Thanks guys for getting out the word. It is a great event that needed to be continued. In fact Eugene Burger and Jeff McBride will once again act as hosts and Lance will be attending. The IBM is also keeping it a free event to those youth that register for the IBM convention so it's a win/win. Cheer...

Re: Beware Internet Scam Using Milt Larsen's Name!

She would not be on any list they would troll and her email is not listed anywhere on any type of magic site. The email she sent was her only contact ever with Milt. shawn
