I suppose our first sponsor was (somewhat unknowingly) the City of Knoxville,
who made the Candy Factory building space available to local non-profit groups
free of charge. We met there for about two and a half years, before having to
move when the Candy Factory was sold for private development.
The current sponsor of our meeting space is the
YMCA of East Tennessee. We are very
grateful to them for allowing us to use their space two or three times each month.
(If you come juggle with us, let the YMCA know you appreciate their hospitality.)
An additional business I would like to mention is Gballz. Mr. Gregory Poche (owner
of Gballz) sent three samples of his products so that folks at the Knoxville Juggling
Club could try them out and see what they liked. As there are very few prop vendors
around the East Tennessee area, I sincerely appreciate Mr. Poche providing his time
and resources to provide us this benefit. Check out Gballz
