Dear Cubmaster

Dear Cubmaster,

Thank you for taking the time to read this special message. I was a Cub Scout in my elementary school days, participating in the Pinewood Derby and other such events, and can honestly say that being a Scout helped mold my moral compass.

The reason why I’m writing what I intend to be a personal message to you is because I want to give you several reasons as to how I am the BEST choice for your blue & Gold Banquet.

First, because I was a Scout, I understand how Blue & Gold Banquets are set up. I understand the fact that the banquets’ purpose is not only that of fellowship among the Scouts and their families, but also to honor and celebrate those who have earned awards and thus put forward through those awards the critical values and beliefs of Scouts.

Understanding the reasons behind the banquets as well as the agenda, how the events are run, gives me an advantage: when I arrive, I am a self-contained package…I need no assistance with bringing my equipment inside, nor do I need help setting anything up. I don’t even need a sound system or microphone, because I provide my own state-of-the-art PA system and mic, with no extra charge to you!

With my show, the only thing I need is a space to perform, and an electrical outlet to plug in my Bose sound system. That’s it! No headaches, no special lighting, no dressing rooms with green M&Ms…easy, guaranteed! (more on that later!)

Also, in addition to keeping your Scouts and their families laughing, amazed, and engaged with mind-blowing magic, I also sprinkle some messages about the morals that Scouts hold dear to their hearts. While the primary purpose of the show is pure fun, I do enjoy adding just a little dash here and a small pinch there to reinforce some of the most impactful Scouting beliefs. I’ve found Blue & Gold audiences really appreciate this, because it tells them I understand!

Secondly, I understand the mindset and psychology of children, specifically the ages of Scouts. Therefore, the magic and humor I present is geared towards that age group. While I am a magician, I am NOT a “rabbit in the hat” or “puppet” kind of guy for Blue & Gold banquets. The routines I present at Blue & Gold banquets are the ones I present to older children at elementary schools.

In fact, after nearly 20 years of presenting programs to children of all ages across North America, I have been praised by all of my clients for understanding child psychology and knowing how to effortlessly adapt to the ages of guests in my audiences.

Thirdly, because Blue & Gold banquets are events with families, I understand how to hold the attention of not only the Scouts but also their siblings (both younger and older) as well as parents. In short, my Blue & Gold banquet magic shows are designed to entertain families. Adults enjoy my work just as much as the children, and all of this is done with NO off-color or inappropriate humor. Sadly, too many so-called “children’s entertainers” out there like to sprinkle in some ‘salty’ humor in an attempt to curry favor with the adults. Not me – I guarantee that with my presentations, you’re getting a clean, family-friendly show filled with modern, fun magic.

In fact, I feel so strongly about the quality of my shows that I offer a “Better-Than-Money-Back-Guarantee,” meaning if you feel that I failed to deliver on my promise to present a fun-filled, amazing show that captivates all ages, not only will you receive a full refund, but I will donate $250 to your pack’s treasury. I’m also proud to say that after nearly 20 years of professional work and THOUSANDS of shows, I’ve NEVER had a single client take me up on my guarantee!

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
