The Holiday Inn in Coldwater MI has a "Closeup Convention" promo for two nights so if you are not staying in Colon for the convention (or simply like hotel atmosphere) you can save a few bucks at the Holiday Inn. Again, details are at http://www.abbottmagic.com or http://www.magicgettogether.com

This year's line-up is terrific! Abbott's close-up is always a great convention. The attendees are the nicest people in the world. They are the ones who REALLY MAKE the convention. The performers are a bonus.

Joh Luka is very correct. The attendees are the best. I have posted some details about lunch and the after hours parties on Abbott's website.

The Costello's have really gone out of their way, for many years, to help make the Abbott's Convention a great place to be. My hat is off to them!

What a tremendous event. Ed Ellis did a fantastic as a late addition to the program, truly a nice guy, excellent lecturer and teacher. Mark Oberon and Kostya Kimlat did a fantastic job also.They were great in lecture and performance. The one trick contest had some great effects as did the gala show. Thanks to all who helped make the open house/sessions such a great success, Can't wait til next year.

I second that! Greg thanks for putting on a great convention. This year's event was a lot of fun. The line-up was outstanding! They really delivered!

Gerry, thanks for hosting the after show parties. The parties keep the magic going long after the formal events are over. What a great way to get together with old friends!

I, too, cannot wait until next year.

Wasn't Brigadoon every 100 years. But you are right on about the Abbott events, once one is over you immediately begin looking forward to the next one.
