Secretary Report – June 2015

June was our Annual Mile High Family Picnic. Instead of at the park we decided to try something different and host it inside to see if we would have a better turnout. We had a wonderful turnout and it rained a ton that night so we lucked out. Burgers, dogs, rain and magic…what a night!

Gene Gordon performed the 6 card repeat, collected invisible money for the misers dream, then a large coin bugger fell out of the spectators nose. A clear net was shown and eyeballs passed through it and across his massive chest. We all kept our eye on the ball! Dismembered lady was performed with dental floss, arms and legs were cut into pieces and put it back together. The floss broke and he never liked that lady anyway! Chinese Sticks that were connected in the back were separate and the tassel’s still returned up to the sticks!  Cards were shuffled and he performed a conman-flim-flam trick. Three cards were mentally selected at random, another invisible card was tossed back into the deck and was the only card upside down in the deck. The 3.5 of clubs ended up as a Jumbo card. A signed card rose out of the deck, vanished, then the signed card ended up in an Altoid box!

Jeff Jensen performed a wonderful Silk-in-Egg routine, which amazed everyone! The kids gasped when the hole vanished and Jeff pealed off the sticker! He also performed Andrew Maine’s newspaper tear. The newspaper was signed, restored, then Jeff passed out the newspaper as a souvenir! He did a cards across trick and ended his performance with a Signed Bill to Lemon.

We meet the second Thursday of the month at RiverPointe Senior Community (5225 S Prince St, Littleton, CO 80123).

A neighbor showed me a trick when I was in fourth grade and I was hooked ever since on magic! My sister and parents would sit on the basement stairs and I would do a show. I got my first magic set that year from Santa and I still have most of the tricks. I enjoy close-up and parlor tricks.
