Profile of Special this week...
Hey everyone,

My friend Kent Gunn is finishing up the last few details on the GGG aka The Golden Gate Gathering which is being held JUNE 11, 12 & 13 2009 where there's going to be a bunch of close-up magic going on in San Francisco. Who knew?

Now Kent is way to humble so I figure I need to let you folks know the skinny - so here goes....

This is the third year that Kent and friends have held the world's smallest magic convention in San Francisco. I gotta' tell you - this is hands down the best close-up convention I have ever been to and I've been to many. Smile

This year they will have as lecturers:

  • Bob Kohler
  • J.C. Wagner
  • Jack Carpenter
  • Steve Dobson
  • Howard Hamburg
  • Dave Neighbors
  • Steven Youell

This will be three days of NON-STOP sessioning! They have also have hired professional mavens to run the precursor suite: The Millers!

Folks like Curtis Kam, Mike Gallo and the illusive Buck Twins have lectured for them before. Their re-appearance as attendees is almost a given.

Things to consider:

  • To attend you must actually be able to do a credible card trick, however no one will insist you do that trick.
  • You'll really be happier at our convention if you are an ardent close-up kinda guy.
  • All magicians are welcome. The people at GGG are not snooty, they just don't want folks to expect stage shows and dealers galore.
  • Byron Walker comprises the entire dealer room. I hope you come ready to buy books.


Attendance is kept to under 70 total attendees. Not by choice, they have been doing this three years now. That number simply seems to be critical mass.

This thing has a real west coast flava to it. If you live in California, it's probably the most eclectic convention you'll have in your backyard. It's all close up/parlor, all the time.

The youngsters session all night long, and I do mean all night long. Most who show up, do so for the sessioning.

Go to the Official Website for more particulars.

Your hosts will be: David Nelson, Dorian Rhodell, Theron Schaub and Kent Gunn.

Need a place to sleep? (Yea, like there is time for that) - You might as well stay in the same building as everyone else. Smile

We'll all be at The Crown Plaza Hotel.
