At the next Assembly 181 meeting

It has been a hot summer and now it is time for Magic! SAM Assembly 181’s first meeting of the 2019-2020 season will be on Thursday, September 5, 2019.  Our first workshop will be “Impromptu, Easy to Perform, Card Magic Using a Borrowed Deck” by George Hann.

All effects start with a deck that has been shuffled by the spectator.  The effects are from such greats as, Dai Vernon, Paul Harris, Michael Ammar, and John Scarne. No preset-up, gimmick cards, duplicate cards, or cards with different color backs are needed.  Yet, these tricks are easy to learn and pack a big punch.

Included with this workshop will be free detailed lecture notes for all who attend.  Whether you are a beginner at card magic or a professional card mechanic, We guarantee you will walk away with something worthy of adding to your repertoire.

Society of American Magicians Assembly 181 of Hightstown meets the first Thursday of every month, September thru June at the First United Methodist Church , 187 Stockton Street, Hightstown, NJ 08520. Doors open at 7:00 PM. Workshops start at 7:30 PM.

The Association of Children’s Entertainers takes a vacation in July and August and no meetings are scheduled in those summer months. See you in September.

This club was created  for our members to share and learn so we can call ourselves the best Children’s Entertainers  around.   If you know a children’s entertainer,  whether they are a magician, a clown, ventriloquist, puppeteer, face painter, balloon twister or story teller, please invite them to attend the meeting.  The more diversified our members the more we all get to learn.
