IOC president Jacques Rogge will be in Whistler on Feb. 11 for a 4:45 p.m. news conference at the Whistler Westin before appearing at the Whistler Sliding Centre for a 6 p.m. photo opportunity with an Omega Countdown Clock.
On Feb. 12, he will observe the unveiling of the Bombardier-designed Olympic torch and Hbc-designed torchbearers' uniforms in Whistler Village Square at 8 a.m.
Rogge will formally invite the ice and snow athletes of the world to gather in Vancouver at a 5 p.m. event at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
Anti-Olympics protesters from the Olympics Resistance Network gather at 6 p.m. in Victory Square for a torchlight march around downtown. That's just two blocks from the Queen Elizabeth Theatre where Sarah McLachlan plays the one-year countdown concert at 7:30 p.m.
Doesn't look like anything is planned for the Vancouver Art Gallery's Omega Countdown Clock where the three-year countdown ceremony and unveiling was sparsely attended and went awry with about 100 noisy protesters.
