It’s only January, but if you’re already champing at the bit to fill up your travel schedule, here’s an early heads up for an event in November. The New England Magic Collectors Association is hosting its Yankee Gathering XVII in Westborough, Mass., on November 15-17. The biennial event places a focus on memorabilia and artifacts, giving it a different twist than many other magic weekends. After all, how many conventions also host their own flea market?
Not much is available yet in terms of the schedule and exhibitors, but we do know that Mike Caveney will be the guest of honor. In addition to being a professional performer and owner of the Magic Words company, Caveney currently owns the Egyptian Hall Museum, one of the oldest private magic museums in the U.S. Attendees of Genii Convention 2017 might also recognize Caveney from his talk shedding light on some incredible slivers of nearly-lost magic history.
If that sounds like your brand of playing cards, then bookmark the NEMCA website and stay tuned for more information. Registration will be capped at 200 attendees, and more details are due in “early 2018.”
