Due to the COVID, all of our youth and adult meetings have moved online.
Where Cross Pollination Begins
Last September, the Kansas City Magic club presented a zoom lecture for us. This was made possible because earlier that month Jared Schaugaard, Larry Brodahl, and David Fox did a Zoom show for them. It was very well received by the Kansas City Club and we had several of our members say they would be interested in seeing the show our three members had performed. We are happy to say that our January meeting will make that happen. Each will perform 10 to 15 minutes of magic followed by detailed instruction of the acts they perform. Please plan to join us at 7:00 pm on January 18, 2021.
A Case for Strolling Magic
We've asked a few of our members who are experienced with performing strolling magic to show us their close-up bag, what they typically have in it, and perhaps show a favorite effect. Members should have their close-up cases handy for a little show and tell as well.
