San Francisco in '93 was the winner (see below for complete voting details). The committee distributed Progress Report 0, and Terry Biffel gave a brief report, listing the Guests of Honor. — Of the losing bids: Zagreb in 1993 had no statement, Hawaii in '93 released balloons (“The bid is dead; Long live the bid!”). For Phoenix in '93, Mr. Berry stated that they would not protest the pink ballots [the ballots distributed by Hawaii in '93 with a vote for Hawaii already written in], but strongly urged the meeting to reevaluate the role of write-ins in the voting process. (“I hope you get what you voted for.”)
