Welcome to the Web site for Ring 211! Our aim is to offer a more informative, more interactive site to help everyone better promote our shared love of magic. We sincerely hope you will join us in this ongoing goal.
Our Next Meeting
Our next Ring meeting will be on July 22, 7:15pm to 10pm, at Brann’s Steakhouse, 4157 S. Division, in Wyoming.
June 2019 Program: Mentalism or Mental Magic
Dust off those Zener cards and multiple-out envelopes, as you prepare yourself to utterly amaze your Ring 211 audience with a demonstration of your mental prowess. Telepathy, clairvoyance, telekinesis, it’s all fair game in July.
What’s the difference between Mentalism and Mental Magic? Mentalism can be too long and potentially boring because the performer wants us to believe he’s really psychic. Mental Magic is usually faster paced and more fun because we all know it’s just a trick. You can pick which one you want to do at July’s Ring meeting?
Please contact Ron Carnell if you would like to perform or MC.

Fish in the lake, join members who have brought yard games, and just mingle with fellow magi. Some may want to mingle and show a trick or two to bystanders.
Please bring your own yard or camp chairs.
Grilling of burgers and hot dogs begins around 4 PM. Club furnishes the burgers, hot dogs, pop, and eating utensils. Please bring a dish to pass such as a salad or dessert. P. J. brings the watermelon.

September 23, 2019 Program: This Case is Open & Close
There are thousands of routines we can put into the middle of a show, but only a select few are strong enough to be Openers or Closers. Your Opening trick has to immediately grab their attention and set the tone for everything that follows, while your Closer needs to be powerful and memorable (because it WILL be the thing they remember the best). This month, we focus on the best of the best.
