Abbott-Watson Magic Club Receives Charter into The International Brotherhood of Magicians

I am delighted to inform any interested magi and news media that the Abbott-Watson Magic Club will receive its Charter into The International Brotherhood of Magicians (I.B.M.) this Thursday, June 21, 6:30 PM, at FAB Magic Company, 212 E. State Street, Colon, MI 49040. The I.B.M. is the largest magicians organization (www.magician.org) worldwide with magic clubs called "Rings" in countries from Argentina to Zimbabwe. This club will be known as Ring 386! I will present the Charter which is signed by the International President Vanni Pulé of Malta. Ring 386 joins with the other Rings in Michigan (Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Bay City/Midland/Saginaw, Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Lansing) to promote and enhance the growth and development of the performing art of magic!

Ring 386 in Colon will also serve the following towns: Athens, Union City, Batavia, Three Rivers, Sturgis, Burr Oak, Bronson, Coldwater, Constantine, Vicksburg, Marcellus, Centerville, Mendon, Leondis, Sherwood, Findley, White Pigeon, and Pearl Beach. Magi may also come from the Indiana towns: Howe, Lagrange, and Fremont. Magicians in these towns and any places in between are encouraged to come to this meeting and join! Local media in these towns are also invited for the presentation of the Charter and enjoy some magic! Pass this information onward.


Now an invite from Rick Fisher of FAB Magic followed by Bill Watson, the President of Ring 386 --
