Wow...

I'm going to be taking a road trip with a friends or two to this, hope to see people there...

DEFINATLY check out Tim Conover... I saw him perform his "laymen routines" at WMS and they *killed* the entire room of magicians. Top Notch stuff!!!

Don't think I'll make it till friday or so, but hopefully those 2 days will be fantastic!!!

Well, first SCAM, and now Magi-Fest. I've been booked elsewhere that weekend, and am not going to make it after all! Shame, because there are a lot of folks I was hoping to see this year. So, Christian I want you to represent us TN guys and go ahead and take first place in the stage comp.
Swing hard, swing often, and we'll catch ya on the Flip-Side!

I checked the schedule, and I don't think Tim Conover is lecturing, only performing.

Just got my confirmation letter today. I will be attending the Thursday night Big Six Close-up Show. What are we, ten days away? I must say my curiosity and excitement is gaining steam.

Bruce,
What is his name? I will be at the close-up contest.
One thing about contest is to get an act that realy SMOKES! Not just technically, but presentation wise as well. It should be a good solid 10 to 11 min act. (at least that was the time frame when I competed at the fest some 13 years ago)
Tell him to have fun, and engage with the audience as MUCH as possible.
Hope this has helped,
Justin Miller

Oh, try and stop by at one of my lectures. Would love to chat with you and your son!

Hi Jussy,

Thanks for the tips. His name is Phillip Epstein. We are working heavily on his presentation. He is very personable and funny. One of the items listed to be judged is "Program". I believe this would refer to his presentation, but I am not 100% sure. The scoring for the entire act is:

- SHOWMANSHIP - 1-10 points.
- TECHNICAL SKILL - 1-10 points
- ORIGINALITY - 1-10 points
- PROGRAM - 1-10 points

He performs Friday morning. Come see him if you can. We will be sure to stop by and see you.

Thanks again,

Bruce

Hi Kline,

Thanks. We are keeping it in that range. Tough to do! I think he would perform all morning if they would let him.

I am definitely going to be checking out as much as I possibly can at the 'Fest'. We are now seven days away, almost to the minute.

Hope to see all of you guys there.

You gonna wear your Browns gear? I would HATE to have to do a beat down on a fellow magi!

Doomo;

How else would I expect you guys to recognize me? In fact, I'm trying to find my old Mike Phipps jersey just for he occassion!

Phipps on Thursday
Herman Fontentot on Friday
Gerard Warren on Saturday

How's that for an impressive line-up? You won't think your're at Magi-fest. You'll think you're at Brownsfest!

Later,
Mark

Oh, no! I just thought of something. I hope my wife didn't throw all that stuff out when she spring cleaned last year. Tragic!
