On Friday, July 7, 2006, at 7 PM, Midwest Magic is proud to present:
An evening with Docc Hilford

Imagine seeing a professional mentalist's act and wanting to add one, a few or all of the effects you saw to your show. You attend his
lecture, but he only explains a few tricks and none of them from his actual act.
Many professionals refuse to perform their "A" material if there are magicians in the audience; they don't want their private effects to
get out. This is understandable, but what if a professional mentalist was to give a special lecture that explained every detail of his
entire act, the act he's presenting around the world? Would you miss it? Or would you eagerly run as fast as you could to get the real

Docc Hilford's special lecture will teach his complete act! This isn't an act that was popular in the past; it's the act he's using
today. It has been a hit at private parties and theaters across the U.S., England, Scotland, Brazil, and the Aladdin Hotel and Casino in
Las Vegas. In this lecture, nothing will be held back.

Included in this "once in a lifetime" lecture:

Jaks' Room--Combining the effects of The 16 Digit Trick, Koran'sbMedallion and Annemann's Swami Test into the perfect opening. The Ultimate
Magazine Test--A full routine with no less than EIGHT climaxes! It's a theater piece that can stand-alone and is guaranteed to generate publicity.

Smoke Pictures on Glass--A thought is expressed as a beautiful picture in smoke.
(NONE of the previous effects have been published)

SPECIAL BONUS:The Complete Nightclub Act!
A fast-paced, multi-trick, 15-minute act designed for dance floors in hotel nightclubs. The effects in thisbact are so clever, Docc won?t reveal
them outside of his special lecture. The opening test is worth the entire lecture.

Buddha Billet Tests--These are the three billet tests Docc uses to sell his act. The Whispering Buddha, The Wish and Buddha?s Message are
pieces that bring beauty to selling the act. (All unpublished)

You'll get all the patter, bits of comedy and tips to perform these acts.
The lecture is over 2 hours long!

Why would Docc expose the act he uses? Because over the years the best tips have come from other magicians. Docc will be going on a world
tour of hotels, theater and nightclubs in several countries in November, December and January. He wants to learn more about his act,and
teaching others is the best way. Don't miss this one time event!

Attendees will be given special prices for Docc's NEW DVDs, books or tricks. The mentalism act alone is commanding fees from $2,500 to $7,000
without the teaching of the effects, yet Docc will perform and explain the stage act, the nightclub act and the billet tests in his lecture. These
effects WILL NOT BE EXPLAINED when Docc lectures at Mindvention in Las Vegas in November! This is your only chance.
Tickets are $25 and seating is limited so call today and make a reservation!

On Saturday, July 8 at 6 PM, Docc will be presenting his Personal Mentalism Workshop

Professional Mentalists DON'T Want You to Know These Real Secrets!
They're just TOO GOOD!

Banachek, Ted Lesley, Jon Stetson, Jack Dean, Al Mann, David Alexander, Alain Nu, Bob Sheets, and many other working mentalists
have asked Docc NOT to reveal the secrets that are taught in his new workshop; they think they?re too good to let out.

But Docc's all NEW workshop has the secrets YOU need to know!

Here is what you'll learn in this workshop:
Secret Number 1--Real Work on Billets: How entertain from 1 to 1,000 people with a couple of slips of paper. This really inside stuff.
Secret Number 2--Where to Get the Cash: Places to earn at least $1,000 a show with what you?ve learned.
Secret Number 3--The Perfect Question and Answer Act:
Q and A that can be performed anywhere, anytime!
The question and answer routine has long been the mainstay of mentalism.Those who actually perform it make great fees. Those who don't,
struggle. Over 15 years ago Docc Hilford invented a method of Q&A where NOTHING IS WRITTEN yet 15 or 20 specific questions are
answered.No pre-show work or anything like it. You just walk on and start working! Docc used this act to earn the money that bought his first
home. The effect is remarkable to an audience, but the professional mentalists who learned the secret claimed it to be the best they ever used.

Here's what they said:
"I kick myself in the behind for not thinking of it myself. It's fantastic!"--Ted Lesley
"This is the first advance in Q&A in fifty years."--Jack Dean
"This new technique is worth a fortune to a working pro."--Bascom Jones
"This is the freakin? best!"--Ricki Dunn
"The best routine for question answering since the clipboard."--Al Mann
"You're a genius my friend." Banachek

Plus FREE!
Participants will receive the full secrets above, as well as a CD version of the classic book, One Man Mind Reading Secrets by Ralph Read. This is
one of the textbooks for mentalists. It covers billet work and advanced mind reading techniques. Also included are two books by mentalist Ted
Annemann, Annemann's Buried Treasures, Annemann's Mental Mysteries. These rare books include everything from needle swallowing to mental
tests. And a special 5,000 word report,The Most Powerful Approach to Personal Success in Show Business.The books and report are FREE.

So, the workshop is over 3 hours long, you'll learn the top three secrets including Docc's special Q&A act, and you'll get all the above-mentioned
All for $35! Call today for a reservation!

Sounds great, Tom... For out-of-towners who can't attend, might the "free" goodies be available for the admission fee?... Thanx, J.
