On February 12, the 124-year-old Vancouver Rowing Club will become Saxony House, one of the pavilions representing Germany at the Olympics. The public is welcome to watch competitions on plasma screens, meet athletes and enjoy live music. Art and innovation from the Saxon state in Germany are also on display. And you could meet Saxel, Saxony's moose mascot during the Games. If you don't meet Saxel, you can be friends on Facebook
. Saxony House is open noon to 2 a.m. daily with free admission.
When the Winter Games are over, the Vancouver Rowing Club will still be there. It is on the edge of Stanley Park, a short walk from the Vancouver Aquarium, and a bit longer walk from English Bay where you can watch the Vectorial Elevation light show in the evenings during the games.
