Help!

My 8-year-old son is performing the Cups and Balls at a competition at the end of this month. He has asked me to help him reconstruct his routine, because the one he is using right now uses only one final load. I know he is skilled enough to pull off three or four finals, but he is NOT skilled enough to do my final sequence.

I'm having a brain-freeze here. Can anyone give me an easy final load sequence from the position described below? In the interest of protecting secrets, you can PM me if necessary.

Cups A B C all showing small ball on top. Cup A (performer's right) holds the secret to the trick.

There's a fairly straightforward routine with four loads at the end of [url=http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=99372&forum=6&start=30]this thread[/url].

Thanks for the tip Paul, but unfortunately I don't expect my son to be able to interact with this particular audience. It's not a magic competition. It's a solo dramatics competition and he wants to "think outside the box" since he's a junior magician and enter anyway. However, I don't expect the judges to be willing participants, so he's going to have to avoid audience participation for this performance.

The easiest way, from the sounds of it, is to use a shelf with the final loads already on them. So long as the shelf with the final loads is well below the table top (and the seating isn't too tiered), your son should be fine
