From an ad in Pop Stand Express #16: "September 4-7, 1987, Sheraton Inn—Lansing, Michigan. A Pretty Good Con gives you a chance to come and have four days of fun with friends that you haven't seen all summer long. [1] We're not a World Con or NASFiC. We're a media oriented convention. MediaWest*Con is getting pretty crowded, so we're holding a second convention in Lansing...with the Carleton's assistance. We're also a non-profit organization. By law, all membership profits must be used for the convention. Which makes for a really good convention for you. We've got Pretty Good Features: A real movie theatre (where we will be showing all three films in the Star Wars trilogy, 50 dealers room tables, art show run by four-time MW*C veteran Karen River, Costume Competition and Masquerade Ball, Discussion Panels, zine reading room, Function rooms available for member receptions and parties.
