Palmerston North Magic Circle - Mini Convention

Labour Weekend 24th to 26th October 2009

Message from Ken Bates

Dear Fellow Magi,

I have great pleasure in inviting you to join us over this coming Labour Weekend for a fun filled weekend of magic, magic and...more magic.

Headlining the event, and direct from Adelaide's Magic Convention, is Britain's acclaimed Crowned Prince of Children's Entertainers, Terry Herbert supported by a cast of thousand's (well, perhaps not thousands but certainly a good number) of NZ's home-grown and imported talent including Grand Master Greg Britt, Bill Seagraves, Michael Woolf, Joel Fenton, Zappo and Pippty-pop (aka balloonologist extraordinaire, Pip Milford-Hughes).

This convention is all about sharing and learning, and of course, having fun in a relaxing and supportive environment. There will be no competitions but plenty of opportunity to mix 'n' mingle.

" Want to show that routine you've been working on? - just grab a table, plonk
yourself down and mystify those around you.

" Need help with apple or tulip twist? Sidle up to Pip.

" Can't get those cards across - ask Bill.

" Want to keep your balls aloft for longer? Check out your technique with Joel,
Norm or anyone else who happens to be better than you!

Here's your opportunity to learn from the best - or, if you happen to have that special skill or knowledge, here's your chance to share.

So don't waste anymore time. Complete the enclosed registration form, return it to us with payment (or pay by internet banking if you prefer) and we'll be in touch with more details of this not-to-be-missed Labour Weekend Event. We've already secured some great motel deals (see back page), so there really is no excuse.

We're really looking forward to seeing you here.....
