Holiday Magic is in the air!  Our December IBM/SAM Meeting is next Monday, the 7th, at 7:00 in the Parlor at IUMC, 30 North Audubon Road, Indianapolis. We're having a Book Night where you can share a quick book report on a Magic Book, or select a favorite Magic Book to share or teach a trick from.  

We will not have a January meeting.

Our February meeting will be on Monday, the 1st.  The theme of the evening is Original Magic - your take on a trick, your patter for an illusion, your own effect.

On Sunday, February 14, we will be having our Fund raising magic show(s) at the Theatre on the Square, 627 Massachusetts Avenue.  We will have some excellent performers, and this will be a wonderful opportunity to share your appreciation of magic with friends, neighbors, co-workers, family, the city and the Midwest!  Funds raised will be used to support Magic Lectures in Indianapolis. There will be many opportunities for you to support the effort, besides buying and promoting tickets.

March 7th will be our regular meeting, with 'Quick Tricks' the theme, challenging you to present an effect in under 3 minutes!

July 2014 Activities

Announcements Schedule of Meetings

Compeers and Friends in Magic:

Everyone is saying they can't believe how fast 2014 is going and after that last winter, I don't want it seem like that. So, a little magic to help you along the way will make the speeding days more fulfilling. Our meeting is moved to July 14 and will be the installation of officers for S.A.M. #31. I'm so proud to serve as your president and thank you for all your support. 

We are also having a lecture this month on July 17 with Shelbyville's rising magic star Kyle Marlett. His "It's Tricky" tour and lecture will bring some new ideas to the magic you do. $25 admission.

Our meeting in August should be on the fourth, first Monday, as usual. We hope to see you there.
