I am sick and sorry to say that my kite bag and line bag were stolen from my jeep in my driveway last night. If you would please look at this link, I could use any help you can give us. All my kites were in that bag, including my custom revs.

Thank you for your help

Jesus, Amy I am so sorry I so hope you get those back un-damaged.

Sheesh it's bad enough to loose kites what makes it worse is when they are all one of a kinds.

I'll keep my eyes out in my usual spots from picking up used Rev's

Good Luck and again My Condolences, Jim

Ive put the link to the list on our forum over here[Northern Kite Group].You may be Thousands of miles away,but that list of kites wont be able to surface anywhere without someone ringing the Alarm Bell and its a SMALL WORLD we all live in.Try and sleep[easy said than done] with the conselation that for those one or two BAD APPLES.Thers still MILLIONS of good ones,and many will stand up and be counted if they can.Its early days yet.

Fingers Crossed and God Willing.They will turn up.


Man i HATE SCUM BAGS.The thought of steeling KITES though.Whats going on in ther heads.

I felt so sad when I read your message. I know how you must feel having had my Laptop, Bins, Camcorder etc.from the boot of my car. Never to be returned.

I feel sure these wonderful designs will show up some where sometime soon. The thieves probably have no idea of the unique nature of your Rev's.

Will be thinking about you and look forward to seeing some good news!

OMG, that's beyond Awful, Amy! I'm so sorry to read this!!! I'll start keeping an eagle eye on places like Ebay incase the person who stole it knows what they have. :( Thankfully you have all of the Kiting Community behind you.

First the Bad News – One of a kind kites are by definition irreplaceable.
Now the Good News – They are One of a kind kites and not exactly discreet (you know yourself what crowd pullers Rev’s are) whoever has them won’t be able to fly them and now, with all the publicity, they won’t be able to sell them on either. With luck you may get them back. :angry:

You have my sympathy, it's a violation.

thanks everyone, I have contacted the radio stations, and i am going to pass out a flyer to the businesses around here to watch the dumpsters... all I can do now, is hope.
I appreciate everything you are all doing.

You'll excuse me if I don't go checking dumpsters, I can't see them showing up in my back yard ;)

BTW - it has just occurred to me that it might be worth keeping an eye out for them on EBAY, though I don't know what you could do if you saw them.
