Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

THE KELROYS # 2



These are a couple snapshots I took of the Kelroys, Ron, Ernie, Ivy, & Joan, warming up for their juggling number, & dressed for the trampoline act, on Hoxie Bros. I believe in the late '60's.

Worked for Ron Kelroy on and off for 3 years or so. Along the same timeline worked for Ray "Slick" Valentine.
One night, after we packed up, in New Braunfels, TX we had a "session" and on the show were such luminaires as Corky Plunkett, "Oklahoma" Red Gates, and of course our leader "Slick Valentine. AQn unofficial poll was taken, discussion ensued, and the "Bounding Kelroys" act was voted the worst trampoline act in the buisness, as they never even turned a somersault! Who am I to argue with such authorities???!
Pete, the Baraboobian!
