94 days to go – My Vancouver 2010 Venue map is public!!

November 9, 2009

Thank you so much to Kate T for sending me the instructions on how to make the map public and to kk+ for sending me the file back (nearly lost the work I’d done a few weeks ago!).  Anyhow, click on the link  * Vancouver 2010 Venue Map on the right sidebar under “Blogroll” to access the map anytime!  Or you can add it to your maps in Google Maps!

094 - Venue map

A portion of my Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Venue Map!!


This map is a work in progress.  I will be trying to update it regularly as more venues are announced!  So if you don’t see something you’re looking for, or you hear about something I haven’t posted yet please comment or email me at and I will do my best to add it in!  I really hope everyone finds this useful and interesting.  I’m pretty happy with it so far but am looking forward to improving it and hearing from you!

And finally… the photo we’ve all been waiting for… the Mascot Birthday Pin and possibly your prize if you leave me a comment answering this question:

Question: What word is Mukmuk’s name derived from and what was the original language?  I will put your name into the draw a second time if you can tell me what sports equipment is in Mukmuk’s burrow in his intro video on the Vancouver 2010 website!

Miga and Quatchi with their birthday cake - the Mascots are two years old!!


Oh!  And of course, birthday’s need parties and we are planning on having a birthday party for the Mascots at the Olympic Superstore on Saturday, November 28th!  So far I can only confirm that the Mascots will be attending their birthday party but we are working on getting some other activities going as well!  So hopefully I’ll see you around that day!

    Muk Muk name is derived from a Chinook word meaning food.
    Keep up the great work!

    Mukmuk’s name comes from the Squamish word for food (‘muckamuck’) because he loves to eat.

    Inside his burrow is both a snowboard and a hockey stick and sweater, like any good Canadian.

    Where can I get the 2nd Birthday Pin? The theme for my son’s 2nd birthday is the Winter Olympics in Cananda (since I was born there). The Pin on your page would be a perfect giveaway….Can you please let me know where I can order some?

    You’re missing the official art installation in our Main floor event and coworking space, which the Olympics has dubbed “BOB’s Gallery”. It’s free and open to the public every day for over a month. The artist is Trimpin.–sheng-high_131960nR.html

    163 East Pender, Main floor

    Good work!
