Meeting Reminder: April 19th, 2013
In anticipation of Saturday’s magic event, we’ll look at two of Mark Mason’s techniques (Mark has a booth at Saturday’s event). Bring a technique you want to share — and, of course, a trick to share.
ASSEMBLY #12 Meeting Place, 7:30pm
Eagle Magic, 11995 County Road 11, Burnsville
February 8th, 2013 by Roger Schmidt
Collapse your wands and deflate your shoes; it’s time to trek to Eagle Magic for the February* SAM 12 meeting (it’s a warm, welcoming place, unlike your home after you forgot to get your loved-one a Valentine’s Day gift)!
In addition to the share-a-trick portion of the meeting, we will continue the lively discussion we started in January on the pitfalls and rewards of Restaurant Magic by treading into a conversation on the pitfalls, rewards, and special considerations for corporate party gigs.
Also, please bring your thoughts on a question we floated last month:
“What methods could we use to attract new magicians to SAM-12, albeit meeting content, separate events, or new markets and messages”
* Latin februarius (mensis) ”(month) of purification”; from an annual Roman festival

At our meeting on Friday, November 16, 2012, we will resume our learning series where we perform routines related to a given topic and share tips on presentation or technique. This month we’re talking about tricks you’re always prepared to do should the occasion arise. What’s the routine? Is it, or does it seem, impromptu? What do you need to carry with you?
Even if — maybe, especially if — you don’t have a trick you’re always prepared to perform, come ready to learn something new and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow magicians.

We have a reservation for 5:45 p.m. on Friday, September 21st, at Rock Bottom Brewery which is in the same building as the State Theatre. If you’d like to join the group, please contact us so we can update the reservation.
The cast will likely include Farrell Dillon, Darren Romeo, Michael Giles, Tom Burgoon, Angela Acosta, and possibly Jason Baney. They will not be staying overnight in Minneapolis. Instead, it will be 12 hours on a sleeper bus to Merrillville, IN for them. Nonetheless, we still may be able to get some time with the cast while the show packs. We’ll play it by ear after the show.
Our next meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 19, 2012, at Eagle Magic.

Our next meeting is supposed to be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 21, 2012 at Eagle Magic. However, Masters of Illusion Live! is at the State Theatre in Minneapolis at that same time. So, we will not meet at Eagle Magic that night. We are trying to arrange something for Assembly 12 members at or near the State Theatre before or after the show. Details to come. In the meantime, please reply to this email and let us know if you’re thinking of going to Masters of Illusion Live! so we know what size group to plan for. Thanks!

Because so many members have indicated that they will not be able to make the regularly-scheduled May meeting (for a number of reasons including the AbraCORNdabra convention), the meeting has been canceled. Our next meeting is September 21, 2012 and will include the election of officers.

At our meeting on Friday, April 20, 2012, we will continue our new learning series. The topic for this month is card forces. Perform a trick that includes your favorite card force — it can be anything from the classic force to a one-way force deck. Tell us what you like about the force and share any handling advice you may have.
We will be nominating candidates for President, Vice President, and Secretary/Treasurer. Think of which position interests you and who you’ll nominate for the other positions. The basic responsibilities are as follows: the President runs meetings, the Vice President submits Assembly Reports to M-U-M., and the Secretary/Treasurer sends meeting announcements. Elections will be held at the May meeting.
