Xanadu 5 was held November 18-20, 1988 at the Ramada inn, Opryland in Nashville, TN. The GoH was Jim Baen. It was chaired by Fran Bray and Bob Tucker was toastmaster.

Dan Caldwell writes:

The con staff was expecting another increase in attendance, but the con suffered a small (50 people) drop in attendance. We shared the hotel with members of a bridge tournament being held at Opryand that weekend. Saturday evening Kerry Gilley got on the elevator with several "blue haired" types. They asked if he was "one of those strange people?" Kerry made one of the great comebacks of all time by replying "No ma'am, I have never played bridge in my life." The con chair almost gave him a free membership.
