Nope...busy. Is there a web page you can point me to for info, though? It sounds interesting.

IBM convention info can be found at http://www.magician.org

I might be coming up there for a day or so. I'll see what I can do to extend it to Saturday, but with the July 4th weekend, returning to Vegas is a bit difficult.

Hey Gang,

If you can not attend the I.B.M. International Convention in Reno then here is the best thing to being there........

The I.B.M. will have a live Webcam during the convention where you catch some exciting live footage of the convention. It will be on the I.B.M. Website at http://www.magician.org

Also Ryan Pilling will be broadcasting his MagicBroadcast.com live during that same week. If you have been listening in go check it out now.

I will be there live in person. If you are coming to the convention make sure to say "Hello" I am always ready to meet a new friend in magic, old ones too.

I will be flying in for a couple of days. Monday thru Thursday. Can't wait to meet some people in person that I send a lot of my money to. Chance Wolf, Jamie Schoolcraft, Dean Dill among others.

Looking forward to catching the just added Mike Close lecture. I missed him in Columbus so now's a chance.

When is the convention?
Message: Posted by: Dave V (Jun 17, 2005 01:04PM)
June 28 to July 2

Information can be found by clicking any one of the links already posted above.

I need to come in for the Ring 2100 meeting, and it's early Thursday morning. So, unless I come into some extra cash in the next two weeks, I won't be there on Saturday.

I take that back. As it turns out, it's cheaper for me to stay a couple of days rather than returning right away.

See you on Saturday!

Last Year's IBM Convention in Cleveland was great! It was my first IBM Convention.

Reno should be even better. Unfortunately, I too am booked elsewhere. But Steve Hart's reminder of the web casts was terrific. I got to see tehm doing them live last year, so this year I will connect via the web.

If you can make it, GO!

I.B.M. I wish! that's the only club I'm not a member of....Impossible to join!
S.A.M. Ive been a member for ten great years, Acadamy of Magical Arts, ive been a member of for 6 years. I.M.S. 12 years. If you don't know anybody that is a member of the I.B.M. It is impossible to join, cause I have been trying to join for over 9 years now. Hell I guess after this long of trying why should I even bother explaining! Besides I'll be attending Jeff McBrides 6 day extended Master Class in July. So have fun guys, and break a wand!

Certainly if there is an active IBM ring in your area, and you attend a couple of meetings, you will find guys falling over themselves to sign your app.

And if there isn't a ring nearby, you can always take a look the online IBM Ring 2100 and based on your credentials, it should not be too hard to find a couple of members there to "sponsor" you.

Hey man, I see those big rings in your Avatar, and I am a big ring guy too, so I might even be willing to stand for you, as soon as I send in my annual dues ;) since anyone signing for others must be a member in good standing.

A friend of mine got his app signed by a former officer in our ring, and it turns out, that guy hadn't paid his IBM dues in years (he hasn't been an officer for a number of years either, and probably never will be again..)

Hey there,

I too will be at IBM ... Just hanging out with old and new friends...

oh John,

Just send in your IBM application and I am certain the folks there will sponsor you...I know a person who lived in a place where no other magicians were located and they did the same for him!

I'll be there for the whole convention.

Frank... can you bring your gibs? Still anxious to see them.

See you all there in the morning!

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.
An application is being sent, so I'll send it in and hope for the best.
Nothing would please me more than becoming a magician member of the I.B.M.
So I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed!

Sincerely Johnathon Marshall

For those of you on your lap tops in Reno, please say hello to Mr. Roger Miller from the Nearly Normal Guy.

Mr. Miller is a member of Ring 129 here in the Midwest.

The I.B.M. and Magic are in good hands with the New First Couple, Roger & his delightful wife, Sheila.

Be safe wherever you are.

I will be in Boston for the S.A.M. Convention next week.

I just wanted to make a follow up to a post I left many months ago here, about my wish of becoming a member of the I.B.M. And how it was almost impossible to join.
Well thanks to the magic Café's own Steve Hart, that dream has come true. Thank you steve. Are there any I.B.M. events scheduled this Up-coming year in Reno? Looking foreward to making some new friends in magic! Good Bless!
Sincerely Johnathon Marshall

Kalin and Jinger have there Underground Magic Theater in downtown Reno.
It is unbelievable. It is like a museum. A great show.

Go to: http://www.renomagic.com

There is also a group of magicians that meets there as a magic club.
They will tell you when they meet.

They have a good group. I was able to lecture there last year.
