The Courtright Get-Together was an invitation only magic conference held at in Courtright, Ontario, Canada from 1975 until 1991.

History

Was started by Mike O'Dowd as a way to get Stewart James to another convention by holding it so close to him home. The annual event was held for sixteen years. The attendance was kept at 35 because that was the maximum capacity of the Courtright's Castaway Inn where it was held.[1]

The year following the last Get-Together, Allan Slaight took over the gatherings and renamed it the Stewart James Get-Together.
