The Gathering of Circles was born out of an idea. An idea shared by three men, Patrick McNulty, Dan Leonard, and Bobby Ashworth, having coffee one day. “Wouldn’t it be nice if people from all the various circles got together for a camp out and we all could just celebrate knowing each other. “Yeah, and we could share our talents and our knowledge and could practice our workshop presentations on each other and wouldn’t that be a great gift.” So that is how the GOC began. We just did it!
