I don't need alcohol, that's right! Smile

Showed a few my contest act with mixed results

Some loved it, Tom said the humor was braggy and grating and did not bring out my true personality.

Unfortunately, I trust Tom's instincts more. Time for a re-write.

The contest is Monday. I should have showed Tom sooner but he's always sooo... honest. LOL

Took 3rd place out of 8 in the competition. Lowest I've placed in quite a while.

That's how I would have called it as well, so I'm not feeling robbed.

No overt mistakes and the act went well but I had a slow talky start.

Picto-Transpo was a big hit but I only did 2 effects in the 10 min.

1st and 2nd did several effects each and had a strong showing and they are both likable guys as well (stupid charisma! LOL).

This competition was good in getting me to learn two good effects.
I'll probably have more regular use for the Picto-Transpo but Technicolor Prediction has real charm for adult groups and is easy to carry.
I'm sure it will play stronger when I'm not nervous.

All in all, I wish I'd placed higher but very I'm happy with the additions to my repertoire.

Mary,
Sorry to hear that you didn't do as well as you would have liked. But competitions do become a forcing mechanism with deadline yo learn new tricks - and that's always a good thing!

Next time you will do better!

Congrats, Mary. Competitions are highly subjective, I think. I'd say their main benefit is the focused motivation they provide. Smile

Best of luck and have fun Laurie.

I just re-painted my old Abbot's Case n table. I re-painted just so it would look nice to carry in as I don't bother with the cumbersome protective case cover and I use a table skirting in performance.
Here is what one looks like.
http://www.abbottmagic.com/Abbotts-Case-......able.htm

Years ago I'd taken off the taller wheel stands and just put wheels on the bottom because I'm short and I wanted the table top a bit lower.
That made it so when I'd get Magic from under the Top I'd have to sort of dive under (which looked awful) because losing the wheel stands made the whole thing shorter.
So I added a removable shelf that hangs @4" under and juts out @3" (on the back) from the Table top.
Now I can lay out many of my props in order at a very comfortable reach and out of sight.
I'd been planning this fix for years. It is not a beautiful design but it works like a dream. I wish I'd done it sooner.

Although I couldn't follow the Magic is looks like everyone is having fun. You have a great way of relating to Kids Laurie.

Quite a beautiful town in the background.
