Quoting René Walling <cybernetic.nomad at gmail.com>:
>> Hi there,
>> Sorry for the delay. I expected to have this in earlier, but I
>> spent six hours chatting online with my boyfriend tonight and we
>> only signed off about 20 minutes ago. Oops.
>> Since our last update, the Events Division have been busy
>> recruiting directors for the various events that will be taking
>> place at Anticipation. Unfortuately, our original Masquerade
>> Directors, Barb Schofield and Martin Miller have had to step down
>> from their positions; however, we have been fortunate in that we
>> have been able to replace them with Byron Connell. Byron is an
>> experienced Masquerade Director, and has been hard at work.
>> Elsewhere in this Progress Report, you will find information on how
>> to participate in the Masquerade.
>> We have also recruited Jannie Shea to be our liaison to ASFA for
>> the Chesley Awards. The Chesley Awards are presented for
>> achievement in SF and fantasy art. You will find information about
>> the Chesleys elsewhere in this Progress Report.
>> Liana Kerzner has joined us in the capacity of the director of the
>> Prix Aurora Awards. The Auroras are the Canadian equivalent of the
>> Hugo Awards, and are presented for fiction and fan activity. Liana
>> is best known as the co-host of "Ed's Night Party", a long-running
>> late-night television talk show which aired in Canada on CITY-TV
>> and its affiliated channels. Liana previously acted as MC of the
>> Prix Aurora Awards at Keycon 25, the 2008 Canvention in Winnipeg,
>> Manitoba, and was the co-host of the inaugural Constellation
>> Awards, at Polaris 21 in Toronto, Ontario.
>> We are also in discussions about presenting the Prix Boréal (for
>> French-Canadian SF/fantasy), and the two juried prizes known as the
>> Jacques Brossard (for adult SF in French) and the Prix Jeunesse
>> des Univers Parallèles (for children's SF in French). Further
>> information will be posted to the website when it becomes available.
>> And finally, we have put together a Request For Proposals for
>> dances. Are you a rocking DJ who knows how to get the floor moving?
>> Do you have your finger on the pulse of the fannish dance groove?
>> Then submit a bid and tell us about yourself and your DJ
>> experience, and you may get your chance to move our feet! Email us
>> at events at anticipationsf.ca or see our website at [URL here] for
>> more information!
>> Note that I've said [URL here] for info about the dance RFP. Andrew
>> gave me some feedback this evening which I haven't yet looked at,
>> but assuming that there are no tweaks or only minor tweaks
>> required, I'll be sending it for translation and then for upload
>> immediately. Hopefully we'll be able to have it up before the PR is
>> finished being edited; if not, just remove the "at [URL here]" bit
>> from that final paragraph.
>> "Nature abhors a vacuum, which explains why drama appears where
>> communication is lacking."
