Is anyone going to the Trics Close Up Convention in NC in November?
http://tricsconvention.com/

It will be the only convention I'm going to this year.

I'm on the bubble. I want to go, but haven't yet committed. I know I need to make up my mind soon...

I'm registered. Hope to see you guys there. It's a great little convention. This will be my third time.

Do it Anthony! You'll have a great time.

It'll be my first time at this one, I considered going last year but then it sold out. I must admit, to cut down on cost I'm not stopping at the convention hotel. I'm travelling up with my wife and we're stopping in Greenville SC a few nights first to check out a few waterfalls near there 😉 Booked in at Microtel in Charlotte a 5 minute drive away from the convention.

Alright, indecision over. I've registered and look forward to seeing y'all there! Like Paul, I may not stay at the convention hotel. Got points at Marriot properties and there're a couple nearby. Save some money to spend in the dealer's room! [biggrin]

Anyone else?!

The website is at: http://www.tricsconvention.com

TALENT: David Stone, Wayne Houchin, Marc Oberon, Mario Lopez, Jason Ladanye, Christian Engblom, Erik Tait

Scott runs a very tight convention. Event start on time and end on time. He doesn't tolerate "Do you guys want to see more?? Look Scott, they want more..." He tells the lecturers and performers this rule up front and he enforces it. The lectures are 1 hour in length.

The last show's audience is about half lay people. This allows the performers to show the magicians how they handle and perform for a lay audience. I think only those who registered somewhat early are in the room. The others see the show on CCTV in the room adjoining the convention room. This show is 2 hours in length.

There are not too many dealers. Many of the dealers only have a few products. Card Shark is generally there. Michael Kamiskas is often there. Pattrick P (the close-up pad guy) is generally there. 

There are likely some heavy hitters who are just attending too.

It's really fun!

Mike

Sounds great. Really looking forward to it now that I've committed. One of those conventions that I've considered for years, but always found convenient excuses not to attend even though it's relatively close by.
