By Rob Jackson: As Corflu Fifty administrators, Rich Coad and I are delighted to announce that Grant Canfield has accepted the group’s nomination to travel to Chiflu, the 33rd Corflu, which is being held in Chicago in May next year. Grant is a legendary and much admired fanzine cartoonist who was really prolific in the 70s and 80s, contributing to many fanzines, notably respected fannish fanzines such as Mota. He is a really nice guy who has remained in touch in a low-key way, and is becoming just a bit more active once again.
Corflu Fifty members are encouraged 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 Grant’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 firstname.lastname@example.org (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, Rob Jackson, at Chinthay, Nightingale Lane, Hambrook, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 8UH, or by PayPal to email@example.com, (friends and family, I think you call it).
