Here is another convention report that was nearly lost. It was never posted elsewhere in a timely manner so it is finding a home here on The Magic Word. Join me as I travel from Houston to Dallas for the 84th annual international convention of the I.B.M. where nearly 700 magicians came together to learn, have fun and meet friends.
We begin with a chat with The Linking Ring editor, Sammy Patrick Smith. Then it's in to the Dealers' Room that is decorated with the theme of the State Fair of Texas (which is, BTW, the largest State Fair in the country). In the Dealers' Room we talk with Daniel Herron, Dealer Chairman, and David Sandy, Convention Chairman.
