We have some exciting programming planned for Assembly 12’s 2015–2016 season — starting with two lectures in September followed by the auction in October!
On our regular meeting night — Friday, September 18th — David Ginn will lecture. This is free to members who have paid their Assembly 12 dues ($10) for 2015–2016. NOTE: We will start at 7:00 p.m. (30 minutes earlier than usual).
The night before — Thursday, September 17th — Pop Haydn will lecture. Members who have paid their Assembly 12 dues ($10) for 2015–2016 will receive 40% off ($15 instead of $25).
Please help us prepare for the lectures by letting us know if you will be there for one or both by clicking the Register links below.
We’ll be continuing with our successful mini-lecture format. Member/guest-lecturer Roger Wells will be asking the question when to use gimmicked or non-gimmicked props, focusing on the classic coins-across routine.
We want to spend a record SHORT time nominating new officers (President, V.P., and Sec/Treasurer), so bring your nominees.
With our October meeting we introduced mini-lectures, where someone volunteers in advance to demo a single illusion along with context, patter, convincers, and even the genesis of that illusion — as well as sharing the method.
We also circulated a poll to collect opinions about what works (and doesn’t) regarding our meetings. (sample here: www.mobosurvey.com/S8DR3)
Nominations and elections for all positions will be held at the next meeting in November.
SAM member Jack Nordin was pleased to share with us an award of recognition presented to him by the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Larry Kalow presented our first mini-lecture. It was a seasonal (Halloween) rope and silk illusion. He was followed by a seven other SAM members presenting a myriad of other excellent illusions.
