The Oakland Magic Circle is proud to have presented the first west coast lecture by Ran’D Shine, direct from Pittsburg, PA. on September 8.

This was a great lecture. We also had a special guest star, the legendary Messado.  Messado turned me on to the Chinese Linking Rings, and showed me how magical they can be. This is a great lecture, by a talented teacher.
