Changes

The Committee endeavours to present the programme as indicated, but changes on short notice may be required.

Mentalism Teach-in/Workshop

A great evening with a large number of contributors demonstrating effects and mentalism props. A welcome back to returning Member Dave Lang after a prolonged absence.

Dave demonstrated two effects: the first being his memorised deck routine based on 'Pet Symetry' (for which he has provided an extract from his lecture notes, available only to Members - please login to view), and the second an effect in which a selected card from a packet of ten is shown to be the only one with a different colour back (based on the Hammond count - which he fully explained).

Perhaps the most popular effect of the evening was one developed by our own Harry Reeve, and previously demonstrated by him at the Society. It involves four glasses, four number cards, and 'prizes' wrapped in serviettes. After several spectarors have rearranged all the components, the prizes are selected using a shuffled deck of cards - and the last one left is found to be the one of value. Several Members, who had not been around when Harry demonstrated this effect a number of years ago or had forgotten about it, indicated that they now planned to add it to their repertoir.
