The outdoor pool was a big attraction of the North Park Plaza in Sharonville.

Midwestcon 7 was a relaxacon held May 24–27, 1956, at the North Plaza Motel in Sharonville, OH. Attendance seems to have been around 110 on a very rainy weekend with 3 inches overall.

(The turnout was stellar, including P. Schuyler Miller, Robert Bloch, Larry Shaw, Dave Kyle, Harlan Ellison, Bob Silverberg, Randall Garrett, E. E. Smith, Edmond Hamilton, Marty Greenberg, Lloyd Eshbach, Frank Robinson, Don Ford, Howard DeVore, Don Ford, Margaret Ford, Steve Schultheis, Mark Schulzinger, George Raybin, Jim Harmon, Tom Scortia, Bob Madle, Lynn Hickman, Lou Tabakow, and Doc Barrett. (They don't make relaxacons like they used to!)

See Fantasy Times 249 (June 1956, p. 2) for a long con-report by Donald E. Ford.
