Odyssey Con (WI)

(Did you mean the New Zealand convention?)

A convention, also called OddCon, held in Madison, WI from 2001 to 2017. It seems to have had a cow theme — each convention had a cow-pun-related subtitle. After a major controversy in 2017 which resulted in the withdrawal of all 3 GoHs (see Odyssey Con 2017 for more details), the convention went ahead that year with replacement guests, but was thereafter discontinued.
