Winnipeg in '94
The first was launched about 1979 by Decadent Winnipeg Fandom, a group of young Canadians who decided a hoax bid was a fun way to subsidize a series of room parties. They sold presupporting memberships.
At least two fans, Leah Zeldes Smith and Greg Ketter, dug out their presupporting membership receipts from the DWF bid and presented them. The 1990s bidders, knowing nothing about the previous bid, were rather surprised — but they honored them.
