The Cape Magicians Circle received certificates from SAMCO, The Johannesburg Magic Circle and the East Rand Magic Society.
Also receiving congratulations from Bloemfontein Magic Club.
We also received Letters of Congratulation from The International Brotherhood of Magicians and The Magic Circle (London)- did you know that David Berglas was made an Honorary Vice President of The Cape Magicians Circle over 30 years ago.
So, we were all really honoured for all the congratulations that the Circle received and thank each and every one of you.

The evening drew to a close with people retiring after the lecture for a last bite to eat and heading to their homes and resting places for the evening, with an early morning tomorrow.
