Once every three years a Celebration in the Desert takes place in Tucson. Last time Vito Lupo, Greg Frewin, Kerry Pollak, Mike Michales and about 100 others hung out and played, learned and taught magic for three days in May.
We also issued toe tags to all who attended ---because it was three days of fun and frolic hanging out together swapping techniques, stories, lies and jokes with a keg or two.
We are doing it again in 2006 -- again in May.
John Shryock is heading up our performer/expert search, and our dealer room will be managed by Chris Myers again. Eric Buss is figuring out beer arrangements (long distance from Tahoe) , and general coordination is being handled by Mike DeSchallet -- who debuts at the Magic Castle this month.
Start thinking about it - we usually take over the whole hotel -- and present our gala show (open to the public) in a restored historic theater that Blackstone Sr. appeared in EARLY and several times in his career. A grand with history.
Planning sessions are being held at our usual hang-out, Williams magic in Tucson. Join us!
