[b]Carolina Close-up Convention[/b]
[i](The East Coast Super Session)[/i]

I’m pleased to announce [i]“Carolina Close-up Convention”[/i] is still going strong! The convention has been in existence for the past 3 years (under a couple of different names) and has always been host to some great talent such as Fisher, Asher, Wagner, Gallo, Kosby, Skutt, England and many others.

Moving forward - I'll be hosting the event and I am very excited about the potential this “little” convention has to offer. All the talent is already booked and we have some special events that I hope you will find just a bit different from the norm.

Here are the details . . .

[b]Date/Location[/b]
October 2nd and 3rd 2009
Charlotte University Holiday Inn
8520 University Exec Park Dr
Charlotte, NC 28262

[b]Talent[/b]
I’m very excited about the line-up. I believe we have hit a great balance between established names and new “Up and Comers”. I hope you agree . . .
[list]
[*]Eric DeCamps
[*]Steve Beam
[*]Nathan Kranzo
[*]Tyler Wilson
[*]Geoff Williams
[/list]

[b]Special Events[/b]

[b]New Comer Lecture[/b] – I think this has the potential of being something special. Each year moving forward the “New Comer Lecture” will feature someone who is unknown to the masses but will be a familiar name to those “in the know”. The goal here is to give someone a chance to get some of the recognition they deserve as an innovator/creator of magic. The identity of the lecturer will remain a mystery up until the time they are introduced. This year’s New Comer will not disappoint.

[b]One Trick Pony Contest[/b] – the goal for convention is to emphasize the Innovation, Creativity and Exploration within the Art. With that in mind we have put together a contest focused on those aspects. The One Trick Pony Contest is all about innovation whether in effect, method or presentation. In other words this contest focuses on originality. Make sure you check out the website for detail - however I do want to mention what first prize will be so you know that your efforts will be rewarded. We have arranged for 3 nights accommodation (room only) in Las Vegas or Orlando. Not bad for a small convention!

[b]Social Jam Hour (Hosted by Eric Jones)[/b] – A few years ago I lectured at “The Second Deal” convention in Atlanta. One of the highlights was a session hosted by Paul Cummins that allowed everyone to share a move, trick or idea they had created or discovered with the group in a “formal” manner. With permission from Jason Alford we are taking the same concept and expanding it to encompass all of facets of close-up magic. Eric Jones will be hosting the event.

[b]The Sleight Club Lecture[/b] – This will be the third year that the “The Sleight Club” (a local group of magic thinkers) will present a new lecture at the Carolina Close-up Convention. To see what Ray Kosby, Eric Jones and Aaron Delong have to say about the “The Sleight Club” take a look at the following post

[url]http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/search_post.php?topic=227448&forum=30&post=5225705[/url]

Of course we will also have a few dealers including Fred’s Books and Tony Miller from RFA Productions.

As you can see we have a great line-up and some cool events. I hope you will make it!

This is always a great "small" convention. Scott has really put together a solid lineup of lecturers. Plus,I'm hearing there will be a few other recognizable names attending. The Newcomer Lecture is intriguing and the Social Jam Hour - hosted by Eric Jones - will be fun.

Good to see Fred Mitchell and Tony Miller - and Rosie, I hope - will be there. Fred always goes home with some of my cash and I'll send Tony home with some refreshments from Brooklyn.

Looking forward to October.

Woot!

I can't freakin' wait for this convention! Scott could have paid me $1.50 to perform, and I still would have done it; the guys he's lined up are incredible, and I'm just honored to be working with them.

And lest we not forget that one of the killer guys that will be kicking buttocks at the convention is none other than the convention organizer himself, Scott Robinson. Anyone who's ever read Trapdoor knows he's got the goods.

Bring your game face!

Tony, I'm going to give it a serious shot. The advantage of performing for my client is that I am on stage A LOT. The disadvantage is that my weekends are always booked.

However, this event is far enough out that my show producer might be able to rearrange the schedule. I'll let you know. It would be good to break bread with you again.

Warm regards,

Apparently Scott been working his a** off to book great talent and dealers.

Hope word gets out to the rest of the country!!!!

This will be worth it!

His "5 minute limit" contest sounds perfect. Everyone has a least one powerhouse effect that they do.

Bring It On! and win 3 nights in Vegas!

This was an awesome convention. My hat goes to Scott and crew for putting together a terrific 2 day convention. This is one of those conventions where the calibre of the attendees is on par with the talent. Being able to jam with guys like Syd Segal, Ray Kosby, Joel Givens etc in the lobby just rocks!!!!

The highlight for me was the evening close-up show featuring the very hilarious Tyler Wilson(who actually used ClipShift for laymen), Geoff Williams(who was as funny as always), Nate Kranzo(who's heartbreak routine killed) and Eric DeCamps who provided a thought provoking exerpt from his full show Pure Magic, and with Hannibal as the MC. One of the best evening shows I've ever attended. Next year is going to be HARD to follow.

I know I had fun. Hanging with Wilson, Aviles, Citino, Mead, Jones, Givens, Miller (the Tony brand), Williams, Kranzo, Criswell, Hedges, and more. I couldn't agree more with you Eric. The calibre of attendees was great.

The problem is though, And this was stated to hex, that if you work really hard to convince the judges that you are doing bad ditches when you are not...well, you get those results... I see enough bad sleights that I am willing to accept them at face value... So pretending you are doing bad sleights... well it is its own reward...

Hey Guys,
Between the brownies, the anti-cubes, and the hands-down BEST fake toppiting I have ever witnessed (courtesy of hefemexy), this was one of the best conventions I have been to in a long long time.

It was amazing getting to meet up with old friends, and meet some new ones, too (Eric Jones, Bill Citino, Eric Richardson, etc.), so as much as the talent ROCKED (with the exception of yours truly) the attendees truly made this convention unforgettable.

I can't wait for next year!
