We're very happy to honor Cheshire Moon as our Filk GoHs, sponsored by the Phoenix Filk Circle.

Cheshire Moon is the two-time Pegasus award winning filk duo of Lizzie Crowe and Eric Coleman. Fanciful and riddled with mischief, old stories are made new, and old myths are given new faces in guitar and violin and voice.

We're very happy to honor Eric Wile as our Gaming GoH.
