Go "Back to the Future" with Olympin

With this entry, the Olympin Club is inaugurating a new feature on the club website: a "Back to the Future" series, in which Pam Litz will be looking back at the past 34 years of Olympin Club newsletters and republishing select articles. In the future, we'll highlight the series in the left sidebar of the home page so you know whan a new selection has been added to the website. For this inaugural entry, Pam has selected "The Olympic Housing Phenomenon" by Pete Wade, which discusses the in’s and out’s of the Olympic housing phenomenon. Although published in the December 2009 issue of the newsletter prior to the Vancouver 2010 Games, everything Pete wrote still holds true today and can provide valuable insights for those seeking housing during the Olympics as well as for those considering offering their homes for rent.
