wishes to all of the winners.
have been taken to task for my previous comments regarding this
election. While I admit to being angry at the outcome, if anyone
has a question about what actually took place, I suggest you contact
Jack Delvin who will be happy to provide you with the facts. I
am not going to comment any further. The elections are over, and
we all need to move on.
did not mean to imply that Alan Shaxon, our illustrious president,
or anyone else for that matter, was involved in any rule-breaking.
reporting the actions of others, It was never my intention to
cast a bad light on anyone, particularly Alan, who has been and
continues to be a fine president and representative of our Society.
would I want to shed a negative light on our Recording Officer
who oversees these matters.
equally important, I want to apologize to Chris Pratt for any
remarks that have been posted here which call into question his
ethics or reputation. We appreciate and acknowledge the fact that
Chris has been an admirable Secretary for our Society for the
past 22 years, and I take full responsibility for any potentially
damaging remarks that have appeared here.
sincerely apologize to anyone who may feel I have been less that
forthright in my comments and their implications. That has never
been my intention.
hindsight, I should have remained completely neutral in my handling
of the facts, and assure all members that in the future, I will
remain so, and simply allow others to say their piece without
comment or color from me.

Council has requested that we keep this top secret information
out of the hands of non-members of The Magic Circle. They have
suggested that we use a password protected area...
a result, we have decided to place this gate up, and you must
know the password, or you are not worthy of entering.
all, this is valuable and important material, including sensitive,
personal information and possible even secrets of the art of magic,
or of our Society. Therefore, this is a step we can take to keep
it out of the hands of the general public. This
is ONLY for members of The Magic Circle...
the USER NAME is "member". No caps, just lower case.
I can't tell you that, you have to figure it out. And to be sure
that only members of The Magic Circle can get into this secret
place, we have made the password something that ONLY a member
current Vice-President. We only want the last name, and again,
