Happy New Year, everyone! I guess this can now be slotted under "Magic History and Anecdotes:" Who presented the best lecture or workshop you attended during the past year?
In my own case, I can reminisce over some real gems, bearing in mind that I was also privileged to attend the WMS, the SAM Convention, and Card Clinic.
So, among the standouts, in calendar order, I have to list Woody Landers; Steve Beam at the WMS; Eugene Burger's lecture & workshop; Jay Scott Berry's lecture & workshop, Henry Evans; David Parr; R. Paul Wilson at SAM; Nathan Kranzo; 3 days at Card Clinic with Jamy Swiss, Roberto Giobbi, Ken Krenzel & Herb Zarrow; the incomparable Rene Lavand - and the two knockout lectures of the year: David Ben at SAM, and Aaron Fisher at Denny & Lee.
Other pleasant memories include Vanni Bossi, Dan Garrett, Tim Ellis & Sue Ann Webster, Kevin James, Michael Ammar, and Darwin Ortiz.
For this name dropper, it was a VERY good year! :D
