SAMS Convention 2012

The Scottish Association of Magical Societies convention grow ever nearer.

A big part of the convention is still the three main competitions and I am writing to you all to remind you that the closing date for entries is the 30th of March.

Can everyone please bring it to the attention of all the Scottish Clubs.

For the first time we will also be having second place trophies for the Best Children's Effect and the Close Up brining them into line with the Stage Competition.
