The stage competition was the best I have seen in the 3 years I have gone to SCAM, even without the 1st place winner. The 1st place winner's act was excellent and extemely smooth and polished, and I do not want to take anything away from that. He was like a young Lance Burton. He is from Las Vegas and just finished a 6 month tour with his act. He had already won, I believe, 13 or 14 awards for his act, and was taking a break in South Carolina from his tour. So he joins the SCAM competition and wins another. But . . . I would have liked to see one of the local guys win instead of "a ringer" for lack of a better word. Just the feeling I came away with after seeing all the work everyone else put in. How many times does someone need to prove they have an awardng winning act?

Jason Andrews is the guy who won the stage contest. He is a good friend of mine and both of us will be working the Midwest Jubilee of Magic in August 2008. Jason is really a great person, performer, and friend and was not a "ringer" in the contest. Him and Steve Daley did an east coast tour in 2007 in order to stop at several magic conventions. The goal was for Jason to get exposure. That is the goal of entering a contest is for someone to see you performing hoping they like your act and will book you in the furture. Jason does not have an magic Café account because they do not use AOL e-mails for accounts. He sent me an e-mail and wanted me to post this message on here.

Jason Andrew quote......
"I don't compete to prove I have an Award-Winning Act. I compete for the exposure, and I'm very sorry I didn't get a chance to chat with everyone at the convention, didn't have enough time, haha. I just don't want people thinking the wrong thing or getting the wrong idea of why I attend these conventions."
