The Secretary’s Report

November Meeting

Our meeting was called to order by club President Dan Jones and we kicked off with our round-table question. The question of the month was, what is your go-to trick. Answers varied from the simple French drop with any coin, to tricks with thumb tips, and a number of card tricks.

We welcomed guest Dreygon Hibbbler from Ring 22 and also welcomed three new AAMC members!

  • Kaylin Janiczek
  • Ramiro Gotierrez
  • Tara McAllister

Then fresh off his starring role as Harold Hill on his The Music Man tour, member Dalton Cahill gave us a live rendition of "(Ya Got) Trouble".

Then we had a special guest lecture with Ring 22 member Fred Lenter. Fred covered a magician's-dozen (relatively) easy to do coin tricks with detailed explanations and tips. He also provided great lecture notes to supplement the material.

These are the tricks he covered... whew! What a list! Thank you Fred for a fantastic evening.

  • Vanishing Silver Dollar (BOH)
  • Matrix coin trick with half-dollars
  • Dean Dill matrix with no cards
  • Skinner quarter and penny on deck
  • 5 coin disappearance
  • Two in hand / one in pocket
  • Coins across with sheel
  • Coin disappearance in handkerchief
  • Roger Klause multiple coin vanish
  • Fechter coins across
  • Han Ping Chien
  • Copper/Silver in spectator's hand
  • Copper/Silver with big penny
  • Duct Tape Comedy Coin Vanish

Finally after the lecture multiple jam sessions broke out with Fred and others.
