May meeting report

 

Our May meeting began with President Rodney Nordstrom giving brief business updates, mostly regarding upcoming events. These included the Riverfront Farmer’s Market (2nd & 4th Saturdays through the Summer), the Believe It or Not Show at the Riverfront Museum July 19, a possible segment with Mark & Gretchen from WHOI-TV, the teaching session and Houdini Tribute in October, and the Bradley basketball halftime show with date TBA.

 

Rodney and Michael Baker gave a review of Abracorndabra convention this past weekend.

 

The magic theme for tonight was Flower Magic. Michael Baker began by demonstrating and describing a spring flower segment he once used. This involved a small folding screen that continued to produce flowers and finishes with a shower of several dozen flowers. Michael also demonstrated a trick with matches.

 

Paul Buob came very well stocked with the many flower devices he uses in his stage show. This involved appearing roses, flowers to silks, color-changing flowers, light up roses, and a floating rose, among other really fun ideas and props. Paul also showed a few ideas with silks that he uses in conjunction with the rose magic.

 

Grant Golden brought a new Botania, which he recently purchased at a magic auction. This adds to his ever-growing collection of Botanias. He also demonstrated a Garden of Flowers shawl, and discussed ideas for improving the handling of it.

 

There was a bit of conversation, drinks and dinner, and of course a lot of magic following the formal meeting at a nearby restaurant.
