Pop Goes The Stadium

BC Place Stadium - Post-Deflation
BC Place Stadium - Post-Deflation
Some of you probably already read About this - but the Teflon roof of BC Place Stadium in Vancouver tore and the whole thing deflated after all the wind storms in BC lately... Described by one radio DJ: "The suoffle that graces the Vancouver Skyline - BC Place has fallen - someone must have really bumped the oven!"

The initial report kinda took me completely by surprise, with all the wind we have been getting lately - the latest storm was minor by comparison - so we werenīt really expecting anything significant to come of it damage-wise - I guess this was a īlast strawī kinda thing.

Anyway a Duke of Edinburghīs Award buddy of mine in Vancouver sent this photo along and Iīve included a file photo so you can see the difference. Itīs pretty amazing and very fortunate no-one was hurt!
