SAM MEETING

SAM MEETING
First a HUGE thanks to Robert Ray for helping set up our four corners that kind of morphed into two mini lectures and two corners!
We had some young folks come out to the meetings and who knows maybe they will become the first of many if we can ever get the SYM off the ground! Who is willing to help with that!
It was a lot of fun and a HUGE thanks to Gary for teaching not only his coins across he learned from Jack Sutherland years ago… However, his creative style and way to tell stories was very helpful to many of the magicians! Thanks Gary!
A huge thanks also to Chris Rose! Armed with his shoulder holster of cards, flash paper and enough magic to entertain a group for hours on end! He gave some amazing tips and ideas on presentation taking things back to the basics with sponges! Thanks for all the great info Chris I am sure you helped a lot of magicians!
Fitz decided this was the night to be the escape from a straight jacket faster than anyone in the world… On a unicycle… Wheelly….
Robert Ray show us some great fun with bills and balloon in bill as well some very good advice on “Pressure” and things you should be aware of…
For those of you who couldn’t make it sorry to hear that but you all really did miss out!

A big thanks to Brad Zinn for the raffle prizes! Thanks Brad and hope things are going good talk soon!
Thank you to Irwin for use of the beautiful room as always!
Thank you to Doug who has taken over as treasurer and is gonna help the club move into the 21st century!
Now here is our call for help!! The club needs help folks… Not just money although that never hurts! We need some people who can do certain jobs… So, below are a list of job titles I created with the jobs the person or person’s can do… I don’t mind more than one person taking the same job to get it done easier for all… Please help the club so we can build a strong magic community here in Maricopa county!

Food and Beverage conjour!This person(s) need to make the coffee make sure we have some drinks and ice and help set up the room for the meeting and or lecture. As well help break the room down and clean up at the end of the meeting or lecture.
Lecturer solicitorWe need help soliciting people to do lectures for us and helping to see to the details they need to give us a great lecture.
RecruiterWe need all members to recruit new members however, we also need someone who can help welcome new members. Someone who can follow up with people who showed an interest but weren’t ready to join just yet.
My hope folks is that we can get a strong club going that can then support the national SAM and we can build a solid and long lasting foundation for an SYM. We can help a lot of young people be pointed in the right direction if we all just do a little lifting of the weight…
