StellarCon

(Did you mean Stellarcon '79 in Missouri?)

Regional convention held in North Carolina by UNC-Greensboro's Science Fiction and Fantasy Federation, with an emphasis on writing, gaming, and Star Trek guests.

Following a near disaster on StellarCon XV, the convention took a year off before moving off campus. Erik Olson advised the convention manager for that year, Jeff Smith, in how to handle the transition. During the off-campus years, sites in both Greensboro and High Point were used, with particularly long lines in High Point in a since-demolished hotel whose function space formed a six-story atrium, and in another Main Street hotel which was at various times a Radisson, Best Western, or unbranded.
