Congrats, John! Thank you for sharing a great tip! In California we would send it to the principal rather than the superintendent, who is over several schools. Postage has gotten so high I must admit that I didn't send anything out. But you encourage me.

Montana may have a different structure. In many instances the superintendent may have one -- or several -- schools. Sometimes I think superintendent is just a fancy name for principal -- but that's the way it is.

BigBroGeorge, my website is www.johndmagician.com I hope to have your gorilla featured there shortly! You're right about the distance. I don't know anybody else who'd drive 325 miles to do a single show...but I do!

Fortunately I have the option of flying to most shows that are more than a 2 hour drive. Lots of airports in California. However, I may drive with a friend for a day at one school in Los Angeles. Then stay for the Magic Castle. Anyone out there a member who can get me in?
