A convention held in Calgary, AB starting in 1984 and was sponsored by the Calgary & Area Fandom Enhancement Society. It appears to have died when Con-Version 27 was cancelled and then in September 2011, Con-Version 28 was also cancelled.

It hosted the judging for the Robyn Herrington Memorial Short Story Competition.
