                             May meeting
           We are hoping members will be willing share some of their favorite,  most unusual, or  most useful apparatus.  Apparatus can be anything you use to perform magic.  It can be big or small.  Anything from a gaffed penny to a box for producing an elephant.  If you can demonstrate or perform with the apparatus, great!  If not just bring it to show.  If you have a piece of apparatus which baffles you -  you don't know what it's for or how it works - bring it along and stump the chumps.  

          Dues are due.   $25.00
