I have transferred the fund’s remaining balance to Paul Weimer who is now the North American DUFF delegate and administrator. He will be taking over this site and its administration as the 41st winner of the Down Under Fan Fund.
My profound gratitude to Marty Cantor who acted as fund treasurer for many years before I stepped up as acting administrator in May 2015 after Juanita Colman was unable to fulfill her commitment. He ensured the fund’s continuing ability to function in spite of a few continuity glitches. Thanks also to my Down Under counterpart Julian Warner who stepped in for Bill Wright and administered last year’s race with the help of Justin Ackroyd. Most of all, thank you to everyone around the world who donated, bid, voted, promoted and auctioned on DUFF’s behalf. This fund is a group effort. Well done, group!
