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.

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 …”

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.

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)

Hello Magicians

I hope your summer was full of fun in the sun (or what passes for sun in this province)
We’re back this month at a slightly later time, We’ll be meeting at the Mumford Sobeys on September 28th but due to a earlier booking out meeting will not start until 7:30.
The format for the evening will be as usual open round table and then for the second half I thought we could have a show and tell of “effects that still work with the new plastic money”.
Hope to see you all there.

April Magic Meeting – Wednesday , April 29th, 2015

* Meeting is on Wednesday this month*

Meeting Information

Hello Magicians,

This months meeting is scheduled for Wednesday April 29th at the Mumford Sobey’s Community Room, as always 6:30 for a 7:00 start.
Bring some of your deals from the auction and show of your new tricks.
February’s meeting was very interesting, Michael James brought in a routine which we used as the jumping off point to brainstorm gags, lines and plot points. If you have anything you’d like to show and receive some feed back on please take the plunge, its fun and useful for everyone to be thinking along these creative lines.
See you all soon!
PS.  Patrick Drake has a message for the club
Hey guys.   a few years ago I brought a book to the auction – Lewis Ganson’s The Art of Close Up Magic vol 1.   If in the event you bought that book and it might be on your shelf in magician’s purgatory, I would be interested in buying it back, or perhaps trading it for a few dvd’s of your choice.  Just let me know.

Thanks.
