They had decorated the stage with 3' (that's right three FOOT) diameter latex balloons (this is important) early in the morning. 2 were at each back corner of the stage. That's the setting. My final effect was Collector's Workshop's "Jumbo Sidekick II". I'd been using the prop for about 5 years already. Spectator (child about 10) had the wand in hand, and was told to count 1,2,3, and point the wand at the table, and the card would magically rise. Well, while playing and practicing with the prop, I'd apparently forgotten to switch it back to "REMOTE" from "SOUND" operation. They point the wand, I hit the (palmed) remote and NOTHING happened! Oh, crap. I need an out. Thought the reception was iffy, so I took 2 steps toward the table, and told them to do it again...they point the wand, and at that EXACT split second, one of the GIANT balloons at the rear of the stage EXPLODED, setting off the table! Timing could not have been more perfect. Looked like REAL magic! I walked over to "adjust" the table to another position (switching from sound to remote) and finished the routine. People talked about that effect until the next year at the same event! What timing. Steve [/quote]
