Sorry to hear that, Rob.

I'll be there from about 7pm tonight for anybody else who's interested in coming along (Johnny Wizz? TheGroover?): if you weren't there last week, I'll be easy to spot - I'll be the guy throwing cards around the place and generally getting in the way of the bar staff!

Turned out to be just me, in the end! Had some food and a drink and the barman (who'd taken quite an interest in us last time around, perhaps not helped by the fact that I would perform some little trick each time I'd go to the bar) asked if "the others" were going to appear out of thin air! I said that I didn't think any of them were up to that kind of magic, but I couldn't promise him that they wouldn't. In the end, I ended up performing for a few other groups of patrons, which was fun and worthwhile (as I'm always saying: I need the practice!).

Shall we have another go? The proposed schedule would put our next gathering on Tuesday 17th June.

If you could acquire and set up some tricks whereby things happen by themselves - the deck which separates, levitating things with IT, use of magnets etc, you could convince others that, although they can't be seen, there are other magi sitting there performing stuff....

HI chaps
I have been away this week. I was entertaining customers on a beach in The Hague on Tuesday!

17th June - annoyingly I can't make that night as it's my PTA meeting at my kids' school. Um - can I influence the day and say let's do wednesday instead?

Wednesday's usually no good for me. That week, I can do Monday, Thursday, or Friday, though... or we could postpone it to the final Tuesday in June (24th) instead?

Hi
I should be able to do the 17th or 24th. As a rule Tuesdays and Thursdays are best.

24th works for me! (same day as England v Costa Rica - the non-tv parts of the pub will be quiet...!)

Hurrah! Rob and I met last night and showed off what we've been working on (him with some wonderful new rope ideas and some still-under-development sponge ball work, I with some things I've been doing with ice and fire). We took a tour around the pub and found some willing spectators to try some things on, then played around with flashpaper in the beer garden (not just for fun, I might add: we were testing the flammability of some gimmicks we'd been building as part of an experimental trick idea).

Great fun, although I was almost wrong-footed by one of our spectators: a woman who used to work as a magician's assistant and asked all manner of awkward questions, while looking pretty smug in what she was seeing.

A shame not to see Andy this month, and I'm still optimistic that Johnny Wizz will be able to make it, one of these days!

Logically, the next meetup should be Tuesday 22nd July 2014. Does that sound good to everybody?

Guys i am so sorry - it's been crazy. Tuesday evening I was knee deep in tweets about the world cup (http://agameof2halves.tumblr.com/). 22 July should work. See you then. One big problem i have is that i don't read this forum very often so I'm out of the loop. must make better effort!
