President's Report

Fellow Magicians,

Let me begin by thanking everyone who was able to make it to the April meeting. Everyone seemed to have a great time despite the windy conditions and were properly entertained by our talented magicians. Thanks to each of them as well.

A special thanks goes out to Jim “Mr. Magic” Henson for providing all the prizes and giveaways. Iíll be the first to admit I had no clue who the three magicians were in his “Trivia Photograph”. As always, all of the members were given gifts from Jim and each performer received an additional gift.

Planning for our next meeting is in the works and we hope it will be as entertaining and fun as the last. Our goal is to improve every month so the challenge to our board has been issued.

As mentioned during the meeting, we are planning a Flea Market in the near future with the date and location to be determined by the May meeting. Details will be provided then. Additionally, we are planning a full-fledged picnic and will be having some interesting “events” happening for everyone. Again, details will be forthcoming once we have settled on the details.

Also mentioned at the meeting were the details pertaining to Jim’s “Estate Sales”. There are seven estates involved with magic and gags for every level of interest. Stash your cash and be ready to buy everything. Prices are all marked on every item and are priced to sell quickly. There are some rules to follow though. The sale will be the LAST THREE WEEKENDS of MAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY of each week.

You will NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION for one of the following days and times:      Thursday - Time frames are: 1 to 3, 3 to 5 or 5 to 7
     Friday - Time frames are: 1 to 3, 3 to 5 or 5 to 7
     Saturday - Time frames are: 1 to 3, 3 to 5 or 5 to 7

There will be a limit of how many people will be allowed in at one time and temperatures will be taken at the door. A MASK WILL BE REQUIRED at all times during your time frame.

That is all I have for the time being. Stay tuned for details of upcoming events and meetings.

We look forward to seeing everyone in May.

Until next time...

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, and by all means, Stay Magical!

UPDATE: As you all know I have been battling COVID since the 16th of April. I spent 6 days in the hospital on oxygen only where the staff at Baptist Hospital Springhill took extremely good care of me. Between my wife getting me to go to the hospital and the staff at Baptist I know they saved my life. For that I am extremely grateful.

To be inluded in the "Hero's" list I cannot forget to include my magic family for all the support and prayers. Without this support the battle would have been more difficult. I am blessed to have such a fine group of people who genuinely care. To each and everyone of you, from the bottom of my heart, I THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Know that I am improving by the day and I hope to see each of you in person very soon!
