No 2019 Race

The Down Under Fan Fund, currently administered by Paul Weimer and Marlee Jane Ward, announce that there will be No 2019 delegate

2019 is an awkward year for a Down Under Fan Fund race from the US to Australasia given that 2020 is slated to be Worldcon in New Zealand, and a 2020 race from Australasia to North America is not likely to have the time and energy given that Worldcon. As a result, there will be no race in 2019. However, there will be a race for 2020, with the expectation that the 2020 DUFF delegate will travel from North America to attend Worldcon in Wellington, New Zealand, and other fannish events and meetings as possible in the spirit and mission of the Down Under Fan Fund.
