1971 Stampede Salute to Sports

In 1971 the Calgary Stampede had the Salute to Sports at the Flare Square. In the Corral 1/2 the ice was used for ice and the other 1/2 volleyball courts. The former Canadian and World Champion Petra Burka was making appearances and the kids could skate with her. I was taking skating lessons at the time and Petra Burka taught me a jump called a salchow. I remember going back to skating and showing the other kids my salchow!!
