Our April meeting was unlike any meeting we have ever had and was filled with mixed emotions. Held on April 1, (April Fool’s Day) instead of our usual meeting day, it became an entire day filled with magic and magic books.

Dr. Jim Hoy, one of the last two surviving Charter Members of Ring 197, passed away in February.

Jim’s family donated his entire 50 plus year’s collection of magic and magic books to Ring 197. On April 1st members met at Jim’s home, and spent the day packing, transporting and storing a huge collection of magic. Mingled in with the work, with Jim’s family also there, stories of Jim and the early days of Ring 197 made the day pass rather quickly. Truckloads of magic and books were boxed and hauled to our regular monthly meeting site. With so much magic and books involved, it was decided to suppress our urges to inspect each piece and just box it and store it for now.

Plans are underway to hold a special day soon, to go over our acquisition a box at a time with each member taking turns choosing pieces for their own magic collection or magic library. The club has yet to decide what will be done with the remainder of the collection. Possibly an auction or sale of some sort with the proceeds going to a worthy cause.

Ring meetings can come in many forms. Although the traditional ‘Business Meeting/ Member Magic’ format will remain the norm for our Ring, it’s always fun to mix in a non-traditional meeting occasionally. We have a’ Christmas Party’ with no magic allowed, only music and singing. We have a ‘Club Picnic’ with very limited magic. We have an Officer Installation Banquet wherein even the spouses perform magic. So, no matter what the format, it’s always an enjoyable experience of fellowship. The only thing that would make our meetings better would be a visit from you. Come and see us.
