The Bash at the Loft or 'BashCon' was a fan-run slash convention held in Maryland that focused on the TV show Sentinel. It ran for four years, from 1997 to 2000, and styled itself as "A Zine Relax - A - Con". The convention was also the place to announce the winners of the "Golden Guppy Awards for the 'best' in 'Sentinel' fandom."
In spite of its Sentinel focus the convention page stated: "ALL FANDOMS (STAR WARS:TPM, Professionals, One West Wakiki, Man from Uncle, Due South, Starsky and Hutch, Stargate SG1, Blake 7, etc.) WILL BE REPRESENTED AT THE CON WITH EMPHASIS ON 'THE SENTINEL'."
