James Shields is selected as the GUFF delegate for 2010 and will attend Aussiecon4 in Melbourne, 2-6th September, Aussiecon4
Thank you to James Shields and Douglas Spencer for standing and making it such a lovely race to administer. Many people spoke about how difficult it was to choose between the candidates which I think is shown in the number of no preference votes. Thanks are due to my co-administrators, Sue Ann Barber and Trevor Clark, for their efficient delivery of the voting numbers in Australia. I'd also like to thank the generous voters as well as people who gave donations without a vote which are very much appreciated. The current status of the fund including income from voting is viewable at the bottom of this page.
The above button is also available for those of you who may just want to donate directly to GUFF.
On to other business. Below is a summary of expenditure during my trip and also the current status of the fund.
|Received from previous administrator||2368||£||2368||£|

|Correction - conversion artefacts*||0.06||£|
|Total remaining in UK fund after the trip||802.54||£|
*Total cost does not include misc. amounts from other sources. The hotel and some other costs were dealt with by the Australian side of the fund and also my parents gave me approx. £500 spending money to cover other costs. Also not included are many generous donations from Australian fans in the form of transport, dinner etc.
Despite intending to do so quite early on I only opened the dedicated GUFF account in November of 2008. As a result the exact dates of various cheques received are missing but bookkeeping will be more accurate from now on. At all times the League of Fan Funds have been kept informed of the status of the fund and also of the costs associated with my trip.
As the current winner, James Shields, is in Ireland and the fund and account are in pounds I am continuing to act as treasurer for the fund.
All amounts are in UK pounds.
