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!

Robert (Bobby) Jon Wainman passed away Oct. 19th. I don't know if you know him. He lost both his legs and is always in a wheel chair at the club. He was a concessionaire Ticket taker you name it. Services are being handled by Covell Funeral home in Bradenton. Day and date will be announced later. He is well known at the club.
I remember him, and I also remember in spite of everything, he always had a smile on his face. Sleep well Bobby!!!!

Bobby was a great man. He worked for Bill and I on the Great American in 1985 in the Concession Department. And we always considered him a friend. He will be missed! Dick Dykes

Good friend for many years and all around show guy. With it and for it in every way. Never cried the blues thru it all. Started on Ringling working on front door under canvas for Rudy Bundy. I met him in early 70s when he was center ring prop boss on Ringling Blue. He did it all thru the years and was a fiend to everyone. A great guy and showman. We will miss you Bobby. One of the real "Good Guys".
