OK,I just found out I might be wrong. The relative manifest world mutates rapidly this side of the multiverse. I know,I know....I ate my wheaties today.

I would welcome any letters you can get other members to write. I think it helps draw attention to different parts of the magazine. Of course, any questions, criticisms, or clarifications are welcome as well.

So, if you know of any readers who want to get a letter published, tell 'em to write. Thanks!

They will be appearing at the only Florida State Magic Convention this year.
And get this....not only will they be performing the entire second half of the show, they will also be presenting a lecture AND a special teach-in for 20 lucky people only...BUT...10 of those seats are already gone!
The convention also includes your Friday night dinner, 13 Lectures (more than a national convention), five contests ($2000.00 in prizes) and a final day auction (which gets bigger and bigger every year!)
FISM winner Helder Guimaraes will be performing his act as well as
International Star of Magic...Pavel!
Now...I only ask you to do three things:
1. Print this out and take this info to your next club meeting.
2. Put the FMA (Florida Magicians Association) convention date on your
club website "Upcoming events" calandar.
3. Register NOW for the convention.
Thanks and I'll see you there.

From our treasurer:

Plan to attend the
TAMPA BAY MAGIC CLUB COMPETITION SHOW
8pm OCTOBER 16th Friday
Largo Cultural Center
Tonne Playhouse (the Theater)
TICKETS $16 up till October 15th contact Pat Gaughan or use WebLink below.
$25 AT DOOR

Dear Members,

As you know the Sheriff's Youth Ranch is near and dear to me for many years. My relationship with the Youth Ranch made it possible to have our meetings there. I find when people give from their heart their lives are enriched.

There 60 children and house parents at the Sheriff's Youth Ranch. Many of these children are there not because of their actions but the actions of their parents or situation. They get the basics from the SYR and there is little room for extras or evenings out.

I propose our membership sponsor some children to go to see the Stage Competition. We can not take this from the general funds as this is not a regular cost for the club. So I am asking members to sponsor 1 or more children to go to the show. Mark has set up a link for those of you who would like to enrich the life of a child and show them what real magic looks like.

It works out to less than 1/2 a ticket per member, I know some will give more and sadly some will not all. Two coffees at StarBucks ... dig deep people!

Something that might not been mentioned, the profits of this show goes to pay our rent for the entire year at the Largo Cultural Center. Mark Byrne has worked unbelievably hard to put together a deal that benefits the club for year to come. So far we have 6 Competitors some traveling quite a distance to be part of our show. The new prize structure is working.

To donate:

To buy your tickets for family and friends:

Thank you in advance,

Patrick Gaughan
You may mail checks directly to me. Make a note that says it is for Sheriff's Youth Ranch Children

Word from the Membership Chairman Al Zunich

Al works behind the scenes so much we got this picture from the CIA spy satellite!
What is the club worth to you? We have 8 - 10 lecturers per year, a picnic, now two competition shows with prizes (stage & Close-up), the most beautiful facility I have seen for a magic club and all this for $30 per year???? I have belonged to other club, this is unprecedented most clubs are alacart, you pay your dues and then each lecture (if they have one) and for each meeting and a dinner and etc ...
With our membership topping this year at 130 magicians you would think selling out a 400 seat theater would be easy, we still have a ways to go!!! BUY your tickets now at the 45% off the door price ... remembers NO ONE gets club price at the door $25 each there. And if you can't go I understand, but can't understand why you won't buy tickets to donate to the Sheriff's Youth Ranch let us help put smiles on ALL the children's faces. thank you!!

Well it is over!!!!

The show went well. 8 magicians 2 MC's and over $600 worth of prizes
The votes were cast and the winners were:

First Place Jeff Alan with a very funny act
Second Place Mark Byrne with his Surreal Magic Act
Third Place Nathan Coe Marsh Vacation from Reality

The room was almost sold out of the 400 seat theater. Not bad considering we were p against the Clearwater Jazz Festival.

April 23rd get ready now!! $600 Close up Competition and dinner. 6-8 performers round robining at a catered banquet. Buy tickets in advance.
