I just want to add that I do not think this is the appropriate thread for this discussion because when it was started it was to stir up some good natured fun about the 64 and the header line just is plain wrong with it saying FAIL to be talking about the 100 kite attempt again.
It deserves its own thread.
You are probably correct.
There is the beginning in this thread of what may turn out to be a number of ideas that just happened to be sparked by the good natured fun approach to what happened in 2010.
A key flier was missing at Portsmouth 2008 as I recall. 47 were flying rather than 48... or something like that! The subsequent comment was about the 2010 Long Beach performance.
Getting 100 fliers set-up to fly is certainly an interesting project.
Getting smaller groups say 12 or 16 plus up to speed is also an exciting project in its own right quite apart from a building block to the very large team scenario.
The challenge of getting 100 plus international fliers together at one venue is the big one! I do not think that an individual 'event' is likely to get the resources to realise this ambition so a different approach may be required.
I hope that this forum can be fixed and that it continues to be the place for focused discussion of these projects.
Maybe I should post this message as a new topic.
