Reggie Rice's Super Tour Gets Ink

Ring 50 Sergeant-at-Arms Reggie Rice, a.k.a. "SuperMAGICman," got front-page coverage of his successful tour of Southern Maryland. The St. Mary's County Enterprise put Rice on the cover of its June 27 Weekend section just before his final shows.

The article captures Rice on his 25th birthday as he plans and rehearses his new show in preparation for his "Tri-County Tour." Mentioned prominently is his involvement in Ring 50, including his dual wins of the Winton Carroll Award
for Washington, D.C.’s Comedy Magician of the Year.

In addition to tightening his 5-person illusion show, Rice's tour has paid off in other ways: he will be featured this fall at all three fairs in Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's Counties.

‘‘Being on stage in front of people is what I love the most,” he said. ‘‘When I am not on the stage, I feel bored. I have always been in the spotlight, and that’s where I like to be.”

Paul Green to Lecture at Magi-Whirl 2009!

I.B.M. Ring 50, The National Capital Ring, is pleased to announce that Magi-Whirl 2009 will feature a special lecture from the Magic Castle's 2008 Close-up Magician of the Year, Paul Green.

Paul Green's magic is designed to be performed for real people—not the members of your local Magic Club. His magic has been proven before audiences at Hollywood's famed Magic Castle, Beverly Hills' most exclusive restaurants, the private homes of celebrities and numerous trade shows in North America, Europe and Asia. Refined and polished, there is material that will be prized by performers at every skill level.

Green has been named not only the Close-Up Magician of the Year but also Lecturer of the Year by the Academy of Magical Arts at the Magic Castle. He was a columnist for The Magic Menu ("In the Trenches"), and his work has been published in GENII: The Conjuror's' Magazine as well as MAGIC Magazine.

There will be a cornucopia of magic for everyone—from the professional to the hobbyist. Cards, Coins, Rope, and maybe something else. Dynamic Magic to entertain, make friends, and earn some money. In addition, Paul will share his business expertise in the fields of trade shows, corporate events, and restaurants. You can't lose.

Material covered in this 2½ hour-plus lecture will come from his lecture notes as well as his DVDs on the Classic Force; In the Trenches; Live at the Jailhouse; and his newest release, Card Warp Finale.
