Hey guys, were really looking forward to this year, but as we all know th budget is tight, so the internet feed isn't going to be possible. the people who made the best offer havent been doing long and its not worth the risk even at their price. also word of mouth will help. but we have lost the few people who had registered. guys I'm gonna be totaly up front. we need at least 20 buy april 15th. honestly why wait when you can save by registering early. if we make that, it will get through till may, but will need to registrations coming in. our performers have been awesome and understanding with whats going on, but weve promised all of them final notice by may 6th, and we really want it to be a yes. how bad to we want it to be a yes, so much so we are discussing that if there was to be profit made, giving to a charity. guys we just want to have a nice, down home feeling convention.

if for some reason we cant, I'm just saying, we will be trying again in 2010, and we'll continue to try until things get better for everyone, and the twin city retrurns.

any word of mouth advertising would be greatlly appreciated.

Kermit I'm only saying this as my opioion and speak for no one else. I can say I am planning on coming,but one of my hesiation is that I only hear about the convention is through the Café. I've been hearing about a website for a while now and if I wasnt a Café member and I was doing a search for some magic conventions I would never have known. I've only been to two conventions and I found them by search online not by word of mouth, it may seem small but if money is being asked some ppl want reassurance. There's but so many ppl on the Café that can spread the word of mouth way. I will be traveling almost 10 hrs to come to this convention imagine how far other ppl will be traveling and if someone is coming that far they want to see images a site something.
Okay, I give up what was your card?

Guys, I am telling you from my past experience this convention has had some GREAT talent. I will vouch for these guys. It's honestly probably one of the BEST little conventions I have ever been to. It's one of those conventions that you can talk to everybody and they're all nice as can be. People share, they're not rude. It's a good ol' southern hospitality atmosphere. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Let me just tell you this...when me and Jason went there a couple years ago, we went on our own dime. We broke even but MAN...we had the BEST time! Everybody was just so cool. We drove back the whole way to Florida talking about how that was probably one of the best conventions we had ever been to...and we've been to plenty!

I agree! Had I not gone that same year, I wouldn't have met you, Jason, Larry, or my buddy Jason Andrews. That's 4 great people and friends I wouldn't be affiliated with had I not attended that one convention!

Kermit,

You know that you can count on Christian and myself, as well as a few more of the Knoxville group.

I have never been to a convention before and am trying to book a hotel room. Where is the convention being held-to avoid staying too far away?

I think it is in the shopping mall in Bristol, VA. They have a small stage there. If that is the case I believe the hotel across from the mall is the Ramada Inn. Either way, the VA side of Bristol is small, so even if you stay at the Holiday Inn on exit seven, you're just a six mile shot down the interstate back to the convention.

Yes but off to a private area.In a little country town like this (Bristol is the birthplace of country music) we have a large private room in our local mall with a little stage in it.It is were bands get together to entertain the hillbilly's around here.lol.

This is a great convention to go to. Where in Birmingham do you stay? I'm from Birmingham also.

Yeah, it's in a shopping mall... the mall doesn't really get much business, so it's not like you have people gawking - it's fairly private... the stage used to be open to the mall, but it isn't anymore. There is also a Chick-fil-a in the mall, and they'll be rolling out a peach milkshake for the summer... so magic and peach milkshakes??? and one of the last existing No Fear stores in existance? (Surely you guys remember No Fear!)

Fun Times.

Yeah, but don't let it fool you. It's actually pretty cool. I mean, you got your own private area for the convention, eateries right outside the door, don't forget about the awesome bar in there where we partied until 3am and then you got all the chicks in the mall. Sure they're 14 but hey...

Barney-I live just past Shoal Creek, work at Trussville Fire. I was planning on coming to the convention with an invite from the Great Kyle Jarrard-email pal for many months and a huge advice giver. However, I called Top Hat yesterday to register and the very nice gentleman told me that I was one of the first to call-unless they had at least 75 folks register, they would have to cancel it. Has this happened before??

I liked the mall location better than when they had it at the hotel. Everything you need in one place.
Be remembered for performing what looks like MAGIC, not skill.
