Welcome to the IBM Ring 280 website.

Ring 280 - the Mark Wilson Ring is the Santa Clarita, California chapter of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.  The International Brotherhood of Magicians is the world’s largest organization dedicated to the art of magic, with members in 88 countries.  Local branches of the I.B.M., known as Rings, meet each month in hundreds of locations.

Santa Clarita’s Ring 280 was founded in 1998 by a group of local magicians, and was named the Mark Wilson Ring in honor of the legendary illusionist, who currently resides in Valencia.

    Meir Yedid’s Bag Of Trix Lecture

    Meir will show you the props and tricks I carry with me and what I do with them in seemingly impromptu situations. In addition to those Meir will show you a card routine that he likse to do and customize for any occasion. For advanced card magicians he will show you a new unpublished sleight and its 40-year evolution.

    This online lecture will last around an hour. The premise and theme revolves around the wallet/purse that he always carry with he when he goes out. It is basically “My Bag Of Trix,” just like Felix The Cat.

  • Kainoa Harbottle Lecture 6/25/2020 7 PM
    An Evening with Kainoa Harbottle 

    Coin magic has a reputation of being extremely difficult to learn and even more challenging to perform. Kainoa Harbottle  is on a mission to change all that. Author, performer, lecturer, and all around nice guy.

    You’ll learn magic designed to look IMPOSSIBLE with squeaky clean methods, multiple climaxes and brand new techniques that you can start using almost right away. There’s something here for everyone; fun and easy coin magic for those just starting all the way to the knucklbusting stuff that’ll make even the most hardcore sweat.

    On top of the tricks, Kainoa will teach you how to transform close-up magic into powerful stand-up miracles. Whether you’re a close-up worker, a stage guy, a coin gal, or just someone who loves INCREDIBLE magic, this is event for you.


    Kainoa’s magic breathes new life into the tired phrase “right before your very eyes.” His performances represent his wish to share with others uncanny experiences—events that bring to life our desires. By making money appear from nowhere and proving that everyone can perform the impossible, Kainoa endeavors to make magical experiences meaningful to all.
