The 1998 Europe to North America TAFF Race was launched on 1st November 1997.
So for the brief period 1st November to 13th December 1997, TWO TAFF races will be running concurrently.
Chris Bell, Bridget 'Bug' Hardcastle and Maureen Kincaid Speller are vying for the right to represent Europe at the 1998 World SF Convention, Bucconeer, in Baltimore in August 1998. Voting closes on this westward bound race on the 25th April 1997.
Meanwhile, Victor M Gonzalez, Ulrika O'Brien, Vicki Rosenzweig and Tom Sadler, are competing to represent North America at the British National sf convention, Intuition, in Manchester at Easter in 1998. (Voting closes for this eastward bound race on 13th December 1997 -- so vote soon!)
Ballots for both races are available from Martin Tudor, 24 Ravensbourne Grove, Willenhall, West Midlands, WV13 1 HX, from Dan Steffan, 3804 South 9th Street, Arlington, Virginia 22204, USA), or from this site -- http://www.dcs.gla.uk/SF-Archives/Taff/ -- courtesy of Dave Langford (to whom many thanks!).
