Ring 50 has Go-to Trick Night June 6

If someone asks you to do a trick, what is your go-to trick? When you are out and about and some knows you are a magician, what can you remove from your pocket and show them?  Are you prepared to show them some amazing magic? That’s the theme for the Ring 50 June 6th meeting night.  Come prepared to be called upon to show us your “Go-to Trick” from your pocket.
   The meeting will take place at the Holiday Inn, 2460 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria, VA following a short business meeting at 7:30 PM.

In addition to this we will be having our annual elections for next year's Ring 50 officers.   If you would like to be a candidate for any of the Ring positions please let Marc Carrion (Treasurer@IBMRing50.Org) know so that he may include you on the list of candidates.
