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.

𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝗜𝗻 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗣𝗼𝗰𝗸𝗲𝘁𝘀?
We will ask members, “What's in Your Pockets?” Is there a trick you always carry with you when you head out the door? If you're doing walk around, what is one of the tricks you would have on you? Is there a favorite effect you like to do in family Zoom gatherings? You can either simply name the effect or share a short routine. You don’t need to perform to join in the discussion.
Travis Nye will also be popping in from the 𝗦𝗽𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗯𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗠𝗮𝗴𝗶𝗰 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝗽 in Sioux Falls to share a few things in his shop that would be good pocket tricks.
