I don't normally point towards other forums but there's a great review of the evening by Morgan Silver on Magicbunny.

Why have I only just read this thread? I've been bored senseless the past few weeks during my break from uni and that place isnt that far from me.

I'll have to keep my eye out next time.

Hiya Guys

Thank's for the kind words. It was a great evening. It was nice to finally put faces to names.

I believe we gained more in the small time we were together sessioning (is this a word?) due to the less formal and casual atmosphere.

The next Tao meet will be on the 1st May.

Hope to see you all again.

AnonymousZC try and come if you are free.

Can someone bring a couple of random books, non magic related please. Want to try out a book test to see how it comes across.

Thanks

Second meeting was excellent, only 4 of us this time due to weather and other commitments but we had 4 hours of intense discussion, demos, sharing of ideas and routines as well as a rather tasty chicken wrap thing & chips!

The book test went very well indeed, no props, no gimmicks, just a totally free selection of any of the four books I took along - as this was based on a routine published many years ago it shows there's still plenty of mileage in the older works. The business side of magic came under discussion in great detail so, all in all, another superb evening. Next meet: May 15th - can't wait!!

Mandrake wrote:Costas demoed a couple of routines, one well in advance of commercial release in a few week's time and it's an absolute killer! No doubt he'll tell you more in due course but if you want a truly hands off effect where a card is mentally freely selected and revealed to have been predicted well before the start then this will be the one!


It's just been released - NUM83R5 by Russ Andrews - click the MagicTao link to take a peep.
