Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics - Event Schedule

A lot of folks have asked what events Sarah and I will be attending. Well, without further ado, here it is:

Saturday February 13
Just Michal is attending men's Luge (17:00-20:35)

Sunday February 14
We had tickets for Men's Biathlon 10km sprint (11:15 -12:25) but we sold these because we didn't want to pay to spend the night on the 13th and this event is in Whistler, which given the late event on the 13th, would be difficult to make work in our schedule.

Monday February 15
Sarah's not going to this one as it is a work day, but Michal and Bill will be there to see the Canadian women's hockey team face off against the Swiss (14:30-17:00).

Wednesday February 17
Michal and Travis will be going up to see women's curling (9:00-12:00) with China versus Great Britain, Germany versus the United States, Switzerland versus Sweden, and Japan versus Canada -- all simultaneously (but on different sheets).

Friday February 19
We have a full day of events here, starting with the men's individual large hill ski jumping (10:00-11:05) followed by women's and men's skeleton (15:45-20:30).

Saturday February 20
Men's Pursuit (15km classic + 15km free) cross country skiing (13:30-15:00)

Tuesday February 23
I'm looking for someone to go with me to attend women's ski cross freestyle skiing (10:30-11:30 and 13:00-14:15) at Cypress Mountain -- this is the venue which has been closed since mid-January to try and preserve snow for the Olympics.

Thursday February 25
Nordic combined consisting of the men's individual large hill ski jumping (10:00-10:50) and men's individual 10km cross country skiing (13:00-13:35). Again, I'm still looking for someone to come with me as Sarah's unable to attend this event.

Saturday February 27
We have a conflict on this date, and we're going to try and sell the women's 30km mass start classic (11:45-13:45) tickets -- although if you want to buy these tickets from us and carpool up to Whistler, we'd love to do so. We're actually attending the Men's four-man bobsleigh (13:00-15:25) event.

All times are pacific times and are event times, not necessarily broadcast times. A couple of the events are subject to change if we manage to trade with other ticket holders for events which work better with our schedule. We'll update the blog and this post accordingly. I made a shared Google Calendar of the entire Olympic schedule which can be accessed here or you can view the PDF version from the official Vancouver 2010 website.
