We held our annual Holiday Party in December. Ring 46 provided ham, turkey and soft drinks and the members brought side dishes, salads, and desserts. We had a great time feasting and visiting prior to the evening’s magic.
Vice President Justin Teeman presided over our festivities. He introduced Michael King, who briefly discussed the magic of Sean-Paul and Juliana Fay, who have converted an old church in Eureka Springs, Arkansas into a venue for their magic and mentalism. Michael then showed us photos of his recent gig at the new Oklahoma City Convention Center.
We did not get the required six entries for a stage/parlor magic contest, but that did not stop us from enjoying some wonderful magic. Lee Woodside led the whole audience through a performance of “The Famous Australian Card Trick.” Afterwards, several decks of playing cards littered the floor, adding to the festive atmosphere of the gathering.
Jeff Davis began his performance by placing a Rubik’s Cube into a box. After much byplay, he showed that the box was completely empty and the cube had returned to his top hat. Jeff then showed us his routine for the Dribeek Die, where a large die is removed from a box and then the box is placed into the die. He ended by demonstrating the zig-zag balloon box he had built.
David Teeman and his lovely young assistant Byrnna performed a routine where David removed a silk scarf from a glass box held by Byrnna and placed it into a silk caddy. When he made a magical gesture, the scarf disappeared and reappeared in the glass box (crystal casket.) David then placed a green scarf into a box with a red and white interior. When he closed and reopened the box, the scarf was now red and the box interior was green and white. David concluded his performance by inviting a volunteer to join him on stage. She selected a Time magazine and chose a page from the magazine and then a word on the page. When David handed her a dictionary to look up the word, the page that should have contained the word was missing from the book. She opened an envelope that she was given at the start of the routine, and sure enough, she found the torn-out page with the chosen word circled.
