Michael Close Workshop/Retreat

Postby Michael Close » August 18th, 2017, 9:29 am

If you’re not already aware of it, I’d like to bring to your attention a different type of magic gathering: small, relaxing, with an emphasis on training, coaching, and laughs.

Our first workshop/retreat was in May with Johnny Thompson as the special guest. It was a resounding success. Our next one is in October. Jason England and Michael Weber are the special guests. I’m really looking forward to it.

Space is limited. For more information, go here:

Thanks.

Hi Michael,
Can you tell us a little about the accommodations at the retreat (other than its expected luxury) as well as the area? What else is in and around Owen Sound? Thanks.

The lodge is gorgeous, but it is a lodge, not a hotel. Most "campers" will have a roommate. We provide all the food and drink.

Owen Sound is a nice little town, but not particularly a tourist attraction. Those coming to the workshop are not coming to sight-see. The grounds of the lodge are great.

Here's a link to photos from the Johnny Thompson workshop. It will give you a feel for the lodge and the environs.

This is a very beautiful part of Ontario. The area is perfect for this kind of event, somewhat like the vibe of the old Ibidem events.
