  1. Glad to hear this! I trust Marcin will have a grand time and will send a portion of his trip report to
    my fanzine Askance . Just a thought.

  2. I’m delighted that Marcin won and gutted that Steve and Alice didn’t. Warm congratulations to Marcin. You’ll love it down under, it’s a fantastic continent with fantastic fans. Make the trip as long as it’s possible for you, you will never regret that.

  3. Warm congratulations to Marcin Klak! European fandom is coming strong. Marcin, also known as “the Fandom rover” has been all over Europe at sf-conventions and reported on them in his blog. He is an all around pleasant and in matters of sf-fandom enthusing person to encounter. I believe he is a fan that you will be delighted to meet in Melbourne, Australia. My commiserations to Steve and Alice, who I know were equally pleasant candidates. We so hope you won’t Brexit us (European fandom).
