The folks over at Pantagraph have posted this article about last weeks AYCO festival.
For those that could not attend, we have collected a number of the handouts from the festival.
On a personal note, I would like to take a moment to thank all of those that made this event happen, and especially all of the Illinois State University Gamma Phi Circus kids that worked so hard to pull this off. This group of kids, led by Director Al Light and Super Senior Sara Smith, went way above and beyond to make this event work. They worked from early morning to very late at night every day of this event without a break. If you ever wonder what youth circus is all about, you have to look no further than these kids to find the dedication, passion, hard work and ethics that is youth circus. I am honored to have had the privilege of spending so much time with these kids, and I am even more honored to have them as friends.
