Hello everyone.
I hope everyone had a great summer. Although we all had to experience an unusual year with the pandemic issues, we still managed to put forth an excellent lineup of virtual lectures and meetings on Zoom last year. Fortunately, things seem to be getting better with the vaccinations, however, with the current protocols in place we will need to start our meetings virtually this year, at least for the first few months. Also, since The Binkley Church has closed, we currently do not have a location for our in-person
meetings yet.
The executive has booked some virtual lectures to start the year and we are working on filling in the rest of the months. It is difficult to plan the 2022 months as we are uncertain if these will be in-person or virtual.

Below is a listing of our Executive for the new year, and our tentative line up of meetings.

2021 – 2022 Executive
Past President Scott Hood
President Doug Hunt
Vice-President Corey O’Shaughnessy
Treasurer Victor Staniewski
Social/Coffee Scott Hood

If anyone is interested in joining the executive, we are more than happy to have you assist as there are roles that you would be able to take on.

Membership Fees
The fees for the year will remain at the discounted price of $20 for the 2021/2022 year. The reduction in membership fees will continue this year since several the meetings will be virtual on Zoom. The membership fee can be paid by E-transfer and email to magicvictor@live.com, or mail the cheque payable to Doug Henning Magic Wand Club:
Victor Staniewski
7162 Hallsands Drive
Mississauga, ON
L5N 7S6

The September lecture will feature Chip Romano who will be doing a Doug Henning night. Chip has been a collector of Doug Henning magic and will be showing and explaining many of the items that he holds.

The October lecture will feature Old Jeff Pinsky from Browser’s Den of Magic, who will provide a dealer’s demo on some of the newer magic at the shop. In addition, Young Jeff will be performing magic tricks for our club.

Meeting Schedule and Activities 2021 – 2022
We are trying to provide a good variety of events for our meetings. Below is the tentative schedule for the year. As noted above there will be no meetings in person for the first three meetings in 2021. These meetings will be done on Zoom and we will send an email with instructions prior to the meetings.
