Thanks for the info!

I just moved to the area (Arlington, VA) from the midwest (Ohio) last month. So I'll definately be sure to check out this convention. Can I attend without being an IBM member? I've been a SAM member for about 8 years, but never joined the IBM for some reason.

Also, do you know about any other magic stuff in the area? As I just moved here I still have yet to find the info on the local clubs and whatnot. If you know anything please let me know.


P.S. Do you know anyone going up to the New England Magic Conference (NEOCOM) this weekend? I just heard about it today, but I'm considering throwing together some last minute plans to try to attend.
