(Did you mean the Sacred Liquid?)

An annual gathering of fanzine fans, founded by Lucy Huntzinger, Allyn Cadogan, Shay Barsabe and Terry Floyd in 1984. It is usually in the late winter or early spring. The con's location is decided via a bid process.

While there is a program, relaxed conversation is the main attraction. Things are not taken seriously, for example, the GoH (or CGoH) name is drawn from a hat. The annual FAAn Awards are presented at Corflu.

Corflu Fifty[edit]

A group of fans who jointly pay for some worthy person to attend Corflu. The administrators are Rob Jackson and Rich Coad. Coad describes how it was created:

This idea grew out of the successful funds to bring Bruce Gillespie and William Breiding to Corflu Titanium and to bring Harry Bell to Corflu Quire. At Corflu Quire, additional names were mentioned for fans we would like to see at Corflu but who are unable to attend for a variety of reasons. Subsequently, Andy Porter came up with the eminently sensible idea of gathering a group of 50 fans, each willing to donate $25 a year (or, to include British fans, £15) to a fund for the express purpose of defraying most, if not all, transportation and lodging expense.

The Corflu Fifty’s recipients are chosen through discussion on the group’s e-list.
