Re: Family in California Seeking Magic Castle Experience!

If you are a member of the SAM or IBM, you should be able to get in (with dinner reservations). In the past (maybe due to the Larsen family/Genii connection) you could get in if you were a Genii subscriber... probably not anymore (?)

Good Luck !
