  1. Forwarded this to a buncha people and also TruFen, Fmzfen, Southern Fandom Classic. Gee, a mere 47 or so years since I lost the very first DUFF race, to Lesleigh Luttrell…

  2. James Davis Nicoll: Um. (toe scuff). How would I indicate interest in a socially acceptable way?

    That’s a good start. Pretty much, round up a posse of nominators and follow the rest of the entry guidelines. If there’s any help or feedback I can give, email me.

  3. And of course, James, if you have any questions, you can email me. 🙂

    I WANT a race with lots of candidates. That’s GOOD for the Fund.
