Cliff, how was the show? Hay, next time you do a show, try to give us some advance notice so we can buy tickets and attend. I would have loved to have seen it. So tell us about your escapes and your emcee work. Also, who were the other acts and how were they received.

Peace,
Joe

The show was VERY well recieved. The only complaint form a few attendees was that it ran too long. I did the Emcee thing kind of like Robert Baxt did at the Cannons convention.

I opened the show with The "How many knots can you tie in a 25 foot rope in three minutes" bit that I got from Steve Baker. We were off to a good start, the adults and the kids liked it.

Jim Callen came out and pulled a very long rope out of his pants leg as well as a few other effects.

I did an old artists site gag, and introducted Janan, a 13 year old girl who did cut and restored tie and linking rings.

I juggled 3 tennis balls (which I can not do)

Scott Boeger did his classic temple screen silks routine and a couple of others.

I did a thumb cuff routine.

Bob Foutz did a brilliant rope routine

After Intermission

Gary Grayson did a square circle and a find the lady bit

I did a handcuff escape

Hannah Foutz did her "Mean babysitter" routine.

I did the French chain escape.

Suds closed with multiplying bottles and and a card story.

It was a wonderful evening.

I'll try to let you know more in advance next time. There will be a next time. Hopefully all the pictures came out, since we were fund raising for the venue, and I want to submit an article to the "Linking ring".

Break a chain.

Thank you for the kind words,

I hired a photographer to take pictures mostly for submission to the linking ring, but I'll post up a few when I get them, hopefully by next week.

"What's your drug?" she asked. "Hope" he said, "The most addicting one of all."
