Palmerston North Magic Circle (Inc)
from Peter Thomson - Convention President
Club wishes to thank all those who have registered. We are
looking forward to a GREAT convention.
forget to pack your tricks for the informal "fun"
competitions. And put on your judging caps for all the magic
we hope will be going on around the venue. The competitions
which can be performed anywhere (including on stage) are the
following: Best Card trick, Best Mental Effect, and Best Trick
of the Convention. The Best Quick trick and Favourite Three
Minutes will be held on stage on Saturday.
these competitions will be judged by Registrants. Because
of the logistics the other informal competitions (Best Assistant,
Best Illusion, and Manipulation etc) will be judged by a panel
of judges at the end of the competitions. Full details of
the judging procedures will be announced at the Convention.
With an unexpected number of entries in the Senior Stage Act
Competition there has been a slight change to the program.
Banquet: We are happy
to say that all extra seats booked for the banquet (and paid
for) are confirmed.
Code: The Banquet Committee requests that smart
dress be worn to this function (men a jacket and/or tie please).
Payments: We will not
be "credit enabled" at the Convention Venues. Therefore
if you wish to make any payments on the day you will need
CASH. Please remember that overseas dealers always require
cash and cannot accept cheques or any credit cards. There
is an automatic telling machine at the Westpac Bank close
by the venue.
The Tony Wilson Lecture:
We are pleased to announce that Tony has kindly agreed to
deliver a short lecture on the psychology of Magic entitled
"The Magic of Psychology". Tony's lecture
will take place late Sunday afternoon immediately before the
Convention Photograph. (This was to be the mystery event -
the secret is out!)
With only two
(2) weeks to go everything is ready to make this one of the
greatest conventions ever. If you have delayed registering
until now this may be your last opportunity!
