Big M Shows used to go to Calgary, Red Deer, and Edmonton with Conklin. We met alot of interesting people. Had alot of great times. Our show was small compared to them but they always made us feel like we were #1. Thanks to all the Conklin family for all the years you shared with us. By the way "John John". Vanessa is lookin for you too. Could this be the the beginning of another story??

My friend Dianne(clyde) and I just graduated as Social Workers and wanted to do something totally differrent for the summer. We saw an ad that stated fun, excitement, travel. Join the Carnival. So we did. We actually started working for CanAm Amusements with the Markley's. They couldn't get into a few spots in the states and that's when we worked for Conklin. I had such a blast during those years and wouldn't trade it for a second. Of course the trip to the island was so great. My first taste of the tropics. Wintered in Florida at winter quarters and got to experience spring break. Loved working with the Southern Comfort Crew and a big shout out to all. Terri e-mail me. I married Dewayne Brown and have one son. We divorced and I have been married to Jeff for 21 yrs. We live in sunny Kelowna,B.C. Well, here's to all the fun,travel and excitement and great people I met.

Winnipeg, Mb. I began working for Conklin Shows once at 18 yrs old, in ticket sales. Then at 28, Winnipeg only at RR Ex(Polo Park) the pillows for four years, Kiddieland. My heart set on operating the Merry-go-Round. I believe I am the only woman Metis artist to have done carnival art in the shows. I painted while the show slept. I'll never miss set ups and tear downs in the pouring rain (maybe not). For my grandson - Deion Nelson, he'll be a carney - both his parents are!

I started at the show in 1993 and ended in 2005. I enjoyed many years of fun with not only the people I worked with but with the people I met during those years. I love the fact that everyone that I worked with accepted me as a part of the family including the owner himself. I learned so many new things that no amount of space would do it justice. Most of my experiences was through the show and I am grateful for the fun I was able to achieve through it.
