The opposition to the LA in '80 bid was Phoenix in '80. See 1980 Westercon Site Selection. The LA committee had planned to use the LA Marriott, the site of Westercone again, but discovered that Doug Wright had signed a 3-year contract with the Marriott which included the 4th of July weekend. They moved next door to the Hyatt.
