Coming up: October Close-Up Magic Competition and Officer Elections

Close-Up Competition

Our Annual Close Up Competition event is coming October 14th, and we hope you all can show up to enjoy some great magic and support your fellow Ring members who have signed up to compete.

We already have a pretty full slate of competitors, but if you still want to sign up, please send an email to John Jones (

Here's the competition so far:

Standard Division
Ken King, Vikram Singh, Luke Adams, Rafael Delgadillo

Masters Division
Alan Leeds, David Martinez, Cal Tong, Dan Chan, Fred Lee

All contestants should check the rules and information on competitions.

Bring your friends or family with you to enjoy an evening of great magic. The more people we have, the better the magic.

Family and friends (non-members) will be the judges for the People's Choice Award, assuming we have at least 10 laypeople present. Paid members in good standing will be the judges for the masters division. The standard division will be judged by the master-level competitors.

The time and place are the same as usual: Yu-Ai Kai Community Center at 7:30 p.m. sharp. See you then!
