(For other Octocons, see Octocon (Disambiguation).)
Octocon was a relaxacon held in October in Ohio from 1957 to 2002, for many years during the off-season in the summer-resort town of Sandusky, but in later years near Cincinnati. Sandusky’s Greentree Motor Inn, a frequent venue, was notable for featuring a bowling alley, which fans took advantage of.
With 38 cons in 45 years, the numbering is screwy.
