Judy Sladky also is and has always been the Alice Snuffleupagus character on Sesame Street.
It's no wonder that she is fond of Snoopy. She played Snoopy in numerous shows, including the Snoopy Musical on ice. For non Snoopy fans, Snoopy has always skated, played hockey, driven the zamboni and was also Peppermint Patty's skating coach.

Thank you for posting the link, Sylvia.
I take it Nancy K was a no show (understandably)?

Does anyone have video of the Tai/Randy and JoJo/Ken Shelley segment? I saw the still photos but would love the see the real thing.

Cool story from the captions re. Dick Button, John Misha Petkevich, and Paul Wylie:
As the group was breaking up, I noticed Paul was holding a trophy. The light bulb went on when I saw him talking to Misha about it.
Dick Button finished second at his first Worlds in Stockholm in 1947, but he was befriended by Ulrich Salchow (at that time president of the ISU), who did not want him to go home without a trophy. So Salchow gave him one of his own trophies. Dick gave the trophy to Misha in 1972, and now it appears Paul is its new owner. So, here's a shot of the three Harvard guys together with Ulrich Salchow's trophy.
I was aware of the story; but, didn't know that Paul was the current owner.
Thanks to "frogsonice" for the photographs and report, also.
