No law against wild animals
It seems to, that there will be no law against wild animals in Germany. Suggestions that should ban Monkeys, Elephants and other wild animals couldn’t get enough votes.
One more record.
Circus Scandinavia has just made one more record. After a weak start two years ago with only a few guests every day, we have just grown every week. This week we had 34 thousand visitors reading Circus Scandinavia.

One more artists are signed to circus Krones winter program. It is the Italian Crossbow act "The Jasters". The Jasters are at the moment on tour with circus Moira Orfe in Italy and will be a part of the Circus Krone February performance. The Jasters was with circus Arnardo in Norway for the 1999 summer tour.
The American illusionist David Blaine, at the moment locked up in a glass container, has a lot of trouble. He will stay in the container, who is placed over the ground lifted up by a crane for 45 days without food. The persons in London throw eggs and foot on the container and the police decided to give him guarded protection. The problem is that the police will give David the bill for the police work when he leaves the container. David Blaine has an enormous success in the States but in London it doesn’t seem like a personal success.
The German circus Krone winter program is partly been released. There will be premiere on the first program – December 15th. The second program starts January 2nd. And the third March 3rd. until April 4th. On the program will Colonel Joe –the mighty elephant, The clown troupe The Chickys (Should be there last performance ?), Sea lions performed by Duss, Christal Sembach Krone with Liberty horses,Perezvony – air acrobats, Arabeske – Acrobats, Quiros – High wire, Mario Berousek – high speed juggler and Jana Mandana - different animals.

Circus trip to Germany
We are some Danish circus fans, who would like to arrange a trip to one of the big circuses, when they visit Flensborg. Every year there is one of the greater Circuses – Krone, Barum – Busch Roland who normally visit Flensborg in the north Germany.
The big German circuses are known for their animal acts and very nice artists. For those there is to young to have seen wild animals like tigers and lions in a Danish circus would have the opportunity here and for the older generation it would be a chance to see those animals again.
The trip will be arranged on a Saturday
The trip to Germany will go by buss and the cost will be around 350 Danish Crowns. If there are under 20 persons who are interested the trip will be cancelled.
The Circus guests will be picked up with Hovedbanegården (train station) in Copenhagen with storebæltsbroen and in Fredericia.
If you are interested to be a part of this trip please contact
Ledreborg Alle 42
Circus Scandinavia has nothing to do with the arrangement but we think that is a good idea.
Circus Scandinavia wrote a few days ago that the clown troupe "Revilinos" should stay in Circo Americano for a year. That is right but my friend Dario Duranti from Italian Circus friends corrected me. He explains that there is more than one Circus Americano and Revilinos shal be in Circus Americano in Spain and not the one in Italy. I´m sorry for those Italien people who was looking forward to see Revilinos. Now it is the Spanish people which have the pleasure to see those nice clowns.

Circus Arena dromedary
The six dromedaries’ from circus Arena in Denmark, wasn’t allowed into Sweden to join Circus Skratt for the last part of the summer tour. The veterinarian authorities in Sweden said that some tests made on the animals wasen´t good enough. The dromedaries came from Sweden earlier this year to join circus BonBon in Denmark for a 6 week period but they couldn’t return to Sweden. Instead Circus Skratt hired another artist and the animals joined Circus Arena for their last part of the summer tour.

I wrote a few days ago, that Casselys Elephants would be in Arena next year. It is correct that Cassely is signed by Benny Berdino but not to circus Arena. Cassely will perform in Circus Skratt in Sweden and later in Circus BonBon in Denmark. Benny Berdino owns Circus Arena in DK. Circus Skratt in Sweden and that’s the reason for the confusion. The Elephant act in Arena in the 2004 season will be once again Sonny Frankello.

Circus Scandinavia in Benneweis with 45 kids.
Circus Scandinavia invited yesterday 45 kids in Circus Benneweis – Copenhagen. They were all very happy and ready to be entertained by Fumagalli and all the other artists in Benneweis. All the kids agreed in, that Fumagalli was the best and he was out after the performance to say hello to them all. He was there for about 15 minnutes because he had to write his autograph on the back of all the tickets and to do a lot of photo sessions with the kids.

Dannebrog Camels out of the grass
The local government in Copenhagen will not allow circus Dannebrogs camels on the lawn in the park. The government says that the camels destroyed a part of the grass last year when Dannebrog was in Copenhagen. Circus Dannebrog has offered to pay for the grass but has been refused.
