  • Dan Garrett Tribute

    It is with great sadness that G4G notes the passing of of Atlanta magician Dan Garrett, who has been attending G4G since the very first meeting in 1993.

    We are setting up a tribute page in his memory and will be collecting Stories, blog posts, photos, and other tributes to share on the G4G Tributes webpage.

    To share your memories of Ivan with the G4G community, please email us,
