The 116th edition Ringling Blue Unit Alley.

Among the stars we see Tuba Heatherton, Sam Drummond, Chris Hudert, Tammy and Tom Parrish, Tricia Manuel (now Bothun), "Mr. Bill" Machtel, David Kiser, Jimmy Graham, Huel Speight and Jon Weiss.

My apologies to anyone that I didn't identfy. Can anyone out there fill in the blanks?

Ok- I'm working without notes here so bear with me!! lol
Next to Tricia is (I believe) Chris Allison & next to him is Dennis (whose last name completely escapes me)..
I'll go dig out some programs later & fill in the rest :)

Mndarrin,

You see the clown character that would become "Pricilla Mooseburger", back then she was still Tricia Manuel, now Bothun.

That's Matthew Wright (now in Chapel Hill and a great friend) behind Sam Drummond and just to the right of Tuba.

Want to reach Sam Drummond. He's an old college friend from Columbia, SC. The last time I saw him was in Portland ME. and I actually did a matinee when a clown was down...Can anyone help me reach him...

Mike Bringold is my dad. I'm his son Nick, I can totally get you links to his info. I'm trying to reunite him with people he clowned with and it would be awesome to get assistance. My email is stlouis_what@hotmail.com
