Flint Rasmussen was the clown. Fun to see him again he used to be at the Rapid City Stock show Rodeo until he signed with the PBR.
There were several bull riders from the PRR there too.
I haven't been watching the PBR, I need to catch up before the finals this fall. Back to the rodeo, boy they didn't waste anytime it just went from one event to the next.
This was the wild pony event. Lots of girls tried it. You had to keep ahold of the pony til one of the riders got on then they had to ride it.
Needless to say no one did it.
After the rodeo we found some quilts to look at. They were hung up very high!
After the quilts we waited in line for a glass of wine:) Did I mention we waited..........waited ..........and waited oh well it was worth it.
This was our morning tour. The Calgary Tower. It was built in 1967 &68 at a cost of 3.5 million. The tower measures 626 feet to the top of the antenna. You can take the elevator to the top or climb 802 stairs. Some of us begged to take the stairs, but I don't think the rest would wait 3 days for us to make it to the top!! (really, no one begged I just made that up LOL)
View from the top.
All decked out in western decor.
Some of the past Stampede posters.
When we walked out there was alittle horse and buggy parade going by.
Watch your step!
Here I am standing on the glass floor!
We had a quick supper and back to the room to relax..........pray for rain JMF
