The on-line presence of Ring 41 (Milwaukee, WI), of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. The I.B.M. is the world's largest organization of the magical arts! Ring 41 was founded in 1945, and our goal is to advance the art of professional magic through instruction and to up-hold the terms of our Charter. Welcome aboard!
Today I report the the news that long time member, Bob Slazer, has been recovering at home from a recent illness.
Shortly after the September meeting, Bob was taken ill. The reports are good and Bob is recouperating at home with the help of Ruth and his family and friends. Please add Bob to your list for prayers and get well cards. We hope to see Bob back at our club meetings as soon as he is fully recovered.
On December 18th., 2011, Ring 41, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, released version 1 of their new mobile phone app for the Windows Phone OS. The app is in the English language only, but was release worldwide in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Already, the app has been downloaded by phone users in 12 different countries around the world.
The app's main feature is a direct RSS feed to the front page of our existing website at www.ibmring41.com . Our website is updated on a regular basis, so the app is always up-to-date on the current club news. The app also has contact information for our Officers so that any out of town magicians can easily get in touch with our group. We also include links to many of our members websites, making it easy to find a magician for your next gathering. Since we like to promote our art of magic, we have also included links to other local magicians websites, regardless of membership in our club.
Jan 17th Christmas Dinner
I hope everyone is settling into the cold weather. Let's try not to slip on any ice this year. Christmas is coming along with all the other holidays this time of year brings and that means a lot of extra work for some of us. That's a good thing. We will not be having a regular meeting this month so spend some time with your family or the people you love (just in case they are not the same), and try to stay warm.
We tried to get a Holiday party for this month but we couldn't get a good date, sorry. The good news is that you can't stop us from having magical fun and we will have that Holiday party but it will be next month on January 17th, 2015.
As a special holiday bonus, our Christmas Dinner will be held jointly with the membership of The Houdini Club of Wisconsin. We have a large carry over membership, so we are killing two-birds with one stone. It should be a great gathering.
You can read all about the party on the website, where we have more details.
We will again have a magical entertainment and maybe a few surprises in store for you.
On another note, as previously mentioned, we have a vacancy for Vice President. I have made a special apppoinment, and I'm please to announce that Scott Lane will fill in on the VP duities until May 2015 when new nominations for the board are made. Please thank Scott when you see him. And also thank Big Guy for his service to the group for the past several years as our VP.
See you then, Happy Holidays to all of you!
