Our theme for the January meeting was showing off the magic we acquired over the holidays. Jerry Bowzer showed us his four new Lord of the Rings playing card decks that he recently received. He also showed us an uncut sheet of LOTR cards that he plans to have framed.

Derrick Beeson said that his holiday magic was a trip to Disney World. He said the trip was made less pleasant by 40-degree temperatures and constant rain.

New visitor Grant Vinson showed us his Volume 2 of CARD COLLEGE, by Roberto Giobbi. He said that he has been working on card magic since July and has the first four volumes of the set.

Justin Teeman said that he had received the new 2-volume set of books called TALK ABOUT TRICKS, by Joshua Jay, which is a compilation of Jay’s columns in “Magic” magazine. Justin then led a discussion on how to keep an audience engaged prior to our break.

Lee Woodside showed two booklets that he received for Christmas. TAROT MAGIC, by Matteo Filippini, describes routines that can be performed using tarot cards along with doing readings. SOMETHING STRANGE, by Tony Shiels, describes several bizarre magick routines.

Michael King told us about seeing a performance of “Cirque Christmas” over the holidays. He said that Lucy Darling performed some magic in the show.

David Teeman performed his card trick about four brothers who each “turn around” from a walk to go home and get a drink. Each of the four cards in the packet turned over one at a time. The routine climaxed with the backs of the playing cards all featuring different Coca Cola products, even though all the cards had previously had Bicycle backs.

Those who had not yet enjoyed enough magic repaired to the nearby Buffalo Wild Wings for food, drink, and magic sessioning.
