A bid to host the 1971 Worldcon in Washington, DC. It was run by Jay Haldeman and Bob Pavlat. Joe Haldeman, then serving in Vietnam, was their most distant supporter and had a photograph taken of him holding a "DC in '71" sign.

There was a Baltimore in '71 bid which was not on the ballot. It's unclear what the connection was between the two.

In voting at St. Louiscon, it lost to Boston in 71. See 1971 Worldcon Site Selection.
