Good morning Everyone and Happy Monday,
First, let me remind you that the monthly meeting for IBM Ring 320 is tomorrow night, Tuesday, June 21 at 7:00pm at the Wayne Hills Baptist Church, 877 Ladd Road, Waynesboro. The theme is “Productions”. Please come and bring your interpretation of producing anything from “thin air”. I’m looking forward to see what you have in mind. Those of you that have not been to a meeting for quite some time, come on out and check out the new location. You’ll agree that it’s a great location with plenty of room for lectures, very comfortable seating and a great atmosphere.
Yvonne and I went to the Colombini lecture this past Saturday at Divine Magic and Novelties in Richmond. It was sponsored by the Richmond Ring. The host and owner of the shop, Hun Woo, really spoiled all of us with a meal that was fantastic. The lecture itself was great!
Since this is their Farewell USA tour, Rachel and Aldo thought it appropriate to open a bottle of champagne and have a toast of thanks to all of us for the friendship and support through the years, especially with Rachel’s recent health issues. She is doing much better and has been improving consistently. They both presented effects, some old, some new and all with the classic Colombini humor that has been Aldo’s trademark. I told him that I will probably be “stealing” some of his one-liners!
One of the things that I’d like to discuss at the meeting Tuesday night is an online Magic conference that is coming up very soon. The Essential Magic Conference is an online conference that hosts over 30 lecturers and can be watched on your computer LIVE. Registered attendees will also get all of the various lectures on DVD. I’d like to discuss with you and see if we can all participate in this. I’ll have more information at the meeting but for now, please check out the website, www.essentialmagicconference.com.
So, again, please come tomorrow night.(June 21st) There will be other issues to discuss and…wait for it…refreshments too! Can’t wait to see you there.
Yours, for the Fun, your president,
