JETS logoMy recovery from Eastercon has been delayed by my role as one of the three bossy women (the others being Flick and Claire Fishlifter) who comprise the League of Fan Funds. We agreed to help Interaction give away money by administering JETS, the Japanese Expeditionary Travel Scholarship; a one off fan fund to send a European fan to Japan for the 2007 Worldcon. JETS has been won by Chris O'Shea, and he'll send you a postcard if you ask nicely. The accumulated fund, including the original money from Interaction, the voting fees, and a little of the money we raised at Eastercon, should be plenty for a jolly trip. Congratulations to Chris, and I think all the administrators are going to have a little lie down now. Memo: we have not yet quite ironed out the niggles involved in allowing electronic voting. Turns out it's just about as true for fan funds as it is for governments.
