Olympics visitors wanted
January 5, 2010

As Vancouver, British Columbia, prepares for epic crowds and worldwide attention when the 2010 Winter Olympics begin next month, we want to hear from Issaquah residents with plans to attend the games.With the Olympics less than 200 miles from Issaquah, we imagine some locals will run for the border during the two-weeklong global gathering.
Local folks with Vancouver travel plans: Talk to us. Send us a tweet @issaquahpress or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know when you plan to attend the games, and whether you’ll be able to send photos from sports venues, medal ceremonies and other memorable moments.
Tell us what you’re looking forward to about the Olympics and, as the games unfold, send us your observations from British Columbia. Share your experiences and photos from Vancouver during the Feb. 12-28 games.
For attendees with plans to tweet through the Olympics, let us know. If we hear from enough local tweeps with an Olympics plan, we’ll put together a Twitter list with up-to-the-minute updates from local folks attending the games.
