Question:

Does anyone know where I can find a schedule of televised Olympic Archery Coverage? Thanks. Paul B.

Response:

In the USA, check out www.nbc.com for the actual schedule of TV coverage of the Olympics.         Marty Sasaki

Response:

Or better yet, for coverage in the U S, go to www.nbcolympics.com/archery Wayne

Response:

Can anyone help please? I’ve been trying to find accommodation in Sydney (especially Kings Cross), during the Olympics. The US travel agents (Cartan) are asking around $650USD per night pub-stay & around $800USD for any sort of hotel. Even though I could just about find that sort of money, it would mean cancelling my new year 2001 trip to Hawaii – and I REALLY don’t want to do that. It seems like there are hundreds of separate webrings, etc. that cover this, but there seems to be no easy way to say – I want a room in a certain place, in a certain price range – who has a matching vacancy. After a lousy trip to Atlanta, I’m really looking forward to a better Olympic experience – if only I can find a room. I don’t want much – a room, a bed, preferably private bathroom, and a restaurant onsite or close, for food. Any ideas?

You have left your run way too late – Sydney is not as big as it would like to think it is and just about every hotel room in the City was taken by the Lords of the Rings 5 years ago.  BTW did you know that the main Olympic venue is at least 30 minutes west of the CBD and the outer venues (rowing, equestrian, baseball etc) further west again.  Many tour operators are using caravan parks up to 2 hours away.  There are still homestay places – see the Ray White website for official listings.  Also try www.hawkesburyvalley.com for B&B in western Sydney – near the rowing/canoeing venue.

an express train from Central to Olympic Park during the Olympics will only take around 15-20 minutes.Staying in the Sydney CBD would actually be very easy to get there due to the frequency of the trains.Test events so far has proven this to be the easiest way of getting there. and the outer venues > (rowing, equestrian, baseball etc) further west again.

All previous Olympics have had their venues located a long way from each other.Believe it or not,Sydney is really the first games to have alll its events (excluding some soccer matches in other cities) located in the one city.  Many tour > operators are using caravan parks up to 2 hours away.  There are still > homestay places – see the Ray White website for official listings.  Also > try www.hawkesburyvalley.com for B&B in western Sydney – near the > rowing/canoeing venue.

Homestay would be the best and probably cheapest way to go!

I cannot speak for AU, but if it is anywhere similar to my experiences in other countries, I wouldn’t do a thing until roughly 2 weeks before your planned departure time. Typically, in such events, the early bird gets screwed. This was seen, for example in the US during the LA olympics, the BC Expo, the Y2K New Years events, too. Some of the places dropped their prices by 80% during the 2 weeks preceeding New Years Day. Do your research now. Learn their asking prices. Then, make an offer discounted by *at least* 75%. That $800 price probably will be $100.

I cannot speak for AU, but if it is anywhere similar to my experiences in other countries, I wouldn’t do a thing until roughly 2 weeks before your planned departure time. Typically, in such events, the early bird gets screwed. This was seen, for example in the US during the LA olympics, the BC Expo, the Y2K New Years events, too. Some of the places dropped their prices by 80% during the 2 weeks preceeding New Years Day. Do your research now. Learn their asking prices. Then, make an offer discounted by *at least* 75%. That $800 price probably will be $100.

Can anyone help please? I’ve been trying to find accommodation in Sydney (especially Kings Cross), during the Olympics. The US travel agents (Cartan) are asking around $650USD per night pub-stay & around $800USD for any sort of hotel. Even though I could just about find that sort of money, it would mean cancelling my new year 2001 trip to Hawaii – and I REALLY don’t want to do that. It seems like there are hundreds of separate webrings, etc. that cover this, but there seems to be no easy way to say – I want a room in a certain place, in a certain price range – who has a matching vacancy. After a lousy trip to Atlanta, I’m really looking forward to a better Olympic experience – if only I can find a room. I don’t want much – a room, a bed, preferably private bathroom, and a restaurant onsite or close, for food. Any ideas?

You have left your run way too late – Sydney is not as big as it would like to think it is and just about every hotel room in the City was taken by the Lords of the Rings 5 years ago.  BTW did you know that the main Olympic venue is at least 30 minutes west of the CBD and the outer venues (rowing, equestrian, baseball etc) further west again.  Many tour operators are using caravan parks up to 2 hours away.  There are still homestay places – see the Ray White website for official listings.  Also try www.hawkesburyvalley.com for B&B in western Sydney – near the rowing/canoeing venue.

an express train from Central to Olympic Park during the Olympics will only take around 15-20 minutes.Staying in the Sydney CBD would actually be very easy to get there due to the frequency of the trains.Test events so far has proven this to be the easiest way of getting there. and the outer venues > (rowing, equestrian, baseball etc) further west again.

All previous Olympics have had their venues located a long way from each other.Believe it or not,Sydney is really the first games to have alll its events (excluding some soccer matches in other cities) located in the one city.  Many tour > operators are using caravan parks up to 2 hours away.  There are still > homestay places – see the Ray White website for official listings.  Also > try www.hawkesburyvalley.com for B&B in western Sydney – near the > rowing/canoeing venue.

Homestay would be the best and probably cheapest way to go!
