Guest Speaker -
Our Speaker this month will be Mr Dustin Marks. He is, without question, one the most successful blackjack cheaters in history. Possessing an uncanny ability to remain calm under pressure and the talent to perform undetectable sleight of hand under fire, he was employed as a blackjack dealer by several well-known casinos in Las Vegas during the 1980s. While under the watchful eye of casino surveillance systems and pit bosses, he beat the casinos and WAS NEVER CAUGHT!
Dustin Marks is the author of several well-known books, including 'Cheating at Blackjack' and 'Cheating at Blackjack Squared', both of which have been updated (2016) and combined to create the seminal work on blackjack-cheating techniques.

Raffle -
There will be a 50/50 raffle for cash and/or prizes which is quite fun!
If you are not yet a member or your membership has lapsed, I invite you to join the SNCCC. Annual membership is only $12.00 payable at the door. You are, of course, welcome as a guest to see what we’re all about and you can bring your friends as well!!!!!!!!!!

Our meetings are pretty short, which gives you lots of time to socialize and gain knowledge about whatever interests you about casino memorabilia and collectables.

On behalf of the SNCCC, I sincerely hope you will join us and hope to talk to everyone there.
