Information about the November Meeting

Please note the date of our next Ring 216 meeting:

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Regular meeting: 7:30 p.m.
Pre-meeting workshop: 6:30 p.m.

This is different from our normal meeting night, which is the second Wednesday of the month. The reason for the change is that the Yu-Ai Kai Community Center will be closed on Nov. 11 for Veterans Day.

At the November 4 meeting, we'll have an Open Performance Night with Wine and Cheese. You're invited to show us your in-progress or polished routine.

PLUS, the officers will share with you what's on the menu for next year: lectures, special events, and more.

PLUS, our own Fred Lee will conduct a pre-meeting workshop on his vanishing Sharpie routine called CGI (which is taught in our Ring 216 publication, "The Real Magic of Silicon Valley Vol. 2"). The workshop starts at 6:30 P.M.

Please mark your calendars.

Recap of Close-Up Magic Competition

We had an amazing turnout at our Close-Up Magic Competition on Wednesday, Oct. 14. 45 to 50 people attended, and we had a record number of 12 competitors, six in each division.

Standard Division
Ken King, Vikram Singh, Luke Adams, Rafael Delgadillo, Tom Collett, Aries Broadnax

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

Scores were tallied for the standard, and the winner was Luke Adams, who won both the magicians' award AND the People's Choice award. Tom Collett came in a very close second. And this was the first competition for both Luke and Tom!

All performers did a great job, repeating their routines 5 times to accommodate the huge crowd.

Thanks for supporting this magical annual event!
