i think blackpool is the only bid.. although they do still need to have a majority vote of 'yes' to be accepted..
I did hear that there was another bid.. but i'm discounting that as I only heard it today (hence think its just a rumor!)
depending on what the blackpool flyers say (and I cant read it from the photos) they might be only collecting 'intent' or making people aware of the costs and dates IF successful..
I cant remember exactly what happened at FISM 2006, but fliers were definately put out from each of the bids with ideas of costs, dates, etc etc
until I hear officially.. nothings official :)
