May Meeting is a “Freeform” Theme!

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

Friday, May 25th
Incomprable, unequalled, distinctive, different, unique, eccentric, silly, fun, clever or just plain unparalleled. That’s how you may describe the tricks you’ll see at the May 25 “Freeform” meeting of Society of American Magician’s Assembly #12 of Minnespolis/St. Paul. It will be held at Eagle Magic and Joke Store on 11995 County Road 11 in Burnsville at 7 pm. Practice up and bring a trick that fits one of the adjectives above. See you then! By the way, we will once again award a special prize to someone who performs for the group.

November Meeting

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

This Friday, at our meeting, we have a theme and a tip.

The theme is impromptu coin magic. Bring your first or best non-gaffed coin trick. Or one you are working on.

The tip is anything you have learned and are willing to share around linking rings.

Bring your change bag to this Friday’s meeting.

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

At our meeting on Friday, March 16, 2012, we will begin a new learning series where members are encouraged to bring any tips they may have on presentation or technique for a classic trick or prop. The topic for this month is change bags. Bring your change bags large and small, one- and two-handed, two- and three-way, with and without a zipper, traditional style and disguised as something normal (change cap anyone?). Then …

  • demonstrate any unique features,
  • offer a tip on handling this prop,
  • perform a routine that uses it,
  • talk about its history or that of change bags in general, or
  • recommend a related book or DVD.

Looking for ideas? Check out “Time for a Change” on page 52 of the January 2012 issue of M-U-M.

Whether or not you have anything change bag-related, come ready to learn something new and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow magicians.

Coming up in March, we will begin a new learning series where members are encouraged to bring any tips they may have on presentation or technique for a classic trick or prop like Cut & Restored Rope, Change Bag, Linking Rings, Dove Pan, Professor’s Nightmare, Chinese Sticks, Scotch & Soda, Sleeve Bouquet, Flash Paper, Sponge Balls, Liquid Tricks, and Thumbtip.
