    Colourful, collectable, dynamic and secure - those words best describe

will use at the 2010 Winter Games. The first four ticket designs will be
released at the media event on Thursday in the BCLC 2010 Winter Games Dome, a
custom designed, 450-square metre, four-dome tent structure featuring
full-colour exterior murals, lighting, audio visual, and unique interactive
sport experiences. VANOC and British Columbia Lottery Corporation
representatives will be on hand. VANOC officials will discuss the ticket
designs, as well as the high-tech security features of the tickets. On
