This short weekend convention has been organised by Andrew Wilson of The Palmerston North Magic Circle with their support and that of IBM Ring 160. Another headliner has yet to confirm and a number of excellent performers and lecturers have agreed to attend.

The convention begins with an evening meal and cabaret entertainment from our stars at a spacious Chinese Restaurant, China Town on Cuba St, on Saturday evening 26th October.

A full day of lectures follows on Sunday 27th ending with a Gala Show also open to the public at 7.30 p.m. in The Speirs Centre, the arts centre for Palmerston North High School. Monday morning will conclude proceedings with a last visit to the dealers and the Bring and Buy tables.
