Columbus in 1976

Columbus in 1976 was an unsuccessful Worldcon bid co-chaired by Bob Hillis and Larry Smith. It lost by a hefty margin to the Kansas City bid that put on MidAmericon — See 1976 Site Selection results. Ross Pavlac later attributed the margin of defeat to the fact that the bid committee devoted more time and effort to planning the future Worldcon than to campaigning for the right to host it.
