Hi I am not a member of the magic castle yet, but will be soon. I believe that the award ceremony is tomorrow and usually celebrities show up to the award ceremony. What I want to know is if you are a member are you invited to go, or do you have to be nominated to go to the ceremony? Does anyone here know this who is a member of the magic castle?

This year the answer to that question is yes--all members are invited. In the past it was a major event with celebrity presenters--and the whole nine yards--that cost a tidy sum per person. However, the overall cost of such an event is astronomical these days, so it will be a cozy little event in the Palace Theater.

Good luck to all the nominees.

If Paul Green wins a much deserved award for lecturing give him a big ol' hug from me.
