SMOFCon Scholarships Announced

CanSMOF Inc. is pleased to announce the award of two scholarships to attend SMOFCon 31 in Toronto this coming December. Jenni Merrifield of Port Moody, British Columbia and Pablo M.A Vazquez III of Austin, Texas will each receive C$500 to help defray the cost of attending SMOFCon.

"Selecting only two scholarship recipients out of the field of applicants was a challenge," according to CanSMOF Scholarship Committee member Kevin Standlee, who evaluated applications along with Robbie Bourget and Terry Fong. "There were many worthy applicants, and I'm sorry we could only pick two of them for the grants to go to Toronto. I hope Jenni and Pablo both learn things and help share their knowledge and experience with the other members of SMOFCon."

"SMOF" stands for "Secret Masters of Fandom," a humourous term for people who organize science fiction and fantasy conventions. SMOFCon is the annual convention about organizing science fiction and fantasy conventions. It has been held in different cities around the world, usually in early December, since 1984. The site of each SMOFCon is determined by the members of the previous year's event.

SMOFCon 31 will be in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, December 6-8, 2013. For information about this year's SMOFCon, see For information about SMOFCon in general, see
