Building Momentum

October 15, 2009

The announcements and unveilings have been picking up steam a little bit over the past week, as we get closer to the 100 Days To Go Mark. Ticket Sales, Volunteer Uniforms and Transportation Plans have all come out in the last 48 hours. The one I wanted to talk about briefly however is the ‘Live City’ events announced by the City of Vancouver.

The city announced that there will be two ‘live’ celebration sites during the games: one in Yaletown at David Lam Park, and one downtown at the corner of Georgia and Beatty……..Of course, the corner of Georgia and Beatty is about 50 meters from our hotel!

Included at the downtown site will be a 40’ TV screen, booze, and the Canada Pavilion. Its gonna be very sweet to have that so close to our hotel…..just so long as we can get at least the semblance of some sleep.

Up Next
Coming up next are three of the big ones:
Today: Unveiling of the Medals
Week from Today: Lighting of the Flame
Sometime in the next week or so: Seat Assignment
