Detroit in '85
A bid to run the 1985 NASFiC (opposite Aussiecon 2) as "Detention II" in a single hotel in Detroit, MI or Dearborn, MI. (For a time, the committee debated as to whether it was a "Detroit" bid of a "Dearborn" bid.
It was run by a coalition of fans from Detroit, Ann Arbor, and Ypsilanti and spearheaded by Steve Simmons and Dan Story. Other members of the bid committee included Jean Barnard, Tara Edwards, Tom Barber, Carol Lynn, Nancy Tucker, Howard DeVore, Brian Earl Brown, Denice Brown, Roger Sims, Fred Prophet, and George Laskowski, several of whom resigned before the vote.
It was organized by the Southern Michigan Organization of Fans (SMOofF), and tangled up in the AASFA Wars. (It also seems to have been called the Southeast Michigan Organization of Fans.)
