Time for a committee vote, I think!

Congratulations, Phil. Here's to the BFS building on it's long history in the Fantasy (fantasy and horror) genre.

Ta! Looking forward to it!

Thank you, Peter!

I've been overwhelmed by the messages of support I've been getting, both publicly and privately. I think we all know it can be a challenging role and I'll do my very best to do it justice for past, present and all future members of the BFS.

Congrats, Phil!  :)

I'm a past member (as, I think, you know), and I'd be very happy to come back to the fold and rejoin when I see some real changes for the better going on in the BFS. Please, keep us updated (former members as well as existing members) as to how it's going and what's going on. Regular news updates on the website and/or forum would be really useful so that we can all be kept "in the loop". Good luck!

Does Phil's appointment to the post mean we now have a permanent "acting" chair?  ;)

Not quite permanent, but he's the fully-fledged chair till the next AGM, when the chair always has to step down and stand for re-election. I did call myself the acting chair when I took over in 2010, but that was a bit different, I was just helping out while the former chair ran FantasyCon, and just tried to keep things going as they'd been announced rather than applying any of my own policies.

I was making a reference to what Phil does in real life, Stephen. :D

Welcome aboard good captain,

Good luck with the new role Phil,

I'm just trying to renew at the moment but by cheque, some of us are still in the paper age,

Cheers,


Wayne.
