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!

Now I feel a little dumb, I just did a brief history of Wheels for the Circus 4 Youth web site & I know although I didn't cover that in the story, Lee & I did discuss it. I may be wrong but I think Dominic has the Luxem Wheel, now I'll have to check that out.

Dominic's wheel was the second one built by the inventor Clay Beckett, it was bought by Hennie "Celeste" Luxem, & worked by her nephew Johnny, due to a disagreement she took the wheel back & sold it to Giraldos, it was later purchased by Bauer.
