Tobes Launches Website and departs for Con Josť

Tue 27th Aug 2002

Tobes Launches Website and departs for Con JosťJersey fan Tobes Valois is well known in Irish fandom, as he regularly attends Octocon. On Wednesday he departs for Worldcon, Con Josť, which is taking place in California this weekend. Tobes will be representing European interests as this year's TAFF.

What is TAFF? The Trans Atlantic Fan Fund began many years ago when international travel was expensive. Fans would group together to send a representitive to a convention in another country. Eventually, these arangements were formalised and fan funds such as TAFF and DUFF (Down Under Fan Fund) were formed.

Of course transatlantic flights are a lot cheaper nowadays, but the tradition continues, and Tobes will be performing various official duties while at Worldcon.

LostCarPark is proud to be taking an active role in the trip by hosting the official Tobes website. The site will contain daily weblog reports from Tobes and other fans, as well as photos from the convention and a forum.

So tune in every day for your regular fix of Tobes!
