Well Family here's the raffle to end all raffles, we have thru the help of Felix Mottram of the Decorators and the entire team have been able to offer TWO KITES for the "Save Bristol Campaign"..... Felix and The Decorators have gotten some true Masterpieces together which will be sewn by Martin Lester and are designed by Jorgen Moller Hansen and I am here to say these kites are true one of a kinds because they will never be done again.
Let me share what Felix has to say about these kites...
In 1990/91 we approached Revolution Kites and they agreed to make us a set of custom Rev1 sails to a design by Jørgen Møller Hansen. We think that this may have been a 'very early' example of custom designs for Revolution sails! (Image attached, young fliers!)So Family here we are, we will sell 125 tickets for $20 each, we will have two lucky winners (one kite each) and all the money will go for Bristol..... So call or email me with the numbers you want and then I will respond and then at that time you will need to do your payment thru PayPal.
In 1998 a new set of Rev1 sails were made using the original graphic. (Image attached, sculpture on Blackheath)
Jørgen has given us permission to use his design again, for two 1.5 sails sewn by Martin Lester and finished by Bazzer, which are to be raffled for the benefit of The Bristol Kite Festival 2009. (one yellow and one blue)
The Decorators first attended the Bristol Kite Festival in 1988 and hope that we can help get sufficient support to secure the event this year especially after the success of the Revolution focused event last year.
When all tickets are sold or we reach a dead line of July 31st we will pick the winners.
Either call me personally or email me and I'll lock this in for you, make your payment after securing your ticket number(s).... 619-750-8770 or 858-679-5785 or beachbeach13[at]yahoo[dot]com
Please understand this is not for just us but for kiting as a whole, so dig deep and let's as a Family make this happen....... Ben Dantonio
To be extra clear... Before buying, you should contact Ben with your number selection(s) to make sure they're available... Only once he's assigned your number(s) personally, then come back here and buy the corresponding number of tickets.
Available numbers are will be listed at the bottom of this post (taken numbers are marked otherwise), but again, confirm with Ben before purchasing tickets to assure availability.
This drawing will actually be done in the Rev office (probably by Ben with help from one of their employees who don't know any of us).
DO NOT PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS UNTIL YOU'VE CONFIRMED # SELECTIONS WITH BEN.
