A bid to hold the 1998 Worldcon in Atlanta, GA. The other bidders were Boston in '98, Boston in 1998, Baltimore in '98 (which won) and Niagara Falls in '98. See 1998 Worldcon Site Selection for details.

This seems merger of the Atlanta -- Real Soon Now (ARSN) (which had an ad (naming Bill Ritch as "figurehead") in a ConFrancisco PR in 1991) bid with Worldcon Atlanta, Inc..

At Intersection the Worldcon in Glasgow in 1995, the bid gave out condoms in a matchbook-like holder that on one side showed their rocket logo and said "Wrap Your Rocket" and on the other side said

       AIDS can kill
       Don't be silly
       Put a condom
       On your willy
