Started the tradition of having the next Worldcon run the post-Hugo party at Nolacon. Previously, Jim Frenkel had been running a Hugo Loser's party after the awards, but he decided to retire that year. MCFI decided adopting that party was a good idea, and other Worldcon committees have continued the tradition.
