A hoax bid for the 2000 Worldcon to be held in the Boston Mountains of Arkansas, perpetrated by Boston, MA, fan Michael Benveniste. Presupporters could acquire a sports towel featuring the logo (a boar riding a rocket), and its slogan was “The only bid that knows where its towel is.”

The hoax did not go so far as to file for the 2000 Worldcon Site Selection. It followed the abandoned Boston in '98 bid and overlapped the failed Boston in Orlando in 2001, both chaired by Mike’s wife, Deb Geisler.
