Aline Noel-Garel Named Judge of the Year

Another show season ended April 30th…and another judge has been recognized as Judge of the Year! Congratulations to Aline Noel-Garel who was named Judge of the Year for 2009-2010 by TICA at the Annual Awards Banquet last weekend in Santa Clara, CA.

Aline, who is from Quebec, Canada, became a judge in 1988. But she was highly involved in the cat fancy and helped introduce the Sphynx not only to the United States, but to get it recognized as an approved championship breed. Now every Sphynx that enters a show hall can say thank you to Aline for helping them get the chance to compete for titles and regional and international awards! Today the Sphynx is one of the top ten favorite breeds of cats!

Vickie Fisher, president of TICA said that even before becoming a TICA judge, Aline has championed TICA. To Vickie, there is no finer person than Aline that she wants to represent TICA in countries around the world.

Aline is the┬áthirtieth judge to be named Judge of the Year. Since 1980, TICA’s members have voted for the judge that deserves the distinguished title of Judge of the Year in recognition of their hard work during the previous show season
