AGENDA

7:00- Business Meeting.

7:30- Svengali Deck Teach-In

8:00- Screening

SVENGALI TEACH IN

The Teach-in will be about the Svengali Deck (all paid members will get a free deck and, subject to supply, guests under 18).

Using the Svengali Deck requires minimal skill (though practice is essential). It is an easy way to force a card where sleights are not needed to carry a magical routine forward. Gary Meyer first encountered a Svengali Deck as a preteen and will perform a routine combining the deck with other props and then discuss the workings of the Deck. We encourage others to perform their own acts using Svengali principles including Double Blanks, Sven Pad or even the Magic Coloring Book.
