Welcome to Ring 211

“The Whole is more than the sum of its Parts.” Aristotle, Metaphysica written circa 350 B.C.

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 May 21, the THIRD Monday, not the Fourth Monday as usual. The bump is to accommodate Memorial Day on May 28. 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.

Workshop: TBA

May 2018 Program: Magic With a Message

EVERY magic trick tells a story, but some are clearly more explicit than others. Perform a trick or routine that delivers a message to your audience. Gospel magic certainly qualifies, but there are many other possibilities as well. Your message can be a serious one, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be.

Please contact Ron Carnell if you would like to perform or MC.

Want to get ready for next month’s Magic Theme?

June 2018 – Magician In Trouble It’s a common theme in magic, and one that audience’s always seem to enjoy. They love to see us stumble and prove we, too, are merely mortal. Perform a trick or routine where failure appears imminent — just before you turn it around and once again do the impossible.

June 19 The 8th Annual American Museum of Magic Gala

The American Museum of Magic in Marshall is the largest collection of magic artifacts on display anywhere in the U.S. Our mission is to inspire and delight the public with the wonder of magic by documenting and celebrating the lives of magicians throughout history. Discover what has been described as “the Smithsonian of American magic.”

The 8th annual fundraising Gala on Saturday, June 16, is your opportunity to help support the American Museum of Magic while also enjoying a unique evening of laughter, wonder and mystery.

The museum has put together a special deal this year JUST FOR MAGICIANS. It’s a full day of magic starting at noon with a magic show at the museum, following by a guided tour, then a special lecture by Kevin Heller at the Franke Center (just across the street). Magicians will take a dinner break with pizza supplied by the new Five Star Pizza in Marshall and then enjoy Kevin’s two-hour illusion extravaganza at the Franke Center. The evening concludes with a meet-and-greet in the basement. While tickets for the public are $75 and $35, this full day of magic is available to Ring members for just $25.

To reserve your spot (only 20 are available) go to https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3392278 and use the Discount Code “magicians” (without quotes). And please… don’t share this anywhere a non-magician might see it. This is JUST for us.
