A hoax bid for the 1983 Worldcon actually won by Baltimore in '83. The "committee' was George R. Paczolt, Sally C. Fink, Mike Glicksohn, Eva C. Whitley, Jack Chalker, Barbara Geraud, Wendy Pini, Fred Ramsey, and Ron Robinson.

Among other things, they promised that at Floodcon the GoHs would be drowned by the flood, which offered a way to deal with widely-disliked people who still deserved the honor.

Facilities: Pre-flood, the rooms will be in the Sheraton. Post-flood, they will be supplied by the Red Cross. The bid committee also noted that this convention presents great opportunities for fans who have invested in mop manufacturing.

This is a bid page. Please extend it by adding information about who was bidding, officers, committee list, what they were bidding for, who their opponents were, and anything notable about the bid, etc.
