FWIW, that kind of happened with Adelaide in 2004.  We were in Perth for
LCA2003, in a meeting room, representatives from both Canberra and Adelaide
bid teams and Linux Australia exec, we gave our pitches and Steve Hanley
(Canberra team) offered it to Adelaide for 2004 and indicating that they'd
go for 2005.

It ended up in a good result too - Steve lurked on our mailing list all
thru to LCA2004 offering tips, and I lurked on their mailing list in the
lead up to LCA2005.  And the extra bonus was that we still share gelato
annually at each LCA as a result :-)
