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 firstname.lastname@example.org in order to help fund Milo’s delegate’s trip.
The first Faned Awards, a Canadian award presented for fanzine activity, were presented on October 2 at VCON 36 in Vancouver, Canada by R. Graeme Cameron. Each winner will receive the Faned, a sculpture created by Lawrence Prime and a certificate designed by Taral Wayne. The first year’s awards were entirely selected by Cameron, who hopes to garner peer input in future years.
