Our December meeting was originally scheduled to be our annual Parlor & Stage Magic Contest and Holiday Party. However, our one-time junior president, Rob Lake invited the Ring 46 members and their families to join him for his full illusion show to benefit the “Friends for Folks” inmate dog-training organization. It was a no-brainer to take him up on his generous offer.
Rob Lake played to a full auditorium and kept everyone spellbound throughout the show. The show was also being taped for an Armed Forces Network special. After magically appearing onstage, Rob performed everything from linking finger rings together to vanishing along with a motorcycle and reappearing in the audience. I think my favorite effect was when he walked out of the auditorium and then miraculously materialized on top of a table that was surrounded by audience members, an effect which he also performed on “America’s Got Talent” a while back.
Following the show, we were treated to pizza, desserts and soft drinks behind the stage. Rob joined us after taking the time to interact with his audience members as they left the theater. We reminisced about our past Ring 46 “Pandemonium” shows and magicians who are no longer with us. It was a truly magical evening.
