finally, a taom convention which has a line up to announce prior to registration rate increases. I hope this bodes well for the convention and we will see greater attendance.

Mr. Henderson: How many folks usually show up to TAOM?

fewer and fewer.

lots of reasons for this - obviously - but no small part has been the failure of recent TAOM’s to obtain name booking in time to advertise prior to the increase in rates. TAOM has become a convention where the people who show up are the ones who show up regardless of who is performing. Back in the day this brought in families - with today’s prices fewer are willing to spend several hundred dollars just to hang out.

A substantial number of the registrants are wives and families of the magician attendees.
