David Alexander's wife, Penny, was very pleased to learn that her late husband, was noted and remembered in the, "In Memorium" segment of the program.

(Okay: You asked for it, Pete!)

The show started.

Awards were handed out and speeches were made (but there is no truth to the rumor that Bob Fitch is still speaking--from his 2008 award).

Some acts performed.

The show ended.

The rest will appear in Genii soon! :)

Yep, and the first nominated as well.

When her name was announced as Close-up Magician of the Year, the roar of approval from the crowd was deafening.
