The theme of this month’s meeting was coin magic, although there were quite a few types of wonderful magic presented.
Vice President Mark Paulson was able to psychically divine a specific chore that was selected by a spectator from a list given to him by his wife. If only getting the chores done could be as magical. Magician Roger Sylwester presented a very nice three-card Monte routine with multiple card changes and surprises. Igor Dvorkin turned a spectator into the magician presenting a well-crafted ambitious card effect. Michael Jacobs presented an effect from John Scarne that was a real miracle card finder. Ralph Huntzinger presented his coins through hand magic that has been his go to coin routine allowing him to really have a polished effect. Rick Swaney performed a very nice formal sit down coin routine where coins appeared, disappeared and traveled magically from hand to hand. Sam Chamberlain presented a magic piece involving a magic growing penny that continued to get larger and larger. Secretary Jim Earnshaw made a signed coin disappear and then reappear inside of a locked keychain. President Brian Cook presented a portion of his Magic Castle act involving copper and silver coins that magically transported around the table. Magician Ben Eskenazi used a spectator’s phone to take a picture of the future, showing a chosen card as the only card face up in the picture. It was another great meeting filled with magic and friendship. Next month’s magic theme is “Magic with Music”.
