Dear CityCaucus.com readers,
The city that we love and that we make our home in is about to undergo an amazing experience. We don't think any of us really know what the next several weeks will be like for Metro Vancouver, but without question it will be exciting, exhilarating and full of surprises. Our city will be changed by the Games.
We've been writing and working hard over the last 14 months since we launched CityCaucus.com. It, too, has had more than a few unexpected moments. On a lark we decided to create a page that listed free places to visit during the 2010 Games about six weeks ago. It has since become our obsession.
We are seeing web traffic that has surpassed our wildest expectations, and even caused our site to crash a couple of times (we think we've fixed that problem). We think that 50,000 page views per day is not unachievable in the weeks to follow. Therefore, we think it's time to shift gears for a bit, and focus 100% of our energy on Vancouver's Games.
So, from today forward until the flame goes out at the end of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, we will be devoting ourselves solely to the subject of the 2010 Games, and in particular free events.
We hope that our regular readers won't mind the diversion for the next month. We think that it's going to be a lot of fun, and we hope that you will also share the spirit of the Games as it descends over our city.
Thanks for joining us for the ride.
