    Opening night in Lousivlle, KY was great last night--Col. Sanders was honored as guest Ringmaster. Plans for today-- Lunch with Suitcase Sam, and then another show tonight.

    Plans for tomorrow, three shows, and then hanging out with my parents and Knute.

    Hello to you in the center ring!

    I looked at Ringling Bros. website and saw that you'll be coming to San Diego around the middle of July. That's awesome! That's where I'm from. I'm glad you're having such a great time with the circus.

    wonderful Lily.

    Providence, Rhode Island was great... survived my first working sixpak weekend... three shows saturday three shows sunday.

    On Tuesday before our opening several of our cast members went to Boston, Massachusetts to see Big Apple Circus.Where I was able to spend time with a good friend and fellow clown-forum member DJ who works as a member of their ring crew.

    Now we are in Hartford, Connecticut... next up Trenton, New Jersey... and then a week break between Trenton and Hershey, PA.

    You are really making a lot of zig-zag trips up and down the east coast. What were the dates for Hershey? Hopefully I can keep that free for a roadtrip.

    The show typically plays Cleveland for 8-10 days in mid to late October just before Chicago (for the four week November run - split between Allstate Arena in Rosemont and the United Center on the West Side) in it's first year of the tour. Since he's on a show that is on its first year, that is when it would be there this year. Last year, though, I think they threw a Pennsylvania date between these two cities.

    They also play Grand Rapids, but usually near the end of the two year run. So, that would put the Red Unit there sometime like September of 2012. (You'll have the Blue Unit - "Barnum's Funundrum" - there this year.)

    Ft. Wayne is too small (or at least must not have an arena large enough) to book in the big shows, but might occasionally attract the Gold unit.

    Ultimately, the answer to any questions about, "When will the show be.....(insert city here)?" is to watch the Ringling website. Once there is an official announcement, that's the place you will find a listing.

    A good way to track (no pun intended) historic jump patterns (as well as ongoing intercity movement) is to join the yahoo circustrain group.

    Tim, you are right. Ringling had a really good habit of coming into town around my Birthday when I lived near Chicago and if I recall, they also made a November run in Toledo. Yes, they will be coming to Cleveland in October...And with friends in the area, it will be just a hop skip and a jump away for me.
