Sad News

I received word this week that one of our favorite magicians, Bob Nixon, passed away.

Bob was a showman extraordinaire! My campers adored him . . . my kids adored him.

I adored him.

I’ll never forget the first time my daughter and I saw him pull that rope through his body! We almost fell off our seats! Alex and Ben grew up watching his shows, as did many of my campground kids.

He was always cheerful, even when performing for the third time on a 100 degree day. And whenever I was in a “booking” bind, he was there with sound recommendations and a helping hand.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, as well as his magical community of friends.

Bob . . . you’ll be sorely missed.

Edited to add:

Almodarr and Angelique of The Magic of the Steelgraves will be dedicating their August 2nd Medieval weekend show here at Poland Spring Campground to Bob.

  1. I remember all the cheers and AHH’s coming from the Rec hall on the nights he was there and I did not get up there to watch. He will be missed…..I bet you will have to answer a lot of kids questions when they ask where he is this year! I saw it on the schedule.


  2. He did get the crowd going, didn’t he?

    I told Ben tonight, and he said, “Awww! He was my favorite!”

  3. :( We’ll miss you, Bob!

    I always loved his black board trick, with the face that would move and talk. And he’s one of the few that kept me interested no matter how old I got!

  4. I’m so glad I got down the rec hall last year and took some new photos of him. The little stinker called on me to help him with a trick! LOL

    I knew you’d miss him Alexz.
