Location 7 - the winners

This leg of the race has been won by a new entrant, Anonymous Neil, who correctly identified Kitzilano Pool in Vancouver from my photograph. Peter von Amsterdam sent in the picture below from his helicopter vantage point. It shows more clearly why it is one of my favourite pools, the 137.5m length creates difficulty calculating how far you've swum, but is quite unique, (they do have markers every 25m on the floor of the pool to let you know where you're at).
Geoff d'Vancouver also correctly identified the other reason for its popularity - THE MEN - abounding in and around it. In my photo, which was a merging of a few individual photos, you get to see one cute man twice - from the front and back as he walked from one end to the other during my photographing. (or was that the reason for the multiple photos..? hmm)
To maintain diplomatic ties, Geoff d'Vancouver gets the prize for, um living in Vancouver, and Peter von Amsterdam the research grant.

Sponsors for actual real prizes for superchilled race around the world are more than welcomed. Location 8: coming soon...

Persons who have played in the last seven races around the world, here on Superchilled, including our superb host Trevor, get a drink [beer, wine, water] when they show up in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

I know we Dutch have a name in the world, but this time we're not going Dutch.

So that will be Geoff & Terry, Craig, Andrew, Monty, Trevor & the Frenchman and since anonymous is anonymous I don't count him/her/it.

Just let me know when you come to Venice of the North.

Thanks Peter von Amsterdam, now if only we can get the sponsorship of the flights there... WIll KLM come to the party? Or my favourite Singapore Air? (I'm prepared to changed my prefered airline for a fee...)

Sorry Craig, but I did enjoy your linked theme there.

I think I feel a new location coming on...

Since KLM is taken over by Air France, our "pride and joy" is no more.

You don't have to hop on a plane immediatly, you can start saving first and come next year.

Gives me time to save some for your binge drinking ;-)
