You don't want to miss the Erik Tait lecture to be held March 8 at 7:00 pm at the Plymouth Community Arts Council. AAMC, Detroit and Toledo Magic Club members get in for only $10. Others are only $20. Hosted by the Ann Arbor Magic Club, this event will replace our normal monthly meeting. It is at the same time and location as our normally scheduled meeting.
Erik Tait has won awards for both standup comedy and magic throughout North America, appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool Us and was the 2018 current International Brotherhood of Magicians Gold Cups Close Up Competition Champion. He took home 3rd place at FISM Quebec 2022, the world championships of magic, in the category of card magic. Erik is only the fourth American to accomplish this, and the first American to stand on the podium for card magic in two decades. Erik hails from Wausau Wisconsin, which he doesn’t remember because he left it when he was very young. A top graduate of the Comedy Writing and Performance Program at Humber College in Toronto, Erik is currently the only magician in the world with a college degree in hilarious and can academically prove he is hysterical. His client list has some of the most recognizable brands in the country including Honda, Macy’s, and Bark Box.

Last Month's Events
The Club hosted an Open House at the Plymouth Library on Saturday February 18th. The purpose was to attract new members and to generate interest in the upcoming Parlor Shows. The turnout was fantastic! Club members performed continuously for a steady stream of kids and parents. A big thank you to Bob Goodwin for conceiving the idea and all the volunteers that helped him put this together, performed, made signs, etc.
We were lucky to have professional photographer Erin Hannum on hand to take these wonderful pictures. Check out her website at https://www.erinhannum.com. Erin is the daughter of new member Mark Phelps. These photos may not be used without crediting Erin.
