NASFiC 4, CactusCon, was held September 3-7, 1987 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Hyatt Regency, the Adams Hilton, and the Phoenix Convention Center. The GoH was Hal Clement, and the FGoH was Marjii Ellers.
It was chaired by Bruce Farr and there were about 3000 attendees. The convention published Con Games, a fanzine discussing con-running.
It was initially run as a for-profit corporation, causing no little controversy at the time. In August 1986 it was turned over the the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society, a non-profit.
