I hope everyone around here remember to set their clocks back so they’re not unnecessarily early to any events this morning. Here’s a quick news roundup.
Ticket prices have been announced for the Vancouver 2010 games. It appears as though they start at around $25 and go up to $1,100 for the opening ceremonies. There’s some deal about a “lottery” system in place, and “there will be 50,000 free tickets and half the tickets will be $100 or less… About 100,000 tickets will be available for $25 or less. [CTV]”
…approximately 1.6 million tickets will be available for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games with 100,000 tickets priced at $25. Half of all tickets are priced at $100 or less and opening and closing ceremonies tickets, ranging from $175 to $1,100. [Canada.com]
There’s the issue of ticket brokers claiming they have tickets – where will you be able to get tickets and when. Don’t believe everything you hear and don’t pounce on anything posted on Craigslist right now. They officially go on sale in October 2008 so don’t think you’ve got a deal or are beating the box office. It ain’t happening.
That’s it for this morning, I’m off to the suburbs and am hoping to get my passport signed so I can get that dropped off this week. Since I used my married name I can’t do a “super easy fast track renewal” so it’s a bit of a pain. Will post more about this when I’m waiting in line for 4 hours.
