Well we all know we have had some really great Masterpieces done by the artist over the years and we used that
money for my travels and we even gave one to the AKA which made a ton of cash for them...... With that said
I thought what the hell how about a winner take all where the winner is picked by how much there kite sales for to
the public...... Then we put all the money together from all the kites and the artist whos kite sells for the most
gets all the money from all the sales, then as a bonus the winner will pick one kite out of the others and we will
donate that kite to the AKA for auction for them....Posted Image

Here The Artists
1. Ron Gibian (hes in)
2. Bazzer Posted Image (hes in)
3. Amy Doran (shes in)
4. Jose Sainz (hes in)
5. Scott Skinner (hes in)
6. Martin Lester unknown
7. Alden Miller (no can't still putting things back together after the fire)
8. Jon Burkhart (hes in)
9. Scott Hampton unknown
10. Dean Jordan (hes in)
11. Kevin Bayless (hes in)
12. Eliot Shook (hes in)
13. Randy Tom unknown

You have to admit this is going to be a hoot and a fist full of dollars for someone......

All kites will be at Revolution by July 15th and then the bidding will begin and we will take bids all the way
until Aug. 31st midnight. I will post everything on all the social media outlets and thru word of month so
everyone the world over knows about this Masterpiece Challenge, then people can bid on the kite they have
to have for themselves and high bidder owns that kite. Then Revolution takes all the money from the sale
of all the kites and gives it to the winning artist.... I'd also like to remind everyone normal Masterpiece go
for $600.00 and these will be really special so who knows where this will go.......

Ben, can I recommend another builder for your possible consideration,... Dave Ashworth?
It's about time he coughedup something "legal" for you guys! He's retired now (yet again?!), so it's a challenge he very well may be interested in as well as having time for the mission.

on the other note, my wife is gonna' kill me!

Ben, that's a fine group of kite artists you have. I was very flattered to be given a chance to participate and am disappointed that I had to say no. I will watch eagerly to see the kites that are produced because I am sure they will be amazing.

So who is holding the pool on this, I am sure there will be side bets going on! Posted Image

Sorry Ben let me try to get some of this idea straight, The artists are going to sell their kites by auction. The artist who's kite sells for the most money gets all the other artists proceeds from the sales. And when all the kites get sold to different people,, Then the top artist is going to take a kite from away from someone that just won the kite and donate it to AKA,, OUCH!!!

I feel sorry for the person that just bought a Masterpiece kite just to have it taken away from him/her by the winning artist.

Ken McNeill, artisan kite maker of SLK's and Dualies at Blue Moon Kites has done speciality series several times. I think the first was the Moonie Mamba, limited edition, of around 20. Then his other dualie models had Moonies. Ken is in the process of bringing back his Mojo UL in a limited series of 20, they are sold out and they will be the last. Ken is closing Blue Moon and moving on to the next thing, whatever that is. His avid followers might be up for one last Moonie, the interest would be high. . .

My impression of what a Moonie Masterpiece would look like, as always done in KMAC colors.

I think Ben should have you do a batch of your 'barely there' Revs in 1.5 size once you are back up and running to compensate for your lack of participation :blue-cool:
(make mine fire/red thanks)

1. No the artist will send the kites to Revolution for the finish work.
2. Each artist will be indeed making 2 kites one for sale and one for me, hey what can I say but we will donate
one to the AKA from the these extra kites.....
3. Each of the kites will be on the website for people to bid on the one they want highest bid gets that kite.
4. All money raised goes to the artist who's kite got the highest bidder, hope that I explained it better...
P.S. the extra kites will be flown by me at all the event, heck I may even make a stack of them..... BenPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

2 kites each, now I get it, 1 kite each would have worked out not in my favor with my luck.

They are all pretty awesome artists. I am totally interested in seeing what Scott Hampton and Kevin Bayless have to offer. When do we get to see pics??? Oh, and a Moonie Rev would be totally killer! Especially since Ken has retired Blue Moon Kites...

It's also a shame that my favorite artist "Randy Tom" has not committed yet.... Hopefully he will jump in.

Hi Alden...

That's funny! I bet you win :)

Too bad you don't have the time right now; I know you'd give them all a run for the $$



Hi Ben....

This is going to be fun to watch the progression of it ALL.

Agreed......the question is, how many of the sails will he have the highest bid on? :~)

My bet is with Ben getting 8 of the 9 kites so far unless Randy Tom and others get in on it, Ben will have the coolest one/s.
