If it is minolta flash, the minolta flash comes with a small stand that mounts onto the tripod, and this can be used on other minolta mount flash eg. metz etc.
If it is other brands, I have seen adaptors with a tripod hole at the bottom and a flash hotshoe on top. Not sure where you can get them though.

Get the hotshoe with slave sensor from CP or AP. It has a tripod socket located at the bottom to screw onto the standard 1/4" thread for mounting your camera to the tripod.
It's very cheap too. Although u won't need the slave for your 80DX...can always cover it up or disable it if u don't want.
