Out Of My Hat
David Garrard, President
Happy New Year! I hope 2010 will be a prosperous and magical year for you and your
family. I hope, too, that it will be a big year for the Louisville Magic Club. Already on the
horizon is a lecture with Boris Wild (April) followed by a performance by Kevin James at Pat
Miller’s The Magic and the Wonder show in May. Looking ahead to the fall, we are looking
at the possibility of joining forces with Kosair Charities for our Iroquois show. Harry Allen
and Daytona Magic will be back in December. There is also the possibility that Ridgeway
and Johnson will be here for the Kentucky State Fair. I know the Fair would like to have this
dynamic couple if the details can be worked out.
Last year’s Teach-In was a great night, and I anticipate the same for our January 12
meeting. Ezekiel Jump will be teaching a card effect. Ezekiel heads up the band at Fort
Knox. He will be moving soon, and this will probably be his last meeting. Roger Omanson
will teach a mental effect. Roger reads extensively, and knows the good stuff when he sees
it. I can always count on Ken Abbott to bring excellent coin material to my attention, and he
will do the same for all of us. Rounding out our faculty will be junior member, Spencer Korze
who will teach an effect with business cards. It will be a fun night, and you will see and learn
some great magic!
We are looking at having a Houdini movie night in February. Bill Kustes has access
to a DVD collection that includes clips of Houdini magic performances and film appearances,
as well as a recording of Houdini’s voice. Stay tuned.
I appreciate the great work Tom Crecelius does preparing and submitting monthly
reports to the national magazines. I hope you saw Tom’s nice article about Dennis Alm in the
November Linking Ring. Dennis tells me it is also scheduled to run in MUM. Dennis and
juggler, Marc Daniels are doing nice work in French Lick.
As the new year unfolds, remember that you are an ambassador for magic and for the
Louisville Magic Club. Practice and prepare properly in order to have your best foot forward
in a public performance. Please get in touch with me or one of the other officers if you have
ideas for a lecture, a meeting theme, or a way to improve our club. See you at the Teach-In!
Members in the Spotlight
LMC Member Tom Crecelius received notice that a set of cups and balls
that he made will be on display at the Museum of Natural Science.
“I received an e-mail, my acetablua (Roman cups and balls of clay) I made
for the cups and balls museum will be displayed along side those of : Gazzo’s set of busking
tools, the Sherwood cups and the French tin magic set cups. I am indeed honored to be included along side these great sets of cups.” Tom Crecelius
