I use to work the Mermaid Fesatival on the independent till a certain show( not Poor Jacks!) took it fence to fence. The worst part was I was negoiating to buy a new bunk house from the show owners daughter. Needless to say the deal did not go through!

You have to remember you are small potatoes with a couple of food joints. But, all you have to do is take on the obligations of owning a show to compete and you too could possibly have the ex.

The daughter was a factory sales agent.
Yea, try to profit from sale of a bunk house all the while knowing you can also cut my throat by getting me kicked out of a spot. If that is what it takes to own a show, No thanks , I sleep well at night and I do not want to answer to my maker for actions like that.

This is kind of funny, you told me they were in town last year, I coudn't find them, than this year I saw some rides coming into town so I looked for them again, almost gave up, thought I would try one more spot and wha-la.

Midwest Midways was the highlite of the weekend. Wind Shear was a real neat ride, who makes it? It looks heavy for a one trailer ride. They brought about twenty games. They must not be in a big hurry to tear down because they waited until Sunday morning to start taking most of the rides down.
