Yep, we are having our regular KaZoo Chapter of the FCM meeting on Saturday, March 9, 2013, from 10AM-Noon(or after?), at Lighthouse Community Church in Kalamazoo, 4321 S. 11th Street. All welcome to attend. Virginia and Warren Paulson will be doing a full one hour lecture on clowning and magic; MagicBob and SuZie will be giving a full report on their just completed India trip, and I will be performing "Get Sharky" along with doing a mini-lecture on a new "Gospel paddle" I have been working on. Everyone will get their own free raw materials to make up their own paddles too. Plus, folks can bring their own ideas/routines to perform, share, sell or trade. Hope to see you there! No dues, no rules, no agenda, just lots of Gospel magic (and the allied arts) fun!

I have made up 20 of the complete "Gospel paddles"- only using items purchased from Dollar Tree and Dollar General stores. I will be selling them at the above meeting all assembled for the barn burning price of $3.00, even includes the carrying case.

Well, we had about 22 show up for the meeting above, I only have a few "Gospel Paddles" left. We had a great time. I sent one paddle to FCM President Del Wilson, another one to Duane Laflin. Maybe the routine will get published someplace now (but then again, after all, it is only a pretty common paddle trick). Our next KaZoo FCM meeting will be May 11, 2013 at 10AM- all welcome to join us!

Hope to see you at the November meeting. We had 60 show up for the free Gospel magic show last Saturday morning at the apartment housing complex, wow, was really wonderful. MagicBob and SuZie did a great job. We also enjoyed perfect weather for the afternoon show at the bandshell, the organizers have already decided to do it again next year Smile

All invited to the FCM meeting in Grand Rapids on this Saturday at MagicBob's place. See above. Trick builder Randy Craven will be there with lots of stuff for sale including dove effects. I will have my Lance Richardson "The Web" illusion for sale for the ridiculously low price of $300. Everyone invited, bring stuff to sell and share. You do not have to be a FCM member to attend.

Thanks to everyone- our Saturday KaZoo Chapter of the FCM meeting in Grand Rapids was terrific- two hours of magic non-stop and the time really flew by. I headed out right after the meeting to watch the Michigan/Nebraska football fiasco in Ann Arbor, so it was wonderful to have at least started the day out well with the FCM first. Anyone interested in purchasing Lance Richardson's "The Web" illusion- MagicBob is holding on to it for me and it is up for sale. I can't do the trick because of my "girth"- so if you are on the slim side and looking for a cheapo and easy to pack illusion, contact MagicBob or myself.

We had a nice turn out of eager kids last Saturday, the clubhouse meeting room pretty much filled. SuZie did face painting, MagicBob and myself did a 50 minute Gospel magic show.

Our KaZoo Chapter of the FCM probably will not be meeting in July. Our next meeting most likely will be Saturday, September 13, 2014, from 10AM-Noon at Lighthouse Community Church, 4321 S. 11th Street, Kalamazoo, Michigan. Contact me (Roger) if you'd like to lecture for us in September. Psalm 67 everyone!

We most likely (the KaZoo Chapter of the FCM) will not be meeting again in 2014 due to my extra added responsibilities at my church (I am a full time attorney, plus working many hours a week at our church which I greatly enjoy. Our senior pastor is leaving in 2 weeks to head up all missions nationally in a major U.S. denomination, he will be fantastic there, and we in Kalamazoo will greatly miss this dear servant and leader). We (the KaZoo Chapter of the FCM) will meet if someone else from our Chapter heads up/plans the meeting, obtains our lecturer, etc. (and our church still can be used as our regular meeting place).

So sorry about the delay, see you all in 2015 KaZoo Chapter of the FCM (probably start meeting again as soon as January, 2015). If any Chapter members would like to plan a September or October 2014 meeting, just let me know, and you certainly have my trust to do that and we can still use the same nice meeting room at my home church.
