Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone knew where to find or had a list of all the IBM Close-Up and Stage Winners. Also I really want to find a list of all the people who won the Gold Cups Award. Any help is appreciated.

Hi,
I'm Aaron Rabkin, the youth close up winner. I was wondering if anybody had seen my performance and could possibly give feedback? Thank you very much.

Aaron, you're my hero today. Not only the Youth Close Up winner, but asking for feedback so that you can improve your magic performance. That's outstanding! I didn't see your performance, but I wish I had. Everyone who participates in these types of events should seek out feedback, both from the judges and audience - how else to move forward.

Hope everyone that saw your performance responds with helpful information. Good luck!

Feedback is always a great way to improve. They should make it more standard in a competition to have all the judges sit down and talk with you. I was lucky to get the chance to sit down with one of the judges, but always enjoy hearing more than one opinion.

Here is a short description of my act to help jog any memories. I opened by "turning invisible coins invisible." I made them vanish and then reappear again. I produced the "invisible coin purse" which they came from and then proceeded with a coins across. Following my coins, I did a cups routine in which I produced the balls from a purse frame. I did a vernon style routine and ended by juggling the final loads. I appreciate any help you can give.

Ain`t it great to be from Illinois, I fell important because I know them both (but then again, that makes me less important if all the magicians I know are better than me).
You know you are a magician when you have boxes full of lecture notes you have never read, but still are excited about going out and buying more.

WOW! Blast from the past. This was my first and last IBM convention. It was nice to make the finals out of all those other competitors. I didn't really think I would... Huh. Good times.
Swing hard, swing often, and we'll catch ya on the Flip-Side!
