A reminder that this Friday could be the day!The day you de-clutter your magic trunk, closet, shelf, or room.

The day you de-clutter your mind

The day you get to recycle unused magic to compeers

The day you support SAM 12

The day you make a little money

And, as a buyer, there are always great deals.

See you, there!

Items we can not auction: live animals, copied tapes, DVDs, or moon rocks.

http://www.thommitchell.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/man-with-megaphone.pngThis announcement is a bit early, so you can sort through your luggage and closets for unused magic to sell/recycle.
Imagine that, getting PAID to declutter your life!

Bring your tricks, DVDs, VHS-tapes, and 8-tracks to Eagle Magic, October 18 at 7:30pm
11995 County Road 11, Burnsville, MN 55337

Sam 12 Meeting Tonight (March 15, 2013)

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Meeting Reminder: Feb 15, 2013

March 15th, 2013

Brighten-up an otherwise dreary, slippery, wintery-mix-of-a-day by heading on over to tonight’s SAM meeting.

Last meeting we talked about viewing/discussing media clips of illusions, patter, or presentations; we’ll start that tonight.

Meeting Reminder: Feb 15, 2013

Friday, February 8th, 2013

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

Elections this Friday

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

We will be meeting this Friday, January 18, 2013. Elections will be held. Nominees include Larry Kahlow, Steve Peer, and Roger Schmidt (a.k.a. Roger Wells). Nominations will also be accepted from the floor. Bring a trick to share.

Bring your “Magician 24/7” material

Monday, November 12th, 2012

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.
