I remember seeing Ger do his Cup and Ball routine at the 1977 Abbott's Magic get-togther he totally blew everyone away.

Flip Hallema is another great Dutch magician.
I saw and met Ger at an earlier Abbott's convention. We were both teenagers.
A real artist.

Did Maestro Copper ever release this routine in book form or DVD?

This information may have been posted already. If so, I was unaware.

"Copper contracted a legionella bacteria during his stay in South Africa and passed away 7 August 2020, he was 67 years old".

I hope his legacy has not been lost.

Ger Copper was, I believe the founder of the Dutch School of Magic.
Until his passing in 2020 this was the only current source for his methods of magic.

Are there any students who are members of the Café?
If so, do you learn his cups and balls routine?
What is the current status of the school? Are there lesson being given? Any remote master classes via zoom/streaming?

Those of you who may be interested, I found a source for booklet that Todd had mentioned "Magic From Holland" by Ger Copper.

GO HERE:

I have ordered this and will give a review once I have received it.

Also Ger Copper might have been a student of Henk Vermeyden.

Henk Vermeyden was very good, too. I saw Ger do the cups up on stage, can't remember where. Sad, the details of his passing.

Todd, no problem. Obviously I have become obsess with Ger Copper cups and balls routine.
And came across this booklet by pure chance while researching cups and balls publications.
I am eagerly awaiting it's arrival.

I hope one of his protege's will come forward and publish his routine so it is not lost.

The Ger Copper "Magic From Holland" book arrived.

Eight pages, hand drawn illustration involving balls, cards, coins and cups and balls. No table of contents. No index. No forward or introduction. No complete routines. Very small publication, a pamphlet is the closest description. I am not sure on the purpose or direction of this writing.

The cups and ball section is not even a full page. Two moves are described with three illustrations. One removing, the other placing a ball secretly.
Part of the answer is in this book. The book is incomplete, but a partial answer can be figure out. Read the book and watch the routine again,

Overall the book is fine and I believe most will get additional material out of it.
