Anyone familiar with the Tri-State Con, circa 1982? This little trophy recently sold on eBay, and although I didn't buy it, it looked interesting to me. Just curious if anyone knows about this con or trophy. Thanks! ... rophy.html

I once went to a gaming con in Raleigh, NC hosted by the gaming club at NC State called Tri-Con.  I believe it was even advertized in Dragon in later years.  I still have my first place certificate from a D&D Tourney I won there which specifically says "Tri-Con 3."  I won that in 1984, I believe, which means this pictured trophy, or whatever it was, might have been for Tri-Con number 1.  However, I was always under the impression that the "Tri" in Tri-Con was for what is know as the "Research Triangle."  Maybe this will help you in your search.   8)
