Just going to quote the book. I'm just going to write was planned because i'm not sure which venues existed and which ones were games dependent. Archery was planned at Seneca College, King City. 50k

My letters,official reports, maps of villages and sports rules of Mexico 1968

They discussed gold coast But it was not part of the cluster plan it was all Brisbane not spread out to Gold coast

Oh really? Why if i can ask? Favorited Olympics or cause its a winning bid? Or home city?

Because one of my missing French Bid book ! France is my birth's country and Albertville is 90 minutres drive from home ;-)

Wow the book thing is actually a pretty good read. Talks about finances history of the games and manchesters sport history. Also talks why Manchester discusses other candidates and says Melbourne recently held games belgrade in chaos and wait for it too soon for Toronto and Atlanta 2 summer and 2 winter games in recent years (fail haha) it talks highly about Athens.

Mentions if they lose not til 08 2000 they

thought was Beijing dunno 2004 and then 2008

there's plus 1908 1948 so 2008. Close I mean

2012. Talks about how they built the first computer and fastest growif international airport in Europe.

When I say talks about if they lose I mean if Manchester loses not if athens loses.

Who cares about Banff? They didn't then and certainly don't now. Calgary was always the bid to go with, not the mountain resort of Banff with Calgary playing a secondary role.

Haha i'm not saying they deserve it just saying wish that horrible bid book would go off ebay
