Transcript <£> MS. The Committee for Boston in 1980 is bidding to hold the 1980 Eastern Zone Worldcon in Boston, Massachusetts. We feel that we offer the most capable committee and the best facilities and we hope that, after reading this flyer, you will agree. You can join us as a Pre-Supporting member by sending $1.00 or more to us at Post Office Box 714, Boston, MA 02102. (We are also accepting Pre-Opposing memberships for $2.00 or more.) Pre-Supporting and Pre-Opposing members of Boston in 1980 will get a dollar credit toward registration at the 1980 Worldcon if we win. Our Philosophy We believe that the Worldcon belongs to the fans, not to the Con Committee, and that the Committee holds the Convention in trust for fandom. This imposes certain unwritten obligations on the Committee: the traditions must be followed and innovations should be made only to enhance — not disrupt — the Convention. In short, the Committee is responsible to fandom for running the Worldcon right. Now, every fan has his or her own definition of what "right" is. We don't feel that the Committee should select one or another, but should try to encompass all of these feelings of what a Worldcon should be. In particular, there should be no attempt to exclude any aspect of fandom. And in order to be responsive to the needs of fandom, it is essential that the Committee maintain prompt and open communications with the Convention membership. This is the kind of Worldcon we want to put on for you. We have enjoyed running Worldcons and Regionals in the past, and we believe we have demonstrated our enthusiasm and ability. Of course we will make mistakes — that is inevitable. But we can admit our mistakes and work to correct them. With fandom's help, we're willing to do our damnedest to make the 1980 Worldcon the best ever. We'll be working for you — and with you. How To Vote The site and committee of the 1980 World Science Fiction Convention will be chosen two years in advance by the members of Iguanacon, the 1978 Worldcon, which will be held in Phoenix, Arizona, over Labor Day weekend. You can become a Supporting Member of Iguana- con by sending $7.00 to Iguanacon P. O. Box 1072 Phoenix, AZ 85001 This entitles you to receive their publications and to nominate and vote for the Hugo awards. If you can travel to Phoenix and want to attend the festivities in person, you have to pay a little more to become an Attending Member. Attending Membership rates are $15.00 until the end of 1977, $20.00 in 1978, and will be higher if you join at the convention itself. You must be either a Supporting or Attending Member of Iguanacon in order to vote for the 1980 site selection. Voters have the choice of sending in a mail ballot or voting in person at Iguanacon. At the time that you vote, you will also be required to pay a small amount to be credited toward your membership in the 1980 convention, whichever committee wins. August 1977
