“If you are looking for new close-up or stand-up material, wondering how to market yourself, striving to move up to the next level, or just interested in a behind-the-scenes look at a touring illusion show, the Outerbridge lecture is a not to be missed experience.”

LECTURE HIGHLIGHTS

TIME OF DAY – The ultimate magic trick for television and radio appearances!

FLOATING BARRICADE LIGHT – The classic Zombie Ball reimagined as a construction barricade light.

PURPLE CARD – Bullet Through Card with a water pistol loaded with grape Kool-Aid.

TP PREDICTION – The ultimate “packs small, plays big” comedy prediction.

PERFUME – Predict the perfume a volunteer is thinking of.

TOURING SECRETS – How to book your show, what to do at media appearances, great publicity stunts, developing original material, a sample day in a touring illusion show, and more.

GYPSY THREAD – Thoughts on presentation and handling.

THE PSYCHIC IS RIGHT – Comedy mentalism at its finest and a highlight of Outerbridge performances for the past 23 years.

Hope to see a good turn out, and share this with your fellow magician friends!

September Magic Meeting – Wednesday, Sept. 14th, 2016

Meeting Information

Hello Magicians!

Our next meeting is Wednesday, Sept. 14th, 7:00 pm, at the Sobeys on Mumford Road. We know it is earlier than usually, but the Sobeys Community Room is even busier in September than usual. It’s not so bad when you consider we haven’t been together since June. I’m sure we’re all eager to plunge back in.

Bring some new tricks you learned over the summer, new books, and anything else you would like to share with the club!

See you all there!

April Magic Auction – Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Meeting Information

Hello Magicians

Our popular magic item auction night will be on Wednesday, April 27th at the Sobeys on Mumford Road. Start time: 7:00 pm. Get there early to set up if you are bringing items to sell!

This is always a great opportunity to sell some props, books, DVDs, etc. that you’ve squeezed the use out of and, at the same time, pick up a treasure or two that you may have coveted for awhile.

As a reminder, here are the details:

1. Prepare a list of your items and bring two copies.
2. Clearly label each item with the same name you have called it on your list. This should be obvious but you’d be surprised. Use PostIt Notes or just tape a piece of paper to the item.
3. Try to find the retail price for the item. If you don’t have it, check the online magic shops like Browser’s Den, Perfect Magic, Tannen’s, Denny & Lee, Hocus Pocus, Vanishing Inc. or wherever.
4. Print the retail price on the item label. Clearly list it as the retail price and not the reserve price (see #5). Note whether the retail price is in Canadian or US dollars.
5. If you have a reserve price (the least amount you’ll accept for the item) put that on the item label.
6. Arrive at the club by 6:30 in order to have time to set out your wares and to allow buyers to see them.
7. Smaller items are to be bundled in at least $5.00 packages – this allows us to speed along and have more time to get to all the items for auction.

The club keeps 10% of the sales price of the article.
Bring small bills if you plan to buy. We will not accept credit or debit cards. There are ALWAYS good deals available so bring lots of cash.

See you all there! Check out the pictures from last months meeting as well! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.536599513181122&type=1

March Magic Meeting – Monday, March 28th, 2016

Meeting Information

Hello Magicians

Our next meeting is this coming Monday, March 28, 7:00 pm, at the Sobeys on Mumford Road.

This will not be our Auction Night as originally scheduled. The auction will be held during our April meeting. So you have five full weeks to choose books, DVDs, tricks, supplies or whatever else you own that you have no further need of. The auction gives you a chance to pocket a few bucks and also the opportunity to find a few treasures from other members. “One man’s trash …”

January Magic Meeting – Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Hello Magicians

Here’s a friendly reminder that the club will be meeting this coming Wednesday at the Sobeys Community Room on Mumford Road. Some of us have forgotten to pay our dues for this year, so bring the paltry $30 with you so that you can continue to enjoy my company. As a bonus, and if you ask nicely, Greg may take a selfie with you if you pay up.

October Magic Meeting – Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

* Meeting is on Wednesday this month and starts at 7:00PM *

Meeting Information

Hello Magicians

It’s October so, wood smoke, candy and magic are in the air. We’ll be getting together to talk shop and do a few tricks.  Anyone with a penchant for the spooky should come and show us something shocking (magic of course not like a weird rash or series of spooky skin tags)
