GUFF - Going Up and Over/Under Fan Fund

Dave Langford writes: "Since TAFF runs between Europe and NA, GUFF was dreamed up by Chris Priest in 1977 to complete the triangle and bring a first Down Under fan to Britain for the 1979 Worldcon. I know this because, without the tiresome business of actually having a free trip anywhere, Leigh Edmonds (in Australia) and I were the first administrators. John Foyster was the first winner, and it seemed rather a nice idea to continue.

"The name DUFF being already taken, Chris imagined GUFF as standing for Get Up-and-over Fan Fund, which didn't sound so brilliant when we came to do a southward trip. Various expedients like Going Under Fan Fund have been heard...."
