Marc Oberon may be a new name to some of you in Australia but the same cannot be said for his fans and clients back in the UK. Marc was recently crowned European Champion of Close-Up Magic at Blackpool, the world's biggest magic convention. Marc walked out in front of 550 people to perform a faultless close-up act which netted him the £1000 first prize. His competition success doesn't stop there. In fact he has now won all 3 major close-up awards n the UK. He gained 1st place at McMillan's Prestigious International Close-Up Competition in London. and the Zina Bennet Cup for IBM Close-Up magician of the year.

Marc has also been awarded top honors for his unique UV stage act and as part of The Magic Circle's centenary celebrations, Marc was one of five specially selected magicians from The Magic Circle who represented The Magic Circle for one week at Hollywoods famous Magic Castle.

Marc has recently completed a highly successful European leacture tour and his new effects BANG ON and ODDBALL have been selling in huge numbers all around the globe. This is Marc's first visit to New Zealand and we know you will make him welcome.

2. Wes Jack - Broken Wand

Message from Bill Watson
It is with great sadness, that I report the passing of Wes Jack, a long time friend.

Wes Jack, a life member of the South Canterbury Magicians Society died on the 28th of May 2007. Wes was in his 91st year, and only two weeks off 91. Wes was a staunch member of our Society and was still attending some meetings right up till the end.

Wes was a well known champion boxer, in his earlier years. He was also a long time friend of Gordon Rogers who died in Christchurch, on the same day as Wes. Gordon Rogers was also a life member of the South Canterbury Magicians Society.

A service was held for Wes on the 31 May, and Russell Hendry conducted the broken wand ceremony, in the absence of the President Bill Watson. Wes Jack will always be remembered by The S. C. Magicians Society.
