How does a whole day of card tricks, magic lectures, magic shows and a lot of magic dealers inb one room sound? Well it sounds and feels like a magic convention :-) In my early years of magic. I attended many conventions - some of them back to back. But now I rarely get time to go to these wonderful events. This year I was fortunate to attend one day of the Golden Gate Gathering which is a local magc convention in Foster city. Kent Gunn and his buddies arrange this great 2 day convention and it is a more intimate event as opposed to the grand national events. It is still well attended by many top magicians and a lot of fun to attend.
This year on the first day, we had letures by Bob White, Lee Asher and Curtis Kam. And of course many impromptu performances. I also had the opportunity to purchase some books from Byron Walker who was one of the only 2 dealers at this event. If you get a chance to attend a magic convention do take advantage of the opportunity. It will be a very memorable event. Convntions do end up being quite expensive to attend but you also learn a lot.
Summer is a great season for having parties and organizing magic shows. Do give me a call at least 3-4 weeks in advance if you want a magic show for your party. See http://www.amazingvijay.com/ for contact info.
