<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>Appropriate as a lead up to Halloween, this week the Thatcher-Young Mansion will become a battleground for area wizards competing in the fourth annual Cache Valley Conjurers’ Competition Wednesday night. </span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>“The performance/competition part will begin at 7 o’clock with doors opening about 6:30,” said local deceptionist Richard Hatch, the event organizer.</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>The annual event attracts magicians from throughout northern Utah and southern Idaho to compete for cash prizes.</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>“The competitors are limited to seven minutes each and we will be pretty strict on that,” said Hatch. “It will be a variety of stuff and there is something for everybody. There will be comedy magic, there will be mind reading. There will be a range of ages, our youngest competitor is a middle schooler, his name is Clay. </span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>“At the other end of the spectrum, 70 years older than that, is Richard Cannon, who has won this competition twice.”</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>A panel of judges will decide first, second and third place winners and a people’s choice prize will be determined by a vote of ticket holders.</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>Tickets are $10 and available online at <a href=”http://hatchacademy.com”><span class=”s2″>hatchacademy.com</span></a></span></p>
