President Taggert has a proposal to launch a Youth Affiliate program for the Washington DC area. He would like to urge each and every Ring member to do their best to attract and retain members from ten to eighteen years of age to come to the Ring meetings. They would be non-voting members, but would assist on committees, participate in shows, attend Ring seminars, learn magic skills, or improve their magic techniques.
Be sure to get registered for Magi-Whirl 2008 before the price increase on March 16. Magi-Whirl 2008 will be held March 28 & 29 in Alexandria Virginia at the Bishop Ireton High School. It will feature four lectures, three close-up performances, ten magic dealers, and a Gala evening show. For details see the Ring 50 web site: www.Magi-Whirl.Org.
