Hello Fellow Wand Wielding Wizards

I am sending this information to all of my magic friends. If you know me, there is a good chance that you enjoy magic and love magic as much as I do. If so, please read on. After a year away from magic due to my seriously broken arm and wrist injury, I am back! This will be the first convention that I perform at since my accident. It feels great getting back to work. Plus I will be available to session every night. I hope to see you there.

The Florida Close-Up/Parlor Conference and Competition is less than two months away. It will be three days and nights of teaching, learning, competing, and sharing our passion for magic. This will be one convention not to be missed. Plus, if the performer/lecturer line up is not enough, check out the special guests. Jon Racherbaumer and John Cornelius. John Cornelius has not worked a magic convention in 15 years. If I was not already performing and lecturing, I would come to this event just to see John again. In alphabetical order, the performer, lecturer, and special guest list is; Jon Armstrong, Brent Braun, John Cornelius, Chastain Criswell, Mark Fitzgerald, Dan Fleshman, Antony Gerard, Paul Hallas, Jafo, Kostya Kimlat, Nathan Coe Marsh, Jon Racherbaumer, Dan Stapleton, and Jim Vines. This convention also offers great competitions on the schedule. Both adult and youth competitions with $2,500.00 in cash prizes and beautiful trophies. For more information go to, MagicPalooza.org

For those interested in my Idiosyncratic Classic Force, I will be teaching the technique at my 90 minute lecture during the convention. In this post, I will include two short video clips of myself performing my Idiosyncratic Classic Force. One for J C Wagner, who attended one of my lectures, and the second during my lecture in Toulon France. I hope that you enjoy the video's. Watch the one with J C Wagner just to see his expressions. They are priceless! Plus, check out my routine at Timeline #133 in the Toulon France video clip. It shows my force being done face up.

There is also a Magic Café forum titled, "A Card Force To Lose Sleep Over" if you would like to hear what others have said about my "Idiosyncratic Classic Force" and my book, "Magic Behind Bars" that contains my "Idiosyncratic Classic Force".

Antony Gerard demonstrates his Idiosyncratic Classic Force by forcing cards on J.C. Wagner 47 times in a row. His reactions are priceless.



Thank you for your time

During my lecture, I will not only teach my Idiosyncratic Classic Force technique, I will also show and teach many applications and routines to go with it. Plus, I will teach a few "Outs" and alternatives.

My goal is, to give those who already do a good Classic, a few additional ideas and routines. For those who do not yet perform the Classic, I will walk you through my techniques and give many ideas, techniques, and routines to help you start on your way.

I will strive to make this a lecture where all the attendees will walk away with new insights, techniques, applications, and routines.
