NO. 46, OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Seymour Davis Ring
Meets 7:00 pm, 1st Monday of the month at City Arts Center, Oklahoma State Fairground.
LEE WOODSIDE, Secretary. Email: WoodsideLee@hotmail.com.
Our June meeting began with Vice President Jach Heath as our featured performer. Zach displayed some very visual and amazing magic with a finger ring. He caused the ring to jump from one finger to another right in front of our eyes.
Zach then used his I-Phone projector to show a clip of upcoming lecturer Rafael Benatar performing his cups and balls.
Bob Caldwell invited everyone to participate in a creativity contest to be held in July. Bob gave each interested magician the same item to use: a mousetrap. The rule is that the mousetrap must be used as part of the magic routine.
Lee Woodside led off the member performances by pulling a rabbit from a top hat. Actually, the top hat was a silk scarf with a picture of a top hat and the rabbit was a silk scarf with a rabbit on it. The theme for the month was thumb tip magic. The rabbit Lee produced was actually the world’s smartest rabbit, knowing the answers to such vexing questions as: “If a turtle falls out of his shell, is he naked or homeless?”
Cassidy Smith performed the classic vanishing of a silk scarf in the bare hands.
Following the member performances, we discussed thumb tip magic and technique. A number of members offered suggestions, including Zach Heath, Jim Short, Bob Caldwell, William Rader and Lance Pierce.
