The second Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm
Well it’s FUN!
June 9th at 7:30pm
There has been a slight change for June, we are still meeting at 7:30 at the Firehouse, but I have decided to switch October and June meetings, so this month is “Show Your Signature Trick.” You know the one I’m talking about…the one that everyone talks about. Your signature trick or routine is the one to perform most often or the one that is always in your pocket and you perform in line at the market. You do it best most likely because you enjoy performing it most; therefore people enjoy watching it more because you are more enthusiastic when performing it. Humm…interesting how that works. Dave will be running the meeting this month as I will be unable to make it.
The Web Site – Pictures of the last meeting
Want to see pictures of the last meeting, visit www.sam24.org. Please take a moment if you have not and fill-in or update your member information. Compeer Dave MacDonald has worked long hours and produced a fantastic website. He also updated the clip of the month which shows Doug Henning performing sawing on the Tonight Show with the late Johnny Carson. Nice twist on a sawing, of course done in Henning style!
We have had several meetings on our new annual fundraiser. Compeer Willis White is looking into a location for us at the Saratoga Elks Club. This venue has a raised platform and an ideal space for to accommodate an audience. IT is possible that we will perform two shows in two locations over a one week period. More details will come as we secure a location. Thanks you to Willis and Bob Connors for looking into these possible venues.
