IBM Ring 280, the Mark Wilson Ring will be holding a virtual broken wand ceremony for our friend and name sake James "Mark" Wilson on February 11 starting at 7:30 PM pst. 

A broken wand ceremony is a ritual performed at the death of a magician, in which a wand — either the wand which the magician used in performances, or a ceremonial one — is broken, indicating that with the magician's death, the wand has lost its magic. It is a solemn ceremony and is done with reverence. Please let me know if you will be attending so we can provide a list to the widow. 

The ceremony will be presided over by Past President Bob Love.

The zoom address is

Vanishing Inc. has prepared a Mark Wilson Tribute and has graciously allowed Ring 280 to distribute it.


Please mute yourself during the ceremony.

In Memory of Mark Wilson

The members of Ring 280, The Mark Wilson Ring of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, are saddened today, January 19th 2021. At 4:40 pm, our namesake, friend and mentor, Mr. James Mark Wilson passed on to his eternal reward. He passed quietly and without pain, surrounded by his Wife Nani and sons Mike and Greg. Mr. Wilson will be remembered as one of the most influential American magicians of the 20th Century. He has left behind a legacy few in the conjuring arts can equal, and in many respects, none will be able to. More than a mere namesake for our Ring, Mr. Wilson was a friend who freely shared his knowledge, as well as, a second father to many of us. We are all better conjurers because of him, and more importantly, better people. Rest in eternal peace Sir, we will always love you.
