CUFF Winner

Travers Milo has been announced as the CUFF (Canadian Unity Fan Fund) delegate to Canvention 34 in Vancouver, which will be held concurrently with VCON 39 the weekend of October 3-5. Because Milo was unopposed, CUFF raised no money during the selection process and the current administrators are requesting donations via Cash, Cheque, PayPal, or email to debra.yeung@gmail.com in order to help fund Milo’s delegate’s trip.
