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!

FROM KIM SUE:NORTH OF THE NORTH POLE

Kim & Vlastek made it to the far North in time to open with Billy Martin's Annual, "Cole, All Star Snow Mobile Run", of upstate New York.


January 10 - Dateline Salamanca, NY...Preview performance of Billy Martin's Cole All-Star Circus. Official opening is January 11 - appropriately, founder James M. Cole's birthday. Marking the 70th anniversary of the indoor production (and the 30th consecutive visit in Salamanca). On hand are Bill & Bev Galloway - all around show friends. Bill as congenial guest services supervisor, box office coordinator, part-time billposter, butcher, purchasing agent, special guest cameo appearances throughout the performance, assistant to the producer and second general manager, and his wonderful wife Bev, who somehow puts up with it all and still finds time to bake brownies for cast and crew!

Kim and Vlastik,

It's nice to see your back in NY. Andrew has been asking when he can play with Vincent so let me know when and where we can see the show.
Please give my best to Billy and the gang.

Thanks, Kevin Rolf
