Secretary Report – October 2015

October was filled with four events. First, we had Barry Schor come to town and do his lecture. He shared what he carries in his pockets to perform. Professor’s Nightmare is a perfect trick for young, old, and it is even a trick to cross all language barriers. He performed Match to flower, told us how to fix a flipper coin, how to make a marked deck, performed his Fred’s Mental Miracle trick!

Second, we enjoyed Karl Hein. Wow! What a great lecture. He did an amazing TNR card trick, changed $1 bills to $100. He also amazed us with his card handling, did a family trick with a change bag. With a BORROWED deck and a few shuffles he put it back in new deck order!

Third, we had our scary Evening of Odd. Rich Nakata had a Spirit Box that would tie knots in ropes, and bend steel. Sharon Nuanes had a scary story about a hat pin that stabbed a person. Anthem and Auria performed a blind fold psychic bit and she defined held up keys, lip balm, cell phone and could read the mind and serial number of a member holding a $20 bill! “Marticia”, Marty Jewell, did a card stab with a balloon, her Frank in Stein routine with an arm chopper! William Rader, had a prediction in a sealed envelope and played Ro sham bo for someone to win money. His prediction was correct and he won the money. Chad Wonder did roulette routine with staple guns and survived. Karen Wake made AMAZING food as always and told us a story by Edgar Allen Poe where the body was hidden in a wall. Mark Stivings did book test and correctly guessed all of the contents. Gregg Tobo is a human calculator, and performed his award winning Pi routine.

Lastly, we had a round table get together to learn a new trick The Code by Andy Nyman. Attendee’s got the trick, learned how to perform it and brainstormed how do other routines with the cards.

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.
