Craig has been banned from Blackpool and can no longer attend.
Unless reviews are posted anonymously, no one will do it because they don't want to be banned. There is no free speech where Mr. Lever is concerned.

And why would you be a "daredevil"? You said nothing negative. Have you ever sat on the third balcony of the opera house, where it's broiling and you're so far away you really can't see much? You might be less enthusiastic about the Opera House then.
The conditions for the performance of close-up magic in Blackpool are abysmal, with all the performers beside one another shouting to be heard above everyone else.

Broiling in WINTER?

What will it be like in Summer...? Or will the Aircon be on?

Hehe. I love that you think a place like Blackpool would have air conditioning.

Wonder if Mitchell's ban will extend to the next FISM?

There is an old thread on just that around here somewhere. There's no reason to rehash it on this one.

Thanks,
Dustin

The answer to 000's question is that no Blackpool Convention bans are applicable to FISM. Whether they are applicable to the FISM Europe Championships in 2011 is an open question.

I understand attendance at Blackpool was up to 3600, from 3200 the year before......so the organizers must be doing something right.
