Nominations for OMC Officers. If you would like to run for office in the OMC for 2017, come to the November meeting and place your name in nomination. You must be a dues-paid member of the OMC to run for office. The election will be held at the December meeting.

This will be an open performance night. Tricks with a political, Halloween, or Houdini theme would seem appropriate.


Phil Ackerly will share his magic, insights, marketing tips, stories and a few magical effects with us at our October meeting.  He’ll show us how he is able to do 3 to 4, and sometime 5 shows a day, and still get to the next gig in time.

He will explain how he went from being a Marketing Engineer to one of the busiest full-time performers for the past 24 years.  He will talk about working with music, creating routines, scripting, sound systems, and how to differentiate yourself.
