*Since the cost is going to simply cover expenses, there is no grad discount on this one. But remember, you can bring  a guest! Just let us know so we have enough food.*

2017 Reunion; Saturday, October 7th. Begins at 9am.

It’s that time of year again. The time when our people gather in large numbers to enjoy purple coffee, roam the hills of the Academy, and discuss fascinating things.

This year features the return of an old friend, an extremely special guest, and an unexpected performance.

We’ll start the day off at 9am at the Wizard’s Tower with a greeting, update on the Academy, and a welcoming.

We’ll even have an official “Opening of the Purple Coffee” Ceremony.

At 10:30am, you’ll have the chance to hear Jon Spoelstra, Acad Grad and author of NYT Bestseller, Marketing Outrageously.”  You’ll receive a copy of Jon’s book! This is one of very few marketing books recommended by the Wizard of Ads.

We’ll have lunch down at Tuscan Hall at our new Food Court Garden, and roam the property with our friends.

In the afternoon, you’ll get to hear from Roy and Daniel about the interesting future things happening at Wizard Academy.

There will be random whisky tastings, wine walks, and bocce ball tournaments.

We’ll do dinner at the Tuscan Hall Food Court, and then gather at the tower at 7pm for the featured speaker.

This year, we’re honored to have Virginia Postrel, author of The Power of Glamour, a book that we have used to support Wizard Academy content for the last several years!

She’ll speak on glamour and then follow it with Q&A and signing books for any who would like. Your payment for attendance will include a copy of the book!

Our musical evening will involve Daniel Whittington breaking precedent and performing for the assembled alum. It will be an intimate acoustic performance in the tower. He may or may not play Bee Gee’s covers.

We would love to see you there.

Your ticket for the reunion will help us pay for wine and food. It will also include a copy of Virginia’s book and Jon’s book! Our gift to you.
