I volunteer with the local animal shelter, and for its annual golf tournament they turn the putting green at the golf course into "Putting for Paws" for the kids. I was in charge of making some boards the kids could putt through. I made three - two dogs and one with kittens. I made them out of the poster board/foam board stuff, and put sticks on the back to prop them up with. I didn't factor in the wind, and they kept blowing down so I had to prop them up against the little flags on the putting green. Otherwise, I think they turned out really well.

Here's an action shot:

Those are great!  I hope they use them again next year!  For the wind, maybe you can just cut some holes in the white areas for the wind to pass through, like they do with large banners at stores and such.  Someone out there will likely know if that's a waste of time or not.

What a wonderful cause.  I like the drawings you made and hope they helped to make the day a success.
