A fan fund organized in 1977 to send Bob Tucker to the 1979 Worldcon if Britain in '79 won (it did, and ran Seacon '79) or the 1979 Eastercon if it lost. Organizers included Gail Burnick and Eric Bentcliffe. Ben Zuhl produced The Deportation Papers to raise funds for it.

Gale Burnick produced a one-shot fanzine in support of the fan fund. It had a cover by Joan Hanke-Woods, article headings by Steve Stiles, and articles by Mark Aronson, Howard Waldrop, Terry Hughes and others.
