The following is taken from an announcement by Emma Hawkes. DUFF is a fan fund devoted to promoting and funding reciprocal visits between Australasia and North America. This year, the race was to elect a delegate to travel from down under to go to the Reno Worldcon.

“I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2011 DUFF race is Dave Cake.

This year we had a healthy number of votes – a total of 148 (with 39 from North America and the rest from Australasia).
For those who like the nitty gritty these are the first preferences:

Dave Cake – 80 (of which 69 are Australasian votes and 11 are from North America)
Paula McGrath – 57 (of which 33 are Australasian votes and 24 are from North America)

Hold Over – 1
No Preference – 9
Write In – 1

John Herz did a great job of advertising in North America and we got a reasonable lot of votes from North America for an off-year.

Congratulations to both candidates for running such a good race.”
