 PM on the closing date, Sunday, July 24, 2022.

If you are new to showing cats, you might want to check out our New Exhibitors' page.

IMPORTANT: At the time of entry, you must agree to follow all health & safety rules in effect for this event, as well as all TICA rules and all club rules. Anyone not complying with these rules will be required to leave the show without refund of any monies paid.

PAYMENT

IMPORTANT: Entering the show constitutes a commitment to pay your show fees! The only situation in which you would not owe for your show fees would be if the show is cancelled.

  • We accept credit card payments via PayPal.
  • We also accept checks or money orders. Please make checks payable to The Maine Event, and mail to our treasurer at the address listed on our contact page.

To Enter Online

  1. To enter online, please submit a summary sheet via this website.
  2. You must also enter each of your entries, including any non-competing (sale/exhibition) cats you will be bringing to the show.
  3. Please send your payment by no later than 10 PM on Sunday, July 24, 2022. All late payments will be assessed a $25 fee.

(If you have any problems with the online entry process, please email the entry clerk at entryclerk@maineevent.org.)


To Email Your Entry

It's better to use our Summary Sheet and entry forms than to simply send your entry information in an email. (Most folks who send in "email entries" end up inadvertently omitting something important.) If you use the online forms, you'll be prompted for all the information required.

If for some reason you can't get our online entry forms to work, then go ahead and enter via email. To do this, send an email containing the necessary information to the entry clerk at entryclerk@maineevent.org. Please be sure to include all the information requested on the Summary Sheet, as well as complete entry information for each cat.

  • Please send your payment by no later than 10 PM on Sunday, July 24, 2022. All late payments will be assessed a $25 fee.

To phone in your entry

You can enter by telephone. However, there is a $5 per entry charge for phone entries. To enter by phone, call the entry clerk.

  • Please send your payment by no later than 10 PM on Sunday, July 24, 2022. All late payments will be assessed a $25 fee.


To enter via snail mail

Mail a printed summary sheet, entry forms, and a signed copy of our Health Rules document to the entry clerk.
