Let me open this post with a good-news/bad-news pitch… 

The bad news is, after their visit to the Philippines on March 7 to 10, David Roth and Mike Rubinstein may not be back in Asia for the next decade.  Though no doubt we will spoil them with the world-renowned Filipino hospitality, this is not enough to untangle them from their busy schedules and commitments in other parts of the world.

So at the risk of being accused of hyping up the lecture, let me declare that this is the only shot we got on catching it for the next 10 years.

The good news, Roth and Rubinstein are confirmed to arrive next month in Manila to share their magic and expertise to Filipino magicians.

Here’s the schedule of the workshop and lecture:


March 8, 2008 at 9 AM – 12 PM    Fee P4,000


March 10, 2008 at 8 PM -11PM     Fee – P1,500 (Early Bird – P1,200)

Venue: Greenhills West Clubhouse, Roosevelt Street, San Juan

Package (workshop and lecture) – P5,000

Rannie Raymundo announced last night that the deadline for early-bird discount is February 27. 

Please attend the IMC meeting next week.  Rannie and his committee will be there to accept payments.

I wish to see you guys at the Roth/Rubinstein lecture. I’m sure it will be fun learning from the deities of coin magic.

Stay magical,
