meet Jim Neff from Buffalo (a newspaper article)
« on: January 25, 2012, 09:55:28 PM »

While searching for something else I ran across this article about Jim Neff.  I was fortunate enough to spend some time with him at the IJA festival in Lexington (was that three or four years ago?).  You will love the pictures.....

I forgot, which of your tops is that one, Alan? What is the relation between Jim and Chris? Are Acrobats edible?

Great find Mike!

The juggling club had to get a permit to meet at a park?   >:(

Good find & what a good photo.  I really like the fat spiral paint job.

It looks like the article was from 2010 else it could be the first 2012 nominee.

We've met Jim before.  He's a master of the steel whip top as is shown in the link below.

Also in that link is another photo of Jims' big top (the Cyclone).  It's a picture after I got my hands on it at the Rochester MN IJA festival last year.  My shame will haunt me forever.  I can only hope that repairs have been done and it's okay.

Hey Jack, yea, we know of the 'other' Neff.  I met him in Rochester at a big juggling festival.  Unfortunately my meeting with him did not end well. Here's a thread about our meeting.

I still don't know if the repairs have been done.
