IBM RING 250, PRESTO-DIGITATORS
FORT COLLINS, COLORADO
HISTORY OF IBM RING 250
On Saturday, June 21, 1980, a small group of magicians met in the Forum Room at the Square, 3500 South College Avenue in Fort Collins, Colorado, to discuss the possibility of organizing a local magic club. Several of the magicians present were members of the I.B.M. International Brotherhood of Magicians.
This worldwide organization was founded in 1922.
Membership is attained by making application, with the sponsorship (optional) of two certified members, to:
The International Brotherhood of Magicians
13 Point West Blvd.
St. Charles, MO 63301-4431
Phone: 636 724-2400
FAX: 636 724-8566
I.B.M. membership applications are available from the Ring secretary or treasurer.
The I.B.M. charters Rings around the world, anywhere a sustained interest in magic can be demonstrated. A minimum number of ten members is required to qualify for the establishment of a Ring. In a manner similar to the Chinese Linking Rings, a magical illusion wherein the magician links and unlinks a group of solid metal rings, a Ring is a group of magicians which are linked and united with other Rings around the world with the bond of a universal interest in magic.
Currently there are 42 certified members meeting on the third Thursday of the month (except January, July, and December) at the Congregation Har Shalom - ANNEX, 725 West Drake Road, Fort Collins, Colorado, 80526-5522 at 6:30 PM. Active membership is available to those persons, 18 years of age and older, who are able to demonstrate a genuine interest in performing magic as a form of entertainment. Youth membership is available to those persons 10 to 18 years of age.
