SINGAPORE RING 115 - Dec 2012 Magic Meeting Report

Written by Hwee Lang

It was a relatively small turnout of 25 people at December’s meeting on 15 December 2012 at the Bayview Hotel. December has always been a vacation period and many members had gone on holidays with their families.

Bernard Sim and Victor Heng, the evening’s hosts, began by warmly welcoming Mr Kogi Oberoi, a guest, to our Club’s monthly meeting. Mr Oberoi is a member of the Surrey Society of Magicians, UK. Retired, he has been performing magic as a hobby and for charity. He recently moved to Singapore to stay with his son and daughter-in-law.

Next was an announcement on the Mac King Comedy Magic performance. IBM members could purchase tickets at $65 through Satish for the 7 pm show and lecture on Wednesday, 19 December 2012 at D’ Tent, Downtown East. Another lecture by Matthew Wright would be held on Saturday, 5 January 2013 at 7.30pm at Bayview Hotel. Tickets for members are also available through Satish at $35 each.

Sagar Clioski was all ready to take his induction test. He deftly turned 4 ’jokers’ into ‘queens’ and got an audience member to spell his way through a deck to the card he had randomly selected and also randomly inserted into the deck.

For the rest of the evening, it was ‘Auction Night’. Members picked up several good buys from among the precious ‘magic treasures’ offloaded by a few members.

At about 9.50pm, members called it a night. ………
