Due to the COVID, all of our youth and adult meetings have moved online.
Three Lectures/Three Shows
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 for an enjoyable evening of magic. At 7:00 PM that night just click on the following link to join us via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/4028718108
Mind Reading Magic
Featuring the branch of magic that creates the illusion of mind reading, this evening features both performances and explanations of some classic effects in both mentalism and what would better be called mental magic. OMS member, Steve Nespor, will be sharing some ideas for the effective use of mind reading magic with children, and our own David Fox will be performing and teaching one of his mentalism routines. You can read more about David at: https://www.midwestmentalist.com
Given only a paper sack full of props and very little time to prepare two teams compete against each other and the vote of the audience to create the most entertaining and mystifying magic routine.
Welcome to our version of Wizard Wars.
An Online Magic Show?
If during this COVID-19 isolation, you were working with a magician to design a birthday magic show to perform online for a group of seven-year olds, what one trick from your current repertoire would you be sure to include???
Bring it to the online meeting to show us the trick you selected and tell us about why you selected it.
There will also be a surprise guest of honor (to be announced later).
We'll be meeting in our club's Virtual Magic Meeting Room from 7-8:30 PM.
Click HERE at the meeting time for entrance on your computer, smart phone or tablet (as long as it has wi-fi, a microphone and camera).
Do you have a routine you've been working on which you'd be willing to receive feedback from other club members? That's what this meeting's all about.
Your Short Shelf
Bring a book that definitely is on your magic "short shelf" of high influence in your magic life - speaking a little about it and/or performing a routine from it.
Dollar Store Magic
Take the challenge if you dare. Bring and present a magic routine using no more than $5 worth of items purchased from your local Dollar Store . . . or share with us a routine you'd perform if you only had sixty seconds to make an impact.
Copy Cats is what we call this meeting where four of our members perform the cut and restored rope trick - giving it their own spin and explaining why they decided to routine it the way they did. We'll also have a visit from Travis Nye, owner of Spellbound Magic Shop in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, who will demonstrate some of the magic from his shop.
Kansas City Visiting Magicians
In exchange for a group of our members who'll be presenting online for the Kansas City IBM ring, three members from Kansas City will be joining us online to share with us performances and mini-lectures!
At out meeting in October (Monday, October 19, from 7-8:30 PM/CST) we'll have Jon Marshall as our guest from the UK through the magic of Zoom - sharing with us in pictures and videos magic illusions from his collection used in circus sideshows.
In addition, Travis Nye will demonstrate a couple of recent releases from his Spellbound Magic Shop and Larry Brodahl will teach one of the thirty audience tested routines he's been qjuiety releasing on https://lybrary.com.
Hope you can make it.

A virtual Magic Garage Sale???
Oh yes . . . it's our meeting in November!
