I started working on the Rotor then worked on the Zipper. After that worked on the Music Express. Next built the Polar Express (with lots of help in sunny Ft.Lauterdale with some of the best guy's I ever worked with) After being a ride guy I went into games. Next got into food (Fruit Shake)Have to say after all these years still miss the friendship of all the people that I worked with. I hope that if any other people that I knew from back in those day's see this they could email me. It would be nice to stay intouch.

I got a good job, good money. Bought a house and a couple of cars. Joanne and I got married and had a second child. We miss the road and think about our experiences out there, but it was time to grow up and move on. What a life lesson!

I worked for a game operator named Rick Derusha many years back (1978?) in Winnipeg at the Red River Exhibition at his game which featured ring toss on to stretched (by high heat)) colored water Pepsi bottles. I worked with an employee named Robert Taylor back then, whom I have worked with for the past three years for an Event Security company in Toronto. Rob and I got to talking while working a big concert event last summer at Downsview Park and we figured it out that we both worked for Rick at his game that year. Rob was working for Rick going across Western Canada with his stretched Pepsi bottle game and I was picked by Rick in Winnipeg to work at the game while the Ex was happening in Winnipeg. It's kind of an interesting re-connection for Rob and I some 34? years later and we were just wondering if you had any info about Rick and whether he is still around? Thanks, Dave Thompson, Niagara Falls, ON - My Email address is: afcent@sympatico.ca I hope someone will get back to me, both Rob and I are very interested in finding out this info.
