A few months ago I made a post on the Magic Cafe asking children's entertainers if they thought there was room in the United States for another convention devoted to the creative side of Children's Entertainment. It would be held at a different time of year to Kidabra, and in a different city. One possibility that was discussed was Phoenix, Arizona, in the month of January. It can be a quieter time of year for many children's entertainers, following the busy holiday season. Arizona is also a beautiful place to visit in January.
Unfortunately, when I made this post over on the Cafe, it was deleted, and I was banned!! It appears that the reason was that one or two individuals who were involved with Kidabra did not approve, and felt threatened. I contacted Mark Daniel, the organiser of Kidabra, who was extremely helpful, wished me luck, and offered his support.
So that people do not start flaming on this thread, I wish to make it very clear that I am fully supportive of Kidabra.
I am bringing this matter up again on Richard's forum, to see the reaction of other children's entertainers, and possibly re-open the debate! It seems to me that with so many conventions in the USA for adult entertainers, that there is definitely room for another one for children's entertainers. What do you all think? JR
