About the Covington Royal Academy of Prestidigitators
Here you will find CRAP reports and photos of our meetings.
The Covington Royal Academy of Prestidigitators was formed by Colonel Artie Kidwell in 1995. That’s when the Colonel opened The Magic Shop in MainStrasse Village, Covington Kentucky.Originally it was an informal group that would gather haphazardly after hours to discuss all things magic related. After a few years the shop moved, within the same building, to a larger space. This larger space allowed CRAP to have a regular meeting, Tuesday at 7pm. After another year or two, merchandise and more members forced us out of the Magic Shops’s backroom. Fortunately, Wertheim’s German Restaurant next door to the shop in the Mainestrausse Village, allowed us to meet in a backroom of the restaurant. That is where we meet now, every Tuesday at 7pm ish. We don’t have rules, dues, or organization. It’s just a group of folks meeting to discuss/share their interest in magic. We do occasionally have lectures. Often have visitors and invite you to stop by any Tuesday your in the area. You can call the shop at 859 491-1313 to confirm but it’s not required.
Stop by Wertheim’s on a Tuesday night and you’ll find a group (size varies) of magicians sitting in the backroom sharing all things magic related. Of course, here on our blog you can find out what happened at a meeting you missed or what happened on the other side of the room during a meeting you did attend. The meeting reports will be posted on the Wednesday following the meeting. So if you check on Thursday you can be confident it will have been updated. All comments about this blog are welcome.
