Dan Lacey Competition to Pick Title Holder “Magician of the Year”

Sharpen up your skills and compete at the May 3rd meeting for the Dan Lacey Memorial Trophy and the title “Magician of the Year”. The winner will receive a rotating trophy and a spot to perform at the 2018 Ring 50 Magi-Whirl and a free convention registration.
All paid-up Ring 50 members both new and veteran members can seek the title. A panel of judges will declare the winner.
The late Dan Lacey was a president of Ring 50 (1999-2000) who inspired others--especially newcomers to magic—to hone their skills. The contest provides an opportunity to recognize the exceptional magic skills of our members. The contest was started in 2003 to honor the deceased magician.

Kozmo to Lecture April 5th

Kozmo, is acknowledged to be one of the top street performers in the world today. He will begin his lecture with a performance of his professional street act. This is a treat in and of itself. Kozmo will proceed to explain each effect in his street act. He pushes the envelope by teaching you why he has chosen each effect and why he has placed each effect where it is in his act.
You will hear Kozmo talk about conditions on the street. He will give you his thoughts on how to make your “hats” bigger.
Lecture will start after a short Ring 50 business meeting. Lecture will be held at Hampton Inn and Suites in Alexandria VA (5821Richmond Highway, Alexandria, VA) at 7:30 PM.
The Lecture is free to Ring 50 members. All other magicians must pay a $20 fee.
