Shawn Farquhar to Lecture at January 31st Meeting
Unless you’ve been living in a Canadian cave, you already know that Shawn Farquhar is a magic champion…and he’s got the credentials to back them up. He’s fooled Penn and Tell twice. He’s won FISM twice. It’s no wonder he bills himself as the “Magic Champion.” Go to his website and see for yourself his amazing video clips: www.magichampion.com.
We cannot think of a better way for the Dr. Richard Mossey Ring 41 to start the New Year than to feature this magic champion with the most engaging personality to lecture for us on January 31st. And it’ll be done via another Ring 41 first, namely, technology. Rather than risk traveling from his Canadian home to Milwaukee at that time of year, he’ll come to us via Skype. He’ll appear on an 84-inch screen, share his magic secrets and stories with us, and “yes,” you’ll be able to ask him questions.
We’re extremely fortunate to secure his lecture in-between his performances on cruise ships and conventions, including 2018 Magi-Fest. If there were an award for “The Nicest Guy in Magic,” it surely would go to Shawn, which he would place on his shelf next to his beacoup trophies for excellence in magic.
If you were going to catch only one Ring meeting in 2018, it should be this one. Be ready to go at 7:00pm. Make sure you have paid your 2018 dues, which are $20, but payable at the door. Ring members will pay $5 for this top-flite lecture; nonmembers will pay $10. For questions, call (414-352-9312) or email (Lynn@LynnMinerMagic.com).
Our Schedule and Location
We begin at 5:30 pm with a dinner and social hour at Miss Katie’s Diner, a quaint 1950s place to grab some good food, reasonably priced. And the wait staff are always hoping to see you perform a magic trick while you make their delicious food disappear. Set your GPS to look for 1900 W. Clybourn Ave, Milwaukee.
You’ll be only five minutes away for our 7:00 pm Ring 41 meeting at the Tripoli Shrine Center, 3000 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, WI. If you’ve never been there before, you’ll easily recognize the replica of the Taj Mahal. We’ll save a seat for you. For non-lecture meetings, visitors are welcome to attend to meetings free. On months when we have guest lecturers, the fees are $5 for members and $20 for nonmembers, although nonmembers will pay $10 for this Skype lectures. All members of the Dr. Richard Mossey Ring 41 are strongly encouraged to join the I.B.M. Be sure to look at our Meeting Schedule for 2017-2018, posted elsewhere on this website.
Remember: Our February lecture features Rick and Suzan Wilcox. Our March lecture features Suzanne.
With our notable Ring growth and sterling programming, Ring 41 has become the epicenter of magic in Wisconsin.
