RING 22 members, please register/login to access all features on this site!

We're not your typical magic club, and thanks to the imaginative ideas and invaluable input from our members, we've added some great website features and scheduled some awesome magic activities in the coming months.   Of course, we also have a few more "tricks up our sleeve" that you'll be enjoying in the near future!  Here's just a brief summary:

  • We are predicting the best year ever in 2020, and we are always thankful and appreciative for YOUR continued participation and support.  Don't miss our FIRST CLUB MEETING of 2020 on TUESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2019, at 7:15 PM!   As always, members and guests are welcome to join us!  Let's keep the ball rollin'  - be a part of the best magic club in Michigan (please forgive the admittedly biased opinion)!
  • It's that time of year again, and RING 22's  all new Membership Drive 2020! has officially begun!   Created with YOU in mind, we are currently offering specially reduced membership registration fees for the upcoming year 2020,  including incentives for early registration as well as sponsoring and recruiting new members!  For more information, please be sure to visit our Membership Drive 2020! page.
  • Our recent SPECIAL-SUPER-SPECTACULAR-HOLIDAY CLUB MEETING last TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2019, was a MAGICAL EXTRAVAGANZA with a remarkable 43 members and guests attending.   Everyone shared plenty of informal fun, frolic, food (including non-alcoholic beverages), and of course, festive cheer as RING 22 celebrated a truly magical year in 2019. 
  • By now everyone is familiar with our new location and all of our club events (meetings and guest lectures) are hosted in our new home at the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 749 W. 14 Mile Rd., Clawson, MI 48017. Our new and convenient location is only a few blocks from downtown Clawson, on 14 Mile Road just five blocks West of Main Street. The new "digs" look great and we are extremely excited to be hosting all of our future activities at our new "magic castle"!  Best of all, while Michigan weather can at times be unpredictably hot and humid at any time of year, ALL of our activities will now be held in the fully-air conditioned WELCOME CENTER of the facility, with easy access using the main entryway! Rest assured, EVERYONE will enjoy our magic events regardless of Mother Nature! 
  • We've also found a new "nightspot" for our members and guests to converse after every activity - The HideOut.   The restaurant is only three blocks away, directly on 14 Mile Rd., serving excellent but affordable food and beverages until 1 AM - hope to see you all there after our next event!
  • Our last lecture of the year, featuring master magician MIKE POWERS was an enormous success, with 30 members attending the lecture and 20 members joining MIKE afterwards for more magic at The HideOut!  Thanks again for your unrelenting support of our efforts.  Don't worry, there'll be some outstanding lectures again next year - stay tuned!
  • We are always posting new items of interest in our exclusive "Members-Only" area of our website.  Members ares strongly encouraged to officially register and log in to gain access to all of the links available in our Secret Stuff drop-down menu -- you'll be so glad you did!  The page contains loads of great advice, tutorials, video clips, effects, and more! 
  • Our recent JOHN CAREY Lecture featuring England's foremost magician with a "license to thrill" was an enormous success, with 39 members and guests attending.  Afterwards, JOHN "sessioned" with about 20 or so members at The HideOut.  Thanks to everyone for your tremendous support, and rest assured - more exciting events are on the way!
  • If any RING 22 members are hosting or performing in a special magical event, please let us know - we'd love to help and support your efforts!
  • A Magicians for Hire page listing professional magicians who are available and seeking performing opportunities is now posted and viewable for all of our website visitors!
  • An Online Members Directory (containing contact information for those members who wish to be included) is now available for RING 22 members who have officially registered and logged into this site -- find it in the  Secret Stuff drop-down menu!
  • Our fully functional and secure ONLINE Paypal Option is up and running for our web viewers, making payments for yearly membership dues and specific lectures fast, easy, and convenient -- look for it in the Membership drop-down menu!
  • Many new and exciting innovations are yet to come -- we'll be sharing them with you at future club events!
