I will try to attach the flyer here. But the acts are all booked at this point.

Mark Kornhauser will be here, Mike Michaels will do his famous Robot act, Jay Matoli will do Illusions, Jay Sterling-manipulations and Charlie Frye & company. Closeup will be David Stone, Tom Craven, Howie Schwartzman, and Axel Hecklau. Also working Fred and Millie Witwer and bullwhip and rope expert Chris McDaniels. Six lectures, closeup and stage contests, and free Saturday night buffet after the show.

This is the 20th anniversary and held in the historic restored 1926 Palace Theater in Canton, Ohio. It is a magnificent theater with moving clouds on the ceiling. With 3/4 of the audience for the Saturday night show, the show plays like it should for real people. You can gauge how acts play for real people.

It is an old time smaller convention with big time talent. Here is the link to the convention....www.battleofmagicians.com. Email me direct and I can forward you the flyer. It is too big to post here.

I take it you will be there ace of spades? Have you been before? This will be my 5th year and I have never been disappointed. Mark Kornhauser was one of the funniest MCs I have seen. Hope to see you there!

Yes I am planning to come, along with some others from TN. I have been several times. It is my favorite convention. Tim does a great job. It is worth it just to be in the Palace Theater. I think the Saturday night show 2 years ago was the best I have ever seen (Kevin James, Stephen Bargatze, Arthur Trace, El Gleno Grande, Ridgeway & Johnson).

Kornhauser is a hoot - AND a really nice guy too. I'm hoping to make it this year. I love Battle.

Just looked at the website and it said Tom Craven was from UK-Kent....I believe he lives in Kent, Ohio it is on the bio page.
Looks like it will be a great convention this year.

Knowing Tim, (he always takes license with his locations), he probably meant Upper Kent, Ohio as opposed to Lower Kent, Ohio.

Thanks Bob. Looking forward to seeing you there also. Now I have to get off my butt and get some stock built for it.

Sometimes it seems there are more than one of me.

NOW THIS WILL BE FUN!!! David Stone, Howie Swarzman, Axel Hecklau. And look at all the other performers. I have always loved hanging out in the bar area after hours and spending time showing off some new stuff to the hotel guests and staff. Can't wait. Hope to see some new faces along with some old ones. The art of magic needs to keep growing.

The 2011 Battle of Magicians will soon be here. This will be the 20th anniversary year for the madcap, down home, old time convention held in Canton, Ohio.

Booked this year are some top flight acts including Mike Michaels the Robot Magician. This is one act that has played all over the world and that you just do not see at magic conventions. This will be his first magic convention appearance east of the Mississippi ever. Mark Kornhauser will emceed the big Saturday night show in the historic 1926 Palace theater. Mark has some new material for his return Canton engagement that will delight and excite. Jay Mattioli will add his unique style to bigger illusions this year. Jay Sterling will demonstrate his classy new age manipulation magic that is always a pleaser. Charlie Frye is someone you may have seen but he is definitely worth seeing again.

Closeup will feature Axel Hecklau (Germany), David Stone (France), Howie Swartzman, and Tom Craven. There are six lectures, dealers, contests and a big free buffet party after the Saturday night show.

A few spots remain in the closeup and stage contests with good prize money. The stage contestant winner may have the opportunity to perform on the Palace stage for the public shows with the big time acts. This could be your chance to say you worked the "Palace".

Here is the link for the website with the performers, dealers and schedule. http://www.battleofmagicians.com.

And remember the rate goes up for registration on April 15th (yes you can use it as a tax deduction next year).

Oh yea, the parking is free.

Just a couple more weeks to go!! Can't wait to see some great lectures and have a nice relaxing weekend. This convention is so layed back you would think it's a family reunion. Well I guess it is in a way.

I don't know. It's is fun but I hate the thought of claiming most of the guys as relatives.

Registration goes up tomorrow.

Contests still might have a few openings. Check with Tim. The money is good.
