Lexicon

(1) A NESFA relaxacon.

Lexicon (so-called because it was first held in Lexington, MA) was NESFA's summer relaxacon. (See Codclave for NESFA's winter relaxacon.) It was basically a weekend-long con suite held somewhere somewhat interesting. After NESFA bought a clubhouse and started meeting more frequently, interest in the summer outing waned.
