Sunday, May 15th, 2016

We’re implementing a new format this Friday that promises to make for richer, smoother evening.
This month’s topic: Revisiting the Thumb Tip

TTIn the first 12 minutes, we cover the business-portion
Then we’ll have Larry present a 5-minute slice of history.
This could be related to the theme or just be a magical moment in history.

The Theme is repeated; members can then:

• share a trick
• share a story on the topic
• share some disaster around the trick
• share something new you are working on  (preferably about the topic)
• questions you have about the topic

tt2Larry will put together a store-special relating to the theme.

Then we finish with the familiar chat-mode until Jennifer has the good sense to shuffle us all home.

BONUS: Paul Harris and Joshua Jay

remind us of just a few powerful effects:
