Not sure if I should enter.

Might be nice to let somebody else win this year.

Joe, I'd really enjoy seeing your entry this year. No reason to disqualify yourself.

I just sent off my entry to Jack...

Maybe next year I will take the year off and let somebody else win instead.

haha!

But in all seriousness - go read http://www.thejerx.com - he is the best thinker in magic today! [and no - I have no connection to him]

Cheers!

Joe

Okay, you've thought about it entering, but you haven't gotten around to it yet.... Joe wants company, folks...it doesn't have to be a masterpiece, just some piece that you enjoy doing because of what you have brought to it.

Mrs. Shalom is quite adamant about my clearing my shelves of some of the magic books and DVDs. What better way to spend an afternoon than submitting an entry to a very fun contest?

Thanks again for putting together another fun competition.

I look forward to reading all the entries.

After winning last year - I will be giving the crown a good polish before handing it back.
