A vist from Don Olney!
« on: September 03, 2014, 08:12:28 PM »

I had the pleasure of meeting Don Olney on Sunday, at the Rochester Juggling Club's weekly meeting.  We have several members who are beginner top spinners, and I thought it would be fun to ask Don to visit.

We were thrilled when he showed up!  Don is a warm and personable gentleman, and we all had fun talking spin tops.  We even got an invitation to visit his shop some day soon!

Thanks for the visit, Don!  Now to see whether or not my very limited computer skills will allow me to post a photo we took.  If the picture should miraculously appear, we are, from left to right, my friend and fellow top enthusiast David Everly, Don Olney, and myself....

Ha!  Not only did I get the picture to post, I got it twice!  If any knows how to ditch one of them, we only need the one....

Yippee!!!  I am so glad to hear that you have made contact with The Toycrafter.  He needs to be seen more in your area and I think your club members are just the ones to make some great connections.

He is a special guy and deserves to see all the top action you have going there.

I am thrilled to hear about this.  Can you tell?  The picture is an extra treat!
