Starcall

Starcall was a convention held August 5-7, 1983 at the Rosslyn Westpark Hotel in Arlington, VA. It's not clear who the GoHs were. The convention listed Gordy Dickson, Hal Clement, Kelly Freas, Alexis Gilliland, James Gunn, Jack Chalker, and Somtow Sucharitkul was "guests' and no GoH. The convention was under the auspicious of the International Star Foundation, but run by Dick Preston who had been to hold a con for a decade. Starcall was previously scheduled for January 14-18, 1983 at another venue. The con seems to have been aimed to produce some sort of educational experience for younger fans and their teachers.
