In 1993 the Association felt it was high time that it staged its first show . Our first Exemption Show was held in conjunction with the United Chinchilla Association and in 1996 the Associated held its first Sanction show, with new Show Managers, Ivor and Sheila Biggs. Two further Sanction Shows were held in 1997 and 1998. And then finally in 1999 our long-awairted first Championship show was held.
This was a really momentous event in the Association's history. The Show was opened by our then President, Mrs Jean Gillson and we had a splendid entry of top class Creams, Blue-Creams and household pets.
For the very first time some of of our beautiful cups and trophies were given out and to have them all displayed was a wonderful sight.
