February 2012 President’s Message

Dear friends and fellow magicians,

If you missed the IBM/SAM Holiday party in January, you missed a great event, delicious great food and socializing, and also unbelievable entertainment.

First we honored Bill Brewe as the ‘Dean of Cincinnati Magicians – Emeritus’ for his many contributions to magic in Cincinnati. Also it was announced that Bill Pryor will reign as the current ‘Dean of Cincinnati Magicians’. Chuck Arkin also presented a certificate from the International IBM recognizing the 75th anniversary of Ring #71.

Patrick Thernes surprised most of us by demonstrating his musical talents as he sang several songs for our enjoyment.

Richard Osterlind followed with several mind blowing magic effects followed by a demonstration of his world renowned mental abilities.

On February 24th, Keith Fields will come to our ring for a lecture. Keith lectured last year for the SAM Assembly and did a fantastic job. He has a NEW lecture. Keith has also written a book on doing Children’s Magic and will be sharing his ideas with us. More information about Keith can be found in the article below.

More great magic will follow throughout the year: a lecture in March, our annual auction in April, and a lecture in May. We will also hold out annual elections in May. Of course we will conclude the year with a picnic in June, which will include the always fantastic War of the Wizards.

See you soon!

Magically yours,

Don Hinton

President – Ring 71
