I will be there and am thrilled it will be in Pittsburg which is at least somewhat closer for me than Pigeon Forge (although I hope to get down there some time as well).

I probably will not be able to make it- remote chance that I can. Would love to be there though. My former pastor (Calvary Bible Church, Kalamazoo)and great friend Jesse Boggs is senior pastor at Northgate Church, 238 West View Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15229 (services at 11AM) if looking for a church to attend on Sunday morning there. His church sponsors a lot of Christian concerts,and Pastor Jesse's talented son Wes (in the praise team) played guitar for a number of national touring bands. I miss Pastor Jesse- we still message each other from time to time, just a great guy with a wonderful pastor's heart. I wish I could meet you Mike and be there for sure. $40 is a great price and well worth it.

I don't know how far away this is from the ADVANCE conference site- but there is a pretty well stocked magic store in Pittsburgh called "The Cuckoo's Next Magic Shop" at 2307 1/2 East Carson Street that you may want to check out too. Go to the store's website for details, they often advertise in The Linking Ring, etc..

Whoops, meant to type "nest" above, not next. I would love to be at the ADVANCE conference, Duane's stuff is always more than just theory and general good advice (which is given for sure- like we as performers need to practice more, be professional, plan, etc.), but is very PRACTICAL as well featuring specific items which can be used in your programs...

I have never attened this advance thing but knowing Duane and having worked with him I know that you are in for a treat.
