Mark Wilson Broken Wand Ceremony

Post date: Feb 10, 2021 8:42:52 PM

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.
