New Orleans in 82

Wikidot is dying. This site has moved to

A bid to host the 1982 Worldcon in New Orleans. It was chaired by John Guidry and other bid committee members included Jeremy Barry, Lester Boutillier, Doris Butler, John Dilworth, Tom Longo and Bob Lupton.

The bid seems to have been announced in late 1977. It faded away at some point and did not file. (See 1982 Site Selection results.)

Mike Glyer commented about the committee membership in File 770 #1, "If not all are household names, the absence of past feud-ensnared bidders may help."

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.
