CoKoCon

Overview

CoKoCon (cokocon.org) is a new name in phandom, but it's the product of experience and it aims to bring consistency to the local science fiction convention by retaining the same core details year on year, as TusCon does in Tucson. Most of the core team ran Westercon 70 in 2017 for LepreCon, Inc.

The name is a portmanteau of CopperCon and ConKopelli, because it's a joint effort by CASFS and the WesternSFA. CASFS (the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society) has hosted annual CopperCons since 1981, but they've been on hiatus since 2014. ConKopelli was the friendly name given to the WesternSFA's Westercon in 2004.
