CHS Convention in Cincinnati
The evening's activities featured the GRAND CHS auction. There were hundreds of items from a bullhook to coveralls to major posters. Al Stenecell and John Polacsek were the auctioneers with assistance from Kristin Spangenberg and Leslie Wagner.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
