I'm willing to bet a farthing that Richard Kaufman will not.
Cheers,
Steve

Apparently Blackpool has undergone a huge improvement development (I know for sure the Winter gardens has) overall yes I would agree, however I don't go as a tourist so the overall condition of the town doesn't really bother me that much, I just love the convention, the people, the atmosphere.

I'll be there.

Best convention in the world by a long way.

Great venue, great dealers, great acts, great lectures and cheap booze.

I'm not surprised.

Even in the Feb 2013 issue of Genii Derek is still getting a rough ride from Richard.

I think it's time to let go of the past and let bygones be bygones.

This insignificant political infighting just comes across as petty. Richard is too important a figure to allow himself to descend into this type of behaviour IMHO.

Hi Mike,
I have had the wonderful privilege of seeing some very fine acts over the years in the close up, the lectures and the gala showa, the organisers do a tremendous job every year in bringing the convention together as you well know. I will be in Blackpool from Thursday through to Monday and will more than likely see you in the Ruskin at some point. Look forward to meeting and chatting with you.
Best Wishes,
Mark

I've been asked to help out on a couple of dealer stands again.

Don't think I'll do it though as I want to enjoy the convention.

You will find me at the bar in the WG doing my new stuff. I sold out of notes last year by Saturday night so if you want my new notes (6 tricks) then you'll need to buy early.

See you there.

For those that have PM'd me I haven't finished writing my notes and I still need to take photos so I'm afraid you won't be able to get them before Blackpool. Sorry. Busy schedule at the moment.

Be prepared to bring a thick winter coat - it is always feezing cold and generally raining in Blackpool in February.
Blackpool itself is horrible, cheap and tacky - even if it has undergone a recent renovation.

However, the convention itself is always good fun.
It's a shame some of the lectures clash with each other in terms of the schedule.
I'm sure they could plan this better so you could see all the lectures if you wanted to, but alas, there are a few annoying overlaps (annoying for me at least).

I hope you enjoy the convention Smile

Blackpool can be summed up as Cheap and Cheerful (Not IBM or SAM Standard)

Plenty of dealers so if you are a junkie for the latest Magic Trick then this are the place to go to

Cheap Booze / Cheap Food Fish and Chips or Cheap curry House,

Poorly Organized Lectures that over lap

1.00pm to 2.00pm Star Lecture in the Pavilion Theatre by NICHOLAS EINHORN.

1.30pm to 2.30pm Star Lecture in the Spanish Hall by MATTHEW WRIGHT.

and the Close up (bit like a Cattle Market)


Items to avoid include After Gala Show Party which normally has some of the worst catering in the UK (Even Bad for Blackpool)

Anyway as Jamie is going a few of us will be looking out for him at the bar in the WG

Always good for a laugh
