    2011 PLATFORMS

    DAVID CAKE

    Im gregarious, amiable, and mostly harmless. In more than 20 years in fandom, Ive worked a lot of conventions (and chaired one), edited 11 issues of a small-press magazine called Borderlands, drunk a lot of beer, DJd several convention dances, chaired a lot of meetings, been made a life member of my University SF club, been nominated for a fanwriting Ditmar, and been to (and hosted) a lot of parties. I read books, comics, fanzines, and far too many blogs. I know a lot of odd and pointless facts.

    If elected I promise to be on panels, go to a lot of parties, swap fannish stories, and write a rambling trip report afterwards. And I am prepared not to bring my theremin.

    There is a lot more to know about me, some of which can be found at www.difference.com.au/fandom.

    Nominators:
    North America nominators: Randy Byers, Colin Hinz
    Australia New Zealand nominators: Sue Ann Barber, Damien Warman, Grant Watson.

    PAULA MCGRATH

    My name is Paula McGrath and I would be honoured to run for DUFF this year.

    I became involved in fandom in 1994 by joining the MSFC. I was involved in organising the Hugo Award Ceremony at Aussiecon 3. I have been on the MSFC committee and was on the Convergence 2002 Natcon committee. I helped run the dealers room at Aussiecon 4, and have just signed on to edit Ethel the Aardvark, the MSFC club newsletter.

    I would love to be this years DUFF delegate and promise to be a good ambassador for Australian fans. I promise to work hard for the fundraising and promote Australian fandom to the US fans.

    Nominators:
    North America nominators: Sue & Steve Francis, Melissa Morman
    Australia New Zealand nominators: Perry Middlemiss, Rose Mitchell, Julian Warner.
