BCP063 - Calgary (Calgary Tower)
So we've got some brass cap locations loaded into the GPS and decide to do some in downtown Calgary. "That 063 looks like it's around the Calgary Tower", we say to each other. We walk up and the GPS is pointing us right inside the front door. "Ohhhhh," we say to ourselves. "This one," as we stare knowingly at each other. Is it time to let the cat out of the bag? Is it time to let Spidermn, the Green Goblin, Harry Potter, the CIA and KGB agents, and all the others in on the story behind this monument and why they can have so much fun at this tower. "Sure," we say to each other. So ...
In the fall of 1987 The4B's got into the Olympic spirit. Some one had suggested a big huge olympic flame on the Calgary Tower, but how to get it up their. The4B's happen to be into that kind of thing so after a phone call the job was ours. In the picture you can see (if you look real close) B1 flying the big Sikorsky helicopter, lowering the needle (aka BCP063) into place. B2, not afraid of heights, is standing atop the Tower beside the big torch/bowl, directing operations. B3 is flying the helicopter this picture was taken from. And B4 is capturing the moment for all to see.
We're glad to see Spidey, the Green Goblin, Harry Potter, the CIA, KGB, and all other geocachers scrambling all over our little project. It makes it all worth while. Oh, and the Olympics were good, too.
