Apparatus night. We’ve had apparatus magic night before. It means magic using magic apparatus rather than sleight of hand or mind reading. Bring something to show and demonstrate! It will be open to everyone. This will not be a lecture. You can perform, talk about the history, tell of the routine, patter or your improvements, etc.
Also, it is nomination night for officers of the OMC for 2020 .

6:30pm Doors Open
6:45pm Teach-In (flip stick) — The teach-in this month will feature the flip stick move. This is a move I’ve never done, but would love to learn. Done well, it really looks like magic! Dante has agreed to take the lead on this.
Thanks Dante! I’m bringing a sharpie, a wooden spoon, and a willingness to look silly. If you have a move or effect that you would like to suggest for the teach-in, please let us know!
7:00pm OMC business Meeting
7:30pm Open Performance — Time to get some of our performance on! I am asking each member to prepare something. Even if you don’t consider yourself a performer, you’re in a magic club! There must be some little effect that you have at home that you enjoy. Bring it, perform it, and we will cheer
