SA Magic Championships, Day 2
For the performers, today was the most nerve-wracking, whilst for us regular magicians, it was the most relaxing. I have to admit to being an idiot - I didn't attend the Children's Magic Competition, thinking it was by child performers, and not magic *for* children... I missed a good show, I later heard. Nevertheless, the Close-up and Stage competitions were, for the most part, a total delight. Pics below, after the schedule of performers.
