Day Three opens in the morning with a chat with local Dallas magician, Mica Calfee, who gives us his perspective of this convention as a first-time attendee. While walking through the Dealers' Room we stop to talk with an old mate, Simon Lovell. We discuss the quality of the shows and some of the performers and critique their performances. He also gives a rundown of the John Calvert Tribute at the recent Fantasma Convention in New York City.
During the Merlin Breakfast (for I.B.M. members and spouses who have had 25 years or more of consecutive membership) we sit down with Past I.B.M. President, Obie O'Brien and Logistics Chairman, Tom Vorjahan. We talk about the last evening's dinner show, some of the Big Four activities and the preparations for the "black box" theatres for the intimate close-up shows.
