Paul & Diane,
It was GREAT to see you and talk to you again, on your visit to WB! Hopefully it won't be another 8 years before we see each other again!
My best to you both!

Paul: A great shot of the arena. All the daylight must make it interesting for some acts. Lane Talburt

This is the "Red Unit" of Hamid Circus, Inc. playing in WB. The "Blue Unit" was in Wichita, KS for the weekend, and the "Green Unit" was in the new England area doing the "Maine dates".
Units willreunite in Binghamton, NY after this weekend. "Blue" will be in Des Moines, IA & "Green" will be in West Springfield, MA.
Buisness has been spectacular all Spring, for all concerned! Attendance has been up most every place, and revenue has defintely been up! What recession???
Hamid's always put on a great show, and will ALWAYS have those "round things", commonly known as rings!!!
Interesting building to play: Daylight shows are just that: daylight! Try doing a "light pitch" in this!!!
Accoustics are horrible, at best, no matter who you have announcing, or what kind of sound system you have!
Pete, the Baraboobian!

Rumor has it that Hamids will send their gold unit to Europe, too. This way all the circuses with gold units can hire one freighter to cross the Atlantic.
Some snide remarkers are calling the attempt at bringing the Ringling Gold to Europe the Titanic Unit, for obvious reasons.
Word to all the fine shows in Europe,"You have nothing to worry about!"

Are they bringing elephants and Page's cats to Europe? DR Miller would get a kick out of knowing his elephants would be touring around Paris, France instead of Paris, Texas.
For the very small minority of Europeans who have heard of Ringling they will be sorely disappointed when the Gold Unit arrives and unload a couple of semis of equipment instead of a mile long train with 18 elephants, 14 tigers, 2 flying acts and three rings of everything imaginable.
