Hello All:

Our Monthly meeting is coming up on the 15th before the upcoming Auction. Let discuss some logistics.  Does anyone want to do a show?  Please let me know asap. Of course bring along something to perform, the past meetings have been very fun with everyone contributing something!  Good to see Robert Bengal, as it has been a long time….

·         The Annual Magic Auction will be Saturday October 19th at the same campus as Winfield’s but with a larger space (In bldg C1 “Curry Hall”) We are planning a stage show along with the auction so put this on your calendar and let us know if you are interested in performing. Please see the separate notice recently sent out for further details.

·         Bill Wisch =  November 20th, also see attached Flyer.  I personally look forward to attending this one as Bill is a protégé of Slydini and is authorized in writing by Slydini to present his magic.  Here’s a link to part one of his Castle Act https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeDTnHGWEcU and Lecture Announcement https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKeOYyqac4g

·         Ring #55 Holiday Banquet will be the first Saturday in December (12/7), further details to follow.

See you at Winfield’s!

Thank you:

It’s that time of year again, our Annual Bert  Easley/Danny Dew Ring #55 Magic Auction is coming up on Saturday, October 19th from 10:00 am to about 3:00 pm!  This year we will have a bigger space and more tables available.  It will be on the same campus as last year but rather than Winfield’s we will use Curry Hall for the auction.  We would also like to do a show for the public (Halloween theme?) after the auction, so let me know if you would like to perform!  Due to a scheduling issue we may have to use Winfield’s  for this show.  Table rentals for items you would like to sell yourself are $10.00 and can be reserved thru the Ring #55 web site at www.ring55.org, or contact our treasurer Bruce Lindvig at 2bruce@cox.net to use paypal or any of the popular payment platforms. If you rent a table, you keep all proceeds. If you would like to auction items yourself, please fill out the attached spreadsheet so we can track the sales.  All self auctions will pay 10% of sales to Ring #55 and this year we will do CASH or CHECK only as we won’t have access to card payment options (maybe paypal, but I’ll let you know).   Start cleaning out that magic closet or drawer(s) and sell that unused stuff.  Last year we had a great turn out with some surprises along the way!  Put this on your calendar and join us for a great time!

FBCS Campus Location:

7025 E Osborn Rd

Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Major cross streets are Scottsdale road and Osborn road. Attached is a photo so you can see we will have plenty of parking on both sides of the building.

More details to come…feel free to contact me if you have any questions….
