BOARD MINUTES FOR MARCH 10, 2014

The following members were in attendance: Brad Borland, Michael Baker, Jay

Zenko, Dr. Jerry Tupper and Rodney Nordstrom.

Members not present were Grant Golden and Kyle Bassett.

Our meeting started with approval of the board minutes for February 3rd, by

unanimous agreement.

I. OLD BUSINESS

APOLLO

The Apollo Theatre possibility was revisited. It was the general consensus

of the board that we should proceed with additional information from the Apollo and that

it would be a HOUDINI TRIBUTE. It was also discussed that we need a partner with a

local group to help with attendance and possible defray some cost. Naturally, in the

event we have a partner on this endeavor some sort of monetary split would be

expected. Rodney will continue to update the board on developments and report at the

next meeting. October 25th

was discussed as a possible date. Expo Gardens was

identified as a back-up plan.

BOY SCOUTS

Jerry Tupper has made contact with Brian Ualenhopt from the Boy Scouts. We

are planning an event on October 25th

at the Opera House at Expo Gardens primarily

toward teaching magic to youngsters. It was also discussed about the possibility of the

Boy Scouts earning a merit badge for their attendance and participation. Other youth

agencies could attend if they wish. Jerry will continue to work with the Boy Scouts while

board members will attempt to identify other groups who might want to participate in the

magic training on October 25th

.

BRADLEY BASKETBALL HALF TIME SHOW

No discussion. This topic was tabled.

LIBRARIES

Rodney reported that he is still pursuing the opportunity to present magic at the

local libraries. He will continue to develop this opportunity for local magicians to present

for one hour at various libraries.

Jerry indicated that he contacted Dave Osborn about the use of Troublefree as a

place for our lectures. Jerry said that David was acceptable with that.

THE ANNUAL SHOW ON APRIL 5TH

A final list of performers was prepared by Michael Baker. Performers and the

amount of time allotted to each were agreed upon. Michael Baker also indicated he had

a contract with the sound and lighting provider for the same terms as last year. The

evening show will consist of Ken Tassalar, Gambit, D’Nordo, C J Diamond, Michael

Baker, Jerry Tupper, Grant Golden and Troy Keefer. The matinee show will be the

same performers and adding Troy Keefer’s son, James, to the performers list.

TREASURER’S REPORT

Brad Borland, our Treasurer, reported that we made a $175.60 from our auction

last week. Our ending balance for February was approximately $4,400.

II. NEW BUSINESS

Rodney said we were asked to perform at the Farmer’s Market by Sharon

Graham every other Saturday morning as we have done at the riverfront for the last

three years. It would start June 14, 2014 and be the 2nd

and 4th

Saturdays thereafter.

MEDIA

Rodney will contact all media late March regarding the April 5th

show.

INSURANCE

Rodney will call SAM at IBM for insurance quotes for the main events this year.

PEORIA MUSEUM

Rodney and Michael met with the director of the Peoria Museum. We might have

the opportunity to do a show(s) during Ripley’s Believe It Or Not month in September.

The location is not ideal but does offer close-up opportunities on a 50 ft. screen.
