    2010 PLATFORMS

    JEFFREY BOMAN Montreal, PQ Canada

    I am involved in several aspects of fandom: I was part of the concom for Con*Cept, Montreal, Canadas SF convention from 1993 to 1999. Our 1997 convention won the Prix Aurora. Currently, Im a fanzine editor and publisher, having 20 years of APA-zine publishing under my belt. My fanzine (The Original Universe) won a 2009 Prix Aurora in the Fan Experience (Fanzine) category. Im also a regular letterhack for 5 zines, and a published RPG author. Canada is the host for the 2010 Winter Olympics. A Canadian DUFF delegate this year would be greatly symbolic.

    Nominators: Australasia: Cath Ortlieb, LynC; North America: Chris Garcia, Yvonne Penney and Cathy Palmer-Lister.

    TERRY FONG Montreal, PQ Canada and JANNIE SHEA Tulsa, OK USA

    From the team that brought Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman to Worldcon, a DUFF bid of global proportions! Twice the coverage! Long-time fans, each in fandom almost 30 years (ghods!). Canadian. Southerner. Readers. Geeks. Conrunners (sshhhhhhh!!!!!) Officers of various SF/F groups. Always happy to help. (Just ask!) Registration. Treasury. Publications. Logistics. Art Show. Programming. Events. ASFA. Cat-herding. Almost done it all. We've worked conventions on 3 continents, with wide organizational experience in the international arena and non-profits, from under 100 to 5,000+ memberships. We desperately want to extend our minion fan networks into Australasia. Y'all vote for us, eh.

    Nominators: Australasia: John Maizel, Shaun Tan; North America: Ian Stockdale, Todd and Joni Dashoff and Ren Walling.

    JOHN HERTZ Los Angeles, CA USA

    By little short of a miracle, there will indeed be South Gate (or Southgate) again in 2010, namely Aussiecon 4, as I reported with awe in File 770 153. Being a Rick Sneary fan (with June & Len Moffatt, I co-edited his memorial zine Button-Tack), Id love to attend. Id love to see people I know from fanzines, and anyone else within reach. Are the local wines and beers better than whats shipped to the U.S.? I ate natt in Japan, am I up to Vegemite? Will you help me find out?

    Nominators: Australasia: Robin Johnson, Janice Gelb; North America: Peggy Rae Sapienza, Mike Glyer and Randy Byers.


    After being in fandom for over 30 years (yes, it has been that long), attending and working conventions, mostly as the Volunteer Coordinator, I thought Id try for the coveted role of being your DUFF Delegate. When the idea came up at Denvention 3 that I might actually be able to qualify, the thought was mind boggling. Me??? I am just your ordinary fan who likes to work conventions, meet new people and enjoy traveling. So, with the encouragement of friends (who are active fans), I am now entering my name officially into nomination. I promise to give you a travel itinerary (in-depth), and to work hard and promote DUFF for my term.

    Nominators: Australasia: Julian Warner, Alan Stewart; North America: Elaine Brennan, Pat and Roger Sims and Jim Mann.

    JOHN PURCELL College Station, TX USA

    Why DUFF? Well, Ive been knocking around about fandom since first encountering it in 1973 at Minicon #7 (Minneapolis 1n 73!), attending conventions, and publishing fanzines since the mid-1970s on through the 1980s (This House, Ennul, Bangweulu). My current zine is the e-zine Askance, hosted at (Bill Burns is my hero). Besides attending many cons, Ive worked on them, too (Im a sucker for a free bheer). Also Oh heck with it. My real reason for standing for DUFF is to prove once and for all to Janine Stinson that I DO NOT look like Kim Stanley Robinson.

    Nominators: Australasia: Bruce Gillespie, Bill Wright; North America: Arnie and Joyce Katz, Guy H Lillian III and Lloyd Penney.
