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 meeting will be March 26, the Fourth Monday as usual. We’ll meet at at Brann’s. Arrive at 7:15 pm starting time, or 6:00 pm for those wanting to eat dinner with friends.
March 2018 Program: Comedy Magic
Get ready to tickle your audience’s funny bones with a trick or routine designed to make them laugh. Cards, coins, silks, anything at all flies as long as it’s funny. And if you can amaze them at the end with some really strong magic, that works, too.
Please contact Ron Carnell if you would like to perform or MC.

Want to get ready for next month’s Magic Theme?
April 2018 – Money Magic With April 15 fast becoming a National Day of Mourning, it’s only natural that our April Program focus on our continuing love/hate relationship with MONEY. Your trick or routine can center on money, or address it only obliquely, but it should definitely bring out the cash at some point.
Note: We’re setting up a special Escrow Account for anyone who wants to burn a volunteer’s hundred dollar bill this year.
