I understand there were also early bids from Atenveldt and Calontir too.
It may just be that the Board felt there wasn't enough local support or
infra-structure in areas that sent bids. It takes alot to host a really
large event. Economics, facilities, volunteers,...Who knows. I think
there were lots of people thinking about it, but not alot of collective
action. It falls right in line with the general participation the last
couple of years.
