KC in 2016 Worldcon Bid

On the theory that it’s always news to somebody (a theory I plan to write about before long), let me be the last to tell you that a Kansas City in 2016 bid was launched at the NASFiC.

The leadership is Ruth Lichtwardt, Jeff Orth and Diane Lacey (she lives in Toronto). Lichtwardt and Orth are veterans of KC’s annual ConQuest, and the trio worked effectively as last year’s (2009) Hugo Administrators.

The bid has a Twitter feed, there’s a kcin2016.org website under construction, and they’ve got a Facebook page (registration required).

  1. Thanks, Mike.
    While you may have been late to the game by internet standards, the accuracy and depth of the piece is appreciated. As one of us who will remain nameless pointed out, it was the first time somebody seemed to acknowledge that it is a team bid.
