The September workshop was presented by Jeff Brodrick. Jeff has interest in magic on TV and on film. He showed us excerpts of the following: “The Magician,” Thomas Edison filmed, February 28, 1900; “Magic Ranch,” 1961, starring Don Alan featuring Ralph Pierce and John Hurtz; “Cardini Festival of Magic,” 1957; and Slydini on “The Dick Cavett Show,” 1977. We enjoyed these moments of magic history and thank Jeff.
Tonight was Tarbell Night. Magi were encourage to perform a routine from the 61 (plus 32 added later) chapters of the Tarbell Course. MagicBob Zoerman performed Magical Bow Tie Knot (volume 1, page 374), Al Baker’s Handkerchief Through Arm and instead using a rope going through his neck (volume 1, page 385), Chefalo’s Knot (volume 2, page 358), and a bill vanish as a prediction using Buddha Papers Mystery (volume 7, page 202). Jeff Brodrick followed by magically dissolving a coin known as The Vanishing Coin In Glass. Another night of magic and fun was had. We also thank the performers.
