In the mid 1970 to late 1970. I worked on the dirt crew with Heinz S. at the C.N.E. We would set up the rides months before the show opened and cleaned up the place. I worked with Flip before he died on the coster he worked on. Does anyone remember Jim McSorely and what he used to say "Put some at into it" Those where the best times I ever had. Pat

It all started in the summer of 92 . My mother couldnt contain my angst no longer and figured that my father and the laws of the midway would straighten me out . And it did . I was rough around the edges back then .If you cant remember me by name or face im sure you recognize my legs sticking out from the top of a trash can . I had a real mouth on me . I started out in Calgary Alberta in 92, Hippy worked on the Wild River Raft back then. My first job was for Terry Benze dragging stock for the games. After i got cut loose i had many many jobs , Baloon boy,ladder jockey,ring toss,gopher,paintball dummy for igor, and at long last i settled in on Ed Porcellis Gravitron . I look back on my days with Conklin as serving boot camp to prepare me for the rest of my life.Eva denise varey was buffys daughter and my first girlfriend (candy concession).I always was close to Donny Jail, Dozer and T,Randy from the wildcat,plenty of the ride jocks and game goons from the early 90s era,the freaks and geeks from Don Wesley's sideshow unit Leonard Waford and Yankees son Paul Miss Linda Brewer my teacher at the academy - But of course i remember too many other people to list in this little box. They always say it takes a village to raise a child and its true for if it werent for these people and more i would not be who i am today.I last saw my father the day he jack knifed Frank's brand new popcorn wagon in Madison Wisconsin in the summer of 95 enroute to Winnipeg from Westchester county.. He was cut loose from conklin that day and my whole world came crumbling around me .The last i heard from Hippy was new years eve of 95 turning 96. I never heard from him since and to my knowledge nobody else has either.If you see him give him a slug in the jaw from me and tell him i say hello. Theres simply too much story to tell and allot to catch up on so if you remember me give me a hollar . You can find me at (email) or find me Myspace.com under the following URL : http://www.myspace.com/panzerangel or at my music site at http://www.myspace.com/risingsunrevolution contact me under the subject conklin so it gets my attention . i would welcome anyone who finds me and wishes to say hello .. and i do miss all of you .

I started out working on the games for Dave and then moved to kiddy rides for John and a bit for Donny. I had alot of wild experiences(thanks to Shawn Berube). I made alot of friends, some I still keep in touch with, and I learned alot. I remember workin hard, livin in the "possum belly inn" with Az and Matt, getting escorted off the grounds in T.O. (I became famous for that one),riding from town to town in the truck with John and the others, and having a blast over all. It really was a life changing experience-one I will never forget. Every year I still get the "itch" to go, you carnies know what I'm talking about, admit it! But I have a whole new life now, thanks to a beautiful 6 year old daughter, she is my whole world now, and I wouldn't trade her for anything. Still, I will always look on my show days as one of the best jobs I've ever had and some of the best times of my life.
