james's picture

GUFF is the Going Under (or Get Up and Over) Fan Fund which transports SF fans from Europe to Australasia (and vice versa). Nominations are now open for the southbound race, to transport a European fan (or fans) to Conflux [ ], the 2013 Australian National Convention (NatCon), to be held at the Rydges Capital Hill in Barton, Canberra, on 25th to 28th April 2013.

Depending on the length of trip they're able to make, the winner could also consider attending Swancon [ ] in Perth (29th March to 1st April) and/or Au Contraire 2 [ ] in Wellington (12th to 14th July). The winner will also be required to take over the administration of the fund for the next northbound and southbound races.

If you wish to stand, please contact us at the postal or email address below. You will then need three European and two Australasian nominators (who will each need to confirm their nominations), a 100-word platform to appear on the ballot, and a bond of £15/€20/AU$25 guaranteeing to attend the 2013 Natcon if you win. If you wish to stand and are unsure about how to go about getting any of these things, what the fund pays for, or the duties of a GUFF delegate and administrator, then feel free to contact us in confidence.

Nominations are open until Thursday 11th October 2012, and candidates will be announced on Saturday 23th October at Octocon [ ] in Dublin. Voting will then run until Monday 7th January 2013, with the winner announced at GenghisCon [ ] in Perth, Western Australia on 13th January.

Nominations should be sent to james [at] scifi [dot] ie or James Shields, 7 The Way, Highlands, Drogheda, IRELAND; or kylie_ding [at] hotmail [dot] com, or Kylie Ding, 80A Forrest Street, FREMANTLE WA 6160, AUSTRALIA.

Please disseminate widely.

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one?
Thanks a lot!

Hey are using Wordpress for your blog platform? I'm new to
the blog world but I'm trying to get started and
create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?

Any help would be really appreciated!

I had quite a lot of issues with my skin having black spots, redness, and various other things
that have just looked awful. I tried a lot of assorted
cosmetic makeup products that were meant to help with it but the
only cream I ever had to really work is Meladerm skin lightener.

Virtually all the other skin bleaching products and the like either
did little for me or did pretty much next to nothing. Meladerm pigment reducing complex
was really easy to utilize and one of the more affordable products on the market.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post
to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved
soon. Cheers
