29th New Zealand International Magicians Convention update

IBM Ring 160 proudly announces that the 29th New Zealand International Magicians Convention will be held In Auckland New Zealand from the night of December 27th 2008 to January 1st 2009, 1.00am.

Registrations will open during the afternoon/evening of 27 December.

The venue will be Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre in Mount Wellington where we last ran a successful Convention in 2001-2002.

The committee is planning a night before show the evening of December 27th at the official opening and the Convention will offficially finish after a New Years banquet prizegiving and cabaret.

President Tony Wilson will be approaching several possible overseas guests while he is overseas for the next three months attending three International Conventions and these negotiations will be released once settled.

We have been able to secure a very attractive room rate of $NZ110.00 per night (incl GST) for single or double rooms with registrants being able to book direct with the hotel.40 rooms only are available at this rate and reservations need to be made well before the end of November 2008.

A recent refurbishment programme has assisted in the hotel attaining a four star Qualmark rating.

The organising committee hopes to release convention registration details and forms in October this year and suggests for those out of Auckland magicians who plan to attend to enquire into cheap air fares before this October as the opening and closing dates and times will not change.

Help Needed

To all registrants who attended the Palmerston North Magicians Convention last October.

On the night at the end of the Convention it was not possible (due to time constraints) to award the Shield for the Club with the highest number of points (Ray Lewis Challenge Shield) or the cup for the registrant who was a member of IBM Ring 160 with the highest aggregate number of points (IBM Ring 160 Cup).

Subsequent number crunching resulted in the Palmerston North Magic Circle being awarded the Ray Lewis Challenge Shield and Greg Britt the IBM Ring 160 member with the highest aggregate (IBM Ring 160 Cup).

The Shore City Magicians Club had kindly upgraded the Ray Lewis Challenge Shield and this has now been presented and held by the Palmerston North Magic Circle (Inc).

Unfortunately the Cup that should be held now by Greg Britt may have been incorrectly given to another recipient so I am asking if all prize winners kindly check the wording on their cups and let me know if they are in possession of the IBM Member with the highest aggregate points cup (IBM Ring 160 Cup).

Your assistance would be appreciated as Tony will be overseas for some considerable period from mid June this year please email him: tony@twmagic.co.nz
