South London Close Up Magic Champion Threepeat
South London Close Up Magic Champion x 3
Last night saw the South London Close Up Magic Championship take place. Each act had up to 12 minutes to perform Close Up Magic and after ten minutes there was a two minute warning. I have to say the bar was raised again this year and it was going to be a close call. In the end it was very close and the first two were tied - with three judges they both ended up with the same score. This was a first. This meant it went to a public vote and everyone was asked to put vote for their favourite Close Up Magic Act.
Glad to say Amigo's Magic came up on top by one vote. This means I have won it three times - a feat never achieved before in the Competition - another first. I asked that since I've won it three times do I get to keep the cup but got a resounding "no" as an answer. Many thanks for all those that voted for me and offered their congratulations.
It was a nice ending to the day as I woke up to find my car clamped and my phone line and broadband broken. Luckily these were sorted out during the day and was glad to have a happy ending.
