Ilford Magical Society: Classic Trick Competition 2011

Wow! This must be the closest competition the Ilford Magical Society has ever had. Twelve competitors took it in turns to face the panel of six judges and the rest of the members. Card effects, chinese sticks, mentalism and rope magic were amongst some of the classic tricks put forward for judging. When the scores were in senior judge, Brian Fisher, announced the results…

Three members tied for first place! Ian Smith, who performed a classic Dai Vernon Triumph, and previous winners of this competition Kevin Bird and Bryan Porter with a prediction effect and a Pavel rope effect respectively, could not be separated by the judges’ scores and so all were declared winners and join the ranks of past winners which boasts the likes of Nick Einhorn and Scott Penrose. 

A great night’s entertainment for all!
