On November 2 to 4, 2012 the 2012 Tri-City 3 of Clubs Convention presented 6 amazing lectures, 3 incredible stage shows and featured guest lecturer, Las Vegas Pro, Joe Monti for the first ever Tony Eng Memorial Lecture. This lecture was held as a tribute to Tony Eng, beloved magician of Victoria, BC, who practised the venerable arts of hocus-pocus and legerdemain. Tony displayed a showman’s verve and a craftsman’s precision, whether as a stage performer, as a close-up magician or as a proprietor of a magic emporium in downtown Victoria. Tony Eng, “Ambassador of Magic” entertained audiences for over five decades.

Tony Eng Memorial Lecture: Joe Monti

Joe Monti was sponsored through a donation from Magicana’s Tony Eng Youth Fund¬†and Kent Wong of RJK Entertainment.

Joe’s two-hour lecture included acquainting members with the various techniques of magic, comedy, sleight of hand and improvisation. He also performed in the close-up show, the Gala Evening Stage show. Great job, Joe!

Magicana also donated A Cut Above by Msgr. Vincent Foy, which served as the grand prize in the One Hand Cut-A-Thon contest. The Essential Stewart James, How Gamblers Win and A Grand Expose were offered as prizes for the raffle draw. As a result of these prizes, the Victoria Magic Circle were able to sell more tickets and raise funds to help in covering the cost of the convention.

We are pleased that we were able to support the 2012 Tri-City 3 of Clubs Convention with both the bursary and with our ¬†publications – ¬†fittingly, in Tony’s hometown. Congratulations to the Victoria Magic Circle for a successful convention!
