>> 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.
>> Lance
>> "Nature abhors a vacuum, which explains why drama appears where
