I'm not new here, but this is my first post; I guess that makes me a lurker. Smile My family and I had a small stage show in the 80s and 90s in West Texas and during that time I was a member of the Lubbock, Texas IBM Ring. Career forced a move and I lost touch with the gang. Since that time many of the magicians I got to know, and learned so much from, sadly have passed, e.g. Dean Ponton, Don Yelvington (Dean's business partner), Fred and Ann Story, Bill Mayes, and I'm sure others...sigh. Anyway, I'm within a couple of years of retiring and I hope to dust off a few of my favorite effects and start entertaining and annoying friends again.

I promise not to (intentionally) ask any stupid questions nor will I point them out when someone else does.

Hey Nick! Welcome! The Café shows me as a new user but I have been on the Café since 2007. I live in Lubbock, TX now... noticed you spent some time there. I am familiar with Amarillo since I was born and raised in Borger... you should know where that is. I am retired (2yrs now) and able to spend more time with magic. Lots of great new stuff and books out nowadays... but I have plenty of OLD stuff and books that are still great! I have been a member of SAM since the '70s but never IBM. I saw your post mentioned a Lubbock IBM ring. I need to check on that. Keep magishing!

Hi Leon,
Thanks for the welcome! I don't believe the Lubbock ring is active any longer. At one time Lubbock was very active and even hosted a convention, I think it was the TAOM, but that was decades ago. Is The Joker still open? That seemed to be the place where local magicians would hang out.
