Doc Weir Award Acceptance
Alison Scott

Jamie said: ‘Congratulations. I virtually hand this trophy to you.’

And I am virtually delighted. Oh, you guys. Oh, this is such a thrill. Thank you so much.

I want to quote briefly from the Doc Weir page on Bill Burns’s website. As you know, Bill Burns is the person who’s been to more Eastercons in a continuous row than any other, but decided not to come to this one.

The Doc Weir page says this:

This award goes to ‘Unsung Heroes’. The little people who work behind the scenes and maybe don’t get a lot of public recognition.


I’m very flattered and I’m very grateful, but I’m not that person.

Thank you anyway. I appreciate it. I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth.

Thank you so much, I really do appreciate it.

There are an awful lot of people who’ve worked incredibly hard this weekend in ways they may not have expected, and definitely weren’t what they signed up for when they recruited. I want to dedicate this award to you. Thank you all so very much for your work this weekend.
