Vancouver 2010 Opening Ceremony Ticket Giveaway

Comments 250 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Yesterday I launched a contest with BC Hydro Power Smart to win tickets to a men’s ice hockey semi-final game.

Turns out they have much more to give Miss604.com readers as I’ve been offered tickets to tonight’s opening ceremonies. I only have two hours to run this contest so that the winner can pick up tickets in time so here we go.

Ontario House Pavilion

Contest:
Leave a comment between 1:20pm and 3:00pm 2:45pm on this post about the Olympics (anything you like). I will draw a winner randomly at 3:15pm 2:50pm. The winner will be notified by email and must be able to confirm within 30 minutes that they can pick up their ticket tonight.

Rules and regulations:
Winner must be able to pick up their ticket for the opening ceremony (tonight at 6:00pm at BC Place) from the BC Hydro Power Smart Village at 333 Dunsmuir Street. The winner will need to bring a copy of the email I will send saying they have won and will need government ID to prove their identity.

That’s it, good luck everyone and Go Canada!

Update: This contest will need to close at 2:45 so that the winner can get their tickets and get into the ceremony on time.
Update: I just drew the winner and it’s Katy, congratulations!
Update: Katy has claimed the prize and is on her way to the Power Smart Village.

    As a Kiwi who has been living in Vancouver for over a year, I am so excited for all the amazing events happening here in the next few weeks. Have seen the torch relay last night and today and can’t wait to get amongst it all. The Olympics will probably never come to New Zealand so this is an incredible opportunity for me!

  8. ann gibbonFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:20pm PST

    I am ecstatic about the Olympics, which will truly define Vancouver and Canada to the rest of the world. Ann Gibbon

    So sad to hear about the luge accident today. Thoughts and prayers for Nodar’s family and friends, and all the athletes who have to race on the same track. May there be no more accidents.

    Lucky comment number one! I hope that, from all of the mixed emotions pulsing through the city right now emerges a fantastic celebration of the best the world has to offer. This is the time to put aside our differences and embrace our guests! Go World! (I’ve adopted Visa’s slogan)

  19. Krista LambertFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:21pm PST

    I am so excited to be glued to my TV during all the events! And I can’t wait to head downtown and take part in all the festivities! πŸ™‚ GO FOR GOLD, CANADA!

  33. Claudia LaroyeFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:22pm PST

    Our family was there in 2003 at GM Place when Vancouver was awarded the Games. Our kids were 3 and 5 then, and we thought it would be soooo long until 2010.
    Here we are. Tonight’s the night and it will be spectacular.
    I’d like to win these tickets on behalf of my parents-in-law, who were unable to obtain tickets for the Games and sadly lament that fact.
    Thanks and cheers.

  34. Nicole RFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:22pm PST

    I hope that the tragic incident on the luge course isn’t a sign of things to come. The Olympics are supposed to be about happy events and triumphs.

    Crossing my fingers for our Canadian figure skaters! Go Patrick Chan πŸ™‚

  51. Cathy BrowneFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:24pm PST

    It would be a distinct thrill to actually be a part of the Opening Ceremonies:-) Fingers crossed…

  52. Michelle LazarFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:24pm PST

    So proud to be Canadian right now, and loving some of the lyrics from Classified’s Oh Canada:

    From the land of the lost
    Trans-Canada crossed
    patriotic and a honor
    with a hand on my heart

    From the Greatest of Lakes
    to the greenest of greens
    to the Rockiest mountains
    and everything in between

    I know where I’m from and I told ya before
    North of America hard to ignore
    every time I go away i tell em for sure
    I’m from Canada o-o-o Canada

  53. KathrynFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:25pm PST

  58. TavaFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:25pm PST

    thinks Kumaritashvili’s family should light the torch

  59. John NilesFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:26pm PST

    Luge tragedy today will require a solemn addition to the opening ceremony

  60. SandiFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:26pm PST

    The only thing better than watching the opening ceremony on tv would to be there live! I’d love to win!

  61. RyanFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:26pm PST

    Let the Games Begin!!

  70. Darryl WrightFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:27pm PST

    It seemed so tragic as to render the Olympics pointless and unredeemable to me. And then I remembered Nodar Kumaritashvili died at what he would probably consider to be the most important and most significant moment of his life doing what he loves to do.

  71. KarinFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:27pm PST

    I’ll drop everything to be there!

  72. KatyFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:27pm PST

  92. Madu Manuel LopezFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:32pm PST

    This post goes to the family, friends and loved ones of the fallen luge racer. As an athlete who practises a dangerous sport; I truly believe that he died doing what he loved and proudly representing his country. He was probably so happy and having the greatest experience of his life. RIP

  93. MatsudaFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:32pm PST

    Let the games begin! My heart is with Georgia right now…

  119. Jim DeLaHuntFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:41pm PST

    I agree, there should be some respects paid to the late Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili, who was killed in a training accident in Whistler today. So sad.

    And in the meantime, I plan to cheer both the Olympics sport, fun, and creativity, *and* the protester’s reminders of all that is wrong with the corporate marketing frenzy and the warped priorities that got us here.

  120. BapiFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:41pm PST

    Here’s to hoping I win. Thanks in advance πŸ™‚

  121. janFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:41pm PST

    The Olympics has created an amazing sense of community here! I’m in awe of how we are all drawn to the torch, wanting to touch it, get a glimpse of the spirit and what it represents: Hope, Pride and World Peace! I would be so honoured to experience the opening ceremonies!

  167. Barb WhiteFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:58pm PST

    I have been wowed by Vancouver hosting the games and so proud to be a Vancouverite at this time. I haven’t any tickets to an event and planned to cheer in my living room. Thanks to BC hydro for this wonderful unexpected opportunity of a lifetime for someone. If I am chosen, I’ll be out my house in 5 mins to collect the tickets and would be ever grateful to have the chance to actually be there in person. I am saddened by the news about the Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili. My prayers go out to his family, friends and teammates.

  168. LauraFriday, February 12th, 2010 — 1:59pm PST

    I can’t believe how different the atmosphere is in this town even compared to 3 days ago before the torch entered into GVRD. Everyone is excited and I hope the whole world will see how great this city and the whole country is.

    One of the greatest sporting events is at our doorsteps, it’s time for us to make the most of it, go out there and experience all the Olympics has to offer.
