We were very fortunate to host a lecture by Dan Garrett on August 29th. Dan taught paddle move tricks, coin tricks, card tricks, and mentalism. Highlights for me were a “Premonition” type effect that can be easily put together, a powerful book test using regular paperbacks, and a convincing mental epic type effect, but without the board. Dan killed us with Joe Rindfleisch’s “Jumper” rubber band trick, but, alas, this was not part of the actual lecture. He did have the DVD available for those wanting to work it up.
Our featured performer at the September meeting was our Treasurer, Michael King. Michael is an accomplished juggler, but for this performance he stuck to card tricks. He performed a very nice card-to-mouth routine, told a story about Jack Spade, the new age detective, and duplicated a participant’s drawing in a routine he credited to Alain Nu. He also performed a routine similar to Simon Aronson’s “Shuffle Bored” and told the story of “Kate and Edith” that he learned from Doc Eason.
In a brief business meeting, we discussed upcoming lectures by Danny Archer and Shoot Ogawa and ironed out the final details of our public show, “Pandemonium of Magic” coming up at the end of September.
J. David Teeman demonstrated his “Refreshment Rainbow” twister effect that he has sold all over the country. He then showed us his “Rattleback” device, which looks like a small propeller and reverses itself when spun by a participant, but spins normally when spun by the magician.
Lee Woodside told the story, illustrated with playing cards, of a Cowboy who meets several ladies, but finds it all to be a dream when he wakes up the next morning.
Jeff Gray attempted a rope trick, but after pulling what seemed like miles of rope out of his sleeves and pant legs, finally ended up pulling out his Batman briefs.
