Re: Celebracabra

Hope someone can help. DVR had a bit of a problem and I apparently missed recording the final episode.....did it air on Thursday? Can someone point me to a source to view the finale?

Thanks for any assistance.

Would a member of the Magic Castle be willing to sponsor a Saturday/Sunday brunch visit for my 11 year old nephew (new to magic and has really developed a real interest), his twin sister, and their father? They live in Orange County and have some flexibility on attendance dates. Any help or suggesti...

I was lucky enough to attend the lecture at A-1 and it was great! Despite a long drive (110 miles), I wasn't even tired on the way home late that evening. Well worth it and gives me a new-found respect for a real card man!

I read it weekly, along with TV Magic Guide. In fact, I believe it was the first magic website I came across when I got back into magic about 6 years ago and turned to the world wide web for resources.
