Rings meet in a lot of places, resturants, school Caféterias, other clubs club houses, Church halls, back of magic stores. etc. The Dallas Ring meets at a speciality store at a Dallas Mall. It is quite possible some ring has its own club house, I'm just not personally aware of one.

Our Ring (just over a year old) has met at a community center, two different restaurants, a bakery, and for an upcoming meeting, we are meeting in a (very large) church basement.

We will need a few more public shows and raffles before we buy our own magical arts center with clubhouse, theater and spa, that's for sure.

Yours,

Paul

We meet at a fire station (thus our name, the Northwest Ring of Fire).

Meeting in the Fire Station has nothing to do with our name (I hope). Living in the geological Ring of Fire (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Ring_of_Fire ) does.

Most rings aren't large, nor stable enough to warrant purchasing a "Clubhouse" Even the grand daddy of all fraternal organizations, The Masons, are liquidating much of their real estate due to the massive reduction of their membership in the past few years.

Clubs owning things is always s sticky situation. There has been much discussion as to what became of the Seattle rings extensive library after that clubs collapse and demise. Particularly because they're were some rare and expensive volumes in it. What would be the fate of a clubhouse and all it's holdings when the club's membership declined substantially?

Very cool! I had been told otherwise, but I like this explanation much better. Thanks Payne!

I realize most rings meet in strange and borrowed places. Our ring here in Akron has met in 4 or 5 different restaurants over the past ten or so years. We are looking for a place to rent as a club house in the near future and I was just wondering if any other clubs had a home.

Ring 364 in Boise meets at The Funny Bone Comedy Club. Since the weekend business is brisk for them, their day to be closed is Monday. We use the facility on the night they are closed. It provides us with a stage, lights, sound system, and plenty of seating.

The use of the facility is given to us for free. In return, magicians will show up on comedy nights and work the crowds as they are getting seated. This turns out to be a big win-win for both the comedy club and the magic club. They get free entertainment, we get a free facility. We get exposure and practice, as well as a facility to put on our annual club performance for the public.

Until we appear again,

The closest thing to a club house in my state has been two magic shops have provided club rooms for several organizations to use. Both shops now are gone and so the club rooms.
Believe you then that I do strange things
