By the way, if somebody from Vancouver could tell me where I can find a good beach (for the Triathlon and the Open water swiming) and a big lake (at least 2000m long) (for Rowing and Canoe/Kayak) near Vancouver, I would apreciate it.

Also, if anyone could help me with the logo and the PDF, it would be great.

Well, I have two options for B.C. place. The first would to use it primarly as a convention hall/concert hall, with temporary seatings for some sportings events (stuff like Basketball, not Football...). Option two would be to destroy B.C. Place after the games and replace it with a convention center, an hotel or something of the sort.

Also, someting I did not mention, but the Beach Volleyball build with the Olympic Stadium have an interesting feature: it would have a retractable roof, so in the summer it can be used as an outdoor area for sports such as Tennis or Beach Volleyball, while it could also be used year long as an indoor arena.

It is also quite usefull if it starts raining.

The Olympic Stadium itself, on the other hand, would not be roofed.
