September Meeting Report

The SAM Assembly #12 resumed regular monthly meetings with the the September gathering. It was well attended with 15 magicians, many of whom performed for the group. Attending: president Tom O’Lenick; VP, Larry Kahlow; Paul Ladig; Tom Faggerstrom; Jerry Martin; Jack Boyd; Paul Cook; Paul Black; Kevin Smith; Dan Witkowski; Todd Anderson; Brad Gudim; Mike Platt; Adam Moore; and Manuel Benitis. 

The group discussions were very lively as everyone assembled prior to the official business and performance. The group agreed to hold the October (Fri.,10/18) and December (Fri.,12/13) meetings at the Regency Apartments Community Room at 2200 Plymouth Road in Minnnetonka. The November meeting (Fri.,11/15) will be at Eagle Magic and Joke store in Burnsville (our usual location).

As a final order of business, elections were held. A big “THANK YOU” to Kevin Smith who was unanimously elected as the new club President. Larry Kahlow will continue as Vice-president. The gavel will be passed and pounded at the next meeting.

Performances by Brad Gudim showing “Lucid Dreams” caused a photograph to change magically into a selected card. Mike Platt demonstrated a Paul Richards card effect called “Coersion.” Jack Boyd did a four ace assembly and finished with “Doonebury Delight.” Adam Moore and Manny Benitias also performed. 

Jennifer Kahlow, Paul Ladig and Jerry Martin provided snacks and cookies for the group following the demonstration of magic tricks. Mingling continued well into the later evening.
