Our featured performer for May was J. David Teeman. David told about his recent performance experience with his “Refreshment Rainbow” twisting effect that he developed. He then showed a paddle move trick that he came up with using straws from the Taco Casa restaurant.

Our theme for May was gambling routines and bar bets. Justin Teeman led off by having an audience member cut to the tens. He then showed us the venerable “I’ll bet you that the next card I turn over will be your card” scam.

Cassidy Smith showed us a poor man’s cups and balls that he had recently purchased. It is basically a “wild card” trick with a cups and balls theme.

Derrick Beeson reviewed the “Sucker Punch” trick that he had purchased. He said that it was a really good way to perform a “3-fly” effect using poker chips. The props provided were quite nice and the price was very affordable. He then showed us a card through window trick that he gave only two stars out of five.

Terry “Mr. T.Lo” Losawyer showed us how he bets that he can remove the ring from a loop of string that is held between the participant’s fingers. He said that he has won more than a few drinks with that one.

Ezekial Jump demonstrated how he could deal himself four aces using bottom dealing. He then outdid himself by dealing himself a straight flush from the middle of the deck.

We could have all sworn that Michael King bet that he could drink thirty six beers in 15 minutes. What he actually said was that he could drink “a third of six beers” in 15 minutes. However, our minds heard this as 36.

Mike Stelzer showed off the newest member of his vent act, a young Star Trek captain. He then performed an escape from a regulation straight jacket.

Lee Woodside explained the rules for a face-up poker game and challenged people to say whether they would want to go first or second in the “heads up” game. No one got this right, so Lee explained how the first player could always win.

President Cassidy Smith awarded the trophies from our December stage and parlor magic contest. Third place went to Lee Woodside, second place to Terry Losawyer, and first place to Michael Stephanic.

The names of all the evening’s performers were placed into a hat and one name drawn to receive a prize. Lee Woodside won the “Jumbo Twisted Sisters,” by John Bannon.
