Ilford Magical Society: Card Sharp Competition, 1/2/12

One of the biggest competition turnouts for a long while took place in the clubroom. Thirteen members shuffled and cut their way through trick after trick in an attempt to impress the judges. Nerves got the better of some of the old hands, but it was great to see some of the new, young talent in the club get placed in the top three. Youngest member Brad claimed third place with his skilful display ace productions and last year’s winner Ian came second with an ace assembly but this year the crown was won by Glenn Spiro with a display of “poker hand” magic. Well done to all who took part in a great night.
