February 4th - Pocket Magic Night

The February 4th meeting will be Pocket Magic Night. We want as many members involved as possible performing magic effects you can carry in your pockets. This can be anything as long as it can be carried easily in your pocket. Items like card tricks, coin tricks, thumb tips, balloon magic, silks, rope magic, ninja rings, mentalism, and etc.
Dr. Levin says he has 30 minutes in his wallet. Pocket tricks are usually short so we need as many of you to perform as possible. Contact President Tom Kee to be added to the performance agenda (
What’s in your pocket?

TLR Reviewers to Perform at January Meeting

    The January 7th meeting will be demonstrations of the latest magic items on the market by our Ring 50 Hocus in Focus Linking Ring reviewers. The TLR associate editor, Jason Goldberg receives a list of new items for his reviewers to review. Then when the items are received, the reviewers examine, tear apart, perform, and evaluate. Many are new items, books, DVDs, and some are revisions or modifications to classic magic effects. This will be a good chance to see a demo of an item you saw advertise and wanted to know more about it.
    We appreciate the time the Hocus in Focus team spends on their reviews. It is not an easy task to critically examine the hard work of others. Ring 50 reviewers are: Jason Goldberg, Tom Bohacek, Sam Brothers, Eric Henning, Dr. Bob Carnathan, Jim Flanigan, Ed Spells, Dr. Arnie Levin, Larry Lipman, Kevin McGuire, Louis Meyer, Noland Montgomery, Bob Patterson, Dwight Redman, Dr. Scotty Scafidi, Danny Selnick, Dave Shepherd, Michael Taggert, Rucj Uffelman, and Bill Wells.
    Reviewers please contact Jason Goldberg if you want to perform an item or items for the January 7th meeting.
