Thanks again to Tony, Jo-Anne, Robyn, Carol and Stephanie!  It’s so great to have 5 contest winners that all sent photos of themselves (no cactus in sight!).  I will be doing another photo contest soon as I have a few Royal Bank pins now to give away.  I’ll try to get that up within the next week, but if you’re looking for a contest, don’t forget about my ‘100 days of 2010vanfan’ contest!  The prize is a Vancouver 2010 Pin Album which includes a pin that you can only get with the pin album!!

Other News:

The IOC has approved Golf and Rugby 7’s to be played in the Summer Olympics starting in London 2012!  Should be interesting.  Golf was slightly more controversial with the votes 63 for – 27 against while rugby was more unanimous at 81 for – 8 against. Both Men’s and Women’s events will be held in the sports.  Baseball, softball, squash, roller sports and karate also made a bid to make it into the Summer Olympics but missed out this time around.

Well… I’d like to have more news, but it was a pretty quite day in Vancouver 2010 land.  I will let you know though that we have completely sold out of the hand-knit Olympic sweaters at the Olympic Superstore.  We should be getting the machine knit ones in soon though!

Thanks for reading, and sorry for the delay.  I’m not sure what went on last night but I couldn’t get onto WordPress to post.  But I’m not too, too late!  Regards! Andrea – 2010vanfan.
