206 Days to go – CTV Olympic Pins

July 20, 2009

Ok, so I just found this and am irked that I’ve already missed the first two pins! I’m going to have to find someone to trade for them. Here is why I’m irked.

Apparently CTV British Columbia is putting out a set of 2010 Olympic Limited Edition Pins! I have missed the “One year to go” pin and the “Speed skating” pin. However it looks like Bobsleigh is out now??? It says to watch CTV news at 6pm.

Ahh… just found more info. If you live in Vancouver it looks like you have to head to the studio when they announce the next pins are available and stand in line to get yours. However… if you live in BC but outside of the Lower Mainland you can get one mailed to you. Here are the directions:


How to get a CTV PIN if you live outside Metro Vancouver

Updated: Fri Feb. 13 2009 15:49:42

var byString = “”; var sourceString = “”; if ((sourceString != “”) && (byString != “”)) { document.write(byString + “, “); } else { document.write(byString); }

If you are interested in acquiring a CTV 2010 Pin but do not live in the Metro Vancouver area please send a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

CTV 2010 Pin Request

300-750 Burrard Street,

Vancouver, BC V6Z 1X5


Only addresses outside of Metro Vancouver and within B.C. are eligible for this offer. If you live within Metro Vancouver be sure to continue to watch CTV News for more updates on how and where you can pick up your free CTV 2010 Pin.

We will send one pin per household, while quantities last.

Unfortunately at this time, the eight limited edition CTV British Columbia 2010 Pins are only available to residents of B.C.”


I am a pinaholic (you may already be noticing that), so I imagine I’ll be standing in some line-ups but hopefully a few of you in the rest of BC will have some luck. For those not in BC, I will keep my eyes and ears open for pins that you too can obtain for free!

      Hi Larry,
      Sorry, it sounds like you’re looking for CTV pins. I’m afraid you have to contact CTV directly. Sorry again.
