|Topic: Alabama Magicians (north al)|
Howdy, I am in Northern Alabama in the boonies midway between Huntsville and Birmingham near Guntersville Lake if you know the area. The largest town closer than those is Gadsden (not sure of the size).
I am returning to magic after a 20 or so year hiatus.
I am posting this to the North Alabama Magicians to see who feels they have an active club out there that could use a new member...someone seeking advice on getting the business end of the show up and running, someone who would like to be involved in assisting in the running of the club--eventually, I would like to hear from any members of clubs within 100 mi or so that feel I would fit in.
(I would also like to hear a little about what you actually do at your club meetings, how long they tend to last, etc.)
Thanks in advance for any posts...feel free to PM me esp if there is something you would rather not blurt out openly...
PS, I am posting a similar message in the IBM topic section, not sure of the etiquette involved here but it is not meant to reflect any negative intents. I am sure many IBM members are also SAM members as well so I figure it is fine. Note: I was a SAM member 20 or so years ago, was not near a SAM Ring so never have had any actual meetings though.
Thanks, Rick Jackson
Rick...I posted a similar response in the IBM section for those who don't check this one out.
I'm not sure if SAM has an Assembly group in your area or not. You can contact Richard Hinze, the South Atlantic (AL, FL, GA, MS, NC, SC) Regional Vice President, at email@example.com and he can help you find out if one exists.
You're in luck as far as the IBM, which has Rings in both Birmingham and Huntsville, so you can take your pick or join both! Here are the contact people. They will be able to help you.
