I am surprised you haven't booked yourself. That is what Jeffrey Atkins used to do every year at the I.B.M convention whether people wanted to see him or not. I always found it hilarious! But then I have an evil sense of humour. I still remember a noted mentalist leaving halfway through the show and I asked him where he was going. I was amused to hear him say, "I am getting out before Jeffrey Atkins comes on!"

S.Y.M. Race for Fitness in Indy: THE PRESTO INDY CANAL FUN RUN will be held at the S.A.M. convention in Indianapolis, IN, USA at 7:30 AM on Friday, July 15, 2016. The Society of Young Magicians (SYM) has joined the race for fitness this year by sponsoring this first-ever Family & Friends “Presto Fun Run & Walk” along the beautiful Indy Canal. Join Magicians Tina Lenert, Mike Caveney and others on Friday morning to walk or run our 1, 2, or 3 mile course. This is a Fun Run, not a competition. No times will be kept.

Free for convention youth ages 7 – 17. $20 for all others. Race bib, refreshments and the official race t-shirt are included. (Youth under 16 must be accompanied by a registered parent!)

You can support this event by attending the SAM Convention. But you can also support from afar - just $20 and you too will receive the race T-shirt. Let us know you want to participate by July 6th IN ORDER TO GET YOUR SHIRT! email samregister@yahoo.com. Register for the convention at www.magicsam.com

The Fun Run is a great idea--wish I could be there.

I understand we already have over 50 convention registrants planning to participate in the "Race" in Indianapolis. Still time to preregister to assure you get the race t-shirt, but it needs to be done today. email: samregistrar@yahoo.com with shirt size.

This race is a first for a convention, we think. Anyone know of another convention that did this?
