IBM & SAM COMBINED CONVENTION

"Sleight-of-hand artists descend on Louisville as groups conjure up combined convention," is the subtitle of an article the Louisville Courier & Journal entitled "Magic Town." Officials from the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the Society of American Magicians are quick to point out that this just might be the largest magic convention in the world. Some are billing it as the "Magic Convention of the Century." The gathering of 2,000 prestidigitators began yesterday and will continue through Saturday at the Galt House Hotel & Suites and other venues. "This is the first time in modern times that the convention has been combined," said Brad Jacobs, convention co-chair. "There's a friendly rivalry between the two groups. Everyone tries to out-magish the other guy."
