Racing & Open Houses

This weekend my sweetie and I took part in the Bell City Chase. It is called an urban adventure and is set up similar to The Amazing Race. We had to find different chase points around the city and then perform tasks that ranged from diving at The Aquatic Centre to finding art in The Vancouver Art Gallery. We had a blast and did not become one of the nasty couples that we see on The Amazing Race. Money from this event was raised for the The Children's Miracle Network. Many thanks to Dara Sklar of RealtySupport. Dara took the concept of support to Realtors to a whole new level, as she provided directions and info to clues, via cell phone. On Sunday, I put together a tour of open houses encompassing the West End, Kitsalano, Grandview, Mount Pleasant and Commercial Drive for clients in from San Francisco.. We were able to see 6 open houses and I think it let them get a good feel for the different areas. At least we didn't have to complete any tasks!!
