Olympic Post a Day #15: Officially a Blue Jacket

25 02 2010

Yesterday I headed to the volunteer accreditation center, and picked up my blue jacket, outfit, and also some swag it came with. I’m technical support for the Paralympics in Vancouver, and quite excited that I have an opportunity to help make the Games happen.

Volunteer Uniform

• Blue Jacket
• Blue Vest
• 2 x Blue shirts
• Waterproof pants
• Blue Toque
• Stainless steel coffee mug
• Commemorative coin
• Paralympics adaptation kit
• Accreditation badge

My badge is pretty sweet, it’s all access to everywhere – all events, athlete’s village, media centers, etc. This likely as I’m technical support, and who knows where I’ll end up fixing something.

Also in the bag of goodies (it’s gotta be near $500 worth of clothing and gear) was a pass to get a free journal. You have to pay shipping still ($12), but you can customize the cover, including the picture and title.
