If Only They'd Put Off the TAFF Decision For a Week

Per this message, and another message I can't quote because it is friends-locked, the UK SMOF community appears to have managed to organize a "replacement" 2007 Eastercon, to be named "Contemplation", with more details (like a site!) to be announced soon. This organization appears to have been officially "blessed" by Convoy, the previously-selected committee, who have effectively handed over the Eastercon franchise to Contemplation. From my remote perch out here in California, this sounds like it deals with the "legitimacy" issues, at least as long as nobody rises up as a rival claimant to the franchise, I suppose.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the TAFF race could have been to send someone to this "replacement" Eastercon just as much as the originally-scheduled one, even if Contemplation turns out to be very relaxed. Still, I've only been a TAFF voter, not an administrator or candidate, and am almost certainly not completely in touch with all of the fannish undercurrents involved. And both administrators are well-respected fans not known for half-cocked decisions.

Chris for TAFF anyway, next chance he gets!
