Jimmy,

At the risk of opening an old can of worms, cgiking refers to the one and ONLY Abbott's Magic Get Together, a terrific convention that has been hosted by the Abbotts' Magic Company for 69 years. . . this will be #70. There is only one Abbotts Get Together, and if you've never been, I highly encourage you to go. It is the warmest, friendliest and most enjoyable gathering of magicians you'll attend.

The MagicCelebration was started a few years ago which confused attendees, as the organizers started to refer to a "Magic Week" and a "Magic Celebration" to create an impression that this was something other than a convention hosted, advertised and paid for by Abbotts.

Take a look at the wonderful website that cgiking links in his note. There, you'll get a sense of the history behind the Abbott's Magic Get Together, the amazing people who have been involved for so many years and the wonderful performers who have taken the stage in the Colon High School.

I'd encourage you to look at the line up offered by Abbotts this year, to include Oscar Munoz, the Blackstone family, Jeff Hobson, Richard Forget, Jason Bishop, Jay Mattioli and so much more and compare it against any other "offer" in Colon that week. I think the choice will be obvious, as it has been for the many, many Abbott's Magic Get Together regulars.

And if you make it, please pop backstage and say hi.

Kind regards,

Mark

I'm fortunate enough to live a very short drive from there so I'll be there as always. Please come say hello to me if you see me there.

Magicelebration is now in it's fourth year and attendance for MAGIC WEEK has increased. We spend more on advertising this event in August than anyone. It is for real and we are very proud of our accomplishments and it continues to grow. Come see for yourself.....Smile Rick Fisher, president

Thanks Dave. I was just curious because I am performing at the MagiCelebration this year. I've been talking with Rick over the past several months. Looking forward to getting up to that part of the country. Haven't been to Colon for some period of time.

I haven't been to Abbott's gettogether in years. I was in Colon last year. Used to go all the time when I lived in Kalamazoo.

Thanks for asking. In April I sent out several hundred day care post cards, so I will be making the kiddies laugh in July, and August. When are you doing another comedy special? I would love to perform at that kind of event. Tell all the waitresses in Curlie's bar that I said hi, and make sure my 8 X 10 autographed picture is still on the wall.

I'll tell them. One waitress there comes to mind right away.. Smile

I'll have another magic night sometimes. The place I had the last one in is constantly asking me when I'm going to do another show like that. After seeing the success of the first one they really want it to happen again. I'm sure I'll be asking performers at the Abbott's get together if they'll be interested in performing in my show sometime. So I'll let you know.

Once again. If you'll be at Abbott's this year please come up and say hello to me. I have friends coming form my home town to see some of the shows and contests so I'll be just hanging out most of the time. I'll be at Curly's quite a bit because that's where I told my friends to meet me.

There are corn fields at the edge of town then a breakfast place, two bars, a nicer family restaurant on the next block, and then more corn fields, because you have just left town. If that waitress that Ron mentioned asks about me, give me a call. Do not look for a super market, a CVS, or a convience store in Colon, but the strangest thing they do have Amish people. I never expected to see the Pennsylvania Dutch in Michigan.

LOL. Want to know something funny. Twice now in Colon I saw this strange site. An Amish wagon pulling a motor boat.

This is another true story. Two years ago I got a ride to Colon with someone for the get together. As soon as we turned a corner and entered Colon there was a dog taking a dump in a front yards. I pointed and said, "Hey, welcome to Colon!". Smile

If you've never been there and you want a little tour of the town let me know. I don't know it all but I've been going there for years and could show you around a little. But there are many regulars there that would know even more then I do. It's the kind of gathering that most people want to come back again.

It's not far away so I'll see you there.
