The picture by the torch, was that the picture of Shania they did with the spinning canvas we saw them do at the show before Shania ran in with the torch???

Also, whose Torch is that hanging next to it???

According to Tracy, Shania used two torches to run the relay. The first torch was used for most of the run up until the stage area where the caldron was. Since Shania took time to wave to the fans during her run, the organizers thought that her torch could run out of gas, so they switched her first torch with a new one right before she took a turn and got up on stage to lit the caldron. The Torch Shania used for most of the run she donated to the STC and that's where it is exhibited. The second torch, the one used to lit up the caldron, was given to the Police for their good work and that's the one you see on the wall at the new building.

If I understood correctly the painting on the wall is a painting of the Shania Torch event, but it is not the one that was painted that day on stage, which is located at City Hall. The painting on the Police bulding wall is much smaller.....

On Saturday night we had a large dinner in the Maple Leaf/STC Theatre part of the Centre. The silent auction went on, with many items signed by Shania and Debbie's cross stitch...great stuff! Afterwords, there was the karaoke part, with good surprises among the participants (including a group rendition of Grease!)...a lot of fun that continued until the early hours...

On Sunday morning we had a brunch at the MacIntyre Arena and then went back to hang out at the Centre where Timmins Chris and Ren made DVDs of the convention photos for the participants. Later in the afternoon we went to have fun at the Mini-Putt and some people did the go-carts as well. At the end, we all went to Casey's for our last dinner all together....

Today was a very hot day in comparison...a really nice summer day in Timmins!

I've always held onto this dream that someday I would be able to make one of these fan trips to Timmins again. Guess my dream was interrupted forever and for always.
