SPECIAL DATE FOR THE JANUARY 2019 OMC MEETING

THURSDAY JANUARY 3rd

We changed the date since the first Tuesday falls on New Year’s Day. This meeting has a lecture by an amazing magician and teacher, Jamy Ian Swiss.

Usually lectures by Jamy are $40.00 and well worth it BUT for OMC members the special price is $20.00 and this covers your dues payment for all of 2019 so the lecture is FREE

This is a blatant upfront fabulous deal to get all of you to pay your dues at the start of the year.
New members who want to join can fill out their application. Pay just $20.00 dues for the year with no application fee and come to the lecture

Anyone who is not a member, and does not want to join the OMC is welcome to come for only $20.00.

Doors open 6:00PM.

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. 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 2019 .
