Vancouver 2010 pins

NOC pin update: Received a letter in mail today from Frankfurt (I know the German NOC is located there) so I will find out if/what I received something from them and will post on here. Very cool, and if I did receive something from them, I will send a reply to them with Tausend Dank! or Mit tiefer Dankbarkeit!

I have to say I am quite disappointed with Sportsnet. our university International Studies Club is holding a fundraiser and I am contacting corporations for pins. This is their response. Please note, I am not asking for the pins for my personal collection

Hello Shawn,

Thanks for your recent email. As you have already requested for and received one from us in June, we are not able to provide you with another one due to a limited supply. Our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause. We ask that you do not email us again with this request.

Here is what I wrote in my request:

Hello! My name is Shawn . I was wondering if Sportsnet has any pins

promoting the Vancouver/Whistler 2010 Olympics. I am a member of the

University of Regina's International Studies Club, and we are looking

for Olympic pins as part of a fundraiser we will be running. I am aware

of the official VANOC pins that are available at HBC stores. If there

are any available, how can I obtain them? I'm interested in obtaining

two: one for myself and the other for trading. Thanks.

and my response to his e-mail:

Dear Mr. LaChapelle,

First of all I want to acknowledge that corporations such as Sportsnet have limited amounts of pins.

However, I would like to point out I am not asking for pins for myself, but rather the International Studies Club at our university as part of a fundraising raffle.

please be assured I will not be requesting anymore 2010 Olympic sponsor pins from Sportsnet

I love the Italians! About a month ago I sent them a letter asking for some pins and this week they sent me three different Italian NOC Pins, an Atlanta 1996 Italian Team Pin and a Torino 2006 Italian Team Pin. Also received four pins (two of each different type) from the BC Government in response to a request sent in March. B)

Herllo German Canadian Pinhead,

Could you please PM me the email address you used for the BC Government pins and Italian NOC Pins?

Thanks so much,

crazywoody

That's unfortunate. But it looks like your request did ask for pins for the fundraiser, and then one for yourself and one for trading. (Or was that a combo of both of your requests?)

Yes, sadly I mistakenly worded the request like that. However, when I sent the same to other sponsors , they did not reply in the same manner, and hopefully will be getting some, as it was more positive from them. I was hoping to get 2 for the second request. (Only got 1 the first time) Plan was to possibly get whoever wins to start pin trading themselves

I now ask if they were with EUR but said me only like $CAD.

I don't understand why they are being difficult about it. If I deposit a US $ cheque into my bank, they will accept it and then adjust my account balance once they make the conversion. Not sure how I can help you.

I walked in front of CTV offices yesterday and saw the queue and the poster announcing the pin's distribution.

Question to our Vancouver's members : how often do they organize that ? And what those pins so special ?

Is there possible to see them somewhere ?

They don't have a public schedule; they announce the next date during the news hour. You can see some of the pins on ebay or on their website (only pictures). The pins are very nice, some of the nicer ones issued for these Olympics.
