"Baycon" as a convention name has a complicated history, with two Westercons, a Worldcon and at least one regional using that name. This Westercon (#14) appears to have been the first to use the name. See Baycon for the combined Worldcon/Westercon or Baycon (Bay Area regional) for information about other cons.
