  1. Does anyone have the Paris 2012 Bid Books? I'd love to take a look at those online if anyone has a link to them! Please and thank you! Or was that link already in here? Thanks, Kyle
  2. Oh dear bureaucracy is never any fun! Here's hoping the red tape is cleared up because three years isn't that far off really. Here's hoping they can get their heads out of their behinds and get it together. Admittedly of course I won't be following world cup as much because Canada has only ever qualified for the World Cup once (in 1986 and scored ZERO goals ) but I hope its good because there is much riding on the line for Brazil with the Olympics only two years later!
  3. Oops... That was supposed to be a Private Message for you Danny, sorry! I don't think I can even send you a message privately though haha.
  4. is there rampant corruption going on within the faction of the federal government that is organizign it? I just had a question, I know the supreme court legalized Civil Unions to some extent, but does that mean that same-sex couples can get Civil Unions through the government now? Or is that still in the process of being set up. I know that same-sex couples are now entitled to the same rights as married couples in the ruling. I'm just wondering if couples and go to the government office and get a certificate now just like married couples do for a marriage license. Any help would be greatly provided. Kyle
  5. Yes I've heard that the World Cup 2014 preparations have been a big mess unfortunately. Why the lack of organization and missteps? I haven't really kept up with it so I'm not too sure... Of course with 5 years left till the games there's still so much work to be done but here's hoping the lessosn will be learned especeially with the Athens 2004 Debacle! I'm sure Rio will put on a fine games though and that all cariocas will be celebrating! It will be amazing!
  6. I must say that I initially had my skepticism with the bid and Rio winning. But I must say that Rio is doing a fabulous job in their preparation and their plans. It's interesting to compare the winning designs with the originals in the bid book and I must say that these are much more exciting and vibrant! I would love to be able to come to Rio for 2016 but alas my budget won't allow me to come so I'll be watching the awesome images from my TV at home. These games are going to be vibrant and historic!
  7. Apparently I can justify it... I bought it anyways :S lol. Thanks so much for the link!
  8. Thanks so much for the Sochi and London links! I remember the section on Venues being so much more detailed then what's on the link... With artist depictions, etc. Does anyone remember what I'm talking about?? I remember reading through the Bid Book vividly and seeing those images and the details, maps, etc. If anyone had a link to that I'd be HUGELY appreciative...
  9. Unfortunately I'm not sure I can justify 95.00 GBP on an item, I was looking for the PDF form of the document if anyone has it?
  10. Does someone have links to the London 2012 and Sochi 2014 Bid Books please and thank you? Kyle
  11. Hi Everyone, I know where it's possible to find a PDF copy of the bid book but does anyone know where I can find a physical copy of the Bid Book/CD? I know they used to be on Ebay but I can't find one at the moment it seems. I'm also looking for video of the Bid Presentation that was made on July 2, 2003 to the delegates in Prague? Does anyone have a copy of the entire presentation? I've been trying to find something and can't seem to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
