March brings us Techno Magic -  magic that uses some form of technology.  This could be a mobile device, remote control, email, fax machine, laser, GPS unit, hidden electronics, or some other cool technology.    As we do at every meeting, anyone who performs to theme will earn 5 Mark Wilson bucks and a chance to win a free $20 gift certificate to


Our meeting will start with two opening acts:  Tricky Devil (Thi Dinh) and Everett Gomez.  Our top raffle prize for the evening is Dean's Beads (DVD + Gimmick), with a retail value of $35.  We will also accept additional nominations for the 2012-2013 officers.


We will not be having our traditional teach-a-trick, but instead will present a short lecture calledVirtual Technology and How It Can Help a Magician.  This mini lecture will overview some of the free, or virtually free, online tools Magicians can use to promote, organize and manage their magic.


Here are some of the topics:

·        How to create a free website.

·        How to get your own customized web and email address for less than $15 a year.

·        How to create a free business phone number and voicemail system.

·        Free tools for collaboration, lists and writing.

·        Facebook and Twitter benefits.
