Well I can now share about my newest project that took place the last four days.. Twenty four days ago I was asked by " Warner Brothers " if I could do a four
day show at Comic Con here in San Diego with custom kites with Warner Brothers logo of the new t.v. series V, talk about short notice..... So with the help of
my friends I made it happen, I went to Caroline and had her create the art work for the custom Rev's, had the brothers in Spain print up and finish six kites,
went to some good fliers and begged there help....Posted Image ( Ron D., Tommy, both the Hadzicki brothers, and Daryle G.) Oh yea did I add we gave away 2500 single
line diamond kites to the public that I had rushed to me from Asia..... I must admit this one was stressful and had to really be handled with kid gloves cause
" Warner Brothers " had no real idea what could be done but trusted my knowledge...Posted Image Then to top this all off I had to get everything done from the road as
I was doing what I do on a daily basis.....Posted Image But I got to say it all happened and happened well, my team of fliers did lessons and gave out kites to alot of new
people and did demos non stop for four days, Warner Brothers were happy, the public were happy, and I only have six new gray hairs, so I'd have to say things
went well.......Posted Image On the serious side the Family really came thru for me and made the impossible happen and for this I'm thankful and proud cause thru this
four day event we put Rev flying in front of well over 200,000 people that may have never seen it and we put 2500 kites in peoples hands who may have never
touched kite if this did not happen, then to top it all off we taught lots of people how to fly, what a great chance this was for me......Posted Image So as you can imagine
I'm tired but so jazzed on how thing went that I just can't seem to sit still.... BenPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

enjoy the photos......

So glad to hear it went well Benny. All that stress you were feeling a few short weeks ago seems now to have been for naught. The sails turned out great and it's no surprise WB was happy with the results! Nicely done my friend!!!!!
Cya soon!!!!!
