This is another in the set of kite obsessed posts I'll be making Wink

As I said before, my team have been invited to the world championships this year. We'd like to make a good show, and not just whilst we're flying. I suppose you could say we're a handmade team: Our team leader is the the kite designer/manufacturer, and whilst it is a business, the kites are all handmade by him and his partner at home. Anyway, he passed some spare ripstop on to me to make up some banners. The team's base colour is black, but we each have a different accent colour (mine's red). We're getting a couple of large banners (4m tall) in black printed with the logo to bookend my series of smaller ones in the team's accent colours.

It looks like a lot, but the team isn't just the flyers (we have 4 currently), it includes all those who make a contribution to the show, the sewists, the ground crew, the choreographer are all included and all have a banner.

This one's propped up agains my hedge, they are about 1.5m tall and deliberately thin so that they don't obscure too much vision. They will be spaced about a person apart.


Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Just to let you all know, my team, the Airheads, came 10th in the World Sport Kite Championships, a respectable position given that we've only been competing for a year. I'm very pleased.

P.S. I've updated with this message on all the project boards I've posted about it on.
