Ring 116 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

History

Starting in 1951 the organization was affiliated with the IBM. But in 1959, it was decided by the members that it would be best to break away from the International Brotherhood of Magicians and use the local membership fees to create and fully support their own new local club, "Windsor Magic Circle".

In 1960 the Province of Ontario issued a Charter incorporating the Windsor Magic Circle as a Corporation. The charter members included Larry Jennings and Ron Wilson.

In the early seventies, President Johnny Ould [1] encouraged the club to get reinstated as IBM Ring 116. Johnny Ould was also responsible for creating a unique website for the club,[2]which is worth your visit. His "All Canadian LINKS Page" is a popular resource for things magical in Canada, and provides listings of Canadian magicians and Magic Dealers.

Past members have included Karrell Fox and Dr. Zina Bennett.
