Jan 9th – Eugene Burger Lecture

Jan 9th  –  Eugene Burger Lecture – Free to Members (2013 dues paid)  Non-Members pay $40 at the door for this lecture

Jan 10th –  Eugene Burger Workshop – $ 75


January 9th is our next meeting.  It is the second Wednesday of the month and we will be in the large room (bar) at Coco’s for a Eugene Burger lecture.  The following evening, Thursday January 10th at 8pm is the Eugene Burger Workshop, also at Coco’s in the Garden Room.

The Workshop is tailored to the needs/desires of the individuals that attend and is strictly limited to 12 seats to ensure each attendee the quality experience only this intimate venue can produce.  This is a unique opportunity to be tutored, advised, critiqued, informed and inspired by a legend.  Eugene is his own category in Magic – there are no comparable performers/teachers.   Magicians from around the country come to Las Vegas and pay much more than the Workshop fee to study in the shadow of the “Magic Beard”.

In addition to discussing anything attendees’ wish to cover during the Workshop, Eugene may also;

Talk about doing 20 minutes of magic right out of his wallet

Discuss why some self working tricks are so fabulous

Cover the trick which is un-explainable (Vernon’s trick)

The Workshop fee is $75 and must be paid in advance.  There are no refunds or cancellations due to the uniqueness of this opportunity.    Please call 602-628-1968 or email me to reserve your seat.  Interested members may send payment to me at the address below.  I will maintain a list of “reservations” but after Dec. 31 the seats will go to the first 12 that send payment.

The Gold Medal and Gold Cups Contests – often regarded as the best-run contest in magic are always a favorite. The dealers have uncontested time to show you their latest and greatest and they have even designed a 24 hr hangout area to jam. We have lots more talent to announce and some very special extras.
