Hope to make it down to Kutztown...I heard that it's forecasting snow.

I had a great time with the usual cast of characters, and I saw an old friend R.J. Lewis who is a regular performer at Monday Night Magic, and is a real classy guy. I have the Daryl three DVD rope magic set, and boy was I wrong about him, I thought Daryl was all business, but he really cracked me up.

As usual, a good all around convention. Daryl's lecture contained some old Tarbell stuff with tweaks, a couple of items he was selling and the highlight for me a beautiful combination of ring off rope and ring on stick which for any worker was worth the price of admission. All delivered in a very entertaining way.

It sounded to me like he was losing his voice in the evening show (quite possible after two close up performances and demming all day). Perhaps not the best act to close a convention gala show, finishing with what could be considered a close up card trick, he might have been better opening the show and young Jay closing it. Almar was perfectly placed in the middle with his madness. You never know what to expect from Almar, it's like working with a short sighted knife throwing act. Here, amongst other thinks he got into a straight jacket rather than getting out. The skeleton costume he bought in the auction earlier in the day, as for the French Maid outfit....

Strong close up session from what I saw, though I had a slight hiccup on one table, as did Justin but it all seemed well received. As it was so close to Metro Magic I just did different stuff in case some attendees had been at both (which was the case).

Being behind the stand doesn't really give me time to session as much as I would like with people. I'm just going to have to attend a convention as a simple attendee for once then I'll have the time to session with people like Eric, Steve, Bill, Al, Rich, Cody (and all the others).

I think now, my next convention is Blackpool...

I'm so glad I made the trip to the convention yesterday. It was definitely well worth it!

Paul I totally agree that the Daryl's combo of ring off rope and ring on stick was well worth the price of admission. That is no doubt getting added into my set. It was also good to get to meet you, wish we had more time to talk, as well as session. I was hoping to show you a few things to get an opinion, guess we'll have to wait until next time.

There was some really great sessioning going on. I think more of it went on downstairs after dinner than anywhere else. Kainoa has a really great idea for Sun & Moon that he showed me, liked that one alot.

Overall, it was a great one-day convention that I will most certainly attend next year. This coming Sunday, Bob Little's Super Sunday. Man this conventions are killing me lol...should be another great one though. Hope to see some there as well.

I saw some old friends & met some new ones. I even learned a thing or two. That is how a convention should be. Paul, I loved your close up show. My wife also loved it...she is a tough spectator.... & the best praise of all that I can bestow on any performer is.....my daudhter (18 Yrs old) loved it....she is a tough sell! Great Day!

WOW guys, what another great convention.
I would like to give special thanks to Kainoa for attending again and putting on another GREAT close up show. He is truely in a class all by himself a true proffesional. I can't thank you enough.
Paul Hallas - not only a magician but a gentleman(only because he's English LOL)every year I get to rattle his brain and see something new every year for the close up show.
Daryl and Justin, I don't even think I have to tell you how great they were. But I would like to say buy Justins TRANS-FIXED it's unbelievable. better yet don't buy it I would like to keep it low key. I hope I can get you and your wife back next year.
Eric Jones - thanks for coming and performing in the close up also. "Oustanding"

Martini-Special thanks to you, with out you it wouldn't have been a success. Marty was kind of enough to be the auctioneer, emcee, and dealer. THANK YOU

Jay Mattioli - Thanks for helping me out, I won't forget

Almar, All I can say is I don't think I will EVER see a full grown man dressed up in a french maid outfit putting on a straight jacket in reverse ever again in my lifetime. And Josh you were a great assistant.

And last special thanks to the guys behind the scenes, Rich, Ryan, Wayne, Bob. oh and NANCY

Thanks, Todd Kent

It was another great convention and I am glad that it was so well attended.
I am also glad that everyone wore their wrist bands, and I did not have to kick anyone out of dinner.

See you next year.

With a hat like that I don't think anybody would try to sneak a free dinner past you.

Paul you make a good point and that was my first initial thought. But For the show to move smoothly I put Jay first so we didn't have to clean up Almar's mess and set up Jay's props all in one shot. Like Martini said "you don't want to see too much of the emcee" lol. We actually got good responses about opening the show with a big Bang.
As for Daryl he totally lost his voice the next day after the convention. I think your right Paul, two close up shows, a lecture, flying in from CA. the night before might have something to do with it.

Cheers

This last Kutztown one day convention was as good as they get. The people running this are really on a tear. Professional all the way. Two great professional lectures, a rotating close up show, a giant auction, flea market sales, and a great evening stage magic show. Seems they have decided to go first class. Includes a great all you can eat home cooked style meal. Worth taking the day off for. WOW! WOW! WOW! Congratulations. This is one that will begin to sell out.

Daryl could probably have worked front curtain if needed, but I see where you're coming from, though the behind the scenes work is of no importance to the audience, and Martini is an excellent M.C. Great gala show anyway. This was in no way a complaint, rather an observation Smile

Be interesting to see how you top this next year Smile

I don't know how Todd can top this years line up, I have a couple suggestions, but after I requested to have the godfather at MM IV Bob Solari asked me for his phone number.

Todd
There are some world class jugglers in the Philadelphia area if you are interested call me.

Who's going to Mingus Magic shop Friday night? I have a booking in Morgantown, but I will be there by 10:00 pm, so save me some cake. I have a new knock your socks off rope trick that I'm dieing to do for someone, my wife is totally indifferent about it.
Be there or be square
