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?

John


John,

I said that I thought it was 1990!

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Then there is a custom that was originally made for Lee Sedgwick which later became the Hot Rainbow.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 just managed to locate images of the second JMH design which we flew at WSIKF in 1994 as attached. My reason for trying to locate an image of the graphic is because I believe that a set of Rev2 sails were made as well. They have gone missing. Obviously we would very much like to locate them.

Felix according to the order in 3/13/90 there was a set of Rev 2's on the table at this time. I also remember Joe talking about an order from Pontiac for 3 kites in this time frame with the Pontiac logo on them..... Lets ask the mistress to Revolution kiting, Lolly could you shed some
light on the Dec. kites and the Pontiac kites...... Hey what can I say she knows where all the skeletons are buried... :innocent: So Lolly
any ideas on dates for the first Dec. kites and did they do Rev 2's also..... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

Hi All,

John B: If buying more than one ticket, do we make more than one separate PayPal payment?

Ben,

I thought that the Rev2s were in the second design which we had in 1994.

Typically I'd be on it (was on the last one), but I'm stressing every penny at the moment.

Don't bully the poor bloke, Felix, I've had money worries myself in the past it's not fun and it's not made easier by mates joking about it. If the man is watching the pennies we should respect that, I've had a few big bills myself lately and had to shelve a couple of ideas.

Please give the man a break.

I have known Felix almost 20 years. I do believe Felix did not have any bad intentions at all.

edited jnm - I knew something was wrong in my text, now it is correct.

There was no malice intended as I am sure JB (and others) understood. '<grins>' is, I think, widely recognised...

It's a sore spot at the moment (I did step away from the keyboard), but I took no actual offense.

Thanks anyway Bob. :D *hugs*
