OKon

A convention held in the Tulsa, OK, area and organized by the local club, STARbase Tulsa. It grew out of a Star Trek convention (it had originally been known as Star Trek Mini Con).

In 1991, the chairman announced, apparently unilaterally, that the 1992 OKon would be the last. STARbase Tulsa kept meeting for another year and then died. Some OKon committee members later created Conestoga.
