To name just a few:

Larry Jennings (fun times at the castle & sushi nights and days!)
Jerry Andrus (when he visited the Castle0
Arnold Furst (remember him? A great guy)
Howard Hamburg

And then many more, especially during the mid 70's (and onwards) at the Castle. Those were some fun days!

OK, Michael Ammar is from the same town as my father. It is a small town on the VA/WV line, and I have met Hannah and him a few times. He also lectured for our ring.

I met Dan Harlan at SCAM a couple of years ago. Dan is a brilliant thinker, and a brilliant performer as well.

I met Joe Givan & Carol Massie at our convention here in east Tennessee. Another brilliant mind in Joe, and both wonderful performers. I also met Gene Anderson, Jeff McBride, Abbi Spinner, Ardan James, Ayala & Tonia, Steve Bargatze, Aldo Columbini, Bill Pryor, General Grant, Simon Lovell, Tom Jones & Rachel Wild, Joe Mogar, Paul Gertner, Michael Finney, Tom Craven, Scott Hitchcock, Fukai & Kimika, Steve Beam, Tony Chapek, Michael Eaton, Bob Bengal, John Tudor, Matthew David Stanley, Jessica, Shayna & Mandy Reed, Yegal Mesika, JC Doty, Joe Turner, Barry Mitchell, and some others at our convention as well.

I know Terry Evanswood, an absolutely brilliant performer and world class illusionist who performs locally (for me) in Pigeon Forge, TN.

From other conventions I have met Losander, Tommy Curtain, Eugene Burger, Charlie Frye, David Williamson, John Carney, Tim Conover, Yumi, Lu Chen, John Born, Dan Sperry, Dakota Rose, Jeb Hostetler (1973 IBM closeup champ), Tim Sonefelt, Robbie Moreland, Roger Louvin, Bob Sanders, Steve Bender, Jason Michaels, John Pica (AKA Big Daddy Cool), Lance Johnson, Harry Allen, Lee Asher, Bev Bergeron, Junge Junge, Fantasio, Mick Ayers, and some more, I am sure.

From my local rings I know Scott Cantrell, Tom Vorjahan, Mike Messing, Bob Knigge, Dave Vaught, and former IBM President Michael Stratman.

I have emailed dozens of others.

But my greatest meeting was with Johnny and Pam Thompson. My son and I were their personal assistants for a weekend, and I worked backstage with Pam during their act, loading and unloading doves and props. During Johnny's closeup act he called me up to be the volunteer for his Vernon impersonation. After the shows, he was generous with his time, teaching me whatever I asked. As a result, I have 2 lifetime friends that I will always cherish. My son stayed with them when he was in Vegas for McBride's class.....he slept in the spare bedroom. Johnny is truly the greatest card magician alive, and I consider him my biggest mentor, and they are the kindest people that I have ever met. That is the real magic....

The greatest part is that Scott admits that we met him too! There's no defense now! LOL

My uncle's third cousin's best friend knew somebody that shook hands with Doug Henning's stage manager's wife's hair dresser.
