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.

CRAP Meeting ImageStop 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.  Announcements/Special Reports are updated infrequently but all CRAPpers can be notified by text or you can subscribe to this blog. To subscribe simply click on the entries rss link on this page.  Then you’ll be notified of updates to this page when they happen.

Please remember, most of the CRAP contained within these pages is made possible by the kindness and outreach of Colonel Kidwell and The Magic Shop aka ArtiesMagic.Com.

    Hey this is great !
    It’s good to see someone like Artie continuing in the tradition of
    Haines, Brewe, Pryor and the like, as far as doing something to
    keep interest alive in our area. I have never known Artie to be
    anything other than polite, cordial and helpful to anyone who
    shares the interest we all have in magic. Keep up the good work !
