Hi everyone,

A friend of mine hired me to perform at a gathering of his recently, and we got to talking about Train Tracking. I had performed it for him (Leaf) and several of his guests (Fruitfly and Centurion - GREAT WORDS), and afterward, he started chatting to me about how seeing it in action really made him want to actually learn it. He had the book and we chatted a bit and it was apparent that he'd have benefitted from actually having a bit of one to one, face to face practice - in an situation where failing was perfectly acceptable. In fact, I've chatted with a lot of people who are in a similar boat - they know what to do, but need practice with HOW to think as they work toward the finale of the piece.

So, I thought it'd be nice to offer a seminar where Train Tracking owners could get together, practice, and learn while receiving feedback from me as they progress.

I'd do this at no cost. Probably a two day affair. Must have a copy of Train Tracking to attend.

My question is - would there be much interest in this? And if so, what dates would work best for people?

Thanks and all the best,

Atlas

I'd be interested! How do we stay posted on this? Watch this thread?

Wait a minute….

So Atlas brings out a limited edition book – that is actually limited [wasn't the usual BS hype]

It sells out – and he doesn’t weasel a way to bring out a new 2.0 version

Instead he offers owners, loads of his free time and help – at no cost [?]

He seems to have brought out a quality product, been honest about it [limited edition], and gone beyond the expected in after care. Dear oh dear, he's giving sellers of magic/mentalism a bad name. He’s got this all wrong… poor lad.

I would suggest that Atlas bring out a video companion – that is discounted to owners, and new people can buy at a premium. As then he gets rewarded for his hard work…

But I’m not interested myself, as I’m waiting on the inevitable sequel ‘Truck Trailing’

I guess that just about sums it up! I may be down in London the latter half of this week - in case you wanted to have lunch or something. Shoot me an email.

And Sean, I guess send me a PM. I might gather a list of people who are interested and then try to coordinate from there.

Oh - and I quit Facebook, but if you want to make a post linking to this thread and ask others to share it around, it might be helpful in getting the word out to owners who don't really surf these particular waters anymore.

Yours, etc., etc.,

Atlas

Atlas, thanks so much for your generosity and commitment to your fans. I'd love to attend the gathering you describe, both for the practice and as an excuse for a trip. Are you thinking UK, US, or both?

Did this session ever take place? Any chance of a Zoom version while we're all stuck at home?

Atlas, I'm absolutely interested and thank you!
Look for all the world like you're counting the brain cells in his cranium.

Guys, this post was made two years ago. I don't think they are planning this meeting now.

Manos, that's a very good point and well observed. I don't know if it ever happened but if not, perhaps Atlas will consider a Zoom Train Tracking chatanooga session now?

I'm asking *because* it's been two years. Seems like this is the perfect topic for Zoom, and much cheaper for all involved than meeting in the UK.

Atlas's last post on the Café was almost exactly a year ago to the day. You might have better luck emailing him.
