A Message From Our President:

Well, the time has come for me to step down as President of this wonderful Ring. First, I want to thank the current and past board members who have served with me the last 3 years. Your invaluable assistance, guidance and support has made it possible for me to appear like I knew what I was doing! As a magician, I like to think I am in control and I’m pretty confidant when I perform. But being President was one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever done! And I would not have been near as successful without everyone’s encouragement. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!

The last several months have certainly been a challenge to everyone. But I think we’ve risen to the occasion and provided some great content for our members. In fact, if it weren’t for online meetings, we probably would not have had some of the great lectures we’ve had recently! And speaking of high-profile appearances, for our October installation we have Kendrick “Ice” Macdonald performing his world famous Magic Castle act for us, and after he will perform the induction ceremony for the incoming board members. This meeting will also include a very special raffle; here’s the deal: The meeting will go live at 7:00pm. We’ll give everyone 30 min. to settle in and chit chat. At 7:30, we’ll have the first part of the raffle. The first prize being given away will be a package of items put together from Karl Johnson’s personal collection of magic! He promises this package will contain many different items valued at well over $100! BUT, YOU MUST BE
CHECKED IN BY 7:30 TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PORTION OF THE RAFFLE! (If you’re not there, we can’t assign you a number!) We will then give away one or two combination prizes consisting of a $10 gift certificate to the Magic Apple and a physical prize as well, most likely a packet trick or DVD. This will be the short part of the raffle as Ice Macdonald has requested to start his performance at 7:45 SHARP! His performance is about 25-30 min. After the show, Ice will perform the induction ceremony for us! Once this is done, we will continue the raffle. This will consist of 2-3 more gift certificate/physical prize items, and will conclude with another package from Karl which he promises will be even bigger (and worth more!)
than the first package! Karl says this package will contain anywhere from 20-30 items I have no idea what these items are worth, but even at $5-$10 apiece, ( and I’m sure most cost him more than this!) this prize package alone could be worth HUNDREDS!! The best part of all of this is that it is completely FREE to our Ring members!

Thank you to those of you that have have renewed. If you have not renewed your annual membership, there’s never been a better time to do it!

Bob Thomas

President, Ring 21

IBM Ring 21’s Beginnings:

From the beginning, Hollywood has been a Mecca for top-quality talent in all areas of show business — including magicians. When such notable names as Floyd G. Thayer, The Great Leon, William Larsen, Sr., Chester Morris and Caryl S. Fleming found their way to Tinseltown in search of fame and recognition, they gathered in local eateries and nightspots for fellowship, shop talk and general camaraderie. Finally, someone must have suggested forming a local ring similar to one back home, and so began Hollywood’s Ring #21 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in the spring of 1938.

Today we continue that same proud tradition of sharing our mutual love, enthusiasm, and affection for the ancient art of magic through performance, theme nights, seminars, workshops, lectures, swap meets and shared fellowship. Our namesake, the great Caryl Fleming was one of the area’s finest.

When in Los Angeles, please stop in to one of our regular monthly meetings and introduce yourself to some of your fellow prestidigitators.

Our open door policy will ensure that you will be most welcome!
