Highmore in '76
It is possible that the Highmore bid may not have been entirely serious inasmuch as it was bidding for Highmore, South Dakota, population 800, the ancestral home of Boston fan Richard Harter. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highmore,_South_Dakota
Highmore is a ranching area, primarily and the local convention facilities included a ten-room motel. Some of the bid's advertising riffed on this. For example, the bid's logo was a cartoon by Karel Thole of a sheep in a high-tech helmet: The Space Merino.
