The History of Loscon in a Nutshell…
In December 1975 the Los Angeles Science Fantasy prepared LA 2000, a special convention to celebrate the club’s 2,000th meeting. The event was so enjoyable that it was repeated in 1976. At this time it moved to October to honor the club’s anniversary and called itself LOSCON for the first time. It was held twice in 1977, the second that year being the first with an official guest of honor, Dr. Jerry Pournelle. By 1978 it had finally settled into an annual November affair, the Los Angeles Regional Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention. Then starting with LOSCON 9 in 1982, the Thanksgiving weekend was chosen and became subsequently the traditional date.
