Come meet Dick Oslund and have him personally autograph your own copy of DICK OSLUND: ROAD SCHOLAR right here at Abbott Magic during our 78th get-Together!

As America's premiere School Assembly Magician, over his 40-plus year career as a professional Magician, Dick Oslund has made a nice living traveling coast-to-coast, border to border, performing MORE LIVE MAGIC for more HUMAN BEINGS than ANY OTHER MAGICIAN IN HISTORY!

If you haven't had the priviledge of seeing Dick perform, you may know him from MODERN COIN MAGIC, or KID STUFF V, or ABRAKFOX, but now Dick has his own book, entitled DICK OSLUND: ROAD SCHOLAR.

This new 400 page book is packed full of great, relevant information about performing on the road as a Professional Magician, including Dick's favorite, time-tested Magic routines, practical advice and tips on performing and ENTERTAINING as a Magician, Dick's anecdotes about his wonderful life on the road, and much, much more. In fact, DICK OSLUND: ROAD SCHOLAR contains more practical advice for Magicians and tips more of the "REAL WORK" than any other book on Magic ever published!

And the best is, Dick will be here at Abbott's Magic during our 78th Get-Together for a special book signing opportunity in Abbot's Showroom on Saturday, August 8th at Noon.

I have posted some of the facebook pics from the Abbotts Magic Family facebook group at http://magicgettogether.com/ while our photographers are catching their breath (some went directly to magic live) and then begin organizing the pics. Mr Bordner asked me to thank everyone who helped make this such a big success this year.

A suggestion: attach captions that will ID the folks in the photos . Many of the older Get Together photos are very difficult to ID the lesser known people or even some who were well-known back in the day , but not so much now ... and as the years roll on there are less people who remember who was who and can ID the photos.

(although some of the photo galleries DO have names under the photos, so that's very helpful . For example: http://magicgettogether.com/galleryhtml2/1974gallery.html )
