Roxanne King has been around midwestern SF fandom for longer than she cares to admit. Treasurer for AASFA for about five years, she chaired MoonBase ConFusion in 2007. She founded and hosted the popular GT Suite at cons in Chicago and Detroit for about ten years. She has studiously avoided becoming involved in running Worldcons.

Fan GoH -- Tom Smith

For over two decades, Tom Smith, The World's Fastest Filker, has been breaking hearts, crippling minds, and dropping jaws across the country and around the world.

Pro GoH -- Patrick Rothfuss

Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin where long winters and lack of cable television brought about a love of reading and writing. His mother read to him as a child, and his father taught him to build things. If you are looking for the roots of his storytelling, look there.
