LEE WOODSIDE, Secretary. Email: WoodsideLee@hotmail.com.
Our May Ring meeting was conducted via a “Zoom” session set up by academic scholar and Vice President Justin Teeman. The meeting participants were Derrick Beeson, Jerry Bowzer, Darryl Brooks, Daniel Buster, Ezekial Jump, Michael King, Phil Kalivoda, Steve Lancaster from Tulsa, Cassidy Smith, David Teeman, Justin Teeman, Brian Tabor, Jonathon Taylor, and Lee Woodside, plus two “lurkers” without video logged in as “Mark” and “Me.”
President Cassidy Smith used a rope to demonstrate a disappearing shoelace knot, an “instant” knot, and a William Tell knot. He also reported that he has been working up a “bigger wand” effect for his kids’ shows.
Darryl Brooks showed off his new “Supreme Slate of Mind” which he is planning to use for a mind-reading routine. Although the board is set up for use as a “no force” mental epic, Darryl intends to use an “Omni” deck to force the third item.
Justin Teeman performed an on-line version of Jim Steinmeyer’s venerable 9-card trick from his “Impuzzibilities” series. Everyone was invited to find nine playing cards and follow along. Sure enough, everyone arrived at his selected card after spelling it.
David Teeman placed silk scarves into a tube. He then produced flowers from the tube that were the same colors as the scarves. Finally, he showed that the tube was now empty.
Ezekial Jump announced that this would be his final meeting with Ring 46. His work as an Army Band musician will soon be taking him to the Savannah, Georgia area. We wish him well!
Jonathon Taylor performed a “pop out” coin production that he said he worked up from a video by the amazing Shin Lim. Lee Woodside reported that our former junior magician, J. P. Wilson was shown on an episode of the wildly popular documentary “Tiger King.” J. P. used some of Joe Exotic’s big cats in his illusion show many years ago.
