Your modest dues (we have kept them low for years) help us:
-Present monthly events including lectures, contests, our auction/flea market, two stage shows with some bonus events, and offer teach-ins with related props; rent the beautiful meeting hall at the Oakland Scottish Rite Building on Lake Merritt (includes a free parking lot) and pay liability insurance; offer a fully equipped stage for appropriate events and a performance platform for regular meetings; increase our fantastic library—all while providing a forum for local magicians to meet and share.
It isn’t just about paying your dues but helping build our club, the oldest independent magic club west of the Mississippi, operating continuously since 1925. We want you to help keep the club relevant and contemporary, both learning from past and present trends while looking to the future.
We look forward to all meeting in person in early 2022 at our beautiful new meeting place at the Oakland Scottish Rite Building.
