No John, that's 62 left! That means that there were 63 sold ... or 50.4% of the tickets were sold ... that's just over half.

Or, did I just fall for a nerd check???

Good morning,

Hello, my name is Maggie, this is my first post on any forum. I went to Blackheath festival 08 and the kite flying bug which had been around for years bit me. I bought my first kite, a JB 1.5 purple rev from kiteworld and it was set up for me at Dunstable kite festival 08. ……….

Hi Maggie

I take it you have seen this, come and say "Hi".

Edit
Oh, and P.S. Welcome to the forum.

Does anyone know when the 'first' custom sails were made by Revolution?

These sails look superb!

It depends on how you define "by Revolution".
Maybe the first were the "Randy Tom ladies". The sails were made by Randy Tom and completed "by Revolution"
Then there is a custom that was originally made for Lee Sedgwick which later became the Hot Rainbow. He returned it to Revolution in October 1990, extensively tested. Photo attached.
Then there were the Decorator REV I's designed by Juergen Moller Hansen, made I believe by Martin Lester and if I recall right were completed "by Revolution"

I thought that the first set of JMH sails were actually made completely by Revolution in 1990. The subsequent sails were sewn by Martin and finished by Revolution.

Felix,
With you being one of the original Decorators, I do believe that your recollection must be much better then mine, thus I will agree with your statement.
What year would this have been?
