Elliot Card Challenge

In the Sun Journal, we are reminded of the third annual Elliott Card Challenge to be presented by Ring 362 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in Bangor, Maine on April 20th.  "The contest honors Rumford native son James William Elliott (1874-1920), who publicly challenged the world to compete in a contest of card manipulative skill. For the 22 years that he offered this public challenge, no one ever took him up on his offer, allowing him to remain the Champion Card Manipulator of the World, 'The King of Kards.' " One year ago, Rumford was named as "Maine's Capital of Magic" by  Ring 362 of the I.B.M. and Assembly 174 of the Society of American Magicians to further honor Elliot. Among this year's contestants is Tom Craven of "The LInking Ring."
