Honoring Denny Dayton

Home

The 10th Anniversary of the IRC will be devoted to paying tribute to Denny Dayton, who with his wife Laura, fought so hard to establish the Ragdolls in ALL the cat associations worldwide. Denny and Laura founded the Ragdoll Fanciers Club that would later be called the Ragdoll Fanciers Club International. They also started the publishing of what we now call the Ragdoll World in 1975. This is the 40th Anniversary of the club and the newsletter.

As many of you may know Denny Dayton was born in Portland, Oregon and many of his relatives still live there. Denny has been asking if it would be possible to hold a huge Ragdoll show in Portland, Oregon, and on January 28-31, 2016 his dream will come true. Denny still has many relatives living in the Portland area, and he has wanted a show where all his relatives could come and see the beautiful Ragdolls that he and Laura had given so much of their lives to get accepted in all the cat associations. We would like to get as many Ragdolls in the show as possible, so start making your plans now. If his health holds up he has promised to be there to meet and greet the Ragdoll community.

The 10th Anniversary of the IRC will be held in Portland, Oregon on January 28-31, 2016, and the host club will be the “The New Culture Club”.  The Show Manager will be Pamela Barrett, a well known TICA judge. This will be an all in one show as the show hall is within the hotel. The temperature in Portland for the 2015 show was in the mid 50’s.

The Hotel and Show Hall will be at the “Airport Holiday Inn” which is located right at the Portland International airport, so there will be no need to rent a car. This is a fabulous hotel located right at the airport. Many of the attractions of the Rose City are right at your finger tips, you are only 2 minutes from the airport MAX Light Rail. You can ride it to downtown Portland in just minutes. You may want to take advantage of the tax-free shopping at Cascade Station which is just minutes away and the hotel shuttle will gladly take you to both the Cascade Station and the MAX Light Rail station at the Cascade Station.
