  4. Yes sir... the prize for 1st place will be Paul Harris' True Astonishment Set along with all the gimmicks besides 1 that I lost (that one isn't a MUST for a trick though). Second place will receive a high five for getting this far.

    As posted in my earlier posts, no part of this contest will involve videos. Everything is writing, trivia or opinions, tonight will also follow this pattern.

    Remember tonight at 8 PM EST, cm763 and Close-Up Expert will be competing for the PH True Astonishment Set.
