Of course, there were lectures, close up shows going on all day besides the stage competitions, but there also was time to visit with old friends, and many that we only see every three years! The schedule featured many of our friends:
Jeff McBride held his "Master Class" in the Houdini room.
Paul Wilson had a session on Cheating & Gambling in the Malini room.
Other magic notables showcased were:
Paul Daniels, Great Britain , who conducted a session on Max Malini, and presented the Malini Egg Bag with routines you couldn’t imagine!
Juan Tamariz, the brilliant creator-performer from Spain presented his "one man show."
Steve Banachek gave his lecture on Mentalism and was a crowd favorite.
