Croggled. And oh, so happy.

I love road trips. The good ones are magical and Monday's was remarkably comfortable topped with a gallon and more of awesome sauce. I'll forego the 4-part harmony on that as I'm taking another one in just under 8 hours and need to get real sleep before then.

Monday afternoon while driving across Ohio, I received a thoroughly surprising phone call from Rich Coad. Shortly after that (and directly following from it), Rob Jackson posted the following to the fmzfen email list and elsewhere:

As Corflu Fifty administrators, Rich Coad and I are delighted to announce that Geri Sullivan has accepted the group’s nomination to travel to Tynecon III: The Corflu in Newcastle in March next year. (She not only said yes, but Rich says she said "Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, oh my god, yes!”) The con committee have already decided she will be given free membership of the convention, but other details will be announced later.

Corflu Fifty members are invited to support the fund in the usual way – $25 or £15, or whatever extra you would like to give - and those who are not members of the Corflu Fifty are cordially invited either to join (so you can help choose future nominees, of course), or to contribute to support Geri’s trip this coming year. If you would like to join or contribute, please get in touch with Rich or me for details.

Mail checks made out to Rich Coad, at 2132 Berkeley Drive, Santa Rosa, CA 95401; or PayPal to richcoad at gmail dot com>. (I think if you say it's a gift and personal there is no fee).

For UK contributions, either by old-fashioned cheque posted to me at Chinthay, Nightingale Lane, Hambrook, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 8UH, or by PayPal to jacksonshambrook at uwclub dot net, (friends and family, I think you call it).


Past Corflu Fifty recipients include Steve & Elaine Stiles, Curt Phillips, Earl Kemp, Dave Hicks, Shelby Vick, Rob Hansen,and Dan & Lynn Steffan. I delighted and charmed to be in their company.

Much burbling to follow. Burbling, plots, and plans. Because Corflu. In the UK.

Yowser.

Congratulations! Well done, all around. I will take this as a reminder that I ought to join the Corflu 50 myself. I do keep meaning to.
