Dan Lacey Contest at April 4th Meeting

Sharpen up your skills and compete at the April 4th meeting for the Dan Lacey Memorial Trophy and the title “Magician of the Year”. The winner will receive a rotating trophy, a spot to perform at the 2019 Ring 50 Magi-Whirl Gala show, and a free 2019 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.

Mike Hummer to Lecture at March 7th Ring 50 Meeting

   The March 7th meeting of Ring 50 will feature a lecture by Mike Hummer on Performing for Kids when you are not a kids magician. You'll learn amazing kid-style magic routines that work for birthday parties, churches, schools, and more! This lecture will teach you techniques that are EASY to perform, but is both FUNNY and AMAZING to your audience. These are routines that work as well for a small group of children in a home as they do for a group in an auditorium: bring a notebook and be ready to learn a ton of practical magic techniques for children. And of course, you’ll have a LOT of fun too!  
   See you at Holiday Inn Alexandria – Carlyle, 2460 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria, VA. Meeting starts at 7:30 PM. Lecture will follow after a short business meeting.
