Andy T provided food for thought with his rope escapes and various excellent iPhone tricks. Stan showed us his version of Koran’s Medallion which is a great trick. And as a group effort we tried to understand how the wooden locket trick on the shelf worked (we got there in the end). I didn’t take notes at the meeting so if I have missed you out it’s not deliberate.
