The SIM's next meeting (and last before the two month summer recess) will take place in Cassidys Hotel on Tuesday 5th June. Meeting proper starts at 8pm. Room will be open from 7:30 for Bring and Buy.
Bring and Buy
Members have previously suggested that they would like to have a Bring & Buy session at the beginning of meetings. So here is our first one.
You are invited to bring a handful of items which you can sell from your chair or bag. The idea is for this to be informal. We don't want people coming along with rakes of stuff and turning it into a mini auction. It is as it "says on the tin". This is something teh commitee of The SIM hope may become a regular occurrence.
Emerald Magic Dealer Dem
Pat Fallon recently re-branded his dealing business as Emerald Magic and has some new original effects on the market. Pat will present mini Dealer Dem and will have effects, cards, rope etc for sale. So make sure you don't spend all your money at the Bring & Buy.
Richard McDougall Lecture
Richard McDougall has been a professional magician for over twenty years, having trained in mime and physical theatre. He is a Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, and has won awards at FISM and the Desert Seminar, and was a former winner of the World Open for Close Up Magic. He has been lucky enough to perform his close up and stage magic in 40 countries, and at a number of events hosted by HM The Queen, as well as for HRH The Prince of Wales at his 50th birthday.
As well as giving lectures to magicians on the subject of performance, Richard also presents keynote speeches and training for the business community in presentation skills, and in particular on the subject of body language. Last year he lectured to wide acclaim at The Essential Magic Conference. Expect a fun, informative and thought provoking evening.
The evening is free to fully paid up members of The SIM. For non-member bone-fide magicians admission is €15.
