LEE WOODSIDE, Secretary. Email:

President William Rader continued his policy of starting each meeting with magic. Our featured performer for February was Gregory Lee, who performed a “heart transplant” routine. He magically transferred heart pips from one playing card to another. He credited Doc Dixon with the routine.
Michael King presented a mini-workshop on how to create a rose from a napkin. He said that it could be used for the floating rose routine.
Malaki offered copies of our Ring’s 17th annual Grimoire. Any member who contributes a routine, story, or other magic related item to the Grimoire gets a copy for free. Other members may buy one for a nominal fee. The money helps benefit the Ring.

David Teeman performed his twisting routine with a story about four brothers out for a walk. One by one, they turn around to go back to get something to drink. The kicker ending is that the backs of the cards magically transform into different soft drink products. He markets the easily mastered effect as “Refreshment Rainbow.” Steve Crawford stayed with the “love” theme by performing a wildcard routine where he changed hearts to diamonds.
Lee Woodside received multiple groans and much laughter from his “Bunny Love” routine utilizing the multiplying rabbits and thanks Katy for her assistance. Zach Heath proved that science can be every bit as amazing as magic. He used a large square of thick copper and a disk magnet to demonstrate Lenz’ law. Magical Michael Stephanic told us of the benefits of using a sound system to make sure one’s patter is easily heard by the audience.
