What Happened at the Meeting on Friday 17th July

The theme was "Rings, Ropes and Things".   Al Hirschel workshopped an excellent card trick for us, which had an important code to remember, which starts with the number 309.  What this means, we can't say on a public forum like this - you need to come along and find out !

David Whitson presented a chain of coloured ropes knotted together which, with a magic pass, became one continuous rope with several coloured sections.  He then performed Pavel's Rope Trick again for us, in which knots appear on a rope, then they vanish, then they reappear  - and they are genuine knots, for they have to be untied to get them off.  David has done this item for us before,  and I am just as bewildered as to how it can be possible.

Last performer was John Ferguson, who workshopped a card trick, "Wanna Bet" for us.  The spectator is so sure the magician has failed that they want to bet against him.  The kind magician won't take their money, of course, because the magician always wins !

We had lots of fun and laughter during the meeting.  We proceeded to plan for the Carrington Bowling Club show, coming up next month (Saturday August 22nd).

The show was well received by the audience, and the Stockton Club has asked us back again next year.
