(Did you mean Octacon, or a Irish, Denver, or Californian convention?)

This Octocon was a relaxacon held in October in Ohio from 1968 to 1997, for many years during the off-season in the summer-resort town of Sandusky, but in later years near Cincinnati. The con originated as a collaboration among fans in Detroit, Toledo, Cleveland and Cinti, but ultimately came under the auspices of the CFG.
