I just pulled Bill Simon's "Effective Card Magic" off the shelf. This would be an excellent choice for a future book club selection. The book opens with a thirteen page chapter called "Observations." It contains some excellent theory stuff that could generate good discussion. Also, there are many excellent effects to mess around with.

Call To The Colors is what got me to pull the book. Good reason to practice second dealing. I had watched a video performance of a guy on the Paul Daniels show do the routine. Impeccable second dealing too. 

Lots of excellent material.

He was 45 when he died. I had to look it up because he didn't seem very old in this clip so for him to be in his nineties would have made him a time traveler! Maybe you were thinking of Paul Daniels. Apparently he was an active player of the video game Doom as that is where I got the information on his death from: https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Kevin_Reay_(Magikal) 

Regardless, that was an insane demonstration and it is a bummer he is no longer around.

I think culldavid meant that Kevin Reay died sometime in the 1990's [smile]

Happy holidays

Thanks for setting this up Ben!  It looks like it's going to be awesome!

I was one of the few that voted for a weekday due to my gigs mainly falling on the weekend.  It's tough sometimes to make it to the Saturday sessions as it is and I would hate to commit to this and not be able to attend due to scheduling...so unfortunately I will have to bow out at this time.  [frown]

If we have the book, are we still able to watch later if we are not able to attend?

It's truly incredible. Is his method the same as Rene Lavand's? Seems to be very similar to something I've seen him perform.

(I've moved the post to a new thread as this one is quite long and I don't want anyone to miss it.)

Hi Craig, 

I know you sometimes have to leave for gigs but even if you were to hang out for a bit, that's cool too. But I understand if you have other stuff going on. 

This will be recorded so anyone that has the book can watch.

IF we could direct all other posts regarding the start date/time to the new thread, I think it will help keep things more organized.
